Today I want to share one of my favorite stamp sets and coordinating thinlits that will be retiring at the end of this month: the Petal Palette stamp set (#145785 wood mount) or (#145788 clear mount) and Petals & More Thinlits (#145655). This is a one of those sets that will be greatly missed! I really love the sentiments and the font of the words in this stamp set AND the thinlits are such a great added touch. I have used these thinlits on so many cards. The branch with the leaves is so nice, and the label fits a wide number of words in many of my stamp sets. Here are just few samples of cards that I have made using this stamp set and coordinating thinlits.Check out the gold filigree detail on this card. I cut it out of a Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) using the beautiful thinlit in the set.Here is that great branch thinlit with some stamped and cut out flowers from the set. It’s nice how many of the images have a coordinating thinlit to cut them out. Much easier that scissors! AND that great label too!This card has the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder (#143704) in the background. I used my Stampin’ Blends markers to highlight the leaves in the Mint Macaron color.
This card has some Silver Embossing Paste (#145646) added to the background piece and some Silver Metallic Thread (#138402) to give it a little sparkle.I added the embossed stems in the background of this card using the Petal Pair Embossing Folders (#145656), which is also retiring with this current catalog. There are some Glitter Enamel Dots (#146934), for a little touch of bling, on this one too. This last card has some really pretty shine added with Frost White Shimmer Paint (#147046), to the image layer of the card. It gives it a great pearlescent affect, which I LOVE! I also added the “Happy” from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies (#147912) to complete this card.
Well, that’s it for today….just a couple things from my big pile of retiring items.
