Fine Art Floral Suite by Stampin’ Up

The Fine Art Floral Suite by Stampin’ Up is jam-packed with wonderful elements. There are stamps, dies, embossing folders, vinyl sheets, a ribbon, gold leafing, and DSP. And that Designer Series Paper is what I wanted to focus on today.

I love this fun fold layout. It is perfect for when you have so many beautiful papers and you just can’t decide which pattern to choose. That is exactly why I chose this layout for today’s project. This card looks like it took hours to make, but it actually goes together pretty quickly.

The belly band is always a favorite for me! As an alternative, you could put the folded card into one of our acetate boxes and put the band around the box instead of the card base.

Remember, you can get tons of card layout ideas from Stampin’ Up catalogs! I even keep my old ones to look at for inspiration. I hope that you enjoyed learning how to. use the Foam Adhesive Sheets. It is one of those things that you might see in the catalog, yet not understand how to use. I do not use them often. However, they really do make a nice design element.

More Gorgeous Posies Cards

Stampin’ Up offers many types of kits. Some of them include absolutely everything. Other kits offer the option of adding on a special stamp set. This is the case with the Gorgeous Posies Project Kit. You can make the cards using the coordinating stamp set or substitute in one of your favorites. For this card I took the stamp set and created a card that didn’t use any of the kit supplies. This was simply to remind you that you can continue to make cards long after the kit contents are gone.

I simply stamped my own DSP using the stamp set. The strip on the left was embossed using one of the embossing folders from the Forever Greenery Suite. Then I mixed some ink refill with our Frost White Shimmer Paint. Next I took an old Wink of Stella brush and painted the raised areas. Ribbon and a bow completed my creation.

Here are more photos of cards that come with the kit. I made the cards per the instructions . But feel free to get creative with the supplies!

This is a Get Well greeting card made with Stampin' UP's Gorgeous Posies Project Kit.

As I said in the video, I am not usually a purple girl. But I feel these cards are just absolutely lovely! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
