Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Botanical Gardens DSP

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Leah’s blog.



I took inspiration for this card from the sketch at CASE This Sketch this week (see below).

Here are the essentials.....


  • DSP is Botanical Gardens from the new Occasions catalogue. I love this print of mint flowers. 
  • I used a retired edgelit die cut to give me the curve, only because I can’t cut with scissors artistically. 
  • The DSP panel (prior to slicing in half) is about 4 cms shorter than the base card and 1/2 cm narrower. How short your floating DSP panel is really depends on how much space your sentiment needs in the middle so experiment with scrap paper first. :)
  • To float the DSP over the card....you may use dimensionals BUT...you will need a LOT to create a sturdy layer so what I did was this....you know the cardboard backing that comes with the glimmer paper and foil papers?....well I cut that to the same size as my DSP and stuck that on with Fast Fuse Adhesive.....it is sturdy and won’t bend and gives a lovely appearance that the DSP is floating over the card. 
  • I used the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies for my flower. Mossy Meadow for the leaves (rule of 3 people!), Rose Red for the flower (sponged around the edges and curled). 
  • The middle of my flower is the Crushed Curry paper from the Cotton Paper Assortment (Annual catalogue). It looks AMAZING on flowers. I cut two of the same framelit and layered them. 
  • The final finishes to the flower are some Wink of Stella (Clear) on the Rose Red leaves and a Mint Macaron flower from the In Color Blossom Accents pack. 
  • Glue Dots hold the layers of the flower together. 
  • The sentiment is from Build A Birthday. Unless you already have a curved sentiment stamp, reach for a photopolymer greeting stamp.....curve it onto your acrylic block....stamp. Voila - you have a curved sentiment! 
  • Important...stamp your greeting BEFORE you adhere your floating DSP...you may want to put some pencil guide marks in first. 
  • Envelope - created using the Envelope Punch Board and the In Color Envelope Paper. I made the envelope slightly bigger than normal to allow for the leaves off the side of the card. I stamped this with the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamps from the Occasions catalogue. 

Here is our colour palette:
