S is for Stylish Stems

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and Special Reason Stamp Set featured on page 42 in the Occasions catalog.

I love fun fold cards!  This pocket card is very simple to make. I started with a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 Sahara Sand as my card base.  I scored it at 1 1/4 and 5 1/2.  The fold is on the bottom and the 1 1/4 piece folds down on the front of the card. I didn’t adhere the sides as the ribbon holds it together.  I just wrapped it around the card and tied a simple knot. I cut a 2 x 4 1/4 piece of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a layer of Sweet Sugarplum that measures 2 1/4 x 4 1/4.  The insert piece measures 3 1/2 x 5 (Very Vanilla) and 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 (Sweet Sugarplum). I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Next, I stamped and cut my floral pieces and layered them on my card.

The Stylish Stems Framelits are unique and very versatile.  Let me forewarn you… these were not on my original wish list as I felt I already had enough florals but, once I saw this video and all the different possibilities, I knew I had to add them to my collection.  I always say, it has to be versatile for me to invest and this one definitely fits that bill! It may just be my new favorite floral!  Check out this video (if you dare)! LOL

I love the projects Holly created in the video and I especially like how you can use the negative image from the die to create different projects.

I had so much fun playing and creating with the Stylish Stem Framelits. Here’s another card I made.  The card measurements are the same but this one is made with the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper, Silver Metallic Ribbon (from Sale-A-Bration), Silver Foil, and Silver Embossing Powder.

Here’s how I layered the floral using the Stylish Stem Framelits and the Layering Circles Framelits.
