Hello stamping friends. It's so good to have you here. Thanks so much for stopping by! Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. We are showcasing for you the beautiful and oh so stunning Flowers for Every Season Suite from the 2020 - 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you weren't sure about this suite you will be after you see all the amazing projects from the rest of the team.

The Flower for Every Season Suite is jammed packed full of amazing new products. And as the name suggest full of pretty, pretty flowers.

Flower stamps and floral patterned paper are some of the most loved and well used craft products. They’re great for all-occasion handmade cards and projects. The Flowers for Every Season Suite features beautiful flowers representing each of the four seasons, making it an excellent choice for all-year projects. 

Products in this suite include - 

The product colours focus on the new 2020 - 2022 In Colors -  Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight as well as Poppy Parade and Whisper White to accent the gorgeous In Colors.

I've got three cards for you today one with Jars of Flowers Bundle, one
with Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle and then one mixing the Bundles together.

My first card uses the Flowers for Every Season DSP on Basic Black Cardstock for a bright and gorgeous layer. How gorgeous is the Basic Black with the Bumblebee? They are so fabulous together! To give the DSP some more texture I embossed it first with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Embossing the DSP adds another layer without really adding another layer. It turns the DSP into something extra.

I made a Basic Black frame by cutting a rectangle with my Paper trimmer and then using the trimmer again to carefully cut out the inside. I die cut some of the sunflowers and placed them under the frame to overlay on the DSP. Finish the card off with some Vellum, some of the sunflowers from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, some Linen Thread and some Bumblebee In Color Ribbon.

My next card again starts with the Basic Black and then another pattern of the Flowers for Every Season DSP. I felt the DSP was too busy with the coloured stamped image so I added a piece of Vellum over the DSP to soften the look. This tones down the print, but still lets some of the colour of the DSP to show through.

I stamped the jar and flowers on to so Shimmery White Cardstock and then watercoloured the image using Magenta Madness, Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade and Pool Party. Finish the card off with some Linen Thread, an Embossed Sentiment , Magenta Madness In Color Ribbon and some Magenta Madness Enamel Dots.

The last card uses another of the pattern from the DSP again embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. This card I've created a 'border' using one of the stamps from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set. This was done by using the Masking Technique. I stamped the first image on the cardstock and then stamped the image again on a Post it Note, fussy cut the Post It Note and then overlaid it over the first stamped image on the cardstock. While the Post It Note over the first stamped image, you stamp the next image to make it look like they are overlapping with out the image lines covering themselves. This 'masking' makes the image look like its one not serveral images repeately stamped over each other. How fun does the 'border' look?

I've watercoloured the stamped images using Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider. Over the images I've splattered some Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then finished the card off with Line Thread, Misty Moonlight In Color Ribbon, Misty Moonlight Enamel Dots. All these elements together make for a gorgeous creation.

I do hope that I've given you some inspiration with the Flowers for Every Season Suite. I know that when you start creating with it you will love it just as much as I do. It's just stunning!

  5. I love that the artisan design team shares their projects with us as they have such wonderful talents for creativity! As always, today's projects by all of the designers are so inspiring and I love to case them. However, it is too bad that some of the designers' blogs do not allow us to copy any of their designs so they are not conducive to being cased. Thanks team members for allowing to case your lovely projects!

  6. Three magnificent projects! I like the way you use black to pop out the other colours. And isn't that Subtle folder indispensable?

  7. Your cards are so so so pretty Rochelle! Love the pop of black that makes the colors stand out even more.
