Thumping Thursday – Petal Garden

August isn’t over and yet our temps are already dipping into single digits at night.  I had to wear a jacket over my sweatshirt this morning when I took the dogs out.  Doesn’t quite seem right to be this cold already but this is one of the wonders and beauty of the changing seasons.

So today I am bringing you a quick card created with the help of the Petal Garden Card Pack.

  • Old Olive card base – cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ along the length and folded in half
  • Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to back of desired Petal Garden Card pack card and attach to card base
  • With the Big Shot, die cut the word ‘love’ using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits die from Gold Foil paper
  • With Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue, attach the die cut word to your card front


Seriously, that’s it.  That is how fast you can put together this card.

Life Happens, Coffee Helps

If you’re a coffee lover like me, I’m sure you will appreciate this card, “Life Happens, Coffee Helps”.  It sure does.  I know I like at least one good size serving each morning to help me move on my way.

Stampin’ Up! continually offers the latest and greatest in products available on the market while making it easy to coordinate. This helps take the guess work out of what will work and what won’t.  To top that off, with the line up of coordinating dies and stamp sets, you can quickly cut out fun images and embellishments to adorn your mini works of art.

For instance, take this fun coffee card.  There are several elements that pull this coffee lovers card together:

  • stamped image
  • die cut image
  • corrugated heart
  • designer paper
  • ribbon

By adding a touch of stamping to your envelope, you can quickly coordinate your project into a gift set.

Using your standard SNAIL Adhesive to attach your elements together and Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the coffee cup to add some depth, this card pulls together quickly.

Have fun with your projects and try new things.  Even if they don’t turn out quite how you planned, it will help you step out of your comfort zone to potentially discover new techniques that you do love.
