Hello March! Welcome birth month! To celebrate my birth month, I will be posting a birthday card all month long. Today I made a simple single layer card using the now retired Painted Petals stamp set from Stampin Up. It is fun to create layers using just ink. Happy Day to you. I am looking forward to celebrating my birth month with you.
Today I went back to the basics and just did straight up stamping using the retired Painted Petals stamp set from Stampin Up. These cards were designed the same but I just added the butterfly to bring in another color of ink.
Today’s post is a throwback to a favorite retired Stampin Up stamp set-Painted Petals . The Painted Petals set allows you to create layering without creating excess using the images of the stamps.
I have been giving my retired products a real workout in anticipation of the new catalog items coming soon. I used what I call the “magic” DSP to colorize the paper with Delightful Dijon ink and the buffed it to reveal the white embossed flowers. The striped piece was stamped with the Brushstrokes #138952 background stamp. For the focal panel, I pulled out the Painted Petals (retired) stamp set. Love all the layers work well together.
Today’s card is all about being artistic with the images from the retired Stampin Up Painted Petals stamp set. I had this set for over a year and never used it. Sad part is it is retired but I gave the set a full work out to make a gift set of cards. Be prepared to see other cards in the coming days that I made with this set. For the background, I stamped the striped pattern in 4 colors and then added the popped rectangle with the tulips and sentiment.

Today’s card was created using the now retired Painted Petals stamp set from Stampin Up. I just created layers using the different images from the stamp set and different colored inks to create the collage effect. The best part is that it is layers without the weight and bulk. I have had the Painted Petals stamp set for over a year and never used it. So I pulled it out and stamped away creating a set of cards to give to a friend for her birthday.
I always try to have sympathy cards on hand so I am ready to pop a card in the mail. For today’s card I used a strip of Irresistibly Yours DSP and brayered it with Wisteria Wonder ink and I added a piece of coordinating ruffled ribbon along the edge. For the main panel, I used the Stampin Up Painted Petals (now retired) stamp set and paired it with the Best Thoughts #138700 stampset.
The Best Thoughts stamp set is one of Stampin Up’s all new Hostess sets in the 2015-2016 annual catalog.
Today’s card is just plain pretty. I paired the Stampin Up Painted Blooms DSP (now retired) with the also retired Painted Petals stamp set to create a beautiful all occasions card. The sentiment is stamped on a Deco Label piece and matted with a larger Deco Label cut from the Deco Labels Collection Framelits #130102. I finished the card with a white satin bow.
Today’s post is a 2fer post featuring the Happy Bunny #137152 single stamp from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. As usual Cammie did a fantastic job working with this stamp 2 different ways to achieve completely fantastic looks. For the first card, Cammie brayered and sponged the background. She added the tulips from the Painted Petals #137146 stampset and then stamped, colored and handcut the adorable dancing bunny.
The disco bunny on the right is absolutely adorable and also features the Stampin Up Happy Bunny single stamp from the occasions catalog. For the main panel, Cammie used the Confetti Stars Border Punch #135861 and place the hand cut disco bunny beneath the rhinestone bedazzled disco ball that is suspended with a piece of 1/8 inch silver ribbon #132137. She added the beams of light with white craft ink. The panel was added to a mambo strip textured with the Stampin Up Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #135817. I am so amazed at how these 2 cards could be so different and how happy the recipients of these cards will be.
