Petal Pazazz With Added Pazazz!

Hi Everyone,

This post is a few days early as to not interfere with the Royal Blog I'm giving you a few days to play with the new sketch ...sort of a sneak peek!! So enjoy and I'll see you soon.

I’ve got a treat for you today. It’s another sketch challenge from Stamping 411

I sure hope you’ll play along. I haven’t had this “Petal Pazzaz” off the shelf in a very long time. So I decided to pull it down and see what I could do. I had seen a background done by Rose Marie Diehl and fell in love with it and wanted to incorporate it into this card.

Petal Pazazz 003

Isn’t the background paper just delightful? that’s the part I borrowed from Rose. Too cool!! You punch out a few different size circles and place the negative on your mat and sponge different colors in. Thanks Rosie for the great idea!! They I ran it through the big shot using the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder soon to be released. Okay so that's the background. I used Pixie Pink and Crushed Curry for the colors by the way.

I used a strip of Razzle Dazzle DSP running across the card and then added a strip of Crushed Curry to tie everything in.

The flower is stamped on white using the largest flower in the Petal Pazazz Set. I inked with Pixie Pink and then Kissed it with my Stripped Stamp to remove a bit of color on the flowers to add the texture look. I made three of those and cut them out, scrunched them up and ruffled their feathers so to speak…..then stacked with dimensionsals in between. The center of the flower is done using my secret recipe I will share soon. I promise!

The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black by the way before I ran it through the Big Shot.

Card dimensions:

Whisper white Card foldover 4 1/2 x 11

White mat: 4 x 5 1/4

DSP: 2 3/4 x 4 1/4
