Petal Passion Designer Series Paper Meets Amazing You

I spent a relaxing morning recently making this card.  I enjoy coloring as I find it very relaxing and if you like to color, then this Petal Passion DSP from the Petal Passion Suite is a must for you.

I also love Vellum and after coloring the DSP, I added a layer of Vellum to soften the colors and added the sentiments from the Celebrate You Thinlits from Sale-A-Bration.  Here’s how I put the card together:

Paper Preparation:

  • Cut Soft Sky card stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  • Cut Black Card stock 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Cut DSP 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″
  • Cut Vellum card stock  5 1/8″ ” x 3 5/8″, score at 4 7/8″
  • Cut out the You and Amazing with the Celebrate You Thinlits on Black card stock


  • With the Stampin’ Blends, add color to the floral images with the following Blends:
    • Old Olive
    • Daffodil Delight
    • Calypso Coral
    • Pink Pirouette
    • Real Red
  • After coloring in the images, use the Light Pool Party Blend to color in all the background white spaces

Putting it together:

  • Fold over the score line on the Vellum piece.  Add adhesive to the small fold strip and adhere to the back of the DSP from at the top.
  • Add a glue dot to the centre of the yellow flower and then press the Vellum piece over the DSP
  • Adhere the DSP/Vellum layer onto the Black card stock
  • Add a strip of Pool Party seam binding over the lower portion of the panel and secure on the back
  • Adhere to card front
  • Adhere the thinlit pieces to the front of the card and stamp the words from Amazing you under the You
  • Complete the card with a Yellow Glitter enamel dot to the centre of the yellow flower to hide the glue dot

You can make this card too!   To purchase the items for today’s project, SHOP MY ONLINE STORE HERE.

Bubble Over

Today’s card uses another one of the fun bundles in the Occasions catalogue.  Bubble Over has the stamp set and co-ordinating framelits – and one of the free items in Sale-A-Bration you can claim is the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper that co-ordinates with the bundle.

The colors in the DSP are bright and cheery and the framelits are awesome!   I chose Bermuda Bay for the card base and added a panel from the DSP adhered to a Whisper White panel.  The bottles were cut out with the framelits from one of the sheets of the DSP!   So neat.  I cut out two little bottle caps and one of the straws.  There are also Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes that were added to the card.


  • Stamps:  Bubble Over, #145868, Photopolymer (Bundle with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, #146082 and save 10%)
  • Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Bubble & Fizz DSP,, #147244 (SAB)
  • Ink:  Calypso Coral
  • Accessories:  Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, #145663, Glitter & Clear Expoxy Shapes, #145632

Thanks for stopping by on a cool, sunny day – just like Bubble & Fizz!

Petal Palette Black and White

I knew it would be coming when I saw the Petal Passion suite and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper in black and white which is my favourite combination.  I couldn’t resist making this card.

How easy is it to make this card.  Simply stamp the floral image with black ink and cut out with the co-ordinating thinlit from the Petals & More Thinlits.  Cut out the beautiful “filigree” piece from the thinlits and position under the floral piece which has been adhered to the card front with dimensionals.  Complete the card with some classic pearls.

Thanks for stopping by on a beautiful mild day and happy stamping!

Beautiful Peacock – Sale-A-Bration

Yesterday was my Customer Appreciation event and we used the Beautiful Peacock stamp set that you can receive free with a $60 (not including taxes and shipping) order during Sale-A-Bration to make this card.

It stamps so beautifully!  We used Pacific Point for the base card and Lemon Lime Twist for the accent color.  There are also several other new items from the Occasions catalogue that we used for the card.

The Lemon Lime Twist panel was embossed with the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions embossing folder.  Don’t you love those bold lines it creates?

The sentiment piece and the layered piece were punched using the two new Scallop Circle Punches – one is 1 1/8″and the other 1 3/8″.  The scallops are smaller than the scallops on the current scallop circle punches.

The guests received one of these tea bag holders with some English Breakfast and Earl Grey tea.

Petal Palette

The Occasions and Sale-A-Bration started yesterday and when I saw the Petal Passion suite in the Occasions catalogue, I was immediately taken with it.  It features the Petal Palette Bundle that has the Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More Thinlits dies.  There’s a pair of Petal Pair Textured Impressions embossing folders, and these measure 6 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ each, the Petal Passion DSP (love it!) which is black and white, the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon and sweet Petal Passion embellishments.   What’s not to love?

Here’s my card using the bundle.

The card base is Pink Pirouette cut 4 1/4 x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  I cut two pieces of Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ .  I stamped the images on one panel and colored it with the Old Olive and Pale Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I then cut out the top piece of Whisper White over the areas where the images are stamped with the Petals & More Thinlits and then adhered it to the bottom panel with dimensionals.


  • Stamps:  Petal Palette, Happy Birthday Gorgeous
  • Paper:  Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
  • Ink:  Stampin’ Blends Old Olive, Pale Pink, Memento Black, Old Olive
  • Accessories:  Petals & More Thinlits
