In today’s post, Pressed Petals Suite Part Three, I share another sample from Stampin’ Up! made from this beautiful suite in the annual catalog. You can click here to see the post where I first introduced these products with a Stampin’ Up! video and pictures of samples. And, you can click here for the post about the Pressed Petals Journal that includes the list of materials and instructions for making the sample journal by Stampin’ Up!

Here is an array of samples from Stampin’ Up! on page #72 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. All of these samples use products from the Pressed Petals Suite, along with other materials and supplies.

Pressed Petals Suite by Stampin' Up!

The Pressed Petals Suite is built around love and gratitude. The stamps and Designer Series Papers remind me of saving flowers and corsages and pressing them between book pages to preserve them. Does anyone still do that?  You may not have to, because the products in this suite will give the same nostalgic effect!

Today’s sample is a lovely card for strength and peace. The sentiment is “hoping you can find strength for today and peace for tomorrow”.  You can send it for encouragement, sympathy, illness or recovery. The card was made using the petals, leaves and sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set. Two inks, Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy were mixed together using an Aqua Painter to create a new color. To make this card, you need a Big Shot for dry embossing and die cutting, in addition to an Aqua Painter.

The Pressed Petals Suite

The card base is made from Mossy Meadow cardstock, and the layer of Soft Seafoam cardstock is embossed with the Scripty 3D Emobssing Folder passed through a Big Shot. An oval was cut from the layer, likely with a the largest of the Layering Oval dies (2 7/8″ c 3 3/16″). The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow.

For the coloring technique, place a small amount of Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy ink on a clear stamping block, or other smooth surface. Use Shimmery White cardstock (or water color paper), because other cardstock is not suitable for the Aqua Painters; the water breaks the fibers and the cardstock warps. 

To mix the colors, add some water to the Aqua Painter, and then squeeze the bulb into the ink to water it down a little. Mix the colors together then apply the new color onto the cardstock. Let the color air dry before cutting or gluing or the ink may spread and smear.

Stamp the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock, then cut it out with the oval die. To assemble the card, add the layers except the sentiment. Wrap the linen trim around the card, and tie a bow, then adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the peacefulness of the colors and the sweet sentiment. We all appreciate receiving warm thoughts and kind words during life’s trials, and this card delivers on thoughtfulness. 

Here are the Stampin’ Up! materials used to make the card. The Path of Petals Bundle includes the Path of Petals stamp set and the Petal Labels Dies with a 10% discount. Click on any image below for more information or to purchase in my online store.
