Petite Petals (retiring) card

I made this card for my fiance’s aunt in California to thank her for everything she did when we visited her earlier this year. We had a great time wine tasting and being spoiled!

I adore the Petite Petals stamp set and the matching punch which unfortunately are retiring soon or until stock runs out. I combined it with Timeless Textures and All Things Thanks stamp sets. I like how the sentiment springs out of the flowers. I also added Mint Macaroon, Blushing bride Glimmer paper and Blushing Bride Twine which all will be discontinued from 31st of May!

This card looks great and it’s very easy to make as well if you have recently started stamping this is a great card to make. i just like how the sentiment pops out of the flowers. Here’s the list of products I used:

The card is straight forward stamping. You can use the stampmajig to get everything lined up more precise, but I didn’t use it for this card.
1) I stamped the sentiment first, so it’s right where I wanted it 2) Stamp leafy texture stamp with mint macaroon, 3) Glued the front to the piece of blushing bride 4) Tied on twine 5) I glued it all on the front of the card base.
6) The flowers I stamped on scrap paper 7) Punched them out, if you got no punch then use scissors! 8) Folded the flower petals with a bone folder to give it a bit of shape 9) Attached them with glue dots 10) Added rhinestones.

April Colour Challenge

Colour challenge

Every month my team leader gives us a challenge which we can participate in. We then make a card or a project and post it to inspire each other. April’s challenge was a colour challenge with the above colours. other requirements were using current stampin up products. We were allowed to add Whisper White, Black, gold, silver and copper. I don’t have Tangerine Tango, so I used a shade from the Calypso Coral ombre ink pad instead.

I came up with this cardIMG_5685

I think this is a fun and vibrant card. I usually like working with subtle colours, so I felt like I had to think outside of the “box”.

I used following stuff to make this card:

I don’t think I could have made this card without the stampamajig! This is how I made the card:
1) I stamped the turquoise flowers first on the piece of Whisper White for the front of the card, by using the stampamajig I was able to line the petals up perfectly. I then stamped the orange flowers by using the middle colour from the Calypso Coral ombre ink pad using the stampamajig again. last I stamped three flowers with Daffodil Delight.
2) Glue the front on to the Tempting Turquoise cardstock, and then glue it on to the front of the card.
3) Cut out two leaves with die from Stylish Stems on scrap Whisper White.
4) I dip the leaves on the versamark ink pad and then dip in copper embossing powder, tap of excess powder straight in the little jar.
5) Use the emboss buddy to run over the piece of scrap Whisper White for sentiment. Stamp the sentiment from Beautiful You stamp set with versamark. Put a piece of notepad paper underneath and pour some copper powder over the stamped sentiment. Gently tap of excess powder on to piece of notepad paper and use the notepad paper to pour powder back into the little jar.
6) Use heating tool to melt embossing powder. Be careful can be a bit warm for the fingers and don’t hold the heating tool to close you, some of the powder risks getting blown off. I heated the cardstock with sentiment from bottom then I avoided blowing off powder.
7) After cooling down I cut out sentiment with an oval stitched die.
8) I glued leaved on to sentiment
9) Use dimensionals to stick sentiment on to the front of card.
10) Voila! Done

I would say this is for advanced beginners. It can be fiddly, but when you get the hang of the embossing and stampamajig it’s much easier! If you don’t have a stampamajig, and like me you can’t stamp anything in a straight line, then you can just stamp the flowers on scrap paper, cut them out and glue them on the front!

Don’t miss out on Pinterest!

After hours of watching Brandy’s cards videos I got hungry for more inspiration and my aunt recommended me using Pinterest. And oh my, there is a lot of pretty cards to be inspired by!
Petite petals punch used to punch out the flowers.
Scissors will do the job just perfectly as well!
This card was for my cousin’s birthday. She is danish therefore there is a danish happy birthday sentiment stamped.
This card was inspired by this pin, so very similar. I just loved the flower wreath and colours matching. I used a purple plum coloured ribbon to break the blue. The flowers are stamped with marina mist ink pad and the flowers are from the Petite Petal stamping set, both from Stampin’ up! I used whisper white and marina mist cardstock, also from Stampin’ up! I also, which might be difficult to see, embossed the middle of the wreath with a heart embossing folder.
I find it neat if you make a matching envelope to your card. It is very easy and finishes off the project nicely. I love this card and my cousin was very happy to receive it too 🙂
