Spotlighting Modern Petunias with Yana

Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!

You have probably already seen the WPlus9 March 2017 release and I’m excited to share some more inspiration using the Modern Petunias stamp set.

When my hubby and I lived in Ukraine (we recently moved to Phoenix) we would always have a pot of gorgeous petunias bloom on our balcony all the way through summer. Here’s a photo I found from Summer 2016:

So as soon as I spotted the Modern Petunias stamp set I felt immediately inspired to create! Petunias come in a variety of colors and even patterns - white, pink, purple, yellow, even black. If you have trouble visualizing them - search for petunias on Pinterest, I always find this to be very helpful.

To create this card I first stamped flowers and leaves using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and cut the images out using the companion dies. I went with Intense black as it’s an alcohol marker friendly ink and I wanted to do coloring using Copics.

I used just a handful of colors - RV14, RV13 and RV10 to color the flowers and YG67, YG17 and YG03 for the leaves.

After heat embossing the “Thanking Of You” sentiment in gold embossing powder onto Oatmeal cardstock, I also heat embossed additional flowers and leaves onto the background to add some interest to my card and "spotlight" the colored images.

I foam mounted flowers and a few leaves and used glue to adhere the rest. I also heat embossed the edge of my main panel to give it a nice gold finish and later foam mounted it onto an A2 top folding card.

Lastly, I embellished my card using clear droplets in small and medium sizes. Have fun stamping!

  2. Gorgeous Yana! Beautiful picture, I don't think I've ever seen that pattern, I've seen that color but not that pretty pattern. Loving all the new flower stamp sets, some more things to add to my ever growing wish list, lol. Even with just a few markers and embossing your projects are always amazing. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
