Do You Have a Passion for Flowers?

If you have a passion for flowers then you will love Stampin’ Up!’s Petal Passion Suite on page 22 & 24 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog. The suite includes Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating embellishments, paper, thinlits, ribbon, and embossing folders.
My post today is a case of 3 of the cards on page 22, with slight changes to make it mine. Can you spot the differences on the three cards?

Jeannine Tarrio, Petal Palette, Stampin' Up!,Gift cards

Jeannine Tarrio, Petal Passion Stampin' Blends

The for you card uses Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583) on page 19. I fussy cut the words “for you’ from the Happy Wishes stamp set Page 19 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Did you spot all the differences ?

I love using this suite and have been coloring the papers and using the die cut images on many different cards that I will feature in future posts. Happy Stamping.

Celebrate the More Magic!


I love the vibrant colors and I really think they are magical, don’t you? This card could be used for a graduation, brithday, etc. You could even give it with a little gift to someone who is going on a mini vacation, or for the Fourth of July. Okay, here is my favorite Brusho® background:

A Beautiful Day to Celebrate

Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful Day stamp set looks pretty basic in the 2018 Occasions catalog (see page20) . However, once you mix Brusho® Crystal Colours into the mix, the magic happens.

It does not show as well in a picture, however, the white embossing powder on the watercolor paper shines and looks like glimmer in the light. All coloring is done withan Aqua Painter and the Yellow, Brilliant Red, Prussian Blue, Moss Green, and Gamboge Brusho® Crystal Colours.

Sierra’s Favorite Stamp from Stampin’ Up!

Well, I should have guessed that.  Cake Soiree is my favorite, in fact I was in a card swap with several other Maine demonstrators and it was the set I used for my swap. Sierra must have been snooping around my stamp room.

There are a lot of stamps in this set with both solid and detail stamps for two-step stamping.
