Crafty Challenge - Hand-Penned Petals

It's time for another Crafty Challenge and for this blog hop we were challenged to create a card using a sketch.  I always find it fun to play along with sketch challenges.  It's amazing to see what everyone creates.  Here is the sketch we were given.

I decided to use the Hand-Penned Product Suite for my card.  I was part of a Stamp Camp last weekend that featured this suite.  You'd think I would have had enough of it, but I love it so much!  Every card and project I see with this suite is amazing.  If you don't have this suite, yet, it is really one you need to consider!

Here's my card.


  1. Cut Pale Papaya cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold in half to form card base
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.
  3. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper 2" x 2"
  4. Cut 3 pieces of Garden Green cardstock 2 1/8" x 2 1/8"
  5. Adhere DSP pieces to Garden Green pieces using Stampin' Seal
  6. Adhere to embossed piece - top 2 are adhered with Stampin' Seal and bottom one is adhere with Dimensionals.
  7. Wrap White twine around bottom 3 times and adhere on the back using Stampin' Seal.
  8. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock and cut out using your Paper Snips
  9. Adhere to bottom left of piece.
  10. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  11. Cut out flowers using Dies from Pale Papaya cardstock
  12. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.  Layer the flowers using smaller pieces with Mini Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere Genial Gems on flowers

Now it's time to check out all of the other amazing projects from the blog hop:
