Pink Petal Pizzazz

Stampin up petal pizzazz SC221

Last night I was up late stamping and this weeks Splitcoast Sketch Challenge (SC221) popped up in my inbox.  Confident I wasn't going to fall asleep any time soon, I put together this card in the wee hours using the SCS sketch and Stampin' Up!'s Petal Pizzazz stamp set.

I stamped and snipped out the top and bottom flowers, Regal Rose on Very Vanilla card stock. TIP: The touch of yellow in the Very Vanilla card stock turned my color closer to Cameo Coral.  The center flower is Pink Pirouette stamped on Pink Pirouette card stock.  TIP: Stampin' Up!'s Scallop Circle Punch lines up beautifully with this middle stamp. Tr?s cool!  The flowers were layered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The leaves were inked in Kiwi Kiss (over Very Vanilla), snipped and layered over Close to Cocoa and Pink Pirouette.  TIP:  For the subtle dot pattern, I used Stampin' Up!'s Exclusive Backgrounds I Texturz Plates and a Big Shot.  Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper over Pink Pirouette make up the patterned "diamond."

My Very Vanilla card base is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and scored at the top.  I layered Close to Cocoa Textured card stock on top and jazzed up the corners with 1/4" Circles in Cameo Coral (an easy way to "fake" a brad).  Stampin' Up!'s 1/4" Circle Punch is retired.  TIP:  As an alternative, you can use the large hole punch of a Crop-A-Dile (108362).  It's such a multi-tasker.  Or, simply substitute brads or 1/2" Circles (104390, 1/2" Circle Punch).

The sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess Level 1).  TIP:  I isolated the two lines of text by inking the entire stamp in Close to Cocoa and carefully rubbing the ink off the words I wanted removed before stamping.  I had an extra snipped out petal (I'm never sure how many to use) and tucked it behind the sentiment.  Nifty.
