Playing With Petals

I was playing with the new "Pick A Petal" stamp set by Stampin' Up! I wasn't sure what I wanted to make. I just knew I wasn't in the mood to cut out petals tonight. I tried several times to get this flower in the corner and not only to get it in the corner but to make it look like you didn't try to squish it in the corner. I will NOT show you my messed up ones! I also wanted to keep the card clean and simple looking too. I wanted layers but not too many. SO I sat and played with layouts until I came up with this card. It's got the clean look I was seeking. It's got layers and the flower is indeed in the corner!!! Once I got it figured out I realized what a quick card this one is. I will be making more of these and in different colors too! The Purely Pomegranate would be pretty, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie. WOW, lots of possibilities here!

I did use a 1 inch circle punch to punch the center of the flower. I stamped it in Black Staz-on and then punched it out. I affixed it to the corner and trimmed it on the sides. This circle is a bit deceiving because of the lines inside are not completely round. I started cutting it out with scissors until I realized how round the circle actually was. I got the punch out and much to my surprise it was perfectly round! Made cutting the circle out SO much easier!! I added my words and and sponged the edges and assembled the card. I gave it a bit of bling and it's ready to go!

Thank you for stopping by!

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment for the next Blog Candy. It's mystery candy tonight! I'll be posting a picture tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing your great card using the Pick a Petal card - I just feel so inspired when I see all the cards made using this set. I will definitely be buying this one along with a few others and having it sent overseas to me by a friend.
