Framed Dainty Flowers
Welcome to Stamping with Buffy! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mike & I spent a few days in Williamsburg, VA, and had such a restful and relaxing time. The highlight, as always, was visiting our favorite seafood buffet,
Before we left for the trip, I had made several cards to have ready to post. Here’s the card I will have people make when they say, “Oh, I could never do that!” or, “I’m just not crafty.”
Isn’t that oval floral wreath gorgeous? And doesn’t it look like it takes a lot of effort and talent? Well – think again! This may be the most simple card I’ve ever made.
All I did was stamp the sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink. The beautiful wreath is a piece of the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (DSP) – and it was free! I simply cut the already printed wreath, rounded the edges with what I realize now is a retired Stampin’ Up!® punch (oops!), then adhered it to a slightly larger piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock (also with the edges rounded by the aforementioned retired punch), then to a Pumpkin Pie card base. How easy is that? If you can use a Paper Trimmer, a punch, and a Stamparatus, you can create a card just as beautiful. I also added a few Solid Faceted Gems so I’d feel like I put a little effort into this.
If you look closely, it looks like this was watercolored on our Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and trust me, I do not have those artistic talents. Or, you may think (before you know it’s DSP) that I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color a stamped image and then stamped on card stock and embossed it (because there is a textured look to the paper), but no. I simply cut out the image, then stamped the sentiment. Even a first time stamper will feel successful creating this card.
During Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-braton (through February 28, 2023), you can earn this gorgeous paper free with a $50 order. And that’s easily achieved! For this card, if you purchase a Stamparatus and one ink pad you’ve reached the goal. Or if you have the perfect ink pad, maybe consider some card stock or the Framed Florets Stamp Set or Bundle. Or add the Solid Faceted Gems. Trust me, you do not want to miss out on this paper! You can order on my website or contact me if you have questions!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
Oh, that paper is gorgeous! It really does look like watercolour painting on watercolour paper.
Isn’t it? All of the designs are just beautiful.
I love this paper. It makes crafting to easy yet gorgeous!
I like it too! I swear I made this before I saw the one you made that was very like it. 🙂
This is so pretty. that paper sure does make it quick and easy, doesn’t it!
Thanks, Jackie! And, yes, it does make cardmaking quick and easy.
