Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Thank You

Happy happy….well.  YOU know!  It’s the middle of the week – and it’s a short one at that.  Gotta love a four-day work week, right?!? 🙂

The new 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog has a wonderful Product Medley – called the Botanical Prints Medley.  A product medley is a group of papers, embellishments, stamps and dies carefully curated by Stampin’ Up! to help crafters create all sorts of projects.  I used it to create today’s card.  Take a look-see:


The layout for this one is from this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

I started with some Pretty Peacock DSP (part of the Botanical Prints Product Medley) and adhered it to the front of my Pretty Peacock card base with Liquid Glue.

The art work is a piece of Whisper White, matted on Terracotta Tile.  I wrapped some Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Trim around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the pretty berry image from the Botanical Prints stamp set (included in the Medley) in Tuxedo Black on a seperate piece of Whisper White.  I cut them out with their matching die.

I colored those die cut berries with my Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends.  You don’t really even need the Dark blends – the shading lines in the images do all the work for you! 🙂

I laid the die cuts onto the art panel and used them to determine where to stamp two more berry images in Tuxedo Black.  These I left uncolored.

I popped the two die cut berries onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Botanical Prints sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile on one of the banners included in the Product Medley – and then popped over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a Glue Dot on the left side – and one of the sweet little bee embellishments (yep – from the Botanical Prints Product Medley) on the right – also with a Glue Dot.  Then a few Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a couple more of the berries in Tuxedo Black – coloring them with the Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends – to a Whisper White panel.  I also added some more of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into the Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more colored berries on the front…

…and some more of that beautiful Botanical Prints DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – what a beautiful grouping of goodies this is!  Botanical Prints will bring you a lovely stamp set – with  coordinating dies – botanic print designer paper, labels, die cut images, laser cut panels and…the bees!  THE BEES!!!

Got video?

Yep.  Right here!  Check it out.  And then…get the Botanical Prints Product Medley for yourself.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You

Happy Monday!  Happy Martin Luther King Day – hopefully you’ve got the day off.

I do! 😉

So…y’all know that clean-and-simple isn’t really my thing, right?  Well….today I’m giving it a go.  Using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Thoughtful Blooms ($50 level reward) and the coordinating Small Bloom Punch ($100 level reward).  Take a look-see:

What do you think?  Clean and Simple?  Maybe…clean-and-simple-adjacent? 😉

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then, with a plate from the cupboard – I used a pencil to oh-so-lightly mark a half-circle on the card stock. The red marks on the paper show the half-point of the card stock – so you can see how I lined the plate up.

I used that mark to start laying out the stamped images from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set.  I added stems/branches in Pool Party to start.  Then I laid in some flowers in Flirty Flamingo and Real Red.  The little dots image added some extra “perkiness” in Flirty Flamingo!

I added a Thoughtful Blooms sentiment in Flirty Flamingo.

With the half-circle laid out – I erased the pencil mark.  Then I matted the panel on Flirty Flamingo card stock.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the two larger flower images in Flirty Flamingo and Real Red and punched them with the Small Bloom Punch.

I gently curled each of the punched flowers and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the card front.

I used some of the From My Heart Faceted Gems and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the stamped flowers.  Each of the punched flowers got a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Thoughtful Blooms sentiment in Flirty Flamingo to a Whisper White panel.  Next to it I added some Pool Party “foliage” and Flirty Flamingo dots.  I also adhered another of the punched flowers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo panel and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Thoughtful Blooms flowers and dots on the front…

…and some Pool Party Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this color combination, don’t you?  And this little Sale-A-Bration “set” – Thoughtful Blooms and the Small Bloom Punch aren’t really a “true” set unless you pick BOTH of them as Sale-A-Bration rewards – but they go together like peanut-butter-and-jelly! … really works so well to create lovely flower “scenes”!  I hope you like!

Don’t miss out on my Double Peppermints – for all orders over $50 – AND Free Shipping – for all orders over $126!  That ends tomorrow night!
