Today, I’m joining The What’s New at Stampin Up Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with exciting ideas to share with you.
Today we will feature new products from the Annual Catalog. I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared today.
This month, I’m playing with the Pressed Petals Suite. The pattern paper has these lovely photo-realistic images in it, but this time I’m using the sheet that looks like a linen canvas. You can really see the gorgeous texture in the paper.
This card is a z-fold design. These are really easy to make and they look so unique when completed. To make the z-fold, fold your card base in half and score. Then take the front side and fold it in half. back on itself. You can see the angle below.
Decorating the card is the fun part. I try to make sure that whatever I’m taping to the front of the card, will entirely cover what’s on the inside of the card. I used the same size oval shapes for both. I find the easiest way to do this is to glue down the piece that’s on the inside of the card. Then close your card and adhere the top piece to the front, covering the piece on the bottom. You’ll want to use Tear & Tape for the oval on the front. This will give it extra strength.
The three flowers are made using the new Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. This is a roll of washi tape that’s just individual petals. You can make your flowers as big or small as you want. I found the easiest way to work with these is to punch out a .5″ circle of card stock and then work the petals around the circle. Here’s what that looks like.
After your petals are arranged on your circle, you’ll want to add a bit of baby powder or some other kind of powder to remove the stickiness on the petals. If you don’t remove the sticky, then they will lie flat on the card. By taking the sticky off, the petals curl up naturally.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. If you have any questions about it or how to put all this together, just let me know.
