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'

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am excited to be the guest designer for this month's Global Design Team's Color Challenge.  My card today not only feature's this month's Global Design Projects Color Challenge colors but I decided to use some new products that will be coming out on April 3, 2020.  I used products from a new suite of products from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at my card.




And here's this month's Colors for this month's Global Design Project Color Challenge.  

The lovely flowers in the Ornate Garden Suite Collection are a modern take on classic Victorian florals. The gold foil accented paper, gems, and shimmery ribbon will add sparkle and elegance to your projects. You’ll love what you can do with this versatile collection. Share your gratitude with the included sentiments or pair with any sentiments for all-occasion projects.  For my card I used both Stamp Sets in this suite, along with the matching Ornate Layers Dies and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  


The other key part to my card is the Ornate Styles Stamp Set.  I used it for the main focus of my card and colored it with the all three colors from the challenge.  As Well as using the colors from today all through my card.  I love the multicolored embossed and die cut focal image.

CASE the Catalog - Easter Promise

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you one of the CASE the Catalog Swap cards that I got back in November.  Easter is around the corner and I wanted to share this cute card with you today.  I am not sure who made this card in the swap group but I love what they did.  The card that was CASED (Copy and Share Everything) from the Easter Promise Card on the top of page 44 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card I received.

Tips & Tricks: 

For this card the card base was made from Purple Posy Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  There's a strip of Purple Posy Cardstock that has been embossed with the Spripty 3D embossing folder along with the stitched nestled label die cuts.  The center square was made with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  

The flowers and the Happy Easter Sentiment were both heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then heat set.  The flowers where colored in with stampin blends in the following colors; Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  Once the flowers where colored they were cut out using snips.  


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  
Happy Stampin'
