Hand-Penned Petals for Sunday Stamps!

 Hello, and happy Sunday crafty friends. Today, I have floral creation to share with you using an "oldy but goody" stamp set.  The Hand-Penned Petals (item 155070) is a top personal favorite of mine that first made its appearance in 2021. 

I love the whimsical feel of the images and the fact that you can color the flowers or stamp color into it.  For this card, I did a little of both. I colored the large flowers with a Pale Papaya Stampin' Blend and then added Calypso Coral ink over the top with the stamp set flower images.

I stamped 2 sets of flowers and then cut some to separate them to create a circular frame around my die cut sentiment.

My card design follows the new challenge at  Sunday Stamps! Challenge #302 below:

For fun I added some Granny Apple Green die cut leaves from the Dainty Delight Bundle (item160675)  to accent my flowers. I love that I can cut the larger die cut leaf into smaller groupings to use as an accent. They are the perfect size for many sets I have.

Of course I had to use other new products for my creation. The sentiment is from the Something Fancy Bundle (item 160425), and the DSP is a FREE Sale-a-bration item called Dandy Designs (item 160836).

A few white Enamel Dot Essentials (item 160751) finish off my card.
