Printed Petals & International Bazaar Card Collection

Hey Stampers,

I could weeks ago, I showed you this fun post, where I made a card collection using the Tea Shoppe stamp set and Tea for Two DSP. I had such fun making these sweet and simple cards, that I decided I would make another collection for my Mother In Law. I gave them to her for Mother's Day and she LOVED them ! I used the retiring Printed Petals and Friendly Phrases stamp sets along with the International Bazaar DSP. I love these bold and fun products together !! I made 5 cards (with matching DSP envelopes) and a little belly band to hold them together ... take a look !!

Here is the collection all together in the Belly Band. I used a some 12" Chocolate Chip cardstock and a strip of the DSP folded around the cards to hold them together. I then decorated them with some of the flowers from the Printed Petals set that I fussy cut and attached together with the retiring In Color Printed Brads (which I LOVE and will miss a whole lot). The little sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set, and then it was die cut using the matching Bitty Banners Framelits. Some lovely 3/8" Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon finishes off this fun package. I love the colors I used on these cards !! I pulled them from the DSP of course, they are Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Chocolate Chip. So bright and bold !!

Here is card #1. I used the same process for these cards: a standard card base of Whisper White with a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of of DSP and a strip of ribbon. All of the sentiments were all stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and punched out with the Decorative Label punch. This card uses the 1-14" Circle Punch to punch out my Tangerine Tango flower. I then layered it onto a 1-3/8" Circle of Lucky Limeade and added a Printed Brad. This was then put on a 1-3/4" Scalloped Circle of Tangerine Tango and added it to the card with some Dimensionals ! A couple of Basic Rhinestones were necessary, of course. LOL

This card used the HUGE flower stamp in Pool Party ink. I stamped it a couple times before adhering my DSP and 1/2" Tangerine Tango Scallop Dots Ribbon. This one needed LOTS of bling, so I used a bunch of the Rhinestones to really add that yummy sparkle.

I think this one is my favourite of the set. I LOVE this DSP so much ! I stamped my 3 flowers in Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry and punched them out with the 1" Circle Punch. I added an Old Olive Brights brad to the centres, and attached them to a 1-14" Scalloped Circle of Lucky Limeade. This was added to my card using more Dimensionals. The ribbon here is the 1/4" Pacific Point Stitched Grosgrain. 

The flower stamp on this card matches the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch. I stamped it in Daffodil Delight, punched it out and added it right on top of my strip of 1/2" Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon. Remember, all of this Scallop Dots ribbon is RETIRING and its on for 40% off too !! So scoop some up !! I took a Rich Razzleberry button (also retiring) and tied some Early Espresso Bakers Twine in a bow in the middle and added it to my flower. Fun and simple !

This last card is another one of my favs. I just love that fun flower embellishment !! This time I stamped 2 in Daffodil Delight ink and 1 in Rich Razzleberry. I punched them with the 1" Circle Punch and added some Pool Party printed brads. I layered this onto some 1-1/4" Scalloped Circles in Pool Party. So sweet !!

Well, thats my FUN card collection today !! Its so amazing to see how the basic design of these cards is identical to the Tea Shoppe collection, but they turned out SO different !! How much DSP and different stamp sets change a project is so surprising sometimes !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
