Pressed Petals Quick Cards
Hi, Stamping Friends!
If you’re like me, there are days when you need a really quick card, but you still want it to be beautiful and elegant. The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Stampin’ Up!® 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is perfect for those occasions.
Aren’t these gorgeous? I bought the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP because it reminded me of my dear friend Ruth. She always changed my class designs when she made the cards to make them her own, and she rarely used my floral embellishments. One of her hobbies was pressing flowers, and her pressed flowers were gorgeous! I totally understood why she wanted to use her beautiful real flowers on her cards.
One of the paper designs in the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP has gorgeous images you can cut apart, and they’re perfect for using on greeting cards. I actually made four cards, but Mike needed a quick sympathy card before I had time to take a photo. Here are the other three.
For this one, I added the DSP to a Daffodil Delight card base. All I had to do was add a sentiment stamped in Mossy Meadow and punched with the Timeless Label Punch. I also added two butterflies using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Butterfly Duet Punch. I colored the butterflies with Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
This one is simply the DSP on a Crumb Cake card base with a Mossy Meadow stamped Sentiment. It really doesn’t get any easier than that!
For the final card, I added a Timeless Label punched tag with a sentiment stamped in Night of Navy. Again, I added a little butterfly from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set as well as a flower from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set. I punched it with the Medium Daisy Punch, cut it in half and layered the two halves, then added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the daisy.
The sentiments or the cards are from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set (Happy Birthday) and the Path of Petals Stamp Set (Best wishes; Thank You).
You can, of course, add more embellishments, ribbon, and more, but I wanted to keep them simple so the DSP would be the “star.”
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
These cards are so pretty, Buffy. The pressed flowers do look 3D! But you added your own touches that made them more special 🙂
Thanks, Deborah! Of course, this is also one of my favorite papers ever.
How could I not notice this paper before. It is gorgeous and so are your cards!
I bought the whole Pressed Petals Suite, but my favorite is the paper. (That suite bundle number is much too convenient.)
Buffy, these are so pretty. Love that you showed off 3 different versions, with changes/adaptations
Thanks, Jackie! I was happy with how they turned out – and they were so quick!
