Framed Florets Swap
Welcome back, Stampers! I am happy to show you my swap from Stampin’ Up!® OnStage. This card is the original, but it’s a little different than the one everyone else received. I realized I wasn’t going to have enough of the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper (DSP), so I had to alter it a bit.
I love this Pre-release Collection! Besides the Framed Florets Stamp Set and Framed Florets Dies (which I, of course, bundled and saved 15%), between now and January, you can add the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper, Framed & Festive Stamp Set, and Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls to your order as well. These coordinate perfectly with the Framed Florets Bundle, but they’re only available through January 4 or while supplies last. Only the Framed Florets Bundle will be available in the January-April Mini Catalog, so order now to avoid disappointment.
To make this card, I started with a Night of Navy card base, then added a layer of Basic White Cardstock. On top of that, I added a layer of the Fitting Florets DSP.
I die-cut the oval and frame from Basic White Cardstock. I love that the die cuts both layers at once! I wanted the frame to be blue, though, so I used a Blending Brush to add a light coat of Night of Navy Ink to the frame. I love that it’s not all one color like card stock would be. I added the frame to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, then stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set in Balmy Blue on the oval Basic White Cardstock and added it inside the frame.
I die-cut some elements using the Framed Florets Dies (and did you notice that the stamp set and dies have the same name? I am so excited about that change!) and Fitting Florets DSP and some Splendid Day DSP, then added them to the card with Multi-purpose Liquid Adhesive.
I stamped the flowers from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends in Mint Macaron, Soft Succulent, Flirty Flamingo, and Daffodil Delight. I added these with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The final touch is the Iridescent Pearls. They didn’t show up as well as I wanted, so I colored them with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.
I will confess that I did a lot of the coloring and assembling in the car on the way to Jacksonville. I totally ran out of time before the event, but since I had hours to just sit, I thought making cards was a good way to spend the time.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a lovely day.
This is a very lovely card!
Thanks, Peggy! Except for the DSP, it’s all in the January-April Mini!
Buffy this is so pretty. I love the flowers wrapped around the frame and the way you’ve colored them
Thanks, Jackie! And I only had to use my Color Lifter one time when we hit a bump and my Stampin’ Blend jumped out of the lines. 🙂
This is a very pretty card, Buffy. I love how you added ink to the frame instead of just using card stock. This is my favorite bundle from the upcoming Mini too!
Thanks, Susan! I like the “organic” look of the blended color.
Thanks, Deborah! This is such a fun collection!
