Happy Stampin’ Monday!
The day has gotten away from me! My son did not have school today, so we enjoyed the day by spending it together.
Today’s project is a sneak peek at the Hand-Penned Petals photopolymer stamp set from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, which launches on May 4th. It also features one of the beautiful new Designer Series Paper packs, Hand-Penned DSP. The stamp set and DSP will be available to order on May 4th.
For the card base, I used Pool Party cardstock measuring 8-1/2″x5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.
The DSP measures 4″x5-1/4″.
The banner, measuring 1-1/2″x4-1/2″, was made using a scrap of Pool Party and was then distressed using a Blending Brush and a Mint Macaron ink pad.
The Basic White square was actually a scrap I had in my case (I have a ton of Basic White scraps, so the file folder method I used cannot hold them all, lol). I originally cut this piece using the Curvy Dies for another project. I cut it down to 3″x3″, then distressed it with a Mint Macaron ink pad. The Blending Brush gives is such a soft distress to avoid the harsh lines of the Basic White against the soft colored DSP.
On another scrap of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment using a Mint Macaron ink pad, then trimmed it down to 2-1/4″x7/8″. I suppose you could cut the piece first and then trim it down, but today was an odd day.
On yet another scrap of Basic White, I stamped my image using a Basic Gray ink pad. Then used the following stamp pads to fill it in with color. Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, and Mint Macaron. To get the lighter Highland Heather flower, I stamped off one time before stamping on my image. (Stamp Off is when you stamp the image on a scrap paper first to lighten the ink before stamping onto your image, without reininking the stamp.)
I cut the image out with the coordinating die set and mounted it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
