Path of Petals

Happy Sunday!

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the Path of Petals Bundle.  The Petals Label Dies are gorgeous as this large one depicts, and I will be show casing it again in a future video next month.

My card base is in Very Vanilla, and the Rococo Rose layer is slightly larger than the norm to accommodate the die.  

Just a little stamping and constructing a flower with the Specialty washi tape from the Pressed Petals suite.

To A Wild Rose – Two Step Stamping

Have you ever looked at a stamp set and it didn't really "sing" to you until you ink it up and were completely blown away by how stunning it looks once you put stamp to paper?

Blimey, oh Riley!  That just happened to me!!!!  The best thing about it is that if you're a beginner and starting out, this "To a Wild Rose" is just sheer genius - it will make you look like a pro from the "get go"!

You don't need a lot of ink pads either.  One of the most fundamental things you learn is a technique called "stamping off".  This means you ink up your stamp and stamp it on to a scratch piece of paper a couple of times before you stamp it on to the card you are making.  Each time you stamp on the scratch piece of paper, you're transferring the ink to make it a shade lighter.  Better still, having a stamp positioning tool like Stampin' Up!'s Stamparatus makes it even EASIER!!!

See for yourself!

Woven Threads meets Pop of Petals

I've been itching to play with this set, but the dies and embossing folders were stuck in German Customs for a long time and I didn't get my hands on them till recently.   The inspiration for this card came from the catalogue - not a straight CASE but it was a starting point!

It's nice to mix old with new - and that's where the Pop of Petals stamp set and punch come in.  I couldn't decided which colour flower I should have so I had one of each!  Enjoy!

Magnolia Lane 3D Embossing Folder

Happy Sunday!

Talk about down to the wire!  It seems such a long time ago.  I was waiting, and waiting, for the Embossing Folders to ship - they were on back order and as luck would have it, it arrived the day before our Team Meeting in June and I was making things for my Display.

As with the Magnolia flower, the image was supersized in a 6" x 6" 3D Embossing folder so I had to make a special sized card for it too.  The card base was 6" x 12" Mossy Meadow to make a card 6" square so that I could show off the embossed images to its full potential.

Mossy Meadow was too dark to be left as a monotone card, and it needed lifting with a Petal Pink mat layer 5-3/4" square.   I stamped some leaves in Mossy Meadow in the opposite corners to peek out and distressed the Mossy Meadow embossed layer. The corners were folded  back using dimensionals to keep the folds open and preserve its shape.

To finish  I used the Magnolia Lane Ribbon combo pack, the open work die cut in Petal Pink and some Magnolia Lane cork embellishments.

Just a reminder that during the month of July you can earn Bonus Day Coupons for every £45 spend before shipping/handling.  This may be just the right time to invest in the whole Magnolia Lane Bundle Suite - as you will easily earn 2 Bonus Day coupons which you can redeem in August.  See post HERE for more details.  

Thanks for visiting - enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
