I am Always Here for You - Botanical Prints

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made using the products in the Botanical Prints Product Medley from the January-June Mini Catalog.  Creativity comes easy when you've got amazing coordinating products. Stampin' Up! doesn't want to brag, but coordination is one of their strong points. The Botanical Prints Product Medley is a perfect example. The medley includes stamps, paper, dies, and accessories for creating cards and more.  Here's a look at my card.


I love the look of the black and white with the pop of color on the paper in the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  I cut the piece of Terracotta Tile DSP down to 3 3/4 x 5 and added it to a Old Olive Cardstock Mat cut at 5 1/4 x 4.  I then added it to my card base.  The card base is a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  Once I had the card front attached to the card base.  I stamped the matching floral image from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink.


I then colored the stamped floral images with my Calypso Coral Dark, Old Olive Light and Dark Petal Pink Light & Dark blends and the Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blend.  The Dark Calypso Coral is very close to Terracotta Tile.  There isn't a Terracotta Tile Stampin' Blend so this was as close as I could get.  I just did simple coloring with the blends to add color to each flower.  I colored with the dark blend first and then blended out with the light.  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and used the Label Me Fancy Punch and punched it out.  I used the ribbon slit on the punch and punched it above and below the sentiment.  I then took some of the Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon and some of the Old Olive Ribbon from the Product Medley.


After putting the ribbons together I slid them through the slits in the sentiment.  I added a couple dimensionals behind the sentiment and placed on the card.  I tucked the floral blossoms behind the sentiment.  I then added one of the copper bee elements from the product medley with a mini glue dots.  I added a piece of the backside of the DSP to the flap of the envelope as well as a strip on the inside.  I also stamped the same floral image to the inside of the card.  This finished off my card.

Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have enjoyed my little look at the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  This is probably one of my favorite products in the catalog.  You get so much in the Product Meadley.  Inside the box is the Stamp Set and Die Bundle, a Pack of 6 x 6 DSP, Embellishment and ribbon. 

Happy Stampin'

Botanical Prints Product Medley - Saturday Simple Stamping

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a Simple Stamping card with you using products from the Botanical Prints Products Medley plus a few additional supplies.  Creativity comes easy when you've got amazing coordinating products. Stampin' Up! doesn't want to brag, but coordination is one of their strong points. The Botanical Prints Product Medley is a perfect example. The medley includes stamps, paper, dies, and accessories for creating cards and more.  With everything included in this product medley it's perfect to make Simple Stamping Cards with when you are just starting out.  Because a majority of what you need plus more is right in the box.  Here's a look at my Saturday Simple Stamping card for this week.

Tips & Tricks: 

Since simple stamping is all about stamps, ink, and paper I found the products in the Botanical Prints Product Medley perfect to create some #simplestamping cards.  I cut a piece of the Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper down and added a matching mat layer behind my designer series paper to enhance the mix of black and white imagery with the bold beautiful colors on the paper.  I added my layer to a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock that I cut down to 4 x 5 1/4.  I simple stamped friend in Terracotta Tile Classic Ink at the bottom of this layer and added it to a Thick Whisper White Base that I cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  


For the inside of the card I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set (which is a Saleabration set this year and can be earned for Free with a qualifying order).  I added a couple of the matching floral images from the Botanical Prints Stamp Set on the inside of the card to tie it in.  I keep the color pallet simple and only used the one color ink.  When you are a beginner this makes your card making so easy because you don't have to hunt for matching ink colors or colors that coordinate.   But if you have followed me for anytime at all you know that I firmly believe as long as you pull your colors from a pack of designer series paper they will match because Stampin' Up! has done all the coordinating work for us.  So, you can rest assured that the colors you pick from the designer series paper will be a perfect match on your card or project.  


To create a perfect matching envelope I stamped the same botanical print in Terracotta Tile Classic Ink on the flap of the envelope.  This creates the perfect coordinating envelope and gives the person on the receiving end a little hint at what's inside.  If you need any of the products you have seen today you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  Thank you for stamping bye don't forget to follow my blog for daily inspiration.
