Stampin' Up Petal Passion Simple Cards

I love the Stampin' Up Memories & More card sets, they are designed not only for memories keeping but card making as well. The new card set in the Spring Summer Catalogue is absolutely gorgeous. I am planning on using them for memory keeping but just have to use some for cards as they are so stunning.

Here are just 4 I made very quickly and easily without any need to stamp as I used the sentiments in the cards. An ideal set for someone starting their card making journey as you get stunning results from very little equipment.

These cards were made simply by trimming the Petal Passion Memories & More cards and matting and layering, very simply done with a few bits of cardstock but just look t the stunning results.

Love Bird Card 

Measurements for Love Bird Card

  • The card set has Basic Black, white and Powder Pink.
  • The cards are 6x4 & 3x4
  • I left the  3x4 striped card as it was as its perfect on the card blank
  • For the bird card I trimmed it down to 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 - remember to trim off both sides so the birds stay in the centre  
  • I cut a black mat 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 
  • I cut the Powder Pink mat 4x3


Sentiment Card

Measurements for Sentiment Card

  • I left the 3x4 floral card again as these cards are perfect for a standard card blank
  • I also left the sentiment card 
  • I cut a black mat .so its 1/4" wider and taller 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 (although the sentiment was slightly less than 4" so you may need to revise these dimensions to fit the card size) 


Stepped Up Cards

Then I decided to step it up a bit and use some dies to create a different effect.


Measurements for oval card

  • I used the Oval from the Stitched Framelits ti cut the flower card, the spotted card and the black cardstock
  • I also used the leaf spray from the Petals and More Thinlits 
  • I cut a sentiment from another card and flagged the ends



Single Flower Card



Measurements for Single Flower Card

  • I trimmed a 6x4 card down to 5 3/8th x 3 5/8th
  • I used the Scallop Thinlit die from Seasonal Layers to cut a scalloped edge
  • I cut a at of Basic Black cardstock to 5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I tied a bow using the Whisper White Sheer Ribbon

Watch the tutorial

I have a tutorial on how I put these cards together really quickly and easily.  So sit back and enjoy the tutorial.



I think you will agree these are very stunning cards and so easy and quick to make. Thanks again for joining me today, I look forward to seeing you tomorrow :-)
