Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle Group Blog Hop: Art Gallery card

This month on the Creative Stampers Blog Hop we are playing with the Fine Art Floral suite. This beautiful suite has a stamp set and dies, some absolutely gorgeous Designer Series Paper, a fun embossing folder, glittery gold ribbon and acetate paper and best of all - gilded leafing! I decided to use the cool tones in the Designer Series Paper for this card.  The base is Pool Party and I embossed another piece of Pool Party with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.  I cut the strips of Designer Series paper at 1/2" and just cut each strip a little bit shorter.  The flowers are stamped with Pool Party and the sentiment is stamped with Night of Navy.  The flowers and sentiment were cut with the coordinating dies. Add some gold ribbon and you have a beautiful, easy card.

Want to see more Fine Art Floral projects? Here's a sneak peek of my project in the Creative Stampers Tutorial. You can get this tutorial by placing an order with me, purchasing it for $22 or for free by being a part of my team.

Magenta Madness Butterflies

 I can not stop playing with this gorgeous butterfly set!  Tonight we made some bright magenta butterflies.

Bermuda Base card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2; scored at 4 1/4
Bermuda Bay DSP - 2 x 4
White - 4 x 4
2 1/4" punched white circle
Scrap of white to stamp and die cut butterflies

You can find the video demonstration of this card HERE

I used the Butterfly Bijou paper for the strip on the right.  That paper has SOLD OUT!  So sorry to see it go.  But you could substitute with any DSP that matches your card base.

These are the other cards we made in card class this week.  They all use the butterflies die cut out of the DSP, but you could substitute them with stamped & colored butterflies.  You can also replace the DSP on these cards. The Artistry Blooms paper has some nice background paper. The Flowers for Every Season paper would also be gorgeous with these butterflies.
