My Inky Friends Suite Designs 2019 Blog Hop: Pressed Petals

Welcome to the Suite Designs Blog Hop by My Inky Friends. This month, we each picked a suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. You may be starting here with my Pressed Petals Suite project or perhaps you came from Elizabeth's Come Sail Away projects. After me is Shelley with DinoRoar. How cool is this hop? Super cool.

I chose Pressed Petals because I just can't stop creating with this paper. I love wildflowers, perhaps that's why!

I wanted a reason to show off the lovely Designer Series Paper. Because it's a thinner paper (with a larger quantity of pages), it is PERFECT for this fold:

I used the Petals Label Dies along with the Path of Petals Stamp Set for the sentiment and center piece. They go so well together. I also used the Rococo Rose Gathered Ribbon for a band around the Designer Series Paper. I also added some dimension with the Tufted 3D embossing folder. It's not officially part of the suite, but I think it fits in perfectly. 

To do the double drapery fold, I cut a 5 1/2 by 10 inch piece of the Designer Series Paper.  I then scored every inch and then 1/2 inch in a repeating pattern so I could fold it. The tricky part is cutting the diagonals, but the real trick is to make a mark along the side and on the middle score lines. Then, you line that up on the paper cutter and slice. It's easier in real life than in words. Trust me. Here's a template to help you visualize.

That's all I have for now, but there's much more in this hop! Click Next to see Shelley's DinoRoar projects or Back to see Elizabeth's projects with Come Sail Away.


Happy Stamping!
