PPA 133 & Blossom Petals Punch Flower Card

Stampin up blossom petal punch loving thoughts catalog demonstrator pals paper arts
It was love at first sight.  When I saw this amazing flower on a cake (lovely idea for a wedding or shower, by the way) on the cover of my Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Success demonstrator magazine, I had to give it a try.  The key to this yummy bloom  is the Stampin’ Up! Blossom Petals Builder Punch.

6a00e54f95df928834016304399d81970dToday’s 5 1/4″ square card is my design for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  The sketch evolved from the talented mind of Pal Margaret Moody.  Having a good sketch is a wonderful starting point for making a card.   See the pretty papercrafting ideas the rest of the Pals Paper Arts Design Team came up with for the sketch and PLAY ALONG!


  • I assembled 16 of the large petals and 8 of the small, all cropped with the Stampin’ Up! Blossom Petals Builder Punch.
  • A Paper Piercing Tool was used to roll the petals (plus a little tweaking with my fingers) into a pretty, curved shape.

  • I find it easiest to adhere petals (the bottom row) to a cropped circle.  I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch for my circle “base.”
  • FUN, SIMPLE DISCOVERY!  I adhered two daisies (Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die) on top of each other for the flower center, gave them a pinch to get the petals to stand up and adhered with Mini Glue Dots to the flower.
  • Loving Thoughts stamp set (Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog, images below) offers “thoughtful” sentiments with a sophisticated font.  “Dare to Dream” is an excellent motto for this graduation card for my daughter, Caroline.  She graduates in a month from high school and will head to college in the Fall (“sniff”).

  • A flower element with this much volume can be tricky to mail.  I like to reserve these types of cards to add to a boxed gift (inside or on top, no envie required ) or deliver in person.  It looks like an elegant gift just the way it is!

  1. Thanks for the instructions on the flower. I made two of them this morning and they turned out so pretty and awesome!

  2. That is soooo lovely!! I just saw another one of these, but I like yours much better. Great idea for the center to use the daisies 2 die piece.

  3. Fantastic dahlia! And congratulations to Caroline on her upcoming graduation. I hope she’s not going too far away from you.

  4. Beautiful! It was a surprise flower for me since I have not received my stampin success yet. Just gorgeous, the colors are great and the little center of the flower is perfect!

  5. Where exactly is the flower rolled? At the top exclusively? I’m not able to reproduce your wonderful results. Thx!

  6. Mary, it’s as beautiful as I knew it would be!! And I guessed all the pieces right :o) My first thought yesterday was that if I made this exact flower in Rose Red it would be perfect for my bridal shower card for the sweet girl marrying my nephew. And you mentioned the same thought! This card is spectacular!!
