Pansy Petals Pinwheel Tower Card - Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today, I am hopping with the Ink Stamp Share group and showcasing products from the new Stampin' Up! annul catalogue. I've chosen the Pansy Petals Suite because it's my favourite and my inspiration comes from a card I saw on Mixed Up Crafts with Sam Calcott, check out her YouTube channel and blog, she is a very talented crafter.


1 piece of blackberry bliss card stock 7" x 6", 3 pieces 3" x 6"
4 pieces of fresh freesia card stock 2 3/4" x 5 3/4", 4 pieces 1 3/4" x 5 3/4"
4 pieces of dsp 2 1/2" x 5 1/2", 4 pieces 1 1/2" x 5 1/2", 3 flowers and leaves from the dsp sheets
2 pieces of basic white approx 2 1/2" x 3 1/3" for the rectangles
Scraps of evening evergreen, fresh freesia and basic white for the die cuts
Blackberry bliss ink
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Stitched So Sweetly dies
Pansy dies
Pansy Patch stamp set
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the largest piece of blackberry bliss at 1", 2", 3" and 4" and fold and burnish all the score lines.  These score lines will fold around to form the square tube in the centre of the card, adhere in place.

Each of the three other blackberry bliss pieces form the other fins and need to be adhered around the central tube (see picture).

Adhere all the mat layers, all the way around and then the dsp layers, leaving equal borders on all sides.

Die cut 2 stitched scalloped rectangles from the basic white card and 2 stems and the buds from the coloured card.  You can die cut the flowers and leaves from the dsp or fussy cut them with your paper snips, whichever you prefer.

Stamp your sentiments on both of the rectangles and then adhere them to opposite sides of the card, one front and one back to write your message.  Then decorate the plainer panels with cut out flowers as shown in the pictures.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try. Now please pop over and see what the next project is, you are sure to be filled with inspiration.
