Hand Penned is another new suite that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. This suite include the stamp set called Hand-Penned Petals, the coordinating dies called Penned Flowers Dies, Hand Penned Designer Series Paper and Genial Gems. The stamp set is a two step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make one image. One of the reasons I love this stamp set is because the sentiments looks like they were hand written and images drawn by hand too.
I used my Stamparatus to make this card because it made it easier to line everything up. I first stamped the flower image on two 3.5″ x 5″ pieces of Basic White card stock in Memento Black Ink. I stamped the first one and then left the stamp in the same position and stamped it again on the second piece. Then I colored the entire image on one using Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Polished Pink Stampin Blends. These are four of the new InColors and I love that these colors have card stock, Ink, Markers and Stampin’ Up!® Blends in all the colors.
After coloring one image I took a die from the set called Scalloped Contours and cut it out using my Cut and Emboss Machine. I lined it up perfectly with the first uncolored image using Dimensionals. Then I stamped the sentiment using Soft Succulent ink. I always forget to use embellishments on my cards so I added three of the Genial Gems. These gems are fun because they sparkle with glitter.
