Do you love the Coffee Break Suite?

 If you are like me, the Coffee Break Suite (pages 30 and 31 in the current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE online) was one of your favorites over the past year!

Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas

 

I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett
 

For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases.   I used a couple of packs to make these.

For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.

These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

 

Stamp flower and butterfly images from the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set onto the Painted with Love designer paper, then cut out for beautiful images on your handmade cards!

Retiring products available online WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:

Petal Passion Memories & More card pack HERE

Picnic with You stamp set HERE

 

Non retiring stamp sets available here:

Beautiful Day stamp set HERE

Ribbon of Courage stamp set HERE

  Stamp images onto designer paper and cut out with Stampin' UP! paper snips - great way to add a pre-colored image to your handmade card!

 

I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flowers and butterflies .. I was thankful that the TSA didn't take away my handy dandy Paper Snips!!  I was cutting them out on the plane on the way to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.

Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea!  You can see her cards here.

I used a variety of coordinating cardstock bases for my cards: Powder Pink, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst.  The first 3 colors listed here are RETIRING, so if you love them, get them now!  See all retiring products HERE.

I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image.  That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae.  I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.

Above & Below:  the greeting is from the Picnic With You set (here) and I colored in the black and white flowers that were printed onto the Memories & More cards with my Stampin' Blends markers.

Crafting tip: stamp images onto preprinted designer paper like this Stampin' Up! Painted with Love paper, then punch or die cut!

Above:  Tip! Don't forget, it's fun to stamp greetings onto printed designer paper and punch them out.. it can really change the look of your project!

Below:  These 4x4 cards do not use the Memories & More card pack, but instead, I used the Petal Passion designer paper (um, only about the best paper pack EVER!) :)
