Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

PicsArt_08-19-04.50.05

I wanted to show you another card using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  If you missed my last post showing this paper, check it our HERE as I have added a video!

Both the background and music piece are from this Designer Series paper.  Pressed Petals is so pretty, you can dress it up or leave it plain and add a simple sentiment.  I chose to dress it up. Doesn't this make for a great fall birthday?  Of course, it could be for just about any occasion; retirement, thinking of you, get well, and more. 

The background piece is cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 as I just wanted a slim boarder showing the Night of Navy card base.  Standard card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2.

The music sheet piece is cut 4-1/8 x 2.  

The picture does not do justice for the Gold Foil pieces.  The berry sprigs (in Gold Foil) and leaves (in Mossy Meadow) are from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  And then I layered the Stitched Nested Label die in Gold Foil as well.  Helps make it stand out a little, don't you think?

My favorite accent used to dress up the card is the piece of Night of Navy ran through one of the dies from the Detailed Lace Dies.  I just adore that die, but all three are pretty great with lots of detail.

A Cool New Product... Check it Out!

Happy Friday everyone.  Hope you all had a great week.  Mine was the same hum-drum week, working my day job, so Fridays are always the highlight of my week. Is that the same for you?

Today I wanted to share a card featuring the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and.... The NEW Pressed Petals Washi Tape.  Here is the card (you can click on it to bring up larger):

I love this card!  The colors and flowers... OH!  Speaking of flowers.  The Flower, with the metal Designer Elements piece, is made with the NEW PRESSED PETALS WASHI TAPE!  Yes, washi tape.  Each petal is individual and you peal them off the roll and stick them onto your project.  It is so cool.  

The Pressed Petals tape comes in a 2 pack.  The other roll is the ruler looking strip on the right side of the card.  I cut my card base 7-1/2 x 5-1/2 still scoring at 4-1/4 inches.  When you fold on the score line, you see one inch of your inside so I added the piece of washi tape to coordinate. 

For the front of the card, the Pressed Petals designer series paper is cut 5-1/4 x 3.  This also means, you can make several cards.  By cutting at 3 inches, you will get 8 pieces per sheet of designer paper!

Here is an angle picture so you can see the opening a little better:

I completed the card with the Happy Birthday sentiment from a stamp set called 'Here's a Card', stamped in Merry Merlot ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  

Below is the list of products I used on this card.  Let me know if you have any questions and have a great weekend!

It's your time to shine... with Daisies

Hey!  Did you know that there is a New Daisy Punch?

Stampin' Up! is calling it the Medium Daisy and it is the perfect match or compliment to the larger Daisy Punch we carried over from the last catalog.  Now you can layer the two punches together like I did on my 'It's your time to shine' card.  The words are from the stamp set "Daisy Lane".  The stamp set coordinates with both punches and you can purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle at a 10% discount! 

Oh, and this is my Team Swap card... I will be sharing the others shortly.

I used Petal Pink card stock for the base, a layer of Whisper White and the top background paper is the gorgeous Perennial Essence Design Series Paper! 

Paper Saving Tip:  stamp and punch your daisies from the Whisper White layer!!!

Stamp two large daisies and two smaller daisies in Petal Pink ink.  Attach each layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

My flower center is the metal embellishment called Designer Element found on page 178 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  You get one sheet of these in 3 finishes!  I used the Antique Copper finish.  These are my new favorite embellishment in the Annual catalog. 

Leaf Punch was used with Old Olive card stock.

Sprig Punch was used with Vellum card stock.

Birds and Magnolias

Can you believe summer is winding down and kids are heading back to school already?  I went to Target this week and school supplies, backpacks, sales, and general buzz was all over the store.  My niece and nephew are heading back real soon and I don't know who is more relieved?  My brother and sister-in-law, the kids to be able to see their friends or Mammy (SIL's mom); who watches them along with my two other nieces that are are 3 and 20 months.  Mammy has her hands full!

Here is a lovely card using the Free As A Bird Bundle and Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper.  Combining products from different suites gives extra ideas.  So the Magnolia Lane paper can be used with more than the magnolia set.  Just coordinate the colors!

Here's my video for this card...

 

I hardly ever use our standard Whisper White card stock as a card base.  So when I do, I like to double layer the inside of the card to add some weight to it.  Do you do the same?  What do you do on the insides of your cards?

Black-n-White

I love black and white cards.  And this one is so simple and elegant.  If you have not seen the Detailed Bands Dies yet, check them out by clicking on the link or look below in the list of products I used to make this card.  The Detailed Bands Dies is one of my most favorite die sets in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Images and words (minus the Happy Birthday) are from a lovely set called Very Versailles. This set is right up my alley... Now the branches of leaves may look like they are not inked well, but they are.  The image is one of Stampin' Up! DistINKtive stamps; stamps made a special way to give a realistic look.  I can't wait to try with other ink colors. 

The Happy Birthday is from the stamp set called Here's a Card.  If you are looking for a "word" stamp set, this may the one you should order

I have to laugh at myself with the inside of the card.  Can you see why? 

As I always say in my classes.... well, it IS handmade!

 

I do want to give credit as I CASED (copy and share everything) this project from a card swap I participated in.  Joanna Jones, fellow demonstrator from Oklahoma, made the below card. My sample, I changed the sentiment and added rhinestones and an inside.  Her card is so pretty so I had to share.
