Pressed Petals Paper - I'm Going To Miss You!


I have a last minute post!  I did these projects on a Facebook Live a couple of weeks ago and to my surprise, the video disappeared.  Ugh, technology... or is it the user?  Ha! Ha! 

Any way, I wanted to photograph and get these posted so you can see each card project has a main focal piece from one (yes, just one) sheet of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I was able to make 9 cards from that one sheet.   The Specialty DSP is retiring tonight at midnight if you still wanted to get your hands on this beautiful paper, you can Shop Now

A few other items that I used is the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape (also retiring), the Timeless Label Punch, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, and Merry Merlot card stock, and Dimensionals.   (the Leaf Punch is already gone but you could substitute with the Sprig Punch).  The Glitter Enamel Dots are also retiring and still available.  I used on some flower centers. 

  • All card bases are standard 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
  • Cut one sheet of DSP from Pressed Petals DSP pack and follow those measurements (see below)
  • Cut layers 1/4" larger for smaller pieces.  For example, if cut DSP is 4 x 4, cut mat 4-1/4 x 4-1/4
  • For DSP pieces that are almost a full frontal piece, if you to mat with card stock, cut CS to 5-3/8" x 4-1/8"
  • Embellish how you would like

Below is a great picture of the One Sheet of paper I used from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP pack.  Just cut the long 12" strip of pink and white daisies off first.  Then you can cut up each of the seven remaining pieces to use on your card fronts.  That 12" strip... I made two cards with it!

Oh....by the way, Pressed Petals is available as in below picture in an entire PRODUCT SUITE (retires tonight!).

I hope you enjoy!

Swing Fold Card with Poppies

So I waited a few weeks to post this card project on my blog.  My Video has been out for a few weeks now on My YouTube channel.  I would completely appreciate your following so be sure to subscribe. 

It seemed like all my current projects have been with the Peaceful Poppies Suite so I have been trying to go to some other great things in my stash.  Well, let me tell you... I keep reaching for them!  Must mean I really like the suite, and well, I do.  Everything coordinates just so, you can make some quick and easy projects or really doc them up into intricate pieces of art. 

For this project I show you how to make a SWING FOLD CARD.  


Don't forget an inside!

More Black Ice Projects

Sometimes when I do a special technique or style of card, I just need to keep going with it!  It's like finding that perfect pair of pants and buying them in every color...LOL!  

Several weeks ago I shared my Black Ice Technique card, which turned into several more, so I have to share them with you.   Be sure to click on the bold words in the previous sentence to see my previous post too.

My first projects is using the Magnolia Lane Suite and Champagne Foil Sheets.  I also used the Everyday Label Punch for background interest.
