  • Birthday Card using Fitting Florets Collection - now available
  • See what's in the From the North Pole Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • North Pole Treat Sack Add-On for Paper Pumpkin Kits 

The Fitting Florets Collection is now available for customers to purchase.  I've been playing with this set for the past few weeks and love the versatility of this Collection.   This is a limited- time Collection.  The full Collection is available until 4 January 2023, or until sold out.  Then, the Framed Florets Bundle will be carried in the 2023 Mini catalog.  This Stampin' Up! Collection includes two stamp sets, coordinating dies plus Designer Series Paper and Gold Swirl accessories that works for Fall and Christmas Holidays and takes you right into Spring with hearts and beautiful floral prints.  I used the Framed Florets Bundle and Fitting Florets 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper for my card today.  I made two version of this card, and I'm still undecided which I prefer.  I added a Basic white frame to one of the versions.  I used the Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, and Balmy Blue as my  color palette for the card.  I loved how the Balmy Blue hearts peek out from around the oval opening.  I added a fussy-cut floral bouquet from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper, and a Blushing Bride die cut flower from the Cottage Flowers Dies.   Add this Collection to your November order, and you'll have a fresh, new multi-occasion Collection to work with that will express your sentiment for many occasions.

Floral Birthday Card created using Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle

This card uses a basecard of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Then a  Blushing Bride print layer from the Fitting Florets 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper die cut with a die from the Framed Florets Dies.  I added a Balmy Blue layer under the Designer Series Paper so the Balmy Blue hearts surround the Balmy Blue sentiment layer.

Next, I used a birthday sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set, and VersaMark Ink to stamp a sentiment on the Balmy Blue oval.  I covered it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with my Heat tool.  On one card, I added an Oval Basic White frame to see which I liked better.  I find I like both of these samples equally!  What about you?  Which is your favorite?

To complete the card, I fussy cut one of the floral bouquets from the Fitting Florets 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper, a Blushing Bride Die cut from Cottage Flowers Dies, and Vellum stems using one of the Framed Florets Dies.  I added a Petal Pink bow, and my card was finished.
