Hey, everyone! There's a new kit debuting today at Taylored Expressions: the Petal Prints Cardmaking Kit and I designed it! I hope you'll love this unique, rustic floral set and all of the design possibilities that come along with to create for all sorts of occasions throughout the year. I have three cards to share with you that share lots of different ways to create with the kit and add-on elements!

Here's a look at the projects that I created with the kit:


This first card features the main floral image created with the Petal Prints Stamp & Stencil Combo set. I stamped the floral image in Chocolate Truffle ink on Toffee cardstock and used the coordinating stencils to add color. The stencils line up with the stamped design and the stem image is etched into the stencils to guide the stencil layer alignment. For the largest flower I used Blue Raspberry ink (shaded with Tropical Punch) and Blueberry ink for the flower center. For the medium flower I used Mango (shaded with Honey) and Mushroom for the flower center. For the smallest flower I used Candy Corn (shaded with Pumpkin) and Cherry Pop for the flower center. For the leaves I used Avocado (shaded with Olive) ink.


The Petal Prints Pattern stamp set includes all of the detail elements to build your own flowers using the coordinating die cuts or you can use the images to build patterns, backgrounds, and more! On this card, I added a few stamped pattern details around the floral design that are stamped with Toffee ink on the Toffee cardstock for a tone on tone look. I also created a few elements to add to the floral design using foam adhesive to add extra dimension to the design.

For the sentiment, I used a Foil It - Hello Lovely panels that I foiled with Gold Deco Foil and then used the coordinating Hello Lovely dies to cut out the 'happy birthday' sentiment. It's added to the card with foam adhesive. The finishing touch on all of the cards that I am sharing today is Gold Glitter Drops sprinkled through out each design and you'll also notice that I added lots of splatters with Chocolate Truffle liquid watercolor and Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White ink!


For this next card, I stamped the patterns from the Petal Prints Patterns stamp set onto the coordinating Petal Prints die cuts to build several flowers. The patterns are all stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink onto different colors of cardstock and I added shading to the different elements with Blender Brushes. The largest flower is cut out of Blue Raspberry cardstock (shaded with Tropical Punch ink) and the flower center is cut out of Blueberry cardstock. The medium flower is cut out of Mango cardstock (shaded with Honey ink) and the flower center is cut out of Mushroom cardstock. The smallest flower is cut out of Candy Corn cardstock (shaded with Pumpkin ink) and the flower center is cut out of Cherry Pop cardstock. The leaves are cut out of Olive cardstock that is shaded with Olive ink.


The flowers are added around a sentiment from The Insiders - Petal Prints that is foiled with Gold Deco Foil. The flowers are assembled and added to the panel with foam adhesive and I tucked the leaves around the flowers, adhering them directly to the panel and then trimming off anything that extended out beyond the edge of the panel.


For this last card, I foiled a panel from Foil It - Petal Prints with Gold Deco Foil. Color is added to the flowers and leaves using the stencils from the Petal Prints Stamp & Stencil Combo set. While the images don't line up, all of the shape sizes in the stencils match the florals on the Foil It - Petal Prints panels. Just mask off the shapes to use the stencils to add color to the designs! The ink colors that I used for this card are the same as the first card that I shared above.


The 'hello lovely' sentiment is from one of the Foil It - Hello Lovely panels and is foiled with Gold Deco Foil. I cut out the sentiment with the coordinating die from the Hello Lovely die collection and added it to the card with foam adhesive.
