Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley Cards

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a pair of sweet cards designed for our Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting last month using the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley is the latest in the series and it includes stamps, dies, designer series paper, embellishments and die cut and laser cut accent sheets. Stampin’ Up! provides the list of coordinating colors so you can use the cardstock and ink that is already in your stash to express your creativity with all the coordinating items.

Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Old Olive panel and pop it on a Terracotta Tile card base with dimensionals. Color the leaves in the Terracotta Tile DSP with Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight. Adhere it to the Old Olive mat and then to the card front with liquid glue. Stamp the flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley stamp set twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Color the leaves with Light Old Olive and the flower centers with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends.

Stamp the sentiment on one of the fancy laser cut labels in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Cut out 3 sets of leaf clusters from Old Olive card stock. Arrange the die cut flowers and leaves and adhere them with liquid glue. Adhere the label with dimensionals and finish the front with clear rhinestone gems.

Stamp the berry cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in Highland Heather ink on the top of a Highland Heather card base. Adhere the tile patterned DSP from Botanical Prints DSP to the Old Olive mat and then to the Highland Heather card base with liquid glue. Stamp the sentiment on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Stamp the berries on a Whisper White panel and color them with Highland Heather, Light So Saffron and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Cut them out with the coordinating die and pop them on the oval with dimensionals. Pop the oval on the card base with dimensionals and accent with three rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the Terracotta Tile card, stamp the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley in two corners of a Whisper White panel in Terracotta Tile ink and adhere it to the inside of the card. Stamp the floral image on the corner of a Whisper White Medium envelope to match.

For the inside of the Highland Heather card, stamp the berries from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley on the lower corner of a Whisper White panel. Adhere it to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The lifelike images of the flowers and fruits in the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley are reminiscent of antique botanical prints and make elegant and pretty cards with an updated and modern feel.

Springtime Lovely as a Tree

For today’s card I used a longtime Stampin’ Up! favorite that is retiring, Lovely as a Tree. In the current annual catalog they show a technique where you color embossing paste with a re-inker and dab it for a textured look. I was inspired by the new Spring growth on the trees nearby and decided to try it using light green ink.

The only light green re-inker I have is the retired Stampin’ Up! color Pistachio Pudding, so I decided to use that since I also have an ink pad in the same color. I wanted to use a light green to represent new leaves in Spring. So I put some embossing paste in a little cup with some drops of re-inker and mixed it up. I stamped the tree line in Soft Suede on a panel of Whisper White and sponged the ground in Pistachio Pudding and the sky in Soft Sky (another retired color). Then I dabbed the tinted embossing paste on the tree branches.

I also used another oldie but goodie for the background paper – Everyday Enchantment designer series paper.  The blue swallows on the paper really go well with the Spring theme of the card.  I cut mats out of Old Olive cardstock (luckily still available) for the background and picture panel. I mounted the background panel and mat on a Pear Pizzaz card base. I cut a little banner and stamped the sentiment with versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

The new Old Olive linen thread was wrapped twice around the picture panel and tied in a bow before popping it on the background with dimensionals. Notice how I flush mounted it on the left side?

The inside of the card is trimmed in more of the Everyday Enchantment dsp and matted again with Old Olive.

It’s sad to say good bye to iconic favorites such as Lovely as a Tree, and it was fun to team it up with other retired oldies but goodies from my stash. The tinted embossing paste was a great new technique to add texture and color to the trees and was pretty easy.

There are still fabulous tree stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! will carry over into the new catalog such as Winter Woods and Rooted in Nature. I think the tinted embossing paste technique will work well on these sets, too.

Thanks for visiting and helping me bid farewell to Lovely as a Tree!
