Parcels & Petals

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I’m so happy you stopped by to have a look around. I have a couple of fun projects to share with you featuring the Parcels & Petals Stamp set. I’m really loving the versatility of this stamp set and the coordinating dies. 
First, let’s talk about this card. I got my inspiration from Klompinstamer with this great fun fold. It allows you to showcase both sides of the amazing Designer Series Paper. How often have you agonized over which side to show and which to”hide”?
To create this card, you will need a piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper)  measuring 5 1/2” x 12”. I used a piece from the Garden Lane collection. Then you will score at 1 3/4”; 4 3/4” and 7 3/4”. To create the fold, mountain fold the 7 3/4” score; valley fold the 4 3/4” score line and mountain fold the 1 3/4” score line. I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4” x 5 1/4” and stamped my sentiment and the small leaf image from the Parcels & Petals Stamp set in Garden Green and then adhered the panel to the inside of the card base created with the DSP. 

Then, using Mint Macaron ink, I stamped the large cluster of petals onto a piece of Whisper White
that I had die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I then die cut the word Happy from the Well Written dies from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered that the the Label. I then stamped “For You” in Garden Green from the Well Said Stamp set. I layered that to a die cut piece of Pear Pizzazz and this was adhered to the card front.
For the coordinating gift bag, I used a full sheet of Mint Macaron cardstock, measuring 8 1/2” x 11”. I scored the 11” side at 2”; 5”; 7” and 10”; turn to the 8 1/2” side and score at 2” and 7”.  Now, on 11” sides, cut up the score lines to the intersecting line. Then one of the 11” sides, choose one of the widest tabs to be your bag back, then remove all of the tabs but that one. You may round the corners of this tab if so choose. Stamp the large trio of petal in Mint Macaron ink randomly over the bag. Then add adhesive, preferably Tear & Tape, to the large tab created on the side and close the box/ bag side. Then seal up the bottom.
To create the tag, cut a piece of Whisper White 2” x 3” and die cut the top with the tag topper die
found in the Parcels & Petals die collection and randomly stamp the large trio of petals in Mint Macaron Along with the sentiment and add to the bag with Whisper White Bakers Twine.

I hope these projects inspire you to give them a try. Feel free to leave a comment and if you enjoyed these tutorials and would like to receive more direct to your inbox, join my mailing list
