Stampin' Up! Pretty Petals Garden in Bloom

Hi Stampin' Friends!!

Today I am sharing the last two cards from my Garden in Bloom Online Card Class. I love how all four of these cards turned out.

All of my ideas, layouts, and pretty much everything was CASEd off of cards I spotted on the web. I never CASE exact replicas, as I always add my own style, but they are definitely inspired by other fabulous stampers.

Pretty Garden #3

Stamps: Garden in Bloom
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pretty Petals DSP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Old Olive, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Elegant Dots EF, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, Candy Dots, Linen Thread, Black Lace (retired)

Kit Includes:

1- Very Vanilla card base
1 - Crumb Cake embossed card front
1 - Pretty Petals coral tag
1 - Pretty Petals olive strip
1 - Pretty Petals banner
3 - Basic Black flowers
1 - Black Lace
1 - Linen Thread
3 - Vanilla Candy Dots
1- Black Candy Dots
1 - Very Vanilla circle (Which is not in the picture. Which makes me think I forgot to include it in the kit. So if you did not get a 2 1/2" vanilla circle in your kit and you need one, let me know and I will mail it to you.)


Adhere the embossed Crumb Cake card front to the Very Vanilla card base using Liquid Glue.
Adhere the long, olive strip to the left hand side of the card front.
Tie the black lace to the top of the tag. Adhere near the middle of the card front.
Stamp your sentiment using Tuxedo Black ink (or any black ink you have) on the bottom of the vanilla circle.
Stamp the large outline flower using black ink. Stamp the small outline flower with black ink. Stamp the outline leaf stamp with black ink.
Stamp the large solid flower using Calypso Coral ink. Do the same for the smaller flower.
Stamp the solid leaf images with Old Olive ink.
Stamp the center of the large flower with black ink.
Adhere the stamped circle to your card front using Dimensionals.
Add black flowers around circle using Dimensionals you have cut to fit.
Add vanilla Candy Dots to center of black flowers. Add black Candy Dot to center of small stamped flower.
Tie a loop with the Linen Thread. Attach it under the circle using Glue Dots.
Adhere the Pretty Petals banner under the circle. Trim if necessary.

And now our last card!

Pretty Petals Garden #4

Stamps: Garden in Bloom, Endless Birthday Wishes
Paper: Old Olive, Pretty Petals DSP, Vellum Cardstock
Ink: Staz-On Black Ink (You MUST use this ink on vellum. All other ink will smear.)
Accessories: Calypso Coral marker, Old Olive marker, Rhinestone Jewels, Retired Ribbon

Kit Includes:

1 - Old Olive card base
1 - Pretty Petals DSP card front
1 - Vellum card front
1 - Vellum for stamping
5 - Rhinestone Jewels
1 - Olive Ribbon


Adhere the Pretty Petals DSP card front to the Old Olive card base.
Stamp your sentiment onto the Vellum card front using Staz-On Black ink (You MUST use Staz-On ink on vellum or it will smear!).
Stamp the outline butterflies onto your Vellum card front.
Attach your Vellum to the card front using Glue Dots. I used four dots. Glue Dots practically disappear under vellum so you don't need to be too fussy about placement. I did place mine where I thought the ribbon would hide them. I also placed them under the butterflies. 
Stamp another outline butterfly and the small outline flower and leaves onto the extra piece of vellum. Cut out with scissors.
Attach the cut-out butterfly using Dimensionals.
Color the small flowers with the coral and olive markers. Attach with Dimensionals.
Add the Rhinestone Jewels to the butterflies and flower.
Tie the ribbon around the top.

And you are done!!! I hope you enjoyed your cards. I know I enjoyed designing them for you.

Next up on the agenda (after I finish 30 thank you cards) is to start designing my Watercolor Wings card kits. Never a dull moment in the stamping loft!!

On Monday I will be announcing the Hostess Code for my September Online Card Class. Here is a sneak peek of the set I will be featuring called: Howl-o-ween Treats. 

What I love about this set is it comes with matching Framelits. And it's super cute too!! So stay tuned...

Thanks for stopping by!
Stamp something!!
