Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals For You Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a great week and have great plans for the weekend. Today, I have another card showcasing some pretty Designer Series Paper to celebrate the final days of the Stampin’ Up! Buy 3 Get 1 Free paper sale. I made a card using the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is a lightweight paper that has photographic images of pressed flowers – another pretty set! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the blue flower paper from the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper with the bouquet centered on my panel. I matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock using liquid glue and then to a Night of Navy card base. I cut a strip of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped lace to the bottom and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large flower from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Blueberry Bushel ink. I stamped the center of the flower on Very Vanilla cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped the for you label on Very Vanilla cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut out all of these items using the coordinating dies from the Bouquet Bunch dies. I also cut out two leaf sprigs from the Bouquet Bunch dies on Garden Green card stock.

I tied a piece of Linen thread around the label and glued the pieces of the bouquet together. Then I attached them to the card front with dimensionals. I tied a loose bow with more linen thread and attached it using a mini glue dot.

I decorated the inside of the card by adhering a strip of the Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Designer Series paper to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel using liquid glue. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series paper has 24 lightweight sheets in the pack and is versatile as well as beautiful. Since it has more sheets, it’s more expensive than a standard package of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, but you can still choose it as your free set after purchasing three other packs! Who else lets you do that?

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Thank You Card

Good Morning! For today, I made a feminine thank you card using the beautiful flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp set. I paired it with the linen paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper for a natural and rustic look. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I wanted to use both So Saffron and Calypso Coral on the large double roses, so I mounted the stamp on my Stamparatus. I first inked it with So Saffron ink and stamped it on Very Vanilla. Then I used sponge daubers to add Calypso Coral ink to the stamp and stamped again in the same place. I did this a couple of times until I got the depth of color I wanted in the places I wanted. The Stamparatus made this quite easy.

I then stamped the large hydrangea in Seaside Spray and the small rose in Calypso Coral. I stamped the rose centers in Calypso Coral after stamping off once. I lightly sponged all the flowers in the same inks. I then cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace to the bottom.

I stamped the thank you sentiment from the Free as a Bird stamp set in Seaside Spray on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut it out with the small stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes dies. I cut a backing from a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock with the small scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals dies. I adhered a piece of Braided Linen Trim across the bottom and attached the labels and a bow. I finished it off with three small Seaside Spray Faceted Dots.

I stamped the hydrangea stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship stamp set on a strip of Very Vanilla to cover it. I then ran it through the Scripty Embossing Folder and sponged it with Seaside Spray to highlight the embossing. I adhered it to a panel of Pressed Petals DSP and then to a Night of Navy card base with liquid glue. I attached the floral panel with Dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the large double rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship stamp set in So Saffron ink on Very Vanilla cardstock after stamping off. I stamped the flower centers in Calypso Coral after stamping off twice. I lightly sponged the flower in So Saffron to fill it in and adhered it to a panel of Pressed Petals DSP and then to the inside of the card.

I hope you like today’s card. The flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship stamp set remind me of Victorian cabbage roses in vintage fabrics and porcelain. Maybe it’s a little fussy for today’s tastes – what do you think? Thanks for visiting!
