Pretty Pressed Petals Paper

Have you seen the new Pressed Petals Designer Paper? It’s beautiful! I used some of the paper to create a very quick birthday card.

Don’t you love it?

 

Design Notes for Pressed Petals Card:

This card is possibly one of the easiest cards I have ever made. Really! I started out by using some of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment and punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. Finally, I popped  it up on some Dimensionals and done!

But really, you can’t miss with this beautiful paper. Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other. One design has distinct designs to cut out and use on card fronts. And, bonus, the package has 24 sheets!

Woven Heirlooms for Sympathy

The theme for Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights is encouragement. When does someone need encouragement more that at the time of the passing of a loved one? I think the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set is absolutely perfect for this type of card.

Design Notes for Woven Heirlooms Card:

You know how much I love heat embossing. I thought the white embossing was in keeping with the colors in the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. And don’t you love that piece cut with the Stitched Labels Framelits?

I cut out two of them so that I could use one on the inside of the card.

I like using butterflies on any card but especially a sympathy card. They seem so hopeful. For this, I stamped the butterflies (from Butterfly Gala stamp set) on vellum. Next, I punched out both butterflies from card stock and then mounted the vellum ones on the cardstock.

Bee Thankful for Sweet Customers

Recently one of my customers ordered the Bee Thankful stamp set. So cute. I don’t own that set and had no samples to show her. Later, I send her a few pictures I found on line, using the Bee Thankful stamp set. She was grateful and the other day I received this terrific card in the mail!

Well Said Anniversary Wishes

My neighbors are celebrating their 25th anniversary today. I made a card, of course, but never thought to use silver, DUH. But I think the Well Said stamp set and Well Written Dies still get the message across!

Well Said stamp set, Well Written Dies, Anniversary,Mosaic Mood specialty Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

 

Not exactly monochromatic, but pretty close! I did add a Metallic Pearl as a nod to their silver anniversary.

 

 

Design Notes for Well Said Anniversary Card:

There are so many beautiful designer papers in the new annual catalog. Because of that, it might be easy to over look the really beautiful, Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Paper. Here’s a peek.

Many of the pages have shiny accents. The paper that I used on this card shows one of those papers. This card is pretty straightforward. I cut the “happy” and the little bird with dies from the Well Written Die set and used some Garden Green card stock. Finally, I added a little ribbon on the bottom to add some interest. I love an easy, simple card that doesn’t look easy and simple!

Perennial Essence Suite is Sweet!

As soon as I saw the Perennial Essence suite of products I knew it would be one of my favorites. The Perennial Essence Paper is truly dreamy, the stamps are beautiful. Then there is a punch, ribbon and vellum. You can’t ask for more! Here’s a birthday card made with some of the suite products.

Design Notes for Perennial Essence Suite Card:

I think the card has an elegant look. The Perennial Essence Designer Paper is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. Here’s a close up of the paper.

Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Doesn’t it remind you of a Monet painting?

One of the things I like best about the stamp set is that there are two different kinds of flowers in the same set. I used the softer flower stamped off in the background. The other flower is made from using the three petal punch stamp on vellum. I used the Perennial Flower Punch to punch out the petal. When you are stamping on vellum, use care. It takes a while for the ink to dry. You can move this along (if you are impatient like myself) by hitting it with the Heat Tool for a few seconds.

Finally, I also used the softer flower on the envelope. Just the right touch, I think.

Purchase List for Perennial Essence Suite Card:

It might be a bit confusing but the stamp set and Bundle (get 10% off) are called Floral Essence. The items as a collection, with the Designer Paper, vellum, ribbons, etc, are know as Perennial Essence.

This and That:

If you are reading this post early enough, you should be able to get some Trimmer Blades. Recall that Stampin’ Up! removed the Trimmer from the catalog because of production issues. Many of us love our trimmer and need blades to hold us until a new trimmer is offered. (We hope that will be soon!) If you are looking for blades, today is the day. They will be available at 10AM (Mountain time, Noon Eastern Daylight time). There is a limit of 3 packages that can be ordered. Don’t wait!!!! The item number is 126995.
