Good Wednesday! It has been a week today since hubby had total left knee replacement. The week SEEMS to have flown by, but not really.My craft room is upstairs and I keep bringing items down to the main floor to work as I can. And you know what – it ALL has to return to its rightful place SOON – in time for family to arrive Christmas Day. And… I desperately need to wrap presents!!! Does everyone have their wrapping complete but me? πŸ₯΄

Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP is new in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog – and at first I didn’t really like it much. But as I work with it, it’s really growing on me. Today I have combined the Fancy Flora DSP with Something Fancy stamp set & coordinating dies, but also the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this paper reminds me of oils and Monet and this embossing folder just ‘goes’. I’ve also used Natural Finish Ribbon, Opal Rounds, and Sahara Sand ink.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora DSP.1

What I did:

  • Cut a panel of Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP (available Jan 5, 2023) to cover the entire front of an A2 card.
  • Emboss this panel with the Painted Texture 3D EF; adhere panel to a Thick Basic White card base
  • Cut a length of Natural Finish Ribbon, trim ends to your liking, fold over and add to card front with glue dots
  • Stamp sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set with Sahara Sand ink; die cut with coordinating Something Fancy Dies
  • Adhere die cut over the ribbon with dimensionals
  • Add three Opal Rounds and the front is done!

Something Fancy stamp set and Something Fancy Dies – (available Jan 5, 2023). These also coordinate with the Fancy Floral bundle. The sentiments are great for lots of different occasions.

You can see I stamped a sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set – Sahara Sand ink, then added a strip of the Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP to the bottom. For the envelope, more of the same pattern Fancy Flora DSP adhered to flap & trimmed to fit. Voila! Look at some of the papers in this pack and see if you could create something similar – but a masculine card. I think you can!
