Simple Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… part 1, 2 and 3.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

It’s very tempting with this Suite to do as the name suggests and create ‘ornate’ projects. However, I wanted to showcase something simpler and was inspired by the latest CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in by clicking the link above. The sketch for the latest challenge is shown below…

I immediately thought about using strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the focal point of my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Old Olive cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock.

I cut three different lengths from three different sheets of the Ornate Garden DSP and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive ink directly on to the card front.

This is such a simple card but I love the clean, fresh look. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Next time…

Next month my Suite Showcase will be replaced by a Retiring Product Showcase! Normal service will be resumed in June!

Ornate Thanks Notecard

Hello and welcome to Part 3 of my Ornate Garden Suite Showcase! If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… Part 1 and Part 2.

Today I would like to share with you a notecard and matching envelope that I created using the Ornate Garden Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). These envelopes are quick and simple to make but really add some ‘wow factor’ to your cards.

Let’s make it… Notecard

The card base is created from Terracotta Tile cardstock and measures 12.8 x 11.4cm, scored at 6.4cm along the long edge. This is followed by a piece of the Ornate Garden DSP which has been cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. I have adhered a length of Terracotta Tile ribbon to the die cut using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is stamped onto Terracotta Tile cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gilded Gems.

Let’s make it… Envelope

The envelope is created from a piece of Ornate Garden DSP measuring 18 x 15.5cm. Along the 18cm edge, the DSP is scored at 3.5 and 16cm. Along the 15.5cm edge, the DSP is scored at 4 and 11cm. The rectangles formed by the score lines are snipped away and an extra notch removed at each edge to produce tabs.

Two pieces of Terracotta Tile cardstock are cut out using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. A hole is made in the centre of each of these and at two points on the reverse of the envelope (as shown below). Metallic brads are inserted through the holes. A length of Old Olive ribbon is wound around the brads to secure the envelope.

To decorate the front of the envelope, a length of Terracotta Tile is adhered using Tear & Tape. To follow this, the sentiment and flower image are stamped onto Terracotta Tile cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder; this is then cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. This piece is adhered to the envelope using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The final touch is again provided by a few Gilded Gems.

Taking the extra of effort to create this matching envelope really makes this project special. I’m sure you know someone who deserves this special touch.

Next time…

Join me next Sunday for more inspiration from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite!

Ornate Thanks Card

Hello and welcome! It’s about this time every year that I start delving into my stash of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to see what I have left. The new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue goes live in less than 2 months from now! Super exciting BUT DSP tends not to carry over from catalogue to catalogue, so, if there is something you really love stock up NOW!

One of the DSPs that I’ll miss most is the Noble Peacock Speciality DSP. Featuring Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock, this foil-accented paper is so elegant.

To browse the Stampin’ Up! range of patterned papers, click here.

In today’s card I decided to team it with the equally elegant Ornate Thanks Stamp Set plus the Ornate Layers and Ornate Border Dies.

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pretty Peacock cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Noble Peacock DSP. I have cut a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the same length as the DSP layer and used one of the Ornate Border Dies to decorate the top and bottom. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This sentiment piece is cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. Another piece of the DSP is also die cut using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. These pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What else could I use for the final touch on such an elegant card but the Pearl Basic Jewels?! Stunning!

Ornate Garden Golden Style

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you missed the previous instalment you can find it here.

This week I’d like to share with you this gorgeous, matching, Very Vanilla and Gold gift tag and card. This is such a stylish combination and the pops of colour provided by the Old Olive and Terracotta Tile Ribbon are the perfect finishing touch.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it… Gift Tag

The tag is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. I have used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and the corner rounder from the Detailed Trio Punch to create the basic shape.

The main floral image from the Ornate Style Stamp Set is stamped in Versamark ink onto the tag and then heat embossed using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiment is also heat embossed onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. This sentiment piece is adhered to the main tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A length of the Terracotta Tile Ribbon is threaded through the tag and secured in place using a shorter length of the Old Olive Ribbon.

Let’s make it… Card

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. This is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock which has been embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

A piece of Very Vanilla cardstock has been cut out using the Ornate Layers Dies. I masked off the intricate sections of the die cut and stamped the main floral image in Versamark ink. This was then heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder as with the tag.

A small length of each of the Terracotta Tile and Old Olive Ribbon were adhered to the back of the die cut using Tear & Tape such that they are just visible. This little bit of colour helps to break up the monochrome look and add a bit of extra interest. It also helps to tie the card in with the tag. The die cut is then adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The sentiment piece is then adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gilded Gems.
