Petal Pizzazz - Act 1, Scene 2
Petal Pizzazz from Stampin' Up! is definitely one of my favorite sets. We made this card in my Birthday Stamp-a-Stack this week. At a Stamp-a-Stack you make 10 cards - 2 each of 5 different designs. The cost includes all the card materials and envelopes. It is a great way to explore stamping and also go home with a bunch of cards.
This card also featured the new Fifth Avenue Floral set to stamp the whisper white ink on the gray paper. Using an open design like these flowers to stamp white on a dark color creates a unique backdrop for the flowers and leaves. Stamp the same flowers with darker colors on a light background to simulate your own custom pattern paper.
I'll have more Stamp-a-Stacks coming up so visit again for an upcoming class schedule or e-mail me at email@example.com.
