I’ve got a very quick card for you today which you can make in minutes using the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.
This 12″X12″ DSP coordinates with the following punches.
- Heart Punch pack
- Tulip Builder Punch
- Umbrella Builder Punch
- Small Blooms Punch
It’s available until 31st March or while stocks last so you’ll want to get in quick for this pretty pack of paper.
Simply punch out 3 hearts from the DSP using the plain heart from the Heart Punch pack and adhere them to the bottom of your Whisper White layer. Attach a piece of Bermuda Bay ribbon across the top using Tear n’ Tape. Then wrap the Linen Thread 3 times around this layer. I tied the bow separately and attached it with a glue dot.
The sentiment was stamped in Shimmer Black Embossing Powder on Coastal Cabana cardstock. I love how this shines and the black accents the sentiment.

It’s great to have you stop by today. If you are following the hop, you will probably be coming from seeing Anastasia’s lovely project. If I’m your first stop, please go through all the blogs as we all have some great inspiration for this blog hop with an interesting theme of Green Monochromatic.
In Stampin’ Up! we are spoiled with the range of colours we have to work with and for this challenge there was an abundance of greens to choose from. This is the green palette I chose.
The first image I had was a ladies pretty dress and I chose the Wonderful Moments stamp set as it was one of the more recent sets I had got and I was keen to get it inked up.
I started off by stamping the little flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set which can be earned free with a $90 order.
I stamped the lady over the flowers as I felt this looked more natural than trying to stamp the flowers on top of the dress. I then coloured the dress with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. For the final touch, I added some sparkle from the Wink of Stella brush all over the skirt. It just makes this skirt look so pretty and sparkly. My 16 year old daughter, Cassidy, saw it and said she’d love to wear a dress like this.
The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper was a late addition and I think it is perfect for this hop with all the green hues in it. I die cut the panels with the Stitched Rectangle dies. For the Whisper White embossed panel, I extended the die by partially die cutting and then turning and realigning to cut the rest of the panel. This gives me a longer panel than the actual die size.
The additional flowers are from one of my favourites in the Mini Catalogue – the Botanical Prints Product Medley. I coloured and die cut 2 of the bouquets, cutting one in sections to fit over the sentiment. This would make a lovely graduation card.
I hope you have been inspired by my card to try out some monochromatic projects and would love for you to leave me a comment. All products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love the opportunity to help you along your creative journey.

Make it at Home
Welcome to Stamping Flair and a brand new week. So glad you could stop by my blog. I’m hopping with my friends from the Kre8tors Blog Hop group and we have projects focusing on Brides and Babies. Both such wonderful, happy occasions and what a great reason to make a card.
I’ve chosen the Bride theme and created a fancy fold congratulatory card for a wedding using the beautiful Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. This paper has such a vintage look so I created a vintage feel, Front Flip card.This is a very quick fold to make and decorate. The card base is a single layer. The front flap is scored in half and the back part is adhered to the card base.
I really love the script paper in this pack and used it on the base. The flap part has another piece of DSP attached to the front and I stamped the inside with images from the For the Love of Felt stamp set. I like this stamp set for it’s simple, clean images and although designed for the coordinating, For the Love of Felt Project Kit, this set has some lovely images, especially for simple stamping.
The addition of the Delicate Lace die cut border and the Scalloped Lace Trim just add to the vintage feel of this card. The butterfly has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends and I’ve gone around the edges of it, as well as the circles and sentiment with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.
Measurements are listed at the bottom of this post.
I hope you have enjoyed this card. Please leave me a comment below as I love hearing from you. There are fabulous creations in this blog hop so make sure you stop by and have a look. Click on the Next arrow to see what Laura Mackie has prepared.

The Magnolia Lane Suite is such a pretty suite which has so many coordinating products to make your crafting experience easy. It comprises of a stamp set with several sentiments and images including the huge magnolia. There are dies to cut out these images and also some that cut out images from the coordinating Designer Series Paper. Ribbon, twine, Stampin’ Blends also make up this suite.
My card uses the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the Memories & More Card Park which simplifies cardmaking even more. The cards and envelopes have a silver detailing on them and the envelope liners are printed with Mossy Meadow leaves.
I have chosen a Flirty Flamingo card base and coloured my flower with Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I wanted to slightly veer from the colour palette of the suite which is Basic Black, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White. The printed vellum comes in the Memories & More Card Pack. Mounting the vellum onto the Flirty Flamingo changes it’s look.
I hadn’t realized how large that flower was until I got the bundle in my hands. It’s a large flower and so pretty. The best part is – there is a die to cut it out.
Did you Know?
All stamps are shown at actual size in Stampin’ Up! catalogues (unless otherwise stated). This makes it very easy to order the sentiments and images you want as you know exactly what you are going to get.
I added a smaller Memories & More card with a tiny leaf pattern on it and mounted the flower on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it depth.
To make the sentiment stand out, I heat embossed the ‘Congratulations’ in White Embossing powder on Early Espresso cardstock. This created a nice contrast against the busy background.
A new feature in the Annual Catalogue this year is the addition of a simplified one item number ordering system. So when you want to order the entire Magnolia Lane suite, you just need to enter item no. 152178 and it will order all 9 products for you. How easy is that?
This month is Bonus Days so for every $90 you spend you get a $9 voucher to spend in August. Great time to stock up on essentials as well as some of your wish list items.

My projects continue today with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I can’t seem to stop creating with this beautiful range of products which I’m sure, was made for me. If you know anything about me, I love the colour pink and you will find my home decorated with shades of pink from cushions to ornaments and flowers – I love it.
I’ve got a couple of coordinating projects to show you today. The card and mini pizza box have been decorated with the same paper and similar arrangement of flowers. I think this would make a lovely wedding card as you could put money or a gift card in the box.
For the card base and pizza box I chose the softer pink of Blushing Bride to layer my beautiful Rose Gold paper on.
I started the card off by stamping a border on the side of the card with some leaves in Blushing Bride. Tone on Tone stamping adds just the right amount of background without taking over the design. Then I added the Rose Gold detailed paper with Night of Navy striped coordinating paper acting as a border.
The flowers have been stamped in a combination of Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo. Don’t these look lovely together?
Rose Gold shimmer paint was added to the centre of the flowers. I did this by dipping a stylus into the lid of the shimmer paint and then adding dots on the flowers. For the larger flowers, I dragged these dots outwards creating a shimmery centre. You can see the shimmer in the photo below.
Rose Gold foil was used for the fine leaves that have been added to the floral spray. These cut out really easily and the shiny leaves work really well with the little Rose Gold flowers on the Designer Paper. The sentiment was stamped on one of the die cuts from the pre-cut sheets which come in this Medley.
Mini Pizza Box
The gift box is very quick to make with our cute mini pizza boxes. I layered the Designer Paper on top of the Blushing Bride cardstock. then added a coordinating paper on the 4 sides. The flower has been arranged with the leaves as I did for the card to make this a lovely coordinated gift set.
The Everything is Rosy Product Medley is available for a limited time until the end of May or while stocks last. You can see how easy it is to create beautiful projects with these products.
