AWHT Colour Creations #37 Petal Pink

Petal Pink with Fragrant Flowers Fancy Fold

Hello. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We are working though the Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order, focussing on one colour each week.

This week’s Blog Hop is focussing on a pale pink called Petal Pink. Petal Pink is part of the Subtles Colour Family and is a gorgeous colour. I know Petal Pink is not some of my colleagues favourite, however, I love this pink that is a bit peachy & muted. This colour is lovely when used for a range of flowers, baby cards, and the like. 

Petal Pink is produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads re-inkers); Stampin' Write Markers; Stampin' Blends Combo; Subtles Designer Series Paper as well as Country Floral Lane, Country Gingham, Favored Flowers (Sale-a-bration), Regency Park, Delicate Desert, Dandy Designs, Abigail Rose, Tea Boutique, Pretty Prints, Design a Daydream Host, Sweet Talk (Clearance), Flowering Fields, Subtles DSPs; plus By the Bay, Texture Chic, Dry Brushed Metallic Speciality Designer Series Paper, Love Treats Kits, Enjoy the Adventure  & Texture Chic Memories & More Cards & Envelopes; Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes, Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More card pack; Petal Pink Soft Polyester Ribbon, Cotton Ribbon Combo and Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots, Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Solid Faceted Gems, Elegant Faceted Gems, For Everything Fancy Sequins. Wow oh Wow, what a solid list demonstrating the colour's versatility.

Petal Pink card-stock, ink, Stampin' Blends, Favored Flowers DSP and Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots have been used in this project plus a range of non-Petal Pink bits and pieces. Here is my card:

I had a few ideas when starting out, but the card morphed into something quite different.  However, water-colouring some flowers was an initial idea that eventuated. Just before starting work on this project I noticed a rose that had been knocked from one of my bushes - this inspired my flower colouring.

I love the rose above with the beauty of the pale pinky orange with brighter pink edges plus. While my rose is different I water-coloured 2 floral arrangements from the Fragrant Flowers stamp set. They were stamped in Versamark ink on Shimmery White card-stock and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool. A number of the small flower & leaves were also gold heat embossed. All the images were coloured with Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen Inks. Some were coloured more strongly and others were more subtlety coloured. Once dry, the images were die cut with coordinating Dies from the Fragrant Flowers dies.

A Basic White card-stock card front was die cut with a curvy Around the Bend dies. The die used also cuts out a curvy strip of holes - its gorgeous. A side B piece of the delightful Favoured Flowers Sale-a-bration DSP was used as the background panel that was adhered to a Thick Basic White card base. The white die cut card front was popped up on Dimensionals.

The buds were fussy cut away and the darker water-coloured floral spray was cut apart so the flowers could be separated when rearranged. I ended up using only one darker flower. The floral arrangement was adhered in place with either Dimensionals or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Love for You dies were used to cut out some words in Gold Metallic Foil. Some Adhesive sheet was added to the back of the foil to make adhering the words in place so easy. Some White Glittered Organdy ribbon was coloured with the Light Petal Pink Blend before being cut into 3 pieces length-wise. Only 2 strips were used to tie a double bow. A strand of gold that had been retained from some deconstructed Gold Elegant Trim, was also tied into a bow. The bows were positioned with Glue Dots. Some Petal Pink Adhesive-backed Milky Dots were scattered around to finish the card front.

The card inner is the fancy fold section. As the card opens the sentiment labels pop up to highlight the sentiment itself. It is called a Sliding Pop Up fold. The Something Fancy labels were used to die cut labels from Basic White card-stock and the same Favored Flowers DSP. I saw this fancy fold demonstrated by Susan Campfield. She is a demo in the United States so I needed to convert her dimensions to suit our A4 sizing. I created the fold without rewatching Susan's uTube so didn't create it perfectly. I needed to undo a couple of sections so will try this fold again to refine sizing and process. The card inner was also decorated with pieces of DSP mounted on some Gold Metallic foil. Some small water-coloured flowers were also added.

A Basic White C6 envelope was stamped with the larger floral stamp using Petal Pink Classic Stampin' ink. I stamped on the front of the envelope and also on the back flap.

I designed this card for a special friend's birthday, however, it could also be used for a Valentines Day card or a Friendaversary. 

Thank you so much for dropping in. I so appreciate it.

  1. What an amazing fancy fold, Andrea! Your stunning flower from your garden is so beautiful, what a wonderful inspiration for a wonderful card.

  2. Great inspiration from a beautiful rose using the selected SU inks. Love the new curvy border die cut propped above the DSP with dimensionals. The Gold accents with Petal Pink perfectly match.

  3. Stunning card Andrea, lovely two tone colouring of the flowers and what a surprise awaits inside the card

  4. Andrea, I love the heat embossing of your softly water coloured roses, but I adore how you add your ribbons and trims. The Organdy ribbon coloured in Petal Pink & cut in three is stunning. The inside is so elegant with the Gold Foil layers and the pop up sentiment is very cool!

  5. Gold really lifts the (inspid, ha ha) Petal Pink ... what an elegant card! Beautiful work with the new papers, and gorgeous dies, Andrea.

  6. Another stunner, Andrea! I love the dotty effect of the die, it's a lovely background for the gorgeous flowers.
