Botanical Gardens Galore for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

NEW Blog Hop Header
As you may be able to tell from my last few posts, I am crazy about the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the Botanical Gardens DSP from Stampin’ Up!  My card share today features these gorgeous flowers once again, but this time with a different color palette.  If you would like to see one of my other creations with this set, click here.

Here’s the sketch for today’s challenge.

03032016 Sketch Challenge

I just love how this card came together.  The sketch provided the perfect empty space to fill with a beautiful array of flowers.  I also love how the wink of stella provides a little extra sparkle on the Cajun Craze flowers. It is really pretty in person, but I just couldn’t quite capture it on film.

Card Recipe and Tips:

Card Base: Hello Honey 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″

Layers: Basic Black 4″ x 5-1/4″, Botanical Gardens DSP 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″

Art Piece: Botanical Gardens DSP (Hello Honey Mat), Whisper White – Labels Collection Framelits (4th from the center)

  • To create a thinner mat, I used a pencil to trace the outside edge of the labels collection framelit (4th from the center).  Then I cut it out with scissors.
  • I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw faux stitching along the outside edge of my white die cut panel.
  • I sponged all my flowers with Cajun Craze to give them a little extra interest.
  • I added Gold Wink of Stella to the Cajun Craze Flowers to give them a little sparkle.
  • Don’t forget to finish the inside of your card for an extra special touch.

  1. I LOVE how this came together too—Thank you so much for the inspiration–I feel a very definite card-lift coming on! Thank you, such a beautiful way to use the flowers and the pretty cuts from that Botanical Blooms set.


  2. wow Heather I knew this was yours as soon as it hit my inbox, you have such a way with your cards, so artistically laid out, absolutely stunning


  3. Truly stunning, and I agree, it is hard to get away from using this set of stamps, dies and DSP. You have the touch for making outstanding cards-if it is any prettier in person, it has to be incredible! Love your work.
