Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Create Your Own Background. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Today I have created the background on my Perfect Pomegranate Everything Wonderful card by stamping. Multiple colors of green, combined with some Balmy Blue for the sky, create the perfect tree setting. The deep red pomegranates are hanging pretty in the tree, resembling the real thing.
I was inspired by my own back yard. Granted, the pomegranates are not quite ripened to the beautiful red color yet, but come late fall, they should be.
This stamp set is from the July-August 2022 Sale-A-Bration brochure. It is a host set that can be earned with a party or personal order over $300. It is on page 17.
To make the Perfect Pomegranate Everything Wonderful card
- Begin with a 5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of Basic White thick cardstock, score and fold at 4 ¼” to form your card base.
- Lay a 3 7/8” x 5 1/8” piece of Basic White cardstock on a piece of scrap paper and stamp your leaves. The large leaves are in Garden Green, the medium leaves in Pear Pizzazz, and the small leaves in Granny Apple Green.
- Once the leaves are stamped, lightly color some of the white space between them with Balmy Blue ink using your Blending Brush.
- Layer and adhere the stamped piece to a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and attach to the card base using Stampin ‘ SEAL.
Time to stamp the pomegranates
- Place your pomegranate stamp on your Stamparatus, ink it up with Real Red ink, and stamp on a piece of Basic White cardstock. Clean your stamp, ink it up with Poppy Parade ink, and stamp again. Repeat for a total of two pomegranates.
- Color the end of the pomegranates with your Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and stamp the small little dots on top using Soft Suede ink.
- Fussy cut your pomegranates. (fussy cut means to cut out with your Paper Snips)
- Adhere the pomegranates to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Versamark ink. Quickly dust the sentiment with gold Embossing Powder, remove the excess, and set in place with your Heat Tool.
- Crop your sentiment with the Sentiment Silhouette dies, and a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock with the label from All That dies, using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.
- Layer and adhere the sentiment to the label and attach them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Tie a double bow with the white Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and single bow with gold Simply Elegant Trim. Attach the white bow to the card using a Glue Dot and layer and attach the gold bow on top with another Glue Dot.
- Attach three gold Flower Trinkets as shown.
