Thanks Card with Pansy Petal Designer Paper

Today I’m working with the Pansy Petals Designer Paper to show you the more floral designs in the pack. To show off this beautiful paper I’ve made some simple Thank You cards using the “Thanks” sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set.

I’ve matted each piece of designer paper onto matching in colour cardstock and then added a strip of the same coloured Open-Weave Ribbon about an inch from the bottom of each card.

The sentiments are stamped onto labels cut from the Potted Succulents Dies and embellished with some of the new In-colour Jewels.

I love all of these designs as they feature my favourite thing flowers but my very favourite has to be the design on the black background. This reminds me of the scene in Alice in Wonderland where Alice is walking through the woods about to meet the Cheshire Cat and film always makes me smile.

Pacific Point Pansy Card

I’m back with another card showcasing the Pansy Petal Suite today, this time I’ve used the Pansy Patch stamps and dies to create my card.

I’ve gone with Pacific Point as my main colour which is not a colour I reach for much but I love how this card has turned out. Along with Pacific Point I’ve used Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and a touch of So Saffron for the flower centres.

The only other thing I’ve added to his card is some of the Subtles Designer Paper to create my background. A simple card but think it shows how lovely these stamps are. I’m looking forward to having a play later with different colour combinations while I watch the football.

Blackberry Bliss Pansy Petals Card

This week I’m focusing on the Pansy Petal Suite, my favourite suite from the new catalogue as I love the colours and Pansies are one of my favourite flowers.

This suite features a stamp and die set, matching designer paper and cute little Bumblebee Trinkets similar to the ones in the Dandy Garden Suite. One of my favourite features of this suite is the options with the die set. You can cut from the matching designer paper, cut from stamped images and also simply use the dies to build your own flowers from cardstock.

Today I’m showing a card which has been created mostly from just die-cutting the designer paper, so was easy to make and looks great. I just used images which have Blackberry Bliss, Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen.

The background paper also comes from the Pansy Petals DSP, making this pack even more versatile as everyone loves a gingham don’t they. After stamping a sentiment onto one of the frames from the Scalloped Contours Dies I arranged my pansies over to the left of the card. As a finishing touch I’ve added some of the Fresh Freesia In-Colour Jewels,

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing more with this gorgeous suite so see you then.

Floral Friday: Brushed Blooms

Today I’m showcasing a couple of cards with the Brushed Blooms Bundle. I’m sad this one is not carrying over into our main catalogue as with the mixture of flowers, sentiments and paint effects I think its quite a versatile set and one I haven’t had much time to play with.

These two cards today on the dies as I had a play and made a whole stack of them. I used the fine-tip glue when assembling them as I’m running low on adhesive sheets but they would have made things a lot quicker.

I used Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Polished Pink for my flowers and Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen for the leaves, on a card base of Very Vanilla.

For the background I’ve used a sheet of the Soft Succulent Designer Paper. I think this years designs are the best we’ve has as they are all very generic and easy to use on any project, I do struggle a bit when patterns have a lot of words on them.

To add interest to the backgrounds I’ve used the Basic Borders Dies, these are one of my favourite products from the new catalogue and they are the perfect size for card bases.

Which set are you most sad to see go from the Mini Catalogue?

Shark Frenzy Father’s Day Card

Who remembers the Baby Shark song from a few years ago? My daughter still loves it so when Shark Frenzy was in the Mini Catalogue I knew I had to buy it for her. She’s loved making little sharks and having a good sing song with herself….I can’t stand the song myself!

I’ve made her this card to give to her dad on Sunday as he still indulges her singing.

I used a Basic White Card Base and added some colour with Pool Party Ink using a Blending Brush.

On seperate cardstock I stamped the baby shark and the bigger shark. The baby shark is filled with second generation Misty Moonlight ink and the bigger shark is filled with second generation Grey Granite. As this card is from my daughter I added a pink bow to the baby Shark.

I then stamped the “daddy” at the top left of the card and the “I Love You! ” in the bottom right corner both in Coastal Cabana.

I then diecut some reeds in Shaded Spruce and some bubbles in Coastal Cabana, the multi purpose adhesive sheets are a must for me when working with these small detailed dies as they make adhering to the card so easy.

The Shark Frenzy stamp set and matching dies are on the LastChance list for the January to June Mini Catalogue, so if you want them there is only a few days left to purchase.
