Hi, I hope you have all had a very happy Easter! Did you have time to create over this long weekend? I managed to squeeze a little in but my mojo seemed to have gone on its own holiday. One of the things I do when my mojo leaves town is to CASE the catalogue. As I have said many times in the past, the catalogue (and my blog) is here to inspire you when the ideas seem hard to come by. All you have to remember is that you must give credit when it is due (when posting online). I’ve really wanted to do more with the Petal Passion Suite. I love the entire suite but haven’t given it much love lately. I love all of the examples in the catalogue too and have been wanting to recreate them so that’s what I have done today.
For this card, you will need the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack, the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits dies (which is also available as a bundle for a 10% discount). You could also use one of the papers from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper if you like.
Start by selecting two cards from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack – one for the card base and one for the second layer. Stamp the dots stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set on the top card with Pool Party ink. Stamp the little bird in Memento ink as you will be colouring it with Stampin’ Blends markers. Stamp the sentiment on Pool Party cardstock. Die cut out the bird, the leaf die, the little decorative element and the label die while you have the Big Shot out. All that is left to do is assemble the elements on the card. Don’t forget to add the lovely Petal Passion Elements.
Here’s the card…
Isn’t it a lovely design! It isn’t exactly the same as the card in the catalogue but it is pretty close. When CASE-ing the catalogue, you don’t have to recreate it exactly. Just use it for inspiration. Sometimes you might want to recreate the card as closely as possible, other times, you might select to use the colour combinations or the card design. For me, I thought it might be fun to try this card in a different colourway. I’ve used the same design but have substituted the Pool Party with Pink Pirouette.
Here’s the card…
I hope you will give this card a try too. I think it would also look really pretty done in oranges and reds too. What colours do you think would look great?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
