Garden Impressions Suite – CASE the Catalog

Happy Monday!  You have probably seen the Garden Impressions Suite in the catalog.  So enjoy this week’s CASE the Catalog sample because it’s a variation of a card on page 128 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.   

Garden Impressions Suite

First of all, the card in the catalog uses Soft Seafoam Cardstock as the base.  I also used a layer of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Abstract Impressions stamp set to create the second layer.  Because I used the same card design, I changed up the card base to Night of Navy cardstock and because I didn’t stamp the second layer, I decided to use coordinating designs from the Garden Impressions DSP for the two layers below the layer with the sentiment.

Due to the DSP having lots of wonderful colors, it certainly makes it great to use for a variety of card designs.  Night of Navy ink was used to stamp the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set.  Furthermore, it was cut with the next to the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Similarly, Mini Gold Sequin Trim and Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine was also added as an embellishment before attaching the sentiment with stampin’ dimensionals.  

CASE the Catalog

Below are measurements used for creating the card base design:

Base:  cardstock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ 

Designer Series Paper: first layer 4 1/4″ x 4 1/2″; second layer: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ 

Finally, when you are struggling to come up with a card design, remember to look through the catalog for ideas.  It’s okay to use the catalog designs and is encouraged.  Above all, I want to convey how easy it is to take a design from the catalog.  Because when you change up the paper or colors, you probably have a totally different look with the same layout.

OnStage Display Board Sample – Mini Treat Bag featuring Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I was excited to have been selected to participate at OnStage as a display board sample maker and it was a lot of fun to receive a box of upcoming products from Stampin’ Up! to use for making the samples.  Of course, it required that I not share the products or show finished projects until after the meeting and now I am able to start sharing the projects with you.  One of the new products received was the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper package – this 6″x 6″ package of paper containing 4 each of 12 double-sided designs is gorgeous and I used it for making most of my projects.  The first project being highlighted is a Mini Treat Bag made with one of the papers from the package.  My box of new products also contained the Blossoms Elements embellishments and the Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon so they were used on this project also.  A Delicate White Doily was wrapped around one edge of the mini treat bag and held in place with the Powder Pink Cardstock belly band.  After wrapping the ribbon around the band, the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies were used to cut the Tranquil Tide Cardstock and Gold Foil creating a backdrop for the flower embellishments.  The tag was cut using the Bouquet Bunch Framelits and stamped using the coordinating Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.
