As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (discount shopper or business) you get to order from the upcoming catalog a month in advance. It’s so exciting to see the new things and be able to try them out early. Another perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is being part of a team to network, share ideas and encourage each other in something you all love to do. My team gets together monthly and today was the day! Several team members presented card tutorials and presentations (all were wonderful!) for which we could follow along. I loved this card that Amy Koenders presented, however, I did not have the stamp set. I thought maybe you would like to see the results and thoughts that went behind choosing alternatives for the design. (I”m a little embarrassed to place my card next to Amy’s beautiful one, but here goes).
Both of these cards are made with new sets in the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. I decided to stick with the same color scheme Amy used with the red/pink and greens. The new Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper fit the bill with Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive. Amy’s colors are Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue.
For the design I exchanged medium flowers for the strawberry focal images (Sweet Strawberry Bundle) and coordinating the smaller matching floral accents. I changed up the greeting to use one included in the same Art Gallery stamp set with a coordinating die from the Floral Gallery Dies. The greenery in the background is a larger stamp with 3 flowers on top, but I only inked the “berries” and stamped it 3 times. Two of the flowers and the sentiment are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals accented with Poppy Parade All The Trimmings Embellishments (on sale 50% off – $4 on Dec 8th while supplies last). The Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper on Amy’s card is FREE with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration, January 5th – February 28, 2021.
