Introducing Delightful Dahlia and Distressed Stripes

Hello, friends!  Welcome back for Day 5 of this fabulous March release!  I told you this was going to be a fun month, and I hope I didn't disappoint!  All of this new product just leaves me overflowing with creative juices!

Today I have the pleasure of introducing TWO more stamp sets to you.  A fun floral set by Dawn McVey and a background set from little ol' me!

Dawn's headshot
Delightful Dahlia is the latest compilation by Dawn McVey.  It's graceful & elegant line drawings are the perfect thing for any flower lover.  The images are detailed enough that they can be used as is or colored, the choice is yours!

The details.

  • Delightful Dahlia will be available for purchase on March 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Delightful Dahlia contains a total of 15 stamps (3 flower images, 2 leaves and 10 sentiments.)
  • There is a collection of four dies that coordinate with this set that will retail for $15.  It includes dies for the two largest flowers along with the two leaves.

The second set, a background set, that I mentioned earlier is entitled Distressed Stripes.  I designed these 5" long stripes to be used in a variety ways, from borders to background building.  You can make your own plaids & ginghams to your heart's content!  The slightly distressed finish gives these a warm character that brings style to any project!

The details.

  • Distressed Stripes will be available for purchase on March 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Distressed Stripes contains a total of 7 stripe stamps (All 5" long and ranging from 1/8" to 3/8" wide.)

Now onto the projects!

Red Dahlia card
This first project showcases classic Copic coloring with the large dahlia bloom.

Colored dahlia
Before I even started, I die-cut the coordinating die from Stamper's Select White cardstock.  I was then able to easily stamp the dahlia with Noir Palette ink.  I chose to go with the Pure Poppy Copic Trio.  I love the richness and vibrancy that was created with this combination for this image..

Stamped red border
I used an image from the new Distressed Stripes set to create a border for my project.  I trimmed the stripe into a narrow strip and stitched it into place with my sewing machine.  I think the end result looks a bit like ribbon.

Adhered red dahlia
 The finished flower was adhered in place using foam dimensionals to give it a bit more dimension.

Generosity sentiment
The sentiment I chose to use was this one from Signature Greetings.  I stamped it in black ink to echo the lines from the flower.  Such a fun little project!  I can image it done in lots of different colors!

Vellum dahlia card

Next, I had a little fun with vellum while showcasing the backgrounds that can be created when pairing both the small and the large dahlias from this set.

Stamping vellum
I cut a piece of our vellum cardstock to size and stamped it with the small and large dahlias using Hawaiian Shores ink.

Adhering vellum
I allowed the ink to dry for a few minutes and applied tape runner adhesive to the stamped side of the vellum.  Since I am adhering the vellum to a white cardbase, I don't need to worry about the adhesive showing through.

Vellum button accent

I stacked a two Hawaiian Shores buttons on top of one another to create an accent for the sentiment strip.  They are just adhered together with glue dots.  (FYI, I have now updated the Hawaiian Shores introduction post with button photos and comparisons)  I also ran strips of 1/8" Scor-tape along the top and the bottom of the strip to adhere Prisma Glitter.  I'm so happy with the simplicity of this project and look forward to making more in the future.

Plaid dahlia card laying down
Next is a little project that's out of my comfort zone, but I had fun creating it and that's all that matters! It never hurts to just PLAY!

Stripes step onee
I wanted to create some plaid paper using the new Distressed Stripes set, so I did the first round of the stamped stripes on Vintage Cream cardstock, alternating Orange Zest & Summer Sunrise.


I then reversed direction and repeated.

Plaid Dahlia Card
I cut the finished plaid paper into two panel, antiqued them with the Tea Dye Duo, following some stitching around their perimeters with my sewing machine.

Plaid dahlia closeup
 For the dahlia, I die-cut Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped the flower in Dark Chocolate ink.  I then stamped the polka dots with Summer Sunrise ink.  I went in with a few of my  Copic markers and added some shading to the base of each dahlia petal.  Loops of Dark Chocolate Grosgrain ribbon are underneath the flower to add balance to the project.  The leaves are hand cut and stamped with Text Style II using Dark Chocolate ink.  Quite a dramatic project, isn't it?

Thank you series 1

Here is a series of simple cards I created.  Each of these cards took no more than five minutes to create, so if you are in the business of mass-producing, these are just the ticket!

Single dahlia thank you
Just a few simple supplies and steps is all it takes.

Embossed dahlia

Stamp the flower in Versamark ink, followed by an application of Filigree Embossing powder.  Heat to set.

Sponging dahlia
 I then dabbed the corner of a paper towel in my Fresh Snow ink pad and rubbed it in a circular motion in the center of the flower.  It adds definition, dimension and shading to a project without having to do any actual coloring.

Thank you series 2
(click the above image for a larger view)  

The colors I worked with for my collection are (left to right)… Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Ocean TIdes and Melon Berry.  It's like a feast for the eyes!  :)     

Mother Card
(click the above image for a larger view) 

Lastly, this is a dainty little Mother's Day card I designed using the Delightful Dahlia set.

Mother frame closeup
I combined it with last year's "Mother" set, perfect for the upcoming holiday.

Striped ribbon
I created my own striped ribbon and utilized our new Picnic Plaid Impression Plate, which turned out to be the perfect subject matter for a video!  A little Impression Plate 101 among a few other tips and tricks!  I hope you'll enjoy!

    How easy life will be with coordinating stamps and dies! You could have flowers cut and stamped ahead of time and ready to be used in a pinch. Love that! And the distressed stripes are so right up my alley. A distressed series of stamps would be awesome too. Letters, flowers, dots, patterns… I could go on and on.
    Great job PTI!

  • 405

    Beautiful!! I love both sets, and I can see that the distressed stripes will be a perfect ‘go to’ background set! I LOVE the second card you did — the color scheme seems to be big right now — I got both of my girls bathing suits that use these colors –I guess it’s true, what goes around (70’s) comes around again! lol. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity!!

    Michelle Balletti says:

    I’m really not a flower stamp kind of gal, but the dahlia set is really pretty. I loved it on the vellum (or back of, I should say)….and the background basics….one of a kind backgrounds for one of a kind cards…LOVE IT

    Monica L says:

    I’m not that great with the Copics–still trying though. So I love seeing the gorgeous flowers either stamped on pattern paper or creating your own, with only a little shading required. Or better yet, using your fabulous colored inks and let them be the stars. Just fabulous!!

    I watched you video and saw a vanilla mat??? Is that just a piece of paper or is that a thinner version of the tan mat that creates a more defined impression? Can wait to find out!

  • 499
    Susan Berkhout says:

    Dawn’s Dahlias are stunning. I think the coloring by Nichole made hers look three dimensional – I hope to replicate. Each offering makes choosing all the more difficult as I like everything this month-but that’s always true! Looking forward to the dahlia dies too – love the ones I have so far.

  • 500
    TishSch says:

    My mind reels when I think of the patterned paper I can create on my own with the new Distressed Stripes set. So cool! Dawn’s samples today are amazing and have totally sold me on this stamp set as well as the Delightful Dahlia set. I am so thankful that you created dies for this flower set as I think I would go a bit cuckoo trying to cut themm out. And thank you for showing samples that don’t require colouring. I do not own many Copic markers so appreciate ideas that use other supplies instead.
