Petal Garden Anniversary Card using Stampin Up Products

Hello Everyone,

I managed to get an hour in my craft room today and knew I needed to make an anniversary card, but had no idea where to start. I took out my In Colors cardstock folder, pulled out a piece of Fresh Fig and away I went. The Petal garden DSP has made it so easy to create a beautiful card very quickly. The designs in this paper stack are amazing! I have thoroughly enjoyed making today's card, this is the design I chose for this particular project..

How did I do it? Here's How:-

Make a card base from a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock that measures 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8".

A piece of DSP from the Petal Garden DSP Stack is cut to 3 5/8" x 5 5/8" and layered onto the card base. Cut a piece of whisper white to the same size and glue onto the inside.

Taking the 2nd smallest square die from the Stitched Shapes framelits, cut out a square of whisper white and choose a contrasting piece of DSP to cut the third largest die and run through the big shot machine.

Stamp the greeting - taken from the beautiful Bouquet stamp set, onto the whisper white and layer onto the larger DSP die cut. Make a bow from the Fresh fig 1/8" sheer ribbon and using a glue dot place under the sentiment.  Add this whole piece to the card and you are finished!

I hope you enjoyed this project, and will try it yourself! Here are all of all the products used..

Grateful For a Friend Like You Greetings Card Using Stampin Up Products

Hello Everyone,

My card for today was a little bit of a struggle to create if I'm honest. I am in a Facebook community group called Stampin for All. It's an amazing group where we chat, share and do a load of challenges mainly using Stampin Up but not exclusively.

Last weeks challenge was to create a project with the theme 'Circles'. Now I thought and thought and thought again and this is what I came up with...

How did I do it? Here's How:-

As there is a lot of die cutting work involved I did all of this work first. Cut out the three largest circles from the Stitched shapes Framelit dies in basic grey cardstock, the smallest circle in whisper white cardstock and the two middle sized circles out of different designs of the Naturally Eclectic DSP.

Add the sentiment from the bunch of blossoms stamp set and ink up in Fresh fig and stamp into the centre of the whisper white circle and layer this with a dimensional onto the smallest of the basic gray cardstock circles. Marry the DSP circles to the next size up basic gray circles and put to one side

Take a piece of smoky slate cardstock cut at 5 5/8 x 3 7/8 and place inside the fluttering Embossing folder and run through the big shot.

Using liquid adhesive, layer the embossed smoky slate cardstock onto a card base of whisper white, cut at 4 1/8 x 1 3/4, scored and folded at 5 7/8.

Wrap whisper white bakers twine around the top near the fold several times at different angles and secure with a knot.

Bring back your three circles and position them so the overlap and full the card base.

Very quick and simple, most of the time is die cutting, once all that is done it takes minutes to put together.

I hope you enjoyed this project, and will try it yourself! Here are all of all the products used

Case the Catty - Daisy Delight Thank you Card using Stampin Up Products


From the first time I saw this suite I knew I NEEDED it, it was more than a WANT. I knew I could do so much that I had to purchase it. I use a lot of the elements in this suite on a lot of different projects - it is so versatile. But today, I thought that I would show a project I saw in the catalogue which helps show off the designer series paper and the stamp set. Here is the full page image from the catalogue for this suite....

As you can see in this one image is shows 8 different ideas, So you should utilise your catalogue for inspiration just as often as you look for product. This is the one I chose to replicate today....

Here is my version and it's pretty much exact - expect for the ribbon, in which I used white instead of old olive.

How did I do it? Here's How:-

Take a piece of whisper white cut at 8 1/4" by 5 7/8", scored at 4 1/8" and fold to create your card base. You will also need a piece of whisper white, measuring 5 5/8" by 3 7/8" to use as a base to stick all your strips on. I found this the easiest was to ensure everything lined up properly and it also give the card some extra stability.

Cut three strips of different designer DSP from the daisy delight pack at varying widths.

Using a scrap of whisper white stamp the tiny line of flowers in night of navy.

Stamp the thank you sentiment in old Olive on a piece of card stock the same colour.

Lastly stamp the closed flower image onto daffodil delight in the same colour ink.

Now all you need to do is glue the pieces down onto you whisper white mat. A length of daffodil delight 1/4" double stitched ribbon was added just below the stamped daffodil delight panel.

Add a length of whisper white 1/8"sheer ribbon around the Thank you and tie into a bow.

Adhere the whole panel onto the card base using dimensonals.

I hope you enjoyed this project, and will try it yourself! Here are all of all the products used
