Good Sunday morning everyone! Who can tell me what happens just one week from today? 🎄That’s a hint. Yay! Christmas! A time for celebrating Christ’s birth. A time for sharing our love for one another. Rejoice!

Today I’m sharing a sneaky peek of new products from the Jan-Apri 2023 Mini Catalog. This is such a sweet, soft all occasion card with an absolutely beautiful die as the focus. But in this sneaky peek I will show you the other dies and the stamps in this set as well as the new DSP that coordinates with it. Let’s look at the card first.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Dies

Is this gorgeousness or what?! It’s die cut with a single die with Thick Basic White card stock. I like to use the Thick paper for a die cut like this as it gives it more strength. You can see I added a Linen bow with a glue dot after stamping the sentiment (Inspired Thoughts stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink. Then with my paper snips I created the end and attached the stamped strip with dimensionals. Done!

Here’s the coordinating die.

It looks as though I didn’t clean all the paper out of the die cut. Yep – I’ll have to do that prior to using it again. This decorated card front is 4 1/8 x 5 1/2. You could make it 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 prior to running it through the die cutter. And I layered this on coordinating Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP. Both were attached to the card base of Blushing Bride 4 1/45 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. Here’s a look at the DSP. Keep in mind it looks similar to oil paints, a Monet perhaps.

The colors in the DSP are Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, Soft Succulent.

Interestingly, my card uses Blushing Bride, Petal Pink and Merry Merlot + Pear Pizzazz for the green. And it works! Let’s look more closely at the stamp set and the other dies. I haven’t used other dies on this card – but will soon use in the future. :O)

The closest photo is those very stamps, stamped on paper to dimply ‘see’ what they look like and how they coordinate with one another. I’ve tried to put stamp them together with the stamps that coordinate. it isn’t perfect, but you can easily see how they work.

In this photo at left you see the coordinating floral and leaf dies. For each of the individual solid floral stamps, there is a coordinating die – and same is true for the leaves: a leaf spray + the two-leaf stamp.

Stampin' Up! Two-Tone Flora Bundle, inside

The large flower is stamped in Blushing bride and Merry Merlot for the detail. The detail doesn’t show very well :O( However, the two other flowers are stamped in Petal Pink with Merry Merlot for the detail and you can see how well that works. The same two-leaf stamp is used to stamp around the flowers with Pear Pizzazz ink. This was done on Basic White, then adhered to the inside of the card.

The sentiment on both the front and inside are stamped in Blushing Bride ink and come from Inspiring Thoughts stamp set.

The envelope got more of the very same pattern of Fancy Flora DSP trimmed to fit after adhering in place to the flap. The flower ‘burst’ is stamped in Petal Pink with Merry Merlot for detail. And here’s tip: stamp the more solid stamp as step 1, step 2 is the detail.
