Penned & Painted Handmade Card

Perfectly Penned Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, I made a simple handmade card with the Penned & Painted stamp set.  Wow is this ever a beautiful stamp set!  It's 2 step stamping at its finest.  My Mom and Dad and 3 of sons and their families all live out of state.  Sometimes I miss them so much that it hurts.

Do you like the look of a label on this one layer card?  Surprise, it's not a label, but the Labeler Alphabet Stamp set.  The neat part about this stamp set is that I can say anything I want with stamps.

Stamping Flowers and Leaves

I used a stamping technique called masking to stamp the flowers and leaves.  First, I created a mask by stamping my flower image on post it notes.  These are the masks.  Next, I stamped my flowers where I wanted them on my card and covered them with the Post It masks.  And then, I stamped my leaves.  

Penned & Painted

Using the masks makes the leaves look like they are tucked behind the flowers instead of floating in odd places.  After the leaves and flowers were in place, I went back and stamped my flower layers.  The bigger flower was stamped with Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon Inks.  The smaller flower is layers of Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Delightful Dijon.
