Paper Crafting Blog Hop April 2022 - Flowers!

 Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for April 2022 - featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting - FLOWERS!


For my project I made what I think is a beautiful card using the amazing flowers and sentiments from the Art Gallery set in the current annual catalog.

#158201 Art Gallery $22.00*

This is simply a lovely and elegant set - and works with just about any color combination; plus it contains a ton of lovely sentiments. I'm all about scripty fonts in my sentiments - but these are so crisp and clean and stamp perfectly. For my card I used Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral as my main colors.

For my card I added to the set using the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies, Painted Texture 3D embossing folder and a strip of the Waves of the Ocean DSP only available this month and only while supplies last!
#159982   Waves of the Ocean 12x12" DSP   $11.50*

Then I added a small strip of Calypso Coral Cardstock; a small Pale Papaya bow and a couple of the pinkish Polished Dots embellishments from the Jan-June mini.

Of course you can't forget to finish the inside of your card too! The smaller flower from the set is perfect!

I hope you got some inspiration from this card. Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love any comments!

I agree, your card is beautiful and elegant, anyone would love to receive it, especially with the extra stamping on the inside and the envelope.

Such an artistic card, Maureen! The Painted Texture 3D embossing folder gives you a perfect look for the flowers. It all looks hand painted! Truly lovely!

I never think to emboss the DSP - I need to remember that, it looks amazing!

Absolutely brilliant to add the strip of the WAVES DSP on your card. It added to the beauty.
