I used the Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White Note card bases that come precut, prescored with envelopes in a pack, and I added some floral designer paper from the Garden Impressions 6×6 paper stack to the front and inside of each card, then put the remaining piece from the 6×6 on the envelope flap!! cuteness!

The bold Thank You So Much stamp and the fun sentiment on the inside are both from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set shown below, #141522 online.  I used Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick ink.

To decorate the front of each card, I used a Pearlized Doily, with a Sweet Pins & Tag tag on top, and stamped it with the “You’re So Awesome” stamp from the Flowering Desert stamp set, in Lovely Lipstick or Calypso Coral ink.

Each card has some flowers that I cut out of the Garden Impressions paper with my Paper Snips and added some Happiness Blooms enamel dots to each flower center.

Fun Craft Tip!

I found that the Four-Petal punch is a quick and easy way to create leaves for my flowers!  I punched it in Call Me Clover cardstock and just tucked it behind the flower!!

Fun creative use for the Stampin' UP! Four-Petal punch - use it for leaves with your flower images! www.PattyStamps.com

Florentine Lattice Background for Petal Palette cards

I really wanted to try a garden lattice effect with the Florentine Thinlit die, so I die cut it in Whisper White cardstock and layered it over 2 different patterns from the Garden Impressions designer paper from Stampin’ Up!.  I added watercolor die cut roses from the Petal Palette stamp set – they look like the climbing roses on a trellis in my garden!  (I just noticed that the Florentine die is on LOW inventory... don’t delay if you want to order one!)

Card Supplies shown below:

  • die cut Florentine thinlit die #149052
  • Garden Impressions designer paper #146289
  • Stamped and watercolored Petal Palette roses #145788

The flowers are stamped with StazOn ink onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Stampin’ UP! ink.  I colored them with a watercolor brush dipped onto a clear block that I smooshed into the following ink pad colors: Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Call my Clover, Granny Apple Green and Cajun Craze.

I experimented with several different patterns from the Garden Impressions designer 6×6 paper stack behind the lattice Florentine die cut piece and the 2 in my blog post today are my 2 favorites.

I love the sentiment above, as I feel it’s perfect for this card.  It’s stamped in Calypso Coral ink on a Stitched Circle die cut and it’s from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  The Base card is Mango Melody, because I thought it looked nice with the Garden Impressions designer paper.

For the Thank you From the Heart sentiment above, I combined 2 stamps from the Petal Palette set onto one die cut tag (from the Humming Along framelits) and added an Epoxy Heart that I colored with my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend marker.  The base card is Call Me Clover cardstock.

I used both the large and small Happiness Blooms Memories & More card bases to create large and small cards with this Suite.  I stamped a bunch of the Bloom by Bloom floral images on Whisper White cardstock with Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel ink and fussy cut them with my paper snips, then layered them onto the large and small cards. The leaves are punched out with the Leaf Punch in Call me Clover cardstock.

When you stamp the flowers on Whisper White, add the Happiness Blooms enamel shapes first, then fussy cut around the entire thing before adding them to you card.  (see below)

Ribbon Tip!

When you want to tie ribbon horizontally around a side fold card, you can use the little circle punch in the Bitty Blooms punch pack to snip a tiny crescent shape in the spine/fold of the card, then you have the perfect opening to slip your ribbon through!

Vibrant Vases and Petal Promenade Cards

Did you stock up on the Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin’ Up! while it was a free gift choice during Sale-a-Bration? If so, you will be all set for the background of these pretty floral notecards featuring the Vibrant Vases stamp set!

Vibrant Vases note card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Petal Promenade designer paper background and layering oval die cut. Thanks a Bunch card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I saw this beautiful combo of the Petal Promenade designer paper and the Vibrant Vases stamp set when one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group team members, Jen Lynn, posted a similar idea to our team facebook group.  I just loved this combo!!  I stamped the vase in Mossy Meadow and the flowers in Calypso Coral. The Stitched white oval matted with a Layering Oval Calypso Coral die cut really makes the focal point pop!

Vibrant Vases note card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Petal Promenade designer paper background and layering oval die cut. Thanks a Bunch card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Thanks a Bunch sentiment was perfect for these cards.  It’s in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. You’ll find the Vibrant Vases set here, and the Petal Promenade paper here.  I tried this card with a Thick Whisper White card base, a Calypso Coral card base and a Grapefruit Grove card base. I ended up liking the white the best.  What do you think?

 

2 TIPS for Square Cards!

When creating square cards, cut your designer paper to 4″ x 4″ and your base card to 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and score/fold it in 1/2 for a 4-1/4″ square card. This will maximize your 12×12 designer paper and allow you to create 9 cards from one sheet!

Secondly, when mailing 4×4 (or 4-1/4″ square) cards, I always use the regular medium A2 size envelopes here.  If you mail a square envelope in the US it costs more in postage. So I just put it in a regular envelope.

 

Stamping supplies for my Vibrant Vases note card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Petal Promenade designer paper background, Vases Builder punch and layering oval die cut. Thanks a Bunch card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped the flower outline and the solid part (stamp at the top of the photo) in Calypso Coral right on the Stitched Shape oval Whisper White die cut.  I Stamped the vases in Mossy Meadow on a scrap and punched them out with the Vases Builder Punch.

Beautiful Bouquet Floral Wreath Card

Confession:  I’m not great at Simple Stamping.  #simplestamping is something Stampin’ Up! has asked us to showcase and share.. simple 1 layer cards with basically just stamps, ink and paper.  I love to embellish and layer with lots of fun paper crafting products on my cards.  However, today, my Beautiful Bouquet Floral Wreath cards come CLOSE to #simplestamping!!

 

Beautiful Bouquet stamp set wreath card idea inspired by Martin Stone. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

Cindee and I created these fun wreath cards together during our monthly stamping day at her house.  We used inspiration from the amazing Martin Stone at Martin’s Mayhem!!  You can see Martin’s post and video here.

 

Beautiful Bouquet stamp set wreath card idea inspired by Martin Stone. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The concept is simple and once you stamp the circle from the Eastern Beauty stamp set (or you could draw a circle) then it’s just a matter of filling in flowers of your choice.  We used the same sets Martin used: Beautiful Bouquet, Varied Vases and Eastern Beauty to create these cards.  If you start with 3 main larger flowers and then start filling in with more images, stamping largest to smallest, it’s pretty easy to just fill in and find a groove when creating your wreath. All Stampin’ Up! products are available in my online Stampin’ Up! store here.

Stampin’ Up! Color Combos:

  • Above:  Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral (Enamel Dots), Granny Apple Green & Call Me Clover
  • Below: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green & Call Me Clover

 

Beautiful Bouquet stamp set wreath card idea inspired by Martin Stone. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

We stamped the circle from Eastern Beauty in Gray Granite ink (stamped off onto our grid sheet first), and then selected 3 to 4 other colors to use for the flowers, leaves and filler. 

You can see Cindee’s cards HERE.. she used different color combos than I did.

Beautiful Bouquet stamp set wreath card idea inspired by Martin Stone. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Both cards are stamped on Thick Whisper White. The card on the left was just left as a simple top fold card, and I added a Linen Thread Bow (Cindee’s brilliant idea).  I also added a punched flower on top of each stamped Poppy Parade flower, for a little extra color.  For the card on the right, I cut down my Whisper White panel, and matted it with Night of Navy, then put it onto the Top Fold Thick Whisper White card base.  Both cards were embellished with the Happiness Blooms enamel dots… I LOVE those!!! 

Hope you enjoyed this idea, and THANK YOU Martin for sharing your talent!
