I am really loving a lot of the new products in the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I can’t decide which are my favorites yet because I haven’t used all the ones I have purchased but I know I do love the Inked Botanicals Suite. This suite includes the stamp set and dies called Inked & Tiled, Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper, and Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon. You can order the entire suite using one item number (161172) or you can order things separately.
I actually used two different suites on this card. The other suite is called Countryside Inn. This suite includes the stamp set and dies called Countryside Corners, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper and Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder. The Countryside Corners stamp set is actually one large stamp that you can keep together or cut apart using the coordinating dies.
One thing I have discovered is I love the colors Lost Lagoon and Boho Blue together. You are going to see a lot of cards made with this combination. The colors are so soft and pretty together.
To make this card, I first layered a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper onto a Basic White card base. Next, I stamped the large Countryside Corners stamp using Lost Lagoon ink and then cut the entire piece out using the largest Countryside Corners die. I could have used the entire piece for my card but I decided to save the other designs for another card so I used the second largest die to cut out the inner designs to put aside. I used the second largest die to cut out a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock and then embossed it using one of the Basics 3D embossing folders. These folder are not in the catalog but are part of the Online Exclusive products.
Next, I cut out a piece of Basic White card stock using the third largest Countryside Corners die. I used a stamp from the Inked & Tiled bundle for the flowers and stems. I used my Boho Blue and Lost Lagoon Stampin Write Markers to color them. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. I adhered it to the flower piece using Multipurpose Glue and adhered it to the card using Dimensionals.
