Petal Pair Embossing Folder / Narrow Note Cards video

Believe it or not, these Petal Pair embossing folder Narrow Note cards were inspired by a tissue box... yep, seriously!  These cards were inspired by a Puffs tissue box, and you can watch the story in my video below in this post! :)

Handmade card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Petal Pair embossing folder and Narrow Note Cards with Just Add Color designer paper by Patty Bennett

I embossed each Narrow Note Card about 2/3 of the way with the Petal Pair embossing folder, then added different flowers to each one!

ABOVE:  I colored flowers and the butterfly with Stampin' Blends markers and the Just  Add Color designer paper and added them to the notecard.  The Pear Pizzazz leaves are punched from the Fox Builder Punch.

 

BELOW: I added flowers from the Petal Passion stamp set (pg 23, Occasions catalog) with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and cut the finished stamp image apart to add to the card below.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

BELOW: I stamped the flowers with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist In Color Markers, and the Perennial Birthday stamp set and added them to the embossed card.

ABOVE: the Life is Beautiful sentiment is from the A Mother's Flair stamp set (pg 46 Occasions catalog), stamped on a "tag" die cut from the Bottles & Bubbles framelit die set (pg 32 Occasions catalog).

DIY Mini Gable Box Valentine Treat Idea

 

Are you making little Valentine Treats this year? 

Don't miss the perfect little treat boxes: Silver Mini Gable boxes NEW from Stampin' UP! on pg 13 of your 2018 Occasions catalog!! 

Silver Mini Gable boxes perfect for DIY Valentine Treats or wedding / bridal shower favors!  Heart Happiness floral heart image colored with Stampin' Blends markers. by Patty Bennett

These super cute mini gable boxes can be decorated with any colors, theme or embellishments (and for more than Valentine's day of course!), and filled with candies, treats, small note pad and pen, jewelry, crafting supplies, or of course, my favorite, a little stash of post-it notes :) The "fillable" area measures 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 4".

I have created some sweet little boxes all decorated with the Heart Happiness floral heart (colored with Stampin' Blends markers) and some Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the box.  I cut the Petal Passion paper to 1-3/4" wide x 12" long and it fits perfectly around the box.

For the Real Red heart box above, I also stamped the "Sure do love you" banner with Real Red ink from the "Sure do Love You" stamp set (pg 19 of the Occasions catalog) and die cut it with the banner framelit that is included in the Sure do Love You bundle.  Each box also has Silver Foil die cut hearts.  All of the hearts are die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.

ABOVE:  I think this box would be GORGEOUS for a wedding favor or bridal shower favor if the brides colors included peach.  The box includes a Peekaboo Peach cardstock die cut heart behind the colored floral heart, and Peekaboo Peach crinkled seam binding ribbon.

I colored all of the floral hearts on these boxes with my Stampin' Blends markers after stamping the heart in Memento Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock.

ABOVE: this box was decorated with a more dramatic color scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Fig, Pink Pirouette and Elegant Eggplant... I combined all 4 of those colors, plus the Old Olive in the leaves for this mini gable box!

BELOW: Real Red is always a great choice for Valentine's treats :)

As I mentioned in my video tutorial above, I colored the background of one card with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends marker.  It just lends a completely different feel to this Petal Passion designer paper!

Below: one design note of interest.. I colored the 1/4" Whisper White Organza ribbon with my Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends marker so that it would coordinate with my card (on the right).  Have you tried creating custom colored ribbon?

Possibly my Most Favorite Card EVER

 

I think I may have created my most favorite card EVER.... can you guess which one below is my favorite?

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

I made both of these cards by coloring with my Stampin' Blends markers onto Petal Passion black and white designer paper!

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

For the card above, I colored with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends markers on the designer paper in the background, then layered a piece of Vellum cardstock over it to soften the boldness, and added the Thank You and die cut flowers.  I colored the Thank You with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends and the flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set with the Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  The card base is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and I LOVE how it really makes the colors pop and feel so fresh!

Video Tutorial Tips: Coloring on Petal Passion paper

The Thank You stamp is found in an "online only" set (it's not in any catalog yet). The set is called Color Me Happy and can be found HERE in my online store for wood mount, or HERE for clear mount..  I stamped it onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink, then colored them with each of the pairs of Stampin' Blends markers!

They are die cut with the Stitched Shape oval framelit die.  The shadow on each Thank You is colored with the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

Below: The Color Me Happy kit and stamp set.

The set and kit are available separately or as a bundle.  See the BOTTOM of this post for all online store links.

Color Me Happy stamp set and card kit by Stampin' Up! - perfect for coloring with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 When adding vellum to your project, it's best to use adhesive where you know something else will cover it, so I added adhesive right in the center under the oval "thank you" and the flower die cut.

 

Add vellum on top of any design to soften the colors and bold patterns.

 

The card below also features coloring on the Petal Passion designer paper with Stampin' Blends with Cherry Cobbler and Real Red cardstock.  I finished off the card with a piece of Pear Pizzazz shimmery ribbon.
