I love using up offcuts and making my own embellishments, so when I received the brand new Fitting Florets collection I was super excited to see possibilities using the Framed Florets dies!
The “offcuts” from the large oval die (top left die in the picture above) give you a stack of tiny hearts, ideal for embellishing your cards or using in shaker cards – I’ll be sharing a shaker card with you later this week. Today’s card uses these hearts as an embellishment.
I’ve also used a limited time product from the Fitting Florets collection – the Fitting Florets DSP – which I’ve fussy cut and die cut using the Framed Florets die that is designed to die cut these flower sprays in the DSP.
Here’s a close up of the tiny hearts – aren’t they just adorable! I’ve die cut them from Blushing Bride and Polished Pink cardstock to match the flowers in the Fitting Florets DSP. The dark Evening Evergreen cardstock layer is a great colour to make these embellishments pop.
I found the best way to adhere these was to position them on the card front, take a photo for reference, them place a small amount of Multipurpose Glue where each heart goes, using the sticky end of the “Take a Pick” tool to gently place each heart on the glue.
The “for a special person on a special day” sentiment is from the Framed Florets stamp set, stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut using the Stylish Shapes dies.
If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store from tomorrow, November 1!
I’ll be back tonight with the AWH Heart of Christmas blog where we will be sharing some Christmas inspiration.
Wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
Welcome to week sixteen of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
New product alert! Checkout the gorgeous Fitting Florets Collection!
It includes products that will be in the upcoming January-June Mini Catalogue, as well as three products of which will only be available from November 1 for a limited period of time.
The limited time products from this collection include:
The Framed & Festive Stamp Set – a Christmas sentiment set
The Fitting Florets DSP – both floral and patterned designs in Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Evening Evergreen, Night of Navy, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent.
For all my cards I’ve used the Evening Evergreen/Soft Succulent/Basic White leaves and berries patterned paper from the Fitting Florets DSP to make three Christmas Cards, changing the colours slightly for each card.
All three cards also use sentiments that are stamped and framed using the Framed Florets Bundle, available from November 1 until the end of June 2023.
Card one is a monochrome card that uses just the colours in this DSP pattern, along with die cut embellishments in Evening Evergreen Glimmer Specialty Paper, die cut using the Framed Florets dies.
White Classic Matte Dots coordinate with the white berries on the DSP.
Card two adds a touch of Petal Pink, with a layer of Petal Pink card stock and berries on the DSP coloured in with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends!
Three Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gems are the perfect embellishment to match the Petal Pink berries.
Card three adds Crumb Cake to the colour mix.
The stems of the Textural Elements are coloured with the Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and the Natural Finish Ribbon has been stamped in Evening Evergreen using the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set.
Strips of leftover DSP and additional sentiments decorate the inside of all three cards.
