Fitting Florets Blog Hop

I'm excited to be sharing the new Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Suite of products and hopping along with Demonstrators from around the world!  This suite is amazing and just launched on November 1st.  The bundle will carry over in to the upcoming Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue, but the Designer Series Paper, Embellishments and Framed & Festive Stamp Set are only available while supplies last!

I created this card on my recent Sketch Challenge.  Here's the sketch I used.  I love the fact that Stampin' Up! has new Ovals!  So fun to use!

I love how this card turned out in Evening Evergreen and Gold.  Once I started with the gold, I couldn't stop!  Never too much gold (in my opinion!).


  1. Cut Evening Evergreen 4 1/4"x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline to form card base.
  2. Cut Evening Evergreen 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Oval shape with hearts in Evening Evergreen cardstock
  4. Emboss using Fern 3D Embossing Folder
  5. Cut Distressed Gold Specialty Paper 3 3/4" x 4 1/2" and adhere behind Oval
  6. Adhere to card base
  7. Cut out Oval with slits from Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.  
  8. Adhere outside ring to card base
  9. Stamp garland image and sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Versamark
  10. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat to melt
  11. Cut out garland using Die
  12. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  13. Cut out sentiment using Paper Snips
  14. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  15. Adhere embellishments
  16. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  17. Stamp garland image on bottom using Evening Evergreen ink
  18. Adhere to inside of card.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.  If you love this suite, I suggest you order quickly as some of the products (Designer Series Paper, Embellishments and Framed & Festive Stampset are only available while supplies last).  

The Your Creativity Awaits Kit features this suite this month.  Order the kit and add on the entire suite and you'll get a Bonus make and take kit with 3 cards and and a box!  More details below.
