Pretty Pressed Petals

Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape

Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape

Hello Stampers!

Tucked on page 172 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog is a really cool product — Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. It’s a two-roll package, but the one roll is so different than any other washi tape I’ve used before. It peels off in petals so you can create your own flowers! How fun is that?

I started with a white 1/2-inch circle and peeled the petals off the roll one by one. I affixed the centers onto the circle until I had created a flower. You can use the embossing buddy on the back of the flower to prevent the flower from totally sticking to your paper. One roll contains about 100 petals allowing you to create anywhere from 16 to 20 flowers per roll, depending on how many petals you use.

This card was inspired by a journal decorated by Ellen Woodbridge. I easily turned it into a card using other fun Stampin’ Up! products including a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, Pearlized Doilies, the Leaf Punch, Classic Label Punch, Subtle Embossing Folder, and Faceted Gems.

Thanks for stopping by today. You can see a list of all of the products I used below. Click on any of the links to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Gable Box Gifts

Stampin' Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Stampin’ Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Hello Stampers!

Each time I hold a class or event, I love to treat the attendees with some kind of treat packaging — with chocolate inside, of course! Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Gable Boxes are fun to decorate with Designer Series Papers, ribbons, and sentiments. They are perfect for baby shower and bridal shower treats and would even work well for wedding favors. These boxes are retiring from Stampin’ Up! catalog and won’t be available after June 3. You receive 12 boxes for $8.

I decorated the boxes with the 12 x 12 Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (this paper is retiring). I used four pieces: 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 4 inches. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set and is punched out the new Timeless Label Punch.

Be sure to check out the retiring products. Stock up and get your favorites before they’re gone (or have to pay inflated prices on eBay!)

#simplestamping Challenge

#simplestamping/Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree

#simplestamping/Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree

Hello Stampers!

For the last several months, Stampin’ Up! has issued a #simplestamping challenge. This month, the challenge calls for us to create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper featuring a retiring stamp set.

I used Lovely as a Tree as my focal point. This stamp set has been in Stampin’ Up!’s catalog longer than any other set — since 2001. It officially retires June 3 and won’t be available through Stampin’ Up! It’s a staple for the card-maker’s shelf as it lends itself well to a lot of different occasions. I added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, which WILL be available in the upcoming catalog.

This card uses the double-time stamping technique. The Whisper White Thick Card Stock base measures 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches and is folded in half. The Night of Navy piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 inches. The Whisper White center piece measures 3 inches x 2 3/4 inches. To achieve this effect, you place the small white piece on top of the base and stamp your image across both pieces. You then layer the smaller piece onto the Night of Navy layer (sponge fist) and then add it to the card base. Add your sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you love Lovely as a Tree, be sure to place an order for it before June 3. Clock on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store. Let me know if you have questions about this card or any other stamping technique.
