Life is so much better with you in it (Petal Palette)

Life is so much better with you in it

Hi, it is such an exciting time in the Stampin’ Up! year.  I  have now seen the new catalogue and let me tell you, you are going to LOVE it!  There are some amazing stamp sets and papers coming.  I will share more as soon as I can!  If you saw my Facebook Live last week you will have had a few sneak peeks at what is coming, including the new style inkpads and the new In Colours!

It’s been a while since I have shared any ideas with you all and I thank you for your patience.  My little distraction, Jake, is nearly 12 weeks old and he’s been home for just over two weeks.  He is a bundle of energy and cuteness.  I am completely smitten with him.  He’s learning so quickly but we still have a long way to go with his training.

Here’s my Jake…


I may be biased (okay, I am totally biased) but I think he is adorable!  While he was amusing himself with a ball today I took the opportunity to craft.  It has been a while!  The first thing on my agenda was to finish the card I was making when Jake arrived.  I had completed the background and it has been sitting on my desk untouched for all this time.

Here’s the card…

Life is so much better with you in it

For the above card, I stamped and embossed the floral image from the gorgeous Petal Palette stamp set.  I then used my Aqua Painter and some Pool Party ink to add a little extra interest to the background.  I’ve done this technique many times in the past as it is one of my favourite techniques.  I love this look!

Next step was to stamp, colour and die cut the bird.  After cutting out the bird, I immediately thought of a birdcage which then made me decide to use silver foil sheets for the rest of the decorative elements and silver embossing powder for the sentiment.  I thought it would add a bit of a wow factor to the card.

I used the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends marker to colour the Whisper White Organza Ribbon as I wanted it to match the card perfectly.   All that was left was to put it all together.

I think this is a really pretty card and one which you could easily replicate with other colour combinations.  I hope you’ll give it a go!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
