We had our Path of Petals Product Class this past weekend and made three cards.
You can see them below and go to the posts by pressing on the photos.
I also showed them a bright and cheerful card I made at my last Shoebox Swap.
The card was designed by Karen Coad.
It was a welcome burst of color in my stamp room. I will get the measurements posted of the DSP once the card is unpacked from my trip. I always want to know the measurements when I see a card like this, don’t you? Sorry I forgot to write them down:( This stamp set is one you have to play with until you get it just right but it is forgiving if you are not spot on. Just get some scrap and play around. I found it easiest to stamp the green stem/leaves first, then the Rococo Rose flowers, and then the Daffodil Delight weedy looking things last. The only reason I got this card done pretty nicely at the swap is I had just worked with this set for my class!
My mom needed a thank you card for a person who LOVES flowers so I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Path of Petals Bundle. I think I fulfilled her request with this card:)
There are so many colors to work with in this pattern in the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I was happy to use my Rococo Rose ink and Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I did use Old Olive as my green even though Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow are listed on the package. I also used So Saffron as my yellow instead of Daffodil Delight ink. I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out the sentiment, and the slanted edges lined up nicely with the circle.
The DSP on the front of the card is 3-3/4″ x 5 with the Night of Navy border being 3-7/8 x 5-1/8. My first plan was to have a tight border around the DSP but it slid in the corner as I had it sitting on my desk. I kinda liked the look so I slid the DSP down into the right lower corner of the Night of Navy panel. I was trying to be crafty by not wrapping the ribbon on both sides of the DSP, I think it may look like I just ran out of ribbon…lol.
I added some of the DSP to the inside and kept a larger border like the front.
The inside panel is 3-3/4″ x 5″.

I have a video showing how to use the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.
I used some NEW Stampin’ Up Products on this card-
the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape, the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder.
I was totally inspired to essentially CASE my friend Janet Munden’s card.
Janet used the new Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder and the Path of Petals Bundle.
I love the coordination of the Pressed Petals Washi Tape and the flowers
in the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes stamp set.
I used Pear Pizzazz ink on the Mossy Meadow cardstock leaves stamped with
the Painted Harvest stamp set and punched out with the Leaf Punch.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
