I have such mixed feelings when catalogs are retiring.  I am excited to see what the new catalog brings.  But at the same time sad to see some of my favorites going away.  So I am going to share some of my favorites in the coming couple of weeks.

Today’s card features the Wrapped Bouquet Bundle from the Mini Catalog.  I love the matching dies and especially the folded newspaper to hold the bouquet.   Here is my card.


Stampin' Up!, Wrapped Bouquet, Fine Art Floral, Jackie Beers


I paired the Wrapped Bouquet with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.  I chose all of the colors based on the DSP, as usual!

The bouquet is stamped using Old Olive Ink.  I made that choice since the main leaves of the stamp are solid.  I then colored the bouquet flowers with Stampin’ Blends.  The newspaper is stamped using Smoky Slate Ink for a faded look.  It is then die cut using the matchiing dies.  The newspaper die has score lines included in the die cut for ease and a perfect fold.

The Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  And it has so much detail.  It looks like if you touch it, it will feel like an oil painting.  The texture it gives is amazing.  The piece I chose to use has just a few flowers and the great textured background.

The only added touches I made were to add some Wink of Stella to the flowers.  And I added a couple of pearls to the larger ones.  I debated on a sentiment, but finally decided to just let the paper and stamped bouquet be the card.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope your day is a good one.
