Stampin' Up! Art Gallery - Best Wishes Card for April's Creative Stampers Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made for the Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop.  The Creative Stampers are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that I have pulled together for one purpose.  And that purpose was to team up and help each other and out customers create by creating a set of tutorials around one suite, theme, or product.  This way we could inspire everyone with creative ideas.  This month the featured item for the Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle for April is the Fine Art Floral Suite from the January - June Mini Catalog.  Each month we share even more ideas using the featured products with you as alternative projects to our project for that month's tutorial bundle.  

The Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle can be earned with any size purchase in my online store or purchased from my tutorial store for $22.00.  Here's a look at my alternative card for this month's hop.

Art Gallery Bundle: 

The Art Gallery Bundle includes the Art Gallery Stamp Set and the Floral Gallery Dies.  The Art Gallery Stamp Set is made from high quality photopolymer.  Which means is completely see through.  
Inspired by impasto paintings, the floral images in the Art Gallery Stamp Set can be used to create a variety of different cards.  You can add one of the sentiments to your creations and you've taken your card-making skills to a whole new level.  The Art Gallery Stamp Set contains 15 photopolymer stamps.  So, it's a nice size set.

The Floral Gallery Dies which is part of the cost saving bundle will allow you to cut stamped images quickly and neatly.  You can use the open dies for artistic floral accents and the label dies for the perfect sentiments in the stamp set.  Plus you have the great big Just want to Say die cut to add to your card or project and take it to a whole new level of floral fine art.  The Floral Gallery Die Set has 7 dies inside.  With the largest die measuring: 2-3/4" x 2-1/2".  This and all our die sets play very nicely with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine and this die set even has dies that you can use the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with; as I did in the video.

Alright I need you to; Imagine an artist, delicately painting individual canvases in a classic impasto style. Are you doing that.  Well, if you are you or have seen these styles of paintings, you know that they can be quite beautiful.  Okay, the painting you are imagining it's beautiful, isn't it?  That's exactly what this Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper is!  A Stampin' Up! artist hand-paint canvases with beautiful florals and textures in classic Stampin' Up! colors.  Then they took those canvases, photographed them, and made them into this unique designer series paper.  I know that your heart will go wild when you get this paper in your hands.  The pack includes florals, patterns, colour variance, and all the touches of professional paintings.  Which was why I used it on my card today!  It just makes my heart go pitter pat and I didn't have to pick up my paints or canvases.

To finish off my card I used the Fine Art Ribbon and the Artistry in Bloom Sequins.  Both of which added a little sparkle to the card.  If you need any of the supplies that you have seen used today you can find them all in my online store from the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below the blog roll.  I hope that you have fun hopping along.  

Happy Stampin'
