I think I am in love with the new Paper Florist Dies from Stampin’ Up! and just love how all of the different elements and flowers can be used individually or combined to make small or gigantic flowers! I have opted for the latter on this easel card, making the one big flower a real focus point.
To see these dies on the Stampin’ Up! website, please visit by using the button below.
I have used four colours for this card, the new Lemon Lolly and Bubble Bath, the returning Lemon Lime Twist and the continuing Balmy Blue. I think they work so well together for a really fresh and light look to this card. The outer border die is from the Darling Details dies – isn’t it pretty – and I have also brought in the wonderful Petal Park stamp set and punch bundle for a few extra flowers.
I really like combining my flower sets and think it is something we could definitely do more of. The stitched leaves in the paper florist dies from Stampin’ Up! are some of my favourite leaves, and they look wonderful cut from velum too, to add some interest.
I cut six of the largest petals and sponged some blue ink on the centres, before assembling onto a circle punched from white card. Creating the flower this way allows you to make it much bigger than if you were to glue the petals on to each other, and the centre parts cover up any mess and gaps that are created by doing it this way.
I decided that this card would look great as an easel card, and really loved the look of it standing up above the sentiment, on a Bubble Bath card base. It’s quite hard to photograph an easel card, but I hope that you can see it from this picture.
If you would like to see me make this flower using the Paper Florist Dies from Stampin’ Up! you can check out one of my YouTube videos by clicking on the thumbnail below- though you’ll want to skip ahead a bit, unless you want to see me making the box too, of course. If you forward to minute 42 you can see me cut and assemble a similar large flower.
I think that’s all from me for today, but I have got lots of ideas in my head for home decor projects using the Paper Florist dies from Stampin’ Up! so keep your eyes peeled for more blog posts in the future.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and until next time, Happy Stamping! xx
