Mystery Pack – Pretty Petal Washi Tape

Last week’s Mystery Pack recipients received this bundle of items, including the retiring very pretty Petal Washi Tape. Along with these items, a sentiment could also be used to make a card.

I chose to use Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla for my colour combination as they match the Washi Tape and Ribbon Combo Pack. I then added Crushed Curry.

Here is the project I made using the items from the pack.

Click on the video below to see how I put the project together, including the flower.

For the ribbon, I used one strip across the project and then added the twine at the top and bottom. I also cut the Merry Merlot Label Me Lovely Punch shape in half and put it behind the Crushed Curry piece to create a layered look.

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set using Merry Merlot ink. I think it just finshes the card beautifully and makes it a pretty project.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Petal Washi Tape and Very Versailles

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I revisited the fabulous Petal Washi Tape from the Annual Catalogue.

I hadn’t used this for a while, and it was sitting folornly on my desk, so I decided to give it an outing.

It’s teamed here with the Very Versailles Stamp Set to create a vintage look.

My colour combination started with the Merry Merlot of the petals, plus Soft Suede, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla.

A pretty stamped background was the starting point, with the script image in 3rd generation stamping for a softer feel.

Three lengths of rRibbon are then attached to the stamped piece, 2 of Lace Trim and one of Whisper White Seam Binding. The Seam Binding has been coloured uisng the Dark Stampin’ Blend in Soft Suede.

You may have noticed that this seam binding is my favourite product at the moment. You may have also noticed that I am enjoying colouring it with Stampin’ Blends too!

To build the flower, we used a 1/2″ circle and stuck the petals onto it. For the centre of the flower, another 1/2″ circle in Blushing Bride was scrunched and some Soft Suede ink on a Sponge Dauber added a bit of extra texture.

Finally, the centre of the flower was covered with Wink of Stella before being attached to the project.

These petals are simply gorgeous and I really must use them more often.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Pressed Petals Washi Tape

At last week’s Card & Cuppa I decided to turn to the Pressed Petals Washi Tape.

If you haven’t seen this fabulous tape in the Annual Catalogue, then take a look at Page 73.

There are two reels, one is a standard Washi Tape in Soft Suede. The other is these fabulous petals in Merry Merlot. Each one is tacky so you can arrange then where you like. There’s a LOT of petals on the reel.

I chose to create a more vintage style so my colour combination is Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot and Very Vanilla.

A large floral image from the Floral Essence Stamp Set is used for the background, with what would be the flower centre as dot-type images on the Very Vanilla piece.

Tone-on-Tone leaves using the Leaf Punch and a sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set are added before the flower.

I found a handy trick to create the flower is to punch a small circle to build it on. This way, it’s easier to pick up when you’ve finished and add it to the project, instead of creating straight onto the card.

Once the flower is added, a strip of the Soft Suede Washi Tape is attached.

Finally, one of the fabulous yellow Perennial Essence Floral Centres is added.

The possibilities with this Pressed Petals Washi Tape are endless.

Join us for a future Card & Cuppa session. Book your place by 18:00 the day before.
