Petal Burst Embossing Folder & Botanical Blooms Builder with Thankful Thoughts

Sunday, June 26, 2016


Some of you will be wondering why I haven't posted anything for a few days. After so many health problems and declining health since April 2015, my Mom passed away Wednesday, June 22 in the early morning hours. I have been so busy helping my Dad to get everything arranged for the funeral to come. I'm afraid that for the next couple of weeks, postings will continue to be sporadic because of the funeral, and family coming to visit for a while.

This morning I just had to get to my craft room to create something. So I chose to make something that was quick and easy using the new Petal Burst Embossing Folder I received just a few days ago. I have other ideas for this folder, but as I said, I'm keeping it simple today.


I love  using the Botanical Builder Framelits! You can create simple cards or elaborate card filled with dimensional blooms and foliage! The Petal Burst folder adds some lovely texture behind the bloom.


In the photo below if is difficult to see that the Wild Wasabi layer has been popped up with dimensionals. Of course you can choose not to do this.


I chose not to stamp an image inside this time as the sentiment takes up enough space. I just matted the Whisper White piece inside the card.


So, below you can see the product I used to make this card. I'm looking forward to creating more with both the Petal Burst folder & the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

'Til next time happy stamping!

Floral Phrases & Detailed Floral Thinlits - Brights

Tuesday, June 21, 2016



OK, this one will definately NOT be a part of a class. I was experimenting with this card, and it is a little too involved for a class. But, I am happy to show it to you and those experienced card makers that want to give it a try, go to it.

I was in the mood for brights! (Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, & Melon Mambo) I also wanted to surprise the receiver of the card. They would be expecting the Bermuda Bay to be on the inside of the card as it is the liner to the Detailed Floral Die.


However, when opened there pops the Melon Mambo behind more Olive Green Detailed Floral die cuts. Those two front card flaps are four layers of cardstock, making it quite thick. I had to add an extra layer of cardstock to the back of the card to support the front card flaps.


As an afterthought, I was thinking that maybe having the interior die cuts in Bermuda Bay, rather than Old Olive,  might have looked a bit better.

Experimenting with ideas is fun, and the process always teaches you something new. I encourage you to experiment too.

Happy creating!
