Stampin’ Up! has really upped their game on Designer Series Papers. There are some really gorgeous packs in the new 2023 January – April Mini Catalog as well as the 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalog. The colors are just gorgeous and there are so many to choose from. Plus, don’t forget there are also some beautiful packs in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog as well.
I used a new pack of DSP from the mini catalog called Fancy Flora. This paper is 6″ x 6″. The best way to explain it is, it looks like it was made from gobs of paint in different colors. I know that doesn’t sound the best but it is true. Here is a photo of the different patterns:
Aren’t the colors just gorgeous!?!
To make this card, I first folded a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of Basic White card stock in half. Next, I used a new bundle called Around The Bend. This bundle includes a stamp set and coordinating dies with the same name (Yay!). I used one of the curved stamps that includes the two lines as the dots with Evening Evergreen ink and stamped in about halfway down the front of the card. The die set includes one that goes with this stamp. It cuts a scallop around each of the dots perfectly.
Next, I cut out all the flowers and leaves using Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen card stock and layered them above the curve line. I cut a piece of the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper and adhered that to the inside of the back of the card. I stamped the sentiment in Evenin Evergreen ink. Lastly, I added some 2021-2022 InColor Opal Rounds between the flowers.
Wow, this card is so pretty with the curves and beautiful DSP. Your flowers are the perfect accent. And bonus, a big sentiment!
This is gorgeous, Susan! And the flowers and DSP are great together. I LOVE the Fancy Flora paper.
