2016 Anniversary Set: Painted Petals

Good morning! It's Day 10 of the Papertrey Ink 9th anniversary countdown and today the team is introducing you to this year's anniversary set.

Painted Petals Cards

I think the thing I love most about this year's anniversary set, Painted Petals, is how versatile it is. This set lends itself well to all sorts of styles. It can be bright and bold on one project, earthy and rustic on the next, and then shabby and delicate on yet another card. This is one must-have floral, for sure! Let's get on to some projects!

Happiness In Joy Card

I began this first card by stamping the flower onto a piece of Rustic White cardstock using Harvest Gold and Bright Buttercup inks. I added the flower center with Canyon Clay, the individual seeds with Terra Cotta Tile, and the stem with Simply Chartreuse. The tiny leaf details were then added with Ripe Avocado. There are so many opportunities to layer color and add interest with this set.

Next, I stamped the sentiment with Terra Cotta Tile and added a strip of striped Terra Cotta Tile patterned paper to the bottom edge of the panel. I wrapped that piece with Rustic Jute Button Twine and mounted it to a Classic Kraft card base that I'd textured with the Rustic Burlap Impression Plate. Clean and simple goes rustic.

Next up is a much brighter project using this set.

Note Of Thanks Card

I began by sponging a bit of Aqua Mist along the top edge of a white card front. Then I started stamping an assortment of flowers along the bottom edge with a rainbow of color. I left some open spaces to allow for additional flowers that I added with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with Smokey Shadow, layering part of the text onto the Canyon Clay flower.

Note Of Thanks Close Up

I really had so much fun with these flowers. I played around with color combinations on a piece of scrap paper and discovered some combos that I'd never really considered before. The Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, and Scarlet Jewel might be my unexpected favorite.

Well, that's all for me today. Thank you so much for visiting me today. Make sure to check in with NicholeAmy, Ashley, Betsy, Danielle, DawnHeather, Kay, Laurie, and Melissa for more of this year's anniversary set. Have a great day and I'll see you back here tomorrow for this month's wrap-up. Have a great day!
