Hey Sweets!


Hi everyone! It's Suzanne here today with a card that was inspired by Day 5 of the Online Card Classes' Pattern Play series. Last week there was a great video about how to use large patterns in 12x12 paper for cardmaking by cutting out parts of the pattern to make embellishments. That's what I did on my card today using the Full Bloom paper from Little Yellow Bicycle's Just Because collection:

I was also inspired by the awesome color combination in this pattern, so I used Hero Arts wet cement ink to stamp the dotted washi from On the Strip 2 along the bottom of the card, then adding the handcut flowers on top of it. Next, I stamped the bubbles from Just Thinking of You in Versamark, later adding the sentiment from Sketchy Cupcakes in Hero Arts navy ink:


I added some tiny pearls and crochet thread to embellish the card at the end. Have you tried this technique yet? I am one of the laziest crafters around and have to admit that cutting these flowers was pretty fast and easy!

Thanks for stopping by today,


  1. Suzanne, your card is sooo pretty!!! Great tip/reminder about cutting out elements from patterned paper to use in your design!

  2. I love this card--you did such a great job of picking the right patterned paper, and rearranging the elements for a card.

  3. Fabulous card Suzanne! Love the bold colored flowers.
