Hey, friend

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Garden Impressions Suite, which is located on pages 128-130 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. When I first saw the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, I knew this was a must have! If you haven’t checked this suite out or maybe you missed it, give it a look! If you take a closer look at the DSP from the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper, it almost looks like there’s Sweet Sugarplum in there!!

The card base is Powder Pink cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer from the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” DSP is 4” x 5 ¼”:

For this thinlit from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, I used Melon Mambo cardstock and used some of the Sizzix Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the cardstock before cutting out. Helpful hint-use the Precision Base Plate to cut this out when using the adhesive sheets:

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock. This is then cut out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and use Powder Pink cardstock to cut out the smallest scalloped oval from Layering Ovals Framelits and the flower from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits (I used a small piece of the adhesive sheet on the back of this):

Adhere the base layer to the card base and remove the backing from the adhesive sheet to adhere the cut-out piece on top:

I placed the cardstock flower on a similar piece, used Wink of Stella on this and the roses, and placed the largest pearl from the Pearl Basic Jewels:

The ovals are adhered together and then use dimensionals to adhere to the card front, I also added a piece of Whisper White 1/8” Sheer Ribbon that is tied in a bow:

The inside is a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Melon Mambo ink, the flowers are from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Powder Pink and Melon Mambo inks, and then I adhered the leftover ¾” x 4” DSP along the bottom:

This is such a super cute card and you can easily change up the colors to use a similar piece of DSP! What do you think of this suite??

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
