Beautiful Botanical Prints

Have you checked out the beautiful Botanical Prints Project Medley on page 61 in the Stampin’ Up! January – June 2020 Mini Catalog?  The product medley is a wonderful kit.  In addition to gorgeous Designer Series Paper, included is a 6-piece cling stamp set, coordinating dies, and accents for creating beautiful projects. The 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper features 8 each of 6 double-sided designs for a total of 48 sheets.  In addition, the product medley contains 4 sheets of die-cut accents, 2 each of 2 designs; 4 sheets of laser-cut overlays, 2 each of 4 designs; Old Olive Twill Ribbon and 12 metal bee embellishments. 

This past weekend I was able to spend some time crafting and created the following card.  It highlights a sheet of the Designer Series Paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  The card design is the Playtime with Paper Team’s weekly challenge and comes from Sunday Stamps design SSC202. The challenges are a fun way for team members to engage with one another and share their interpretation of the design sketch.  Botanical Prints

Beautiful Ornate Garden

Kicking off another week of social distancing and finally able to spend time in my craft cave.  As in my last post, this card utilizes a card sketch design found online.  Since I recently received the Ornate Garden Suite, I opted to feature the beautiful Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It works perfect with the card sketch.  The beautiful Ornate Garden Suite is an early release product from the upcoming 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  It is now available for order until May 31 and then again when the catalog “goes live” on June 3. 

Here’s the sketch design for the card…

Card Details:
  • Card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ Mint Macaron, score at 5-1/2″ with bone folder and fold.
  • Select three (3) coordinating designs of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Cut as follows –  layer one: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, layer two: 4-1/8″ x 2-1/2″, layer three: 4″ x 2-3/4″.  
  • Attach layer one designer series paper to the card base.  Referring to card sketch for placement, add layers two & three.
  • Use the “thinking of you” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the 2″ Circle Punch. 
  • Cut one 4″ piece of 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon and one 4″ piece of Rococo Rose Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Combo Ribbon Package.   Add to the card front, overlapping the two ribbons.  Tie a small bow using the Rococo Rose ribbon.
  • Add the sentiment circle atop the layered ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  • Attach the bow to the side of the circle using a Mini Glue Dot.
  • Complete the card front by adding 3 of the Gilded Gems to accent the sentiment.
