Hello, again! Thanks for joining me. Today I made a video showing the new Ornate Garden Suite’s various stamps, dies, ribbons, and an embossing folder. I used some of these to make a few relatively simple cards if you have a die-cutting/embossing machine. If you don’t, you can still make beautiful cards with the stamp sets, designer paper and ribbon from the collection.
The Suite is new in the Annual Catalog that goes live June 3rd, but they released it early so it’s available now. The papers are lovely, a combination of foiled prints (you can color the white and gold ones!), small and large florals, and subtle backgrounds. There are two stamp sets, one with floral images, and the other with several thank you sentiments, but the additional sentiments can be used for a variety of occasions. Here are two of my cards:
The embossing folder (see the card on the left, is so sweet, and the frames and edge dies are amazing. There are two die sets in this suite:
The left die includes framed rectangles, and the one on the right shows edge dies and freestanding components. Both are used in the cards above. You don’t have to make them quite so girly, though. I used the rose border on this card in black and white:
These are the stamp sets- I tried to show some of the additional sentiments:
So, that’s been my day so far! If you want to watch the video, you can get a better look at the designer papers, and I talk more about how I put the cards together.
Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you enjoyed looking, and, as always but especially in these trying times of social distancing, I encourage you to make and send cards.
