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.
