Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The upcoming January-April Mini Catalog has so many pretty new bundles and one of my favorites is the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle. It is part of the Fancy Flora Suite that is pictured on the front of the catalog. I used many products in this suite for today’s card and they will all be available on January 5, 2023 when the catalog goes live. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty card sketch we are using this week:
I cut a panel of ombre Orchid Oasis Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the large background die from the Stampin’ Up Two-Tone Flora dies and adhered it to another panel of Fancy Flora DSP with dots of liquid glue. A few pieces are separated from the main panel and need to be adhered individually. I adhered the panel to the front of a Pool Party card base.
I stamped the leaf spray from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora photopolymer stamp set in Soft Succulent ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and made a loopy bow with Starry Sky metallic ribbon and adhered it on the leaf spray.
I stamped the sentiment from the Something Fancy cling stamp set in Orchid Oasis ink on Petal Pink card stock. I cut it out with the pretty label die from the Something Fancy dies and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I finished the card with three Calypso Coral iridescent jewels.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora stamp set in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen in the corners of a Basic White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP. I stamped the medium flower detail stamp in Orchid Oasis and stamped the solid flower over it in stamped off Orchid Oasis. I stamped the details of the small flower in Calypso Coral and the background in Petal Pink. I cut the flowers out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the corners of the panel. I trimmed the flowers and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Fancy Flora Suite is beautiful and I really love the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle! The two-step stamping flowers are fun to make and easy to do and they come out beautiful! I love that they all have coordinating dies and the beautiful floral background die is really gorgeus!
