Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have plans? Yesterday we had a gorgeous spring day. It was 60 out and my daughter and I were running errands without coats on. Today, well a little different. It’s cold with a mix of rain and snow. I really wish spring would get here and stay.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting on Tuesday night. Every month we have a virtual team meeting and so Mystery Stamping at the end. It’s a lot of fun. Our upline emails us measurements and then at the end of the meeting she tells us how to put the card together. All of our cards are similar but different. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Bundle along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #384.

I started by adhering a panel of Pansy Petals DSP to a Basic White card front. I wrapped a piece of the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the side of the panel and tied a bow.

On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips and embossed it using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Pansy Dies, I cut the flower and the flower bud from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I cut the detailed flower outline from a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I cut the stem, 2 leaves and detailed leaves from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I sponged some Mint Macaron Ink on the detailed leave die using my Sponge Dauber. I adhered the detailed flower dies to the solid flower pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower pieces together using Glue Dots. I adhered the leaves behind the flower using Glue Dots. I adhered the flower to the banner panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Pearl Basic Jewel that I colored with my So Saffron Stampin’ Blend Marker in the center of the flower. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to a Basic Whtie card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the smallest pansy image from the Pansy Patch stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the pansy outline and center images from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink over the solid image. I stamped the leaf images from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the pansy. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
