Crunched Flower Power

When I first opened my Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack, I was blown away with all the beautiful sheets of paper. I knew that we could make tons of cards and scrapbook pages with this one pack of paper. So tonight, trying to stay away from the television (hubby is a die hard Vikings fan and I'm way too stressed during this football game .. he he), I decided to use some of the Sweet Pea paper I had left over from a prior class. WOW is all I can say. One of the things I like about using designer series paper is it makes a quick and easy card. So many times it seems like there just isn't enough time to make a card when you need it -- and we don't have the luxury to sit for hours and create!! So, over the next week, I'll share some ideas with you for the quick and easy card using the Sweet Peal Designer Series Paper Stack.

The flower on this card is created using the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch. I punched out five flowers and stacked one of top of the other, staggering them a little bit. I tied the button on with Linen Thread and crunched each layer towards the center. Isn't it too cool???? This weekend I showed some of you guys how to make this flower with flowers punched from paperback book pages .. GORGEOUS!!! We definitely have to do this at an upcoming workshop! I also used the Pinking Hearts Border Punch and the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. Do you like the stamp?? That is from the Picture This Stamp Set, which is a Level 1 Hostess Set! I am thrilled with how this card turned out!!! Love it!!!

Below are pictures and information on the paper stack and other items used.

I hope your weekend was great and stay tuned for more quick and easy cards using the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack.
