Stampin Up Ornate Garden Suite - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Yesterday I shared that Stampin’ Up! is offering an exclusive early release of the Ornate Garden Suite from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. This vintage, floral suite has a cheerful spring theme plus a variety of beautiful, coordinated product offerings. If you missed that post you can view it HERE. The great news is you can add these items to your cart today! Check out this short video showcasing the Ornate Garden Suite.

I love this Specialty Designer Series Paper! It is a beautiful mix of floral patterns (and some of the patterns feature gorgeous gold foiling).

I know you are going to want to order the dies and stamps so I am helping with the budget and offering a product share so you can save $ on the DSP, ribbon, and embellishments. I also include coordinating cardstock so you’ll be all set to start creating right away! Here’s a look at what’s included in my “Suite” product share.

I used several of the new products from the Ornate Garden Suite to create this card: Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and Ornate Borders Dies (available as a bundle), Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, and Ornate Garden Ribbon (from the combo pack). The recipient can remove the note from the pocket and reuse the card to send to someone else. Keep spreading the joy!

Positive Thoughts

With everything that’s going on with the Coronavirus right now we can all use some positive thoughts. That’s exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

I love this stamp set and it couldn’t be more appropriate right now! Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for your friends and family. I used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper with this stamp set to create some bright and cheery cards.

I needed to take a break from watching the news so I decide to unplug and play in my craft room most of the day on Saturday. It was so much fun! The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has so many gorgeous floral designs. I will be making more cards using all of them! Here’s a quick video showing each of the different patterns.

Here’s a closer look at each of the cards I created.

For my first card I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and dressed up the edge of the Old Olive strip with a die from Stitched Be Mine Dies. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is so easy to wrap and tie bows! You can also dye it any color you want using Stampin’ Blends!

Purple Posy and Mint Macaron create a beautiful soft color combination. I used the Beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon to create the border trim.

My third card uses Old Olive and Daffodil Delight along with the Stitched Be Mine Die and Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon.

The layout of each is the same with just a few subtle differences with ribbon and trim. Here’s the details:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White layer: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and 1 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • Add ribbon and trim to DSP strip before adhering to card.
  • Stamp sentiment from Positive Thoughts and punch with 1 1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Cut Circle Die in coordinating color to layer sentiment.
  • Punch scrap in same color cardstock as card base using Label Me Pretty Punch
  • Adhere sentiment layer to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add pearls on eaither side of greeting.
  • Stamp sentiment, fern, and butterfly on Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 for inside of card. 
  • Stamp the front of the envelope to coordinate.

My Stampin’ Therapy

Wow!  What a week! I hope you all are staying home and staying healthy! We had to drive to Georgia (2 days each way) to pick up our daughter and move her and all her stuff back home. She would have been graduating in May; however, they have cancelled the graduation and she will have online classes for the remainder of the semester. As we all adjust to the changes in our life one thing we can all do to make a difference is make cards and send cards! Not only is stamping great “therapy” but there are others that need some happy mail now more than ever. A friend of mine works at a nursing home and shared that the residents are anxious and miss having visitors. I have been working on making cards for them. I know it won’t compare to having their loved ones visit but hopefully it will bring a smile to their face knowing that others are thinking of them and care as well! I have been going through my past paper pumpkin kits and using up my extra refill kits, leftover embellishments, etc. These kits make for some quick & easy cards when you need to make many (or a few). I just added some Stampin’ Up note cards & envelopes to create all these cards! . Here’s a look at what I’ve made so far.

April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card. Everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, Stampin’ Up! provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life. This “fam-tastic” kit will be perfect for reaching out and connecting with those who are most important.
