I am really loving this new collection that Stampin’ Up!® is releasing on November 1st to customers. As a Demonstrator, we were able to order it early. It is one of the many perks we get as Demonstrators that I love (that and the great discount we get). The collection includes a stamp set called Framed Florets, another stamp set called Framed & Festive, coordinating Framed Festive dies (yes, Stampin’ Up!® actually named the dies the same as the stamp set making things much easier!), Fitting Florest Designer Series Paper and Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls.
I decided to use this new collection for a wedding card I needed to make. It is perfect for that. There are three oval dies included in the dies set. One cuts out a fancy oval, one cuts out an oval frame and one cuts out the little heart oval on my card. I used this die on a piece of Basic White card stock and then backed it with a slightly smaller piece of Highland Heather card stock. Next, I cut out the oval frame in Basic White. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Splendid Thoughts using Memento Black ink in the center.
After that, I stamped the flower bouquet in Memento Black ink and colored it using Highland Heather, Old Olive and Balmy Blue Blends. I adhered it to my card using Mini Dimensionals. I layered everything together on top of a Basic White card base. Lastly, I added some Opals Rounds.
I think this makes a beautiful wedding card.
I can’t share the links of the Framed Floret Collection until Stampin’ Up!® releases it on November 1st but I did put the links to the other products I used.
We participated in another Mystery Parts. This is where one of us sends some Stampin’ Up!® products to the others and we make cards out of them. The only rules are all the parts have to be Stampin’ Up!® products (retired or current) and we have to use all the products sent to us. We can add some of our own products if we wish.
Here are the Mystery Parts that Laura sent us this month:
I am not sure of the names of all the parts but they included a Cherry Cobbler card base, a piece of Basic White card stock, a piece of Designer Series Paper (that I can’t find the name of) and a piece of thread.
This is Laura’s card. She made it into a beautiful Christmas card.
This is Kim’s card. She used the Plentiful Plants bundle and added some more Designer Series Paper and a cute little button.
Here is Karin’s card. I love the cute kitchen set she used and all the splatters.
Here is Char’s card. Char used the other side of the Designer Series Paper! I love those Split Textures Dies!
This is the card I made. I also made it into a Christmas card. To make it I first layered the piece of Designer Series Paper that Laura sent onto the Cherry Cobbler card base. Then I used the soon-to-be-released stamp set called Framed & Festive for the sentiment and the Framed Florets Die set for the oval. These are part of the new bundle Stampin’ Up!® will be released to customers on November 1st. I stamped the trees from the stamp set called Spruced Up in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies also called Spruced Up. I stamped the present in Cherry Cobbler ink and wrapped the piece of thread that Laura sent us around it. I adhered these to the card using Dimensionals.
I love how each card comes out so differently when we do our Monthly Mystery Parts challenges. Look for another one in November.
This is a sneak peek of a new collection that will be available for customers to order on November 1st. It is called Framed Florets and includes two stamp sets called Framed Florets & Framed & Festive, Framed Florets dies, Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper and Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls embellishments. The Framed Florets stamp set and coordinating dies will be in the 2023 January – June Mini Catalog but the Framed & Festive stamp set, Designer Series Paper and embellishments are only while supplies last.
To make this card I first adhered a 3.75″ x 5.25″ piece of the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base. Next, I used one of the oval dies (there are three in the set!) to cut the frame in Blushing Bride card stock and the center in Basic White and glued them to the center of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. One of the things I love about this collection is one of the dies cuts out some of the flowers in the Designer Series Paper which I used on this card.
Overall, this was a very quick and easy card to make. The hardest part was picking out which sheet of DSP I wanted to use. Each sheet is just gorgeous!
