Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, our blog hop theme is Party Time! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Today’s card features the Two-Tone Flora bundle in the Mini Catalog. I love a two step stamp set and the Two-Tone Flora is a wonderful set that lines up perfectly with ease. And the coordinating dies make cutting the flowers a breeze.
Materials & Measurements
- Pale Papaya card base: cut at 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Basic White card stock: cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and 3 3/4″ x 5″ (for inside)
- Basic Black card stock: cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ (cut 2 and use 1 for the inside mat)
- Stamp a variety of flowers. I used different combinations of the inks listed below.
- Arrange the flowers and leaves on the Basic Black card stock panel with some extending over the sides.
- Once the flowers are arranged to fill the black panel, place a piece of Press n’ Seal on top of the arrangement and press it down. Then carefully lift it so that the flowers are stuck to the Press n’ Seal. Now you can turn it over and add dimensionals to the backs of the flowers.
- Next place the flowers (still on the Press n’ Seal) back onto the black card stock panel. Now that the flowers are adhered to the panel, you can remove the Press n’ Seal sheet.
- If you don’t have Press n’ Seal, you can add the flowers individually with dimensionals.
- Trim the flowers that are hanging over the edge of the card stock panel.
- Stamp the sentiment. I used a sentiment from the Sale-a-bration Beautifully Happy stamp set.
- Cut the sentiment using a die from the Pretty Pillow dies and glue to the card.
- Add two Loose Frosted Dots to the sentiment strip.
- The inside is stamped with a flower image and sentiment.
Thanks for stopping (or hopping) by today…

This is a great look on the black. I really like your different flower colors. I want to give this a try.
Beautiful design Rosanne! Classic dramatic feel! A pleasure to see how you put your own stamp on our hop Pal!
Love your card, Rosanne! The sentiment stamped on the flower is so pretty!
That black background makes everything pop! Beautiful card inside and out!
Very pretty card. Those flowers are lovely and I like that you stamped your message over a flower on the inside of your card. I always decorate the inside of my cards, but I usually forget to stamp over an image. Inspitational.
Beautiful cards. I love the Two-tone Flora set and all your lovely flowers. They look great on the black background. TFS
The outside is pretty but I LOVE the surprising inside Rosanne!
Oh so pretty! I agree with Rae. The inside is amazing. A beautiful showcase.
So soft and pretty Rosanne. I love your color choice!
Such a striking card, Roseanne! Love the color combination your chose!
Gorgeous card! TFS
Wow, this card is stunning, Rosanne! I am so hesitant to use black on my cards but you show just how it makes the other colors pop. Thanks for joining the blog hop this month!
