Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas
April 16, 2018
I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!
For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack! There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases. I used a couple of packs to make these.
For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.
These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flowers and butterflies .. I was thankful that the TSA didn't take away my handy dandy Paper Snips!! I was cutting them out on the plane on the way to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.
Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea! You can see her cards here.
I used a variety of coordinating cardstock bases for my cards: Powder Pink, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst. The first 3 colors listed here are RETIRING, so if you love them, get them now! See all retiring products HERE.
I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image. That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae. I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.
Above & Below: the greeting is from the Picnic With You set (here) and I colored in the black and white flowers that were printed onto the Memories & More cards with my Stampin' Blends markers.
Above: Tip! Don't forget, it's fun to stamp greetings onto printed designer paper and punch them out.. it can really change the look of your project!
Below: These 4x4 cards do not use the Memories & More card pack, but instead, I used the Petal Passion designer paper (um, only about the best paper pack EVER!) :)
I hope you enjoyed these card ideas! Bless you for hanging in with me for the whole blog post!

These are beautiful cards. But I want to know how you got TSA not to take away your paper snips. I had a pair of plastic rounded tip kids scissors in a make up bag. I had forgotten they were in there. Needless to say, TSA took them away and you would have thought I was a hijacker in training. I would have really been upset if they had been my paper snips.
