GSF October Blog Hop Card Sets

Welcome to the October GSF (aka Global Stamping Friends) Blog Hop and this month we are sharing our ideas for card sets. I love creating card sets as they make great gifts for family and friends plus they are wonderful to have on hand in case you need a card at the last minute. You may have just visited Rachel's blog or perhaps you are starting with me. I hope that you will enjoy your journey and be inspired by our projects. 

Today I chose to use the Petal Palette stamp set to create my card set along with the Very Vanilla notecards and envelopes pack. Both of these products are on sale until October 7th as part of the World Card Making Day Sale. I wanted to share how you can create simply beautiful cards with just a few simple supplies.

The roses image and sentiment have been stamped onto a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and also on the front of the envelope with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Each card was colored using a different color palette using Stampin' Blends Markers. The purple roses on this first card were colored using the Light and Dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Markers and the leaves were colored using the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers.

This second card was colored using Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Markers for the roses and once again I used the Old Olive markers for the leaves. I used a different sentiment from the stamp set for this card to provide a variety for my card set.

My third card has been colored using the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers along with the Old Olive for the leaves. I love how pretty the yellow roses look and thought it would make a wonderful Thank You card.

My final card of this set was colored using the Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blend Markers. This combination with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers created a wonderful Fall feel to this card design. To finish off each card, I colored Basic Pearls with the Light Old Olive Stampin' Blend and placed them onto the card front. The layer of Very Vanilla cardstock was attached to the notecard using Stampin' Dimensionals, which are also on sale for WCMD. 

I just love the Petal Palette stamp set and it's versatility. The images have a wonderful organic feel to them and the sentiments are suitable for variety of occasions. You could easily create a card set using the images and sentiments from this set to suit a variety of occasions. The Very Vanilla Notecards & Envelopes are an economical way to create cards without all the stress and fuss. Together, these products are a great way to create wonderful projects.
