I finally decided to play with the “Petal Park Bundle” from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. This was a fun bundle to create with and I’m hoping that it rolls in to the next Annual Catalog. Stampin’ Up! will be releasing the “Retiring” list in two days on March 29th.
I managed to incorporate the “Country Gingham DSP”, also from the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog. I chose a DSP pattern in Mint Macaroon and then Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight for the flowers. You can find the embossing folder in the “Online Exclusives” as part of the “Basics 3D Embossing Folders“. I really like this particular embossing folder as both sides have an interesting detailed look about them. Sadly, the “Basics 3D Embossing Folders” are currently unavailable. BUT they will return to inventory the week of May 1, 2023.
Using the “Scalloped Contours” Dies, I stamped the leaves in Mint Macroon. After stamping, I placed the “scalloped panel” on dimensionals. The “Petal Park” set is a “2-Step” stamp set. A little hint when using this set, stamp one portion of the leaves, then align the second the second photopolymer image over the stamped image. Then pick up the photopolymer stamp with a clear block. This helps the two separate images to “line up” with each other.
I stamped the flowers and then punched them out with the coordinating “Petal Park” Punch. I completed this card with a few “Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels” for the flower centers. Then I tucked a “White Baker’s Twine Bow” under the larger flower which is lifted on dimensionals. Unable to capture this in my photo, but the small “Daffodil Delight” flowers have “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” on the flower centers for a subtle shimmer.
Hope you are not tiring of seeing samples of this FABULOUS “Irresistible Blooms” Bundle and DSP. I absolutely LOVE this suite of products! You can find the “Irresistible Blooms” Bundle, “Hello, Irresistible” DSP and “Loose Frosted Dots” in the “Online Exclusive” offerings. Sadly, these items are currently unavailable, but Stampin’ Up! has indicated they will be available again in April, yay!
I choose Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Basic White as my color palette. As usual, I let the DSP help me choose the colors. First, I stamped the Flirty Flamingo card base with “Flirty Flamingo speckles” all over the background. Next, I layered a piece of the “Hello, Irresistible” DSP on to a Basic White panel. I used the coordinating “dies” to die cut three flowers from the DSP. Lastly, I stamped the leaves tone on tone with Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam, then die cut.
I stamped the greeting in Flirty Flamingo and die cut and layered with the “Something Fancy” Dies. Since I neglected to order the “Loose Frosted Dots”, I used the gold sequins from the “Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins” to embellish the flower centers. The ribbon bow was originally “Vanilla” in color, so I used a “Flirty Flamingo Blends” to alter the color.
The NEW Annual Catalog will be arriving soon! Please be aware that Stampin’ Up! has announced a “Color Refresh“ with the introduction of the NEW Annual Catalog. They will be releasing this information on March 29th. Don’t forget, the 2021-2023 “In Colors” will be retiring along with select colors from the “Core Color Families”. Once this information is announced, inventory tends to disappear VERY QUICKLY! I highly recommend you review your supplies such as reinkers, card stock, embellishments, etc. and be ready to order any retiring items that are your favorites!
Today I have another “Irresistible Blooms” sample to share with you. I have said this several times before, but this “Suite” of products is absolutely fantastic! Makes creating cards fun and super easy! HERE is one of my previous cards with this beautiful “Hello, Irresistible” DSP.
For this card, I let the DSP determine my color palette. I chose Soft Succulent, Basic White plus the soft yellows and peach from the die cut flowers in the DSP. Wondering why you can’t find this “Bundle” in your Annual or Mini Catalog, this is a NEW product offering from Stampin’ Up! Three times a year, Stampin’ Up! will be offering “Online Exclusives” and this products “Suite” is part of their first release.
I used the “circular detail die” from the “Irresistible Blooms” Dies to cut out the “circle” image on the card front. Basically, this gives the card a “window” on the front of the card. Completing this card was super simple with two of the die cut DSP “flowers” and three die cut “leaf stems”. In addition, I added a bow of the “Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon”. Lastly, the “Flat Adhesive-Backed Peals” finish this beautiful card.
