This beautiful floral suite is coming your way on April 1st. The Ornate Garden Suite is part of the selection for the new Annual 2020/21 catalogue, coming in June, but as an early release, we get to enjoy it before the catalogue comes live on June 3rd. This card was inspired by a card from a member of the Stampin’ Up! Design Team, Emma Goddard, in the UK.
Cut your card stock as follows:
Card Base – Very Vanilla 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, score at 4-1/4 Very Vanilla (cut 2) 5-1/4 x 4, plus small scrap Garden Green – half sheet Ornate Foil DSP – fussy cut flowers
I heat embossed the large floral design with gold embossing powder, onto Garden Green card stock, then fussy cut it out.
Die cut the larger of the scrolled frames from the Ornate Layers Dies, from the Garden Green card stock.
Emboss one of the Very Vanilla pieces, with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Layer onto the card base, adhering with your favourite snail or liquid glue.
On top of this, layer your Ornate Layers frame, and then place your embossed floral element onto this.
Place your fussy-cut flowers onto your embossed leaf/floral, adhering with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Heat emboss your sentiment, in gold and trim. Embellish with the gilded gems.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial video. Have a great weekend.

I have a feeling that Painted Poppies and So Sentimental are going to be my new favourite stamp sets this season. I cased this design from Kylie Bertucci, a demonstrator in Australia.
My card base is Basic Gray 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
The matte is Highland Heather, cut 5 1/4 x 4″
The front is Whisper White, 3 3/4 x 5″
The sentiment is from “So Sentimental” – (Occasions Mini Catalogue 2020), stamped in Highland Heather. The floral design is from Painted Poppies, stamped in Basic Gray, and coloured with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.
I cut out the sentiment using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. ” So Sentimental” and “Stitched So sweetly” dies are bundled for a savings of 10%, in the Mini Catalogue, when you purchase both together.
Always in need of bling, I used the Highland heather dark Stampin Blend marker to colour some of the Basic Rhinestones, for the front of the card.
This card is based on a card in the Annual catalogue, page 211. Instead of embossing the Pool Party matte, I stamped the iris image with pool party ink, all around the edges.
I cut the front rectangle out of the the whisper white matte, since it was going to be covered by the pool party card stock.
I stamped the floral images and sentiment with Versamark ink, and heat embossed gold embossing powder.
I used the Watercolour pencils Assortment 2, plus the Daffodil Delight from the original watercolour pencils, but you can use whichever colours you like. I used the Blender Pens to blend the colours.
I cut out one of the ornate frames from the Stitched Labels Die set, from Vellum and placed it between the pool party matte and the floral centre piece. A few rhinestones finished the card beautifully.
