Today’s post is a real ingenious and clever gift card holder that my friend and customer Sheri made me for my birthday. It is made from a Stampin Up Treat Bagthat was folded to create a double pocket holder- One for the gift card and the other for the message. Sheri used my favorite paper(Botanical Garden DSP) and the Botanical Builder Framelits that are no longer available. Loved it and the gift card was a real treat!

I wanted to make a card to showcase all the new In colors (2017-2019) from Stampin Up: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide. I used the now retired Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits to make a bunch of flowers and leaves. I used the fabulous new Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and added 2 pieces of 5/8 inch Burlap ribbon #141487 to anchor the flowers to. The sentiment is from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set to create this bright and beautiful card.
Today’s card is all about the Affectionately Yours DSP #141632. I just cut 1″ strips of several of the different patterns of paper. Good thing is they all match and work well together because that is how Stampin Up designs their DSP collections. I added a piece of 5/8″ burlap ribbon to add texture. I then added a block with a flower cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 and the sentiment from the now retired Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
The base of todays card is extured with the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder#141481. For the focal piece, Cammie added her inking techniques- direct to paper,brayering and sponging to create the moon and its reflection in the water. To add even more interest, Cammie added a bordered edge cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 from Stampin Up.
From time to time I like to do a minimal stamping card and feature other great products from Stampin Up. So today’s card features the Affectionately Yours DSP from Stampin Up. I used the Stampin Up Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 for cutting the flowers and the Stampin Up Rose Garden Thinlits #140619 for the leaves.
I made this card before the all new Detailed Floral Thinlits came out. It would have been much easier then the way I did mine using the Bloomin Heart Thinlits #140621. To create the lacy background, I cut 4 hearts from the Bloomin Heart Thinlits and then overlayed them on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using the now retired Perfect Pennant stampset and mounted it on Wisteria cardstock. I finished by adding a bouquet of flowers cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 and the coordinating Botanical Blooms #140757 stamp set.
I love everything about today’s post. The natural color scheme that Cammoie used for this card is on trend and lends itself perfectly with the beautiful Botanical Blooms #140757 stamp set and the coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits #140625. I am so happy Stampin Up carried over both of these items in the all new 2016-2017 annual catalog.
