Stampin' Up! Pansy Patch and Thanks Embossing Folder Card

Pansies are a gorgeous, tri-colored flower. They are a staple in my gardens every year, so imagine how excited I was when the Stampin' Up! Pansy Patch stamp set and coordinating Pansy Dies showed up in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog! I had to have the whole Pansy Petals Suite Collection. When it arrived, it did not disappoint -- it's fabulous. This is my first card with the products -- a simple card but oh, so pretty!

Take a look at some photos of pansies from my past gardens. As you can see, purple pansies are my favorite, thus the inspiration for this card.


Card Tutorial

Ingredients

  • Stamp Set: Pansy Patch

  • Dies: Pansy Dies

  • Ink Pads: Gorgeous Grape, Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Soft Succulent

  • Cardstock: Basic White, Fresh Freesia

  • Embossing Folder: "Thanks" from the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folders pack

  • Adhesives: Stampin' Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals

Tools

  • Basic Supply Kit: paper trimmer, paper snips/scissors, bone folder, acrylic stamping blocks

  • Stampin' Up! Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine (SUCE*)

  • Optional: low tack tape for holding dies in place when running them through the SUCE, such as washi tape or, my absolute favorite, "Spellbinders - Best Ever Craft Tape" (yes, that is what it is named; it can be found from various online shops)

*SUCE (noun, homophone) / soo-kee): the abbreviated, short-hand name for the Stampin' Up! Cut and Emboss machine. The term SUCE was invented by Barry and Jay of Mitosu Crafts (check out their amazing YouTube videos); the term SUCE was inspired by their cat named Sukie (also pronounced soo-kee, thus creating the homophone) =)
