A Cool New Product... Check it Out!

Happy Friday everyone.  Hope you all had a great week.  Mine was the same hum-drum week, working my day job, so Fridays are always the highlight of my week. Is that the same for you?

Today I wanted to share a card featuring the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and.... The NEW Pressed Petals Washi Tape.  Here is the card (you can click on it to bring up larger):

I love this card!  The colors and flowers... OH!  Speaking of flowers.  The Flower, with the metal Designer Elements piece, is made with the NEW PRESSED PETALS WASHI TAPE!  Yes, washi tape.  Each petal is individual and you peal them off the roll and stick them onto your project.  It is so cool.  

The Pressed Petals tape comes in a 2 pack.  The other roll is the ruler looking strip on the right side of the card.  I cut my card base 7-1/2 x 5-1/2 still scoring at 4-1/4 inches.  When you fold on the score line, you see one inch of your inside so I added the piece of washi tape to coordinate. 

For the front of the card, the Pressed Petals designer series paper is cut 5-1/4 x 3.  This also means, you can make several cards.  By cutting at 3 inches, you will get 8 pieces per sheet of designer paper!

Here is an angle picture so you can see the opening a little better:

I completed the card with the Happy Birthday sentiment from a stamp set called 'Here's a Card', stamped in Merry Merlot ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  

Below is the list of products I used on this card.  Let me know if you have any questions and have a great weekend!

It's your time to shine... with Daisies

Hey!  Did you know that there is a New Daisy Punch?

Stampin' Up! is calling it the Medium Daisy and it is the perfect match or compliment to the larger Daisy Punch we carried over from the last catalog.  Now you can layer the two punches together like I did on my 'It's your time to shine' card.  The words are from the stamp set "Daisy Lane".  The stamp set coordinates with both punches and you can purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle at a 10% discount! 

Oh, and this is my Team Swap card... I will be sharing the others shortly.

I used Petal Pink card stock for the base, a layer of Whisper White and the top background paper is the gorgeous Perennial Essence Design Series Paper! 

Paper Saving Tip:  stamp and punch your daisies from the Whisper White layer!!!

Stamp two large daisies and two smaller daisies in Petal Pink ink.  Attach each layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

My flower center is the metal embellishment called Designer Element found on page 178 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  You get one sheet of these in 3 finishes!  I used the Antique Copper finish.  These are my new favorite embellishment in the Annual catalog. 

Leaf Punch was used with Old Olive card stock.

Sprig Punch was used with Vellum card stock.
