Story of Elegance

Good morning and Happy Tuesday to you!!

I’m happy that you decided to stop by again.  Today I’m continuing to play with the Ornate Garden Suite and the Perfectly Framed bundle.

The Ornate Garden Suite is a new set of products that will be available in our upcoming 2021 Annual catalog later in the year.  Stampin’ Up! has made this set of products available for early purchase this month for demonstrators and next month for customers!  Woo hoo!  The Suite is absolutely beautiful and jam-packed with goodies.   With the suite you’ll get –  2 Die sets:  Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders, 2 Stamp sets : Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style, Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (two colors), Gilded Gems and fabulous 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Here are two more cards that I’ve crafted using products from this suite.  With so many of my friends and family spending time at home, like many of you, I’ll be sending cards and notes to stay in touch and spread a little sunshine.

For this card, I used Ornate Borders die set to cut the roses along the edge of a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the floral image using Pear Pizzazz ink and a stamp from the Ornate Style stamp set.  The sentiment panel is cut from the Ornate Frames die set.   In a matter of minutes I have a pretty little card that ready to say hello to my loved ones.  Super easy!

It was pretty gray here in Ohio when I took this picture, so it’s hard to tell that this is a lovely medium rose color – Rococo Rose. I used the same stamp sets for the this card as I did for the previous card.  Similarly, I cut the border along the edge of the Whisper White card stock panel using a border die from the Ornate Borders die set.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add a little height to the sentiment panel.

A Word About Paper Pumpkin

In many of my recent posts, I’ve shared information about our crafting subscription service, Paper Pumpkin.  Now is a great time to consider this product purchase.  Here are a few reasons why:

  1. It’s a great way to start paper crafting! If you are new to paper crafting, Paper Pumpkin is a wonderful way to explore your creative side.  Each kit is all inclusive and contains everything you need to complete the projects.
  2. It’s affordable!  The per cost kit is only $22 per month and each kit contains several projects.  March subscribers received 2 stamp set and materials for 12 greeting cards!  And the April kit is all about family and loved ones.
  3. It’s easy!  You can order online.  Each kit is delivered directly to your door (or wherever you receive your mail) and has beautifully illustrated instructions inside.
  4. There’s no obligation!  After you receive your first kit, if you decide that it’s not for you, simply cancel.
  5. It’s flexible!  Life happens.  Sometimes you may not be able to receive a kit or may decide that you want to skip a kit.  No problem!  You choose when you get a kit throughout the year.  To skip a kit, just log on and update your Paper Pumpkin account by the 10th of the month to opt-out of the current month’s delivery.

These are only a few reasons.  The biggest reason is for the JOY.  The joy of creating, either with yourself, or your friends, children or grandchildren and the JOY of sharing kindness.  I’m telling you, it is definitely a GOOD thing!   You should try it!
