Suite Showcase no.4 - Regency Park

Hello! Welcome back to my blog and the fourth instalment in the Suite Showcase collaboration with Alison at The Inkspirational Crafter.

Today, we're showcasing the Regency Park suite. This suite is gorgeous and includes 2 stamp sets - 1 with dies and 1 with a punch. Both stamp sets feature two step stamping so you can stamp the outline in one colour, and then stamp the leaves and flower inners in a different colour if you want to. 

My first card, I've kept simple using the Petal Park stamp and punch from the suite. So, I stamped the leaves first on a layer of Basic White. I decided to use my Stamparatus to stamp the leaf images. The outline was stamped in Garden Green and then the filler was stamped in Granny Apple Green. I decided to keep the sentiment simple and stamped 'Thanks' from the Sentimental Park set, straight onto the Basic White Layer using my Stamparatus to make sure I got it straight. And, the best thing about using your Stamparatus, you could easily batch make these cards, which is perfect if you have a number of cards to make.

On a piece of scrap, I stamped the flower outline in Sweet Sorbet (full strength) and the filler I stamped off Sweet Sorbet so it was second generation. Then I punched them out. I love how quick and easy a punch is!

Before adhering the flowers to the card, I laid them out where I wanted them, and then used the small leaf stamp to add some extra foliage under them. 

I adhered the flowers to the card using mini dimensionals and glued this to layer of Sweet Sorbet. This was all then added to a Thick Basic White card base and I finished off with a linen thread bow and a combination of iridescent rhinestones and 2022-2024 matte decorative dots. 

For my second card, I used some of them designer series paper (DSP). The colours in this DSP are gorgeous and I really struggled to pick some to start with because they're all just so nice! 

I cut two pieces of DSP to match a basic layer for the card base. Then on both pieces, on the short side, I cut off a strip at 1 1/2". This allows to make 2 cards at the same time. I then laid a strip of the DSP that I trimmed and one of the larger pieces left (approx 2 1/2") onto a basic layer of Basic White ensuring that the DSP butted up against each other. I then laid a strip of Night of Navy ribbon from the suite over the join. Then I went to town on die cutting the little flowers from the Sentimental Park dies out of a range of colours - Mango Melody, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Petal Pink. I also die cut the largest label die with the flower frame in Vellum and then I die cut the label die in Balmy Blue. On the label die, I stamped the sentiment using a combination from the stamp set. This was all layered onto a Mango Melody card base.

I layered the label die into the vellum frame and added some of the die cut flowers around the frame. To finish off, I made a faux bow using the Night of Navy ribbon and wrapped linen thread around this and tied a knot and bow and then tucked this under the sentiment. I completed the card with some iridescent rhinestones.

For my third and final card for today (although I could have kept going), I pulled in a couple of extra items - Framed Florets dies and the new Cane Weave 3D embossing folder.

I decided to use some more of the current In Colours, so I made a card base of Tahitian Tide, with a base layer of Starry Sky. This was embossed using the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder, this is turning out to be a new favourite of mine. The detail is just gorgeous!

From a piece of Basic White, I die cut a couple of the frames from the Framed Florets dies. The largest frame cuts the outer decorative section as well as a more simple layer at the same time. I cut this frame from DSP also, but in the end, I felt it would be too fussy with all the images. I then die cut the smallest frame from these dies in Basic White, which gave me both an outer decorative frame as well as the solid inside. On the small solid piece, I stamped the filler leaves in Granny Apple Green from the Petal Park set, I added the flower fillers also in Sweet Sorbet randomly around the edge of this layer and added the small leaf outline also in Granny Apple Green. On a scrap piece of paper, I stamped the flowers in Starry Sky both full strength and second generation.

I then decided that the middle layer was a bit too white, so I pulled out the hash stamp from the Sentimental Park set, in Tahitian Tide randomly around the edge. I adhered the decorative frame using multipurpose glue and then the second layer was added using dimensionals. The final layer was adhered using multipurpose glue. I then laid the flowers out to decide how I wanted them to look and then adhered them using a combination of glue dots and dimensionals. To finish the card off, I white heat embossed a sentiment onto Tahitian Tide and then trimmed down. I added a linen thread bow and completed the card with some iridescent rhinestones.

I hope you like this card, there are so many possibilities when using just the sentiments from Sentimental Park.
