Happy Saturday! It’s so hot here in North Carolina that I decided it was time to play (finally) with my FSJ PanPastels and create this gorgeous Thank you card. I’ve also been wanting to stamp with the Peach Blossom stamp set that I just got. This week on the FSJ Facebook page, the video Try day Friday was all about Panpastels. I only have a few of the colors but will be ordering the Rich Sorbet palate soon because now I’m hooked. I don’t know why I’ve been so scared of them but they are absolutely delicious to work with.
The back ground on this card was created by taking whip cream cardstock piece sized 3.5″ x 4.75″ and stamping the blossom with FSJ Clear Pigment Ink. Using the wedge from the Journey Soft Tools pick up color from the Raspberry Berry panpastel and lightly add color in a circular motion right over top of the pigment ink onto the background. The sticky ink will pick up more of the color to create this GORGEOUS, soft design.
Using clear pigment ink, stamp the blossom onto a scrap piece of whip cream cardstock and the Thank You Sentiment from Peony Blooms stamp set onto a strip of whip cream cardstock sized 5/8″ x 5.25″. Add Rose Gold Embossing powder and heat using a heat tool for a beautiful shiny flower and sentiment.
Other cardstock measurements are as follows: card base in Raspberry Berry CS 8.5″x5.5″ scored and folded in half with a top fold. Pattern Paper from the Good Life prints cut to 5.25″x 4″. You also need a Raspberry Berry CS strip cut 1″ x 5.25″ to layer under your sentiment strip. All layers are adhered using white liner tape except the bloom is popped up on foam tape.
I hope you enjoy this card and hope you will give the Panpastels a try! If you don’t have them yet the palate sets (not individual pans) are on sale for 20% for the whole month of August!! There is a ton of other mixed media products on sale also so you really need to check it out. You can visit my online store HERE
