Petal Passion Memories & More Blank Cards

I haven’t seen too many projects with the Memories & More Petal Passion Card pack, so I decided to whip up a few quick cards with minimal supplies.  In addition to the blank cards you see above, I added Whisper White and Basic Black card stock, the coordinating Petal Palette stamp set and Basic Black stamp pad.  The images were colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.

Memories & More Petal Passion Card

For this first card, I cut the Memories & More card down to 3-3/4″ x 5″ before layering onto a piece of Basic Black card stock. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black archival ink.  After coloring the images, I added a few White Perfect Accents.

Memories & More Petal Passion Thank You Card

I kept this Memories & More card at its original size and layered it onto a 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Basic Black card stock.  The greeting and dot border were stamped in Basic Black archival ink.  To accessorize this card, I added a bit of 3/8″ Whisper White woven ribbon and a strip of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

Monday Montage 92

Welcome back to the Monday Montage blog hop!  Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring paper craft projects.  Be sure to visit all the stops….you don’t want to miss anything!


On Monday, you’ll be able to order select products from the Eastern Palace suite that is featured in the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog.  The suite includes a stamp set, dies, designer series paper, stickers, and mini tassels.  I’ve shared several cards that I’ve created with this set over the last week, but today’s card is my favorite so far.

Eastern Palace MOJO494

I love the simplicity of using the Dapper Denim and Lemon-Lime twist color combo with the new Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  The patterns in the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper are so fun to mix and match.  I used the sketch below from Mojo Monday for the layout.


The larger piece of the Designer Series Paper measures 3″ x 4″ and the smaller piece is 3″ x 3″.  I like to keep my measurements even, so that I can get quite a few pieces from the 12″ x 12″ sheets.  It also prevents me from wasting a lot of paper.  You can get 12 pieces of 3″ x 4″ from a 12″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper.   You can get 16 pieces of 3″ x 3″ squares from a full sheet of Designer Series Paper.  .  I die-cut a large a circle from the Lemon-Lime Twist pattern and added a  1″ wide banner to the back of the layers.  The Layering Circles Framelits complement the Eastern Medallion Framelits dies perfectly.

The Eastern Beauty Photopolymer stamp set includes images that accent the various medallions.  You can see the little floral fans stamped in Dapper Denim ink on the medallion below.  Also, the stamp set includes some great greetings that are perfect for many occasions.

You’ll finally be able to begin purchasing the products from the Eastern Palace Suite on Monday, May 1st.  Are you starting to get excited?

And here is an additional little fact about the Eastern Palace Suite:  it was designed by our very own Kaitlyn.  She works at Stampin’ UP! and she’s been on this hop with us since it started.
