Yay! I got a beautiful box of goodies last night and decided to open it LIVE on my Facebook page. Those that were able to join me live got to see these two gorgeous cards come to life using, you guessed it, the Petal Passion Suite of products straight from the Occasions Catalog! Woo!
The first card we put together was CASE’d and modified slightly. The sample in the catalog showed a square card, but I wanted to make it a standard size, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I was VERY surprised at how beautifully the Lemon Lime Twist stamped on Pool Party cardstock! It turned out BEAUTIFUL!
Using one of the Petal Pairs Embossing Folder on Whisper White cardstock, and tearing the edges adds a little dimension to this beautiful card. I also really liked how the Organza Ribbon looks tucked slightly under the embossed piece. The white embossing on the Basic Black cardstock really POPS and stands out in an elegant way. Not to mention blinging it up a bit with the Petal Passions Embellishment and some Rhinestones!
This isn’t my “typical” color scheme, but I was pleasantly surprised with how it all came together and how much I actually LOVE this beautiful card! I just want to keep making them! I can’t stop! Seriously! I might need assistance…
Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Pool Party Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Strip: 2-1/4″ x 5″
Basic Black Circle: 2-3/8″ (Stitched Shapes Framelits)
For the second card, I got to dig into the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and my new Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive along with the Color Lifter! I still have some playing around to do with the Blends, but I really like how the Color Lifter softened the edges of the coloring.
I also used the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes to add some “dew drops” to the flowers. I LOVE the glitter! The Stitched Shapes Framelit circle I used was slightly larger than the one they used in the catalog, but still looks beautiful on this non-standard sized card.
I love how we can cut apart sentiments to create personalized sayings, like the For You on this card. I stamped two different sentiments and cut out the words I wanted to use.
Whisper White Cardbase: 5″ x 6″, score @ 3″
Petal Passion DSP: 3″ x 5″
Whisper White Circle: 2-3/4″ (Stitched Shapes Framelits)
Whisper White Scrap: Approx. 4″ x 4″
(Don’t forget the adhesives!)
