Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence with Positive Thoughts Hugs Card

Good Morning! Today’s card mixes the florals from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set with the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Positive Thoughts stamp set showing how easily you can mix elements from the Annual Catalog with the Mini Catalog. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Cut a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock and run it through the Scripty embossing folder. Adhere it to a panel of Perennial Essence designer series paper and then to a Pretty Peacock card base. Punch two leaf clusters from Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Leaf punch and adhere them to the card. Fold a length of linen ribbon and adhere it to the card front with glue dots. Trim the ends of the ribbon.

Stamp two of the 3-petal stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set with Versamark Ink on So Saffron Vellum. Sprinkle it with white embossing powder and heat set until it becomes shiny. Punch them out with the Perennial Flower punch. Punch two additional petal clusters from the So Saffron vellum. Adhere the petal clusters together with glue dots, arranging them so that the two embossed ones are on top and the petal tips are offset. Top with a Perennial Essence floral center

Adhere the flower to the card with dimensionals. Stamp the Hugs sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of Sahara Sand card stock. Cut it out with the die from the Ornate Frames dies. Adhere the label to the card with glue dots. Finish with three Woven Threads Sequins.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a Whisper White panel. Adhere a strip of the Perennial Essence designer series paper to the bottom and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

Now I have to make a confession – my card is CASE’d (copy and selectively edit) from a similar card in the Annual Catalog. I used a different embossing folder and ribbon, and I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts stamp set for the sentiments, so it’s a little different. But it shows how you can use the pretty projects in the catalogs for inspiration – and there are lots of them!
