One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up!® is the product coordination. Ink, card stock, Designer Series Paper (DSP), stamp sets…they all work together. Here’s a card that proves my point.
This card uses products from at least three suites and bundles. First, I used the beautiful Daisy Lane Bundle. This bundle includes the Daisy Lane Stamp Set and the Medium Daisy Punch. The stamp set also coordinates with the Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight Stamp Set. I also used the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders from the Woven Threads Suite, and the Perennial Essence DSP and Perennial Essence Floral Centers from the Perennial Essence Suite.
Here are the card details.
First, I die-cut the oval frame using the Heirloom Frames Dies with Petal Pink Cardstock. Then I die-cut again using Whisper White Cardstock (for the center oval). I ran the Petal Pink Oval Frame through my Die-cutting and Embossing Machine using the Heirloom Frames 3D Embossing Folder. I do not have the 3D Embossing Folder Plate yet, so I used the basic platform, gray embossing mat (retired), embossing folder with card stock, then a top plate. You can also use a shim to get a great embossed image. Simply cut a piece of the DSP backing to fit your folder. You can also spritz your card stock with water to get a better impression.
I wanted to bring out the embossing a bit more, so I sponged some Petal Pink Classic Ink over the embossed oval frame.
Next, I stamped images from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set onto the Whisper White Die-Cut Oval. I used the small daisy and the fern image in Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.
I cut three 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ strips of the Perennial Essence DSP and adhered them to a Soft Seafoam card base. Next I added the stamped Whisper White die-cut oval to the card, then added the Petal Pink die-cut and embossed oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The last step was to add some daisies. I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set three times in Petal Pink on Petal Pink Cardstock. After punching with the Medium Daisy Punch, I layered them together and added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the center of the daisy. I also punched a few leaves from Soft Seafoam Cardstock using the Leaf Punch (which also coordinates with the Floral Essence Bundle in the Perennial Essence Suite). I added the leaves and the daisy to the corner of the oval frame.
Can you see how it’s so easy to create using Stampin Up!® products? So many things coordinate! And in most cases, it’s all done for you. Perfect!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day
