And with great fanfare, it is the Serene Garden Stamp Set!
It is that exciting time of the year when a new Stampin’ Up! catalogue is released – so many new products to experiment with. The new catalogue has certainly brought my creative juices to the fore just in time for the June Global Stampers Blog Hop. The challenge this month was to use my favourite product from the new 2018-19 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Are you kidding? How can I pick one single favourite product from a catalogue that has 79 new stamps, 16 new Designer Series Papers, 14 new suites, 26 new Framelits, 7 new embossing folders, 6 new punches, 32 new ribbons, a complete colour revamp and 476 inspirational samples? But I did it eventually and selected the Serene Garden Stamp Set and the coordinating Garden Scene Framelits Dies. As it is a bundle, it is also 10% off if purchased as part of a bundle.
Don’t forget to check out the projects by the other Global Stampers Demonstrators (see below).
Serene Garden Stamp Set and Garden Scene Framelits Dies
This bundle is really interesting as the images are a little bit of Art Deco, whilst the Framelits Dies, both emboss and cut. I love the flexibility of this set. I used the new Big Shot accessory, the Big Shot Embossing Mat to achieve the embossed background. There is a clear difference between embossing folders and using the Framelits to emboss. When you emboss using the Framelits the depth of the embossing is quite subtle but the impressions are so sharp when using the framelits.
In reality, this card isn’t difficult and it is a fun card to create. It includes some simple colouring using Stampin’ Blends (Rich Razzleberry, the retired Pink Pirouette and Old Olive), some background embossing (which I will explain in further detail below), some simple die-cutting and stamping. The bird and the flowers have been die-cut, coloured and then some Wink of Stella was applied. Each image was stamped in Memento Black, with the sentiment (Painted Glass Stamp Set) stamped in Rich Razzleberry. The background was embossed using the Garden Scene Framelits Dies and the Big Shot Embossing Mat. To achieve the background embossed look, I moved the framelits around the cardstock.
The Painted Glass Stamp Set is so easily matched with the Serene Garden Stamp Set because it contains some similar imagery.
The inside of the card and the envelope was simply stamped in Black Memento.
