Concord & 9th November Release // Darling Petals

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing two pretty floral cards made with two new Concord & 9th products, the Darling Petals Turnabout Stamp and Darling Petals Die sets.

I decided to stamp elements from the Darling Petals stamp set on craft paper for the first card. I started by stamping solid images in white pigment ink so that the colors I stamped on top would show up a little better. I stamped the other flower layers on top of the white images using an assortment of ink colors. I used the die set for the darling sentiment and then stamped “to my” and “friend” in Versafine vintage sepia ink.

Since the pattern on the card was a little bottom heavy, I added a little twine bow to the top of the card, plus a few clear droplets to add some sparkle.

I was excited to try a turnabout stamp for the second card I made. I had to do it the hard way, though, because I don’t yet have a stamp positioner large enough to accommodate the stamp! So, I marked the middle of a 6×6 card panel and the middle of the turnabout stamp and lined everything up by sight as I went. I think it came out ok for having to do it manually! However, you don’t have to be like me! Especially if you have a full-sizeMmisti or other stamp positioner. There are lots of good youtube tutorials on how to use this particular kind of stamp, and you can find Angie’s video for the Darling Petals turnabout stamp here.

So, I started by stamping the background, then cut it down to a size I liked. I added the sentiment elements in the same way I did for the first card, except that I popped up the hello on a piece of craft with some foam tape.

Since I didn’t have colored card stock to match my background, I just swiped some ink from an ink pad directly onto some white card stock to match my color scheme a little better.

Both cards came together quickly and easily, which to me is the sign of a great stamp set! And I think the elements here are nice and versatile – you can quickly create a nice, pretty background with the turnabout stamp, but the other elements of the set free you up to make your own patterns or focal points, too!
