Stamp Review Crew: Painted Petals

SRC-painted-petals-bannerHere in my neck of the woods it’s the perfect time for a Painted Petals blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew!  Spring has sprung and I’m happy to see a few flowers blooming.  Keep reading to see more of them — of the stamps-ink-and-paper variety!

I don’t ever remember being #1 in much of anything, but today I’m #1 in this blog hop.  Still, you may have hopped over from Wendy Weixler’s Wickedly Wonderful Creations blog.  She is such an inspiration to me!

My first card I made for a swap at Leadership in January.  I used the trio layout to play on the motif of three flowers.  I stamped hundreds of these tiny panels — you really can’t see it here, but each blossom is accented with a bit of Dazzling Details in Gold Glitz.  I love that little dash of bling, as you’ll see.

Debra Burgin Garden of Painted PetalsIf spring is here, can summer be far behind?  I’m not rushing it, really, but when I started working with these colors it brought back the feeling of a picnic.  It’s that plaid, don’t you think?  I used my Grid Paper to keep those images fairly straight.  This card is going to someone who surprised me Saturday.  When I flew out the back door into the garage, there on the stoop was a beautiful box.  Inside was the cutest bunny figurine; its vintage feel is perfect with my other decorations.

Debra Burgin Summer petalsI’m a little confused with Victoria magazine; did I miss the blue-and-white issue?  I look forward to seeing how many variations they incorporate into the pages.  If I ever wanted to redo a room, even just a bathroom (and come to think of it, I’ve got just the bathroom that needs it!), it would be in blue and white.  So here is a paper version to start the dream, this time in navy and vanilla, with stamped 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon.

Debra Burgin Amazing in blueOur Easter brunch this year had a few new dishes.  For my own sanity, I post the menu to make sure I keep on track and don’t forget to put anything on the buffet.  Often I also have place cards so that people aren’t awkwardly standing around wondering where they should sit.  However, both the menu and the place cards are cause for ridicule from some people (no one I live with) and so I made just this one card.  You can’t see it here, but there is more Gold Glitz on these blossoms.  Click on the image a few times so you can see what you missed!

    Your lunch menu sounds yummy but I am feasting my eyes on these gorgeous projects! Each one unique and so many fun details. The stamped ribbon is lovely, but my fav is the green plaid. Pink and green together always make me smile!
