When I saw the Pansy Patch Bundle I knew I had to get it. Pansy’s were one of my Grandma’s favorite flowers.
They are a really beautiful flower and they made gorgeous cards.
There is an entire suite of products to coordinate with the Pansy Patch Bundle and you can check that out here. (The suite collection is on backorder right now but you can still get the bundle, click here for that)
I used the dies from the bundle to cut the pansy from the designer series paper on the first card. Stampin’ UP! does an excellent job of making paper that coordinates with dies, this is a huge time saver.
I also used the Basics Borders dies for these first two cards. I cut the designer paper with the border die at an angle and used both side of the paper to create the card fronts for both cards.
Next I decided to use a mini note card. That gingham designer paper is from the Pansy Petals designer series paper also and is the perfect pattern to pair with just one flower.
Here are a couple of tips for assembling your pansies:
+ The lighter colors make up the inside of the flower. The darker colors are for the border.
+ Use ink with a blending brush to add dimension to the die cuts.
+ On this pansy I used Blackberry Bliss for the outline pieces, Fresh Freesia for the two larger petals at the top and white with daffodil delight inked on the lower petals.
+ For the leaves and stems I used Evening Evergree and cut the base of the leaves in white and then ink blended on to them with Evening Evergreen.
Here are a few examples of the Pansy Patch bundle from Stampin’ UP! One of the things I love about the catalog is how they show up so many examples of how to use their products.
This image shows you how you can cut the pansies from the designer series paper.
