Fragrant Flowers Friend Card

Stampin' Up! Fragrant Flower Bundle

Have you seen the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper in Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration brochure? (Click here to see an online version of the whole brochure,) The 12 x 12, double-sided paper features bold flower images perfect for card making. At first glance, the images seem to be “too  much.” But I discovered that cutting the paper into smaller pieces makes for some beautiful cards. Click here to see a blog post with a variety of samples. 

FAVORED FLOWERS 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 CM) DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

The Favored Flowers DSP coordinates with the Fragrant Flowers Bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. Two dies cut images directly from the paper. I had a lot of fun making cards with the patterned paper, but wanted to see what I could do with the stamp set and die.

For the card above, I stamped the large flower with Calypso Coral ink on Shimmery White Card Stock and die cut with coordinating die. Layered on Basic Black and a piece of the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.

Be sure to check your order numbers for this bundle. Stampin’ Up! offers it in both photopolymer and cling.

  • Added a piece of Perfectly Penned Designer Series Paper cut at 5 1/4 x 4 on a Basic Black Card Stock base.

  • Added a bow created with black backer’s twine.

Favored Flowers Card Samples

Favored Flowers Card Samples

I hope you’ve seen Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration brochure! (Click here to view an online copy.) It’s filled with some beautiful and fun paper crafting products. Even better, you can earn them free with minimum purchases of $50 and $100 (before tax and shipping). The promotion runs through February 28, 2023, or while supplies last.

Chose from five exclusive stamps sets and four packages of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. Today, I feature card samples using the Favored Flowers 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. I think you’ll love the color combination of Black, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, and Petal Pink.

At first sight, the paper’s bold designs might seem overwhelming, but once you start working with smaller pieces, the possibilities for gorgeous cards are endless. This patterned paper coordinates with the Fragrant Flowers Bundle on page 21 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. The Fragrant Flowers Dies coordinate with the Designer Series Paper, allowing you to die cut some of the flowers directly from the paper. This makes it easy to create quick and cute cards.(See the card a the beginning of this post as an example.)

The card below uses the Blackberry Bliss flowers die cut from the paper.

This next sample showcases the beauty of the paper, using just a strip of the flowers and a coordinating background.

Adorable Owls Twisted Easel Card

Adorable Owls Twisted Easel

My handmade card features the Adorable Owls Stamp Set with the twisted easel fun fold. These cute little owls add a lot of fun to any card. (This stamp set can be earned free with a minimum $50 purchase.)

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Stamp Set

In addition to the Adorable Owls, I used the Country Floral Lane 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

At first glance, this little card appears to open normally. But gently grab corner and it folds. Use the sentiment on the bottom piece as a “kickstand” to make the card stand up. 

I started with a Sweet Sorbet card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 4 1/4. On the long side, score at 4 1/4. Turn the left side of the card stock, and score diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Fold the card in half. On the left side, bring the bottom left tip to the middle top, folding on the score line. Add a Basic White base measuring 4 x 4 and the Country Lane Designer Series Paper measuring 3 3/4 x 3 3/4. Decorate as you wish. Use the same measurements for the bottom piece. Stamp a sentiment and pop up on the bottom to use as a “kickstand.”

This video shows step-by-step visual instructions.
