The Pansy Petals suite is my favorite collection in the new catalog. I am partial to pansies and this DSP, stamp set and dies are truly amazing!! Having the Pansy Petals bundle offers so much versatility creating lovely pansies.

The stamp set is Distinktive which creates realistic pansy images easily. I love that the layering stamps off so many options to create wonderful color combos.

  


I highly recommend cutting a 2” strip of Basic White cardstock and playing with different color combos. Remember to stamp the larger image first choosing a lighter color and then layer with darker colors. Don’t forget to add in some stems and leaves too!

TIP: If your ink pad is too juicy, your image may not have as much detail. To fix this, you can take a bone folder, spoon or butter knife and push the ink from the center of the pad to the edges. I find that this works better than stamping off.


Now that you have a bunch of pansies and leaves stamped and cut, grab some of the gorgeous DSP, 2021-2023 In-color cardstock and create a bunch of beautiful cards! I love having the pre-stamped and cut images ready to go. I can sit down later and make a few cards quickly. It’s so fun and relaxing matching the pansy pieces to the patterns in the DSP.

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Inspiration Hop. We are so happy you are hopping along with us.

We wanted to make sure to share these beautiful projects with you all as well. We hope you gain new  tips, techniques, and of course tons of inspiration. Once you are done with each post, don’t forget to keep hopping along by clicking on the next name in the list.

Pansies are one of my favorite flowers. With the shape of the flower and the bright cheery colors, they look like little happy flower faces!  I knew as soon as I saw the catalog that I had to have the Pansy Petals Suite.  I also know that I wanted to use vellum to make some pansies. I think that the sheer look of vellum lends itself to the delicate petals of a pansy. When I saw that there was shimmer vellum in the new In Colors, well, I had to have that too. Not only was I excited about the vellum with a shimmer finish, but Ombre glimmer paper. I was a happy happy girl!  When Patty Bennett asked me to present for our tram event, I know exactly what I wanted to make. This is a card design that I have done before and it was inspired by Amanda Charlesworth, aka Scrimping Mommy, a demonstrator in the UK.  Check out her tutorial here.  

    


The Pansy Dies are amazing!! There are so many combinations when layering the pieces.  The embossed detail is so life like.  The color combos are endless!!
