Graceful Garden handmade card

  • New Petal Garden Suite includes Graceful Garden stamp set
  • Registration open for June 25 card class
  • Extra Stampin' Rewards ends June 30

Graceful Garden in Berry Burst Fresh Florals

My first use of the Graceful Garden stamp set today, was pure experimentation.  The image is quite large so I only captured a portion of it on my image block.  I wasn't sure if I would like it colored or not, so I tried it both ways.  

Fresh Florals Designer Series Papers in Berry Burst

This is a close up of the plain version.  The rose was stamped in Berry Burst and layered onto a card using Barry Burst cardstock and Fresh Florals Designer Series Papers.  I stamped the  sentiment in Night of Navy directly onto the image block.  

Berry Burst Fresh Florals Designer Series Papers

The rose image below is lightly colored with the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil, and Old Olive watercolor pencil for the stem and leaves.  Looking at the photos, I really like the image colored  However, in real like, I like the plain image better.  

Rose image is water colored with water color pencils

Here are both images together.  One water colored and the other plain.  Seeing them together.  I think I'm more drawn to the water colored version.  Whats your preference?  

Fresh Florals Designer Series Papers

June 25 Card Making Class

Join us for the June 28 class where we'll make the book card box below and 7 matching cards using Fresh Florals Designer Series Papers.  Give 4 cards as a gift with the box and keep some of the cards ready for upcoming occasions.  

Hand made book box for cards using Stampin' Up! Fresh Florals

We'll make these 7 cards and  the matching book box, above, which graciously allowed me to case from her site.  Use the book box as a gift or use it to store your finished cards.   Your A2 cards will fit inside the box.

We'll use Fresh Florals Designer Series paper in Berry Burst, coordinating Berry Burst card stock, dies, accessories and inks from the recently released 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  Once you finish your cards you'll have the perfect template to create more cards using the other new In Color papers from the the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper pack.  Purchase a pack of Fresh Florals papers today along with the coordinating In Color cardstock variety pack and you'll be ready for most any occasion where you need a card.
For your cards, you can choose general sentiments to stamp on your cards -- like the samples -- or choose from a variety of sentiments you'll have available to select from.  

You'll also be able to customize the sentiment on your card box.  Here are two sample sentiments you might select.

Have fun customizing your cards and box.  Just think how much your friends or family will enjoy receiving your special hand made creations.
