Yesterday I shared some card I’ve made using the Botanical Prints Medley. I had every intention of sharing this post with you tomorrow. But Stampin’ Up! has come up with a give-away idea that made me want to share these cards with you now.
An Opportunity for a FREE Botanical Prints Medley!
On Facebook, Stampin’ Up! posted a note about this Medley and said that they’d be choosing two people who “Like” their post to receive a FREE Medley package. This is a perfect medley for making lots of cards while you’re in a Shelter-in-Place situation.
A Different Take on the Botanical Prints Medley
Yesterday’s cards all used Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Medley. Today’s first card highlight more of the stamps and dies. I got the layout idea for this card on Pinterest. I wrote the name down on a piece of paper that at the moment I cannot find. That surprises me as I’ve been straightening up after every crafting session. I may still find the paper. And, if I do find it, I’ll edit this post with the name of the originator.
I used the corner dies to cut some Old Olive cardstock. If you look closely at either die-cut piece, you’ll see that there are two little round holes on the diagonal side of the die. Before I adhered the bottom left die-cut, I made a pencil mark inside each of those two holes. Then I stamped the top and bottom flower image with the stem ends covering the dots. I colored the flowers (Terracotta Tile and Old Olive) then adhered the die-cut corner (Multipurpose Glue is perfect for this). Finally, I die-cut a third flower, tied a bit of White Baker’s Twine onto the stem, and adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A More Traditional Layout
This is another of those Pinterest cards that I CASEd. What I liked the most about this card was the way the designer tied the ribbon (from the Product Medley) around those three stamped elements on the front of the card.
First I created the back of my card (the black and white DSP is from the Product Medley, too). Then I adhered the three stamped elements using Stampin’ Dimensionals BUT not placing any at the bottom of the elements. That left room for me to slide the ribbon underneath all three and tie a bow at the end. Is that not cool?! I’ll be doing this again for sure!
Oh, and I colored the berrry branches using Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I cut the rectangular pieces, including the sentiment, using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
