The Pansy Petals suite is my favorite collection in the new catalog. I am partial to pansies and this DSP, stamp set and dies are truly amazing!! Having the Pansy Petals bundle offers so much versatility creating lovely pansies.

The stamp set is Distinktive which creates realistic pansy images easily. I love that the layering stamps off so many options to create wonderful color combos.


I highly recommend cutting a 2” strip of Basic White cardstock and playing with different color combos. Remember to stamp the larger image first choosing a lighter color and then layer with darker colors. Don’t forget to add in some stems and leaves too!

TIP: If your ink pad is too juicy, your image may not have as much detail. To fix this, you can take a bone folder, spoon or butter knife and push the ink from the center of the pad to the edges. I find that this works better than stamping off.

Now that you have a bunch of pansies and leaves stamped and cut, grab some of the gorgeous DSP, 2021-2023 In-color cardstock and create a bunch of beautiful cards! I love having the pre-stamped and cut images ready to go. I can sit down later and make a few cards quickly. It’s so fun and relaxing matching the pansy pieces to the patterns in the DSP.
