Suite Showcase no.5 - Fancy Flora

Hello and welcome back!

How are you? Can you believe that it's March already?? Roll on some nicer weather.

In this week's Suite Showcase, Alison and I are using the Fancy Flora Suite. I have to say, this is one of my favourites. The suite includes 2 stamp sets and 2 sets of dies. One stamp set is all floral images and the other is sentiments with accompanying label dies.

For my first card, I die cut the main background die that accompanies the Two Tone Flora stamp set. It really speaks for itself. I added a piece of designer series paper (DSP) behind it and kept it simple with a couple of flowers. I adhered it flat to my card base but varied the flowers using a combination of glue and dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I decided to stamp straight onto DSP for a bit of a change. The sentiment was cut out using a die from the label dies from the suite.

For my second card I used a Calypso Coral card base and stamped one of the detail flower stamps in Calypso Coral on the background so it was tone on tone.

I then selected another piece of DSP and layered it on Night of Navy and adhered together with liquid glue. Then I embossed this piece using Painted Texture embossing folder, which lends itself to the DSP really well as its a similar finish. I stuck this flat to my card base.

To complete the look I stamped a range of flowers in varying sizes in Calypso Coral and Orchid Oasis, I added some leaves in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. I added a white heat embossed sentiment on Night of Navy and fussy cut out. The sentiment was pulled from the Dainty Delights stamp set (not part of the suite). Then I completed the card with some embellishments, also found in the suite.

For my third and final card, I die cut the hexagon shape several times from DSP and adhered these using liquid glue to a Basic White base. I then embossed this using the Painted Textures folder and adhered this flat to a layer of Daffodil Delight. I felt the yellow just gave it all a lift. This was then added to an Orchid Oasis card base.

I die cut the largest label and added one of the detail dies. I stamped the sentiment to the right of the label in Orchid Oasis and then stamped some leaves to the left in Soft Succulent. I then layered some flowers in a combination of Daffodil Delight and Fresh Freesia. 

I added some Pool Party ribbon to the card in a faux bow and adhered using some tear and tape. Then I added the sentiment on dimensionals on top of the ribbon and added the flowers around the sentiment. I finished off using some of the embellishments.

I love this suite and the DSP is gorgeous! I hope you like the cards, why not head over to Alison at The Inkspirational Crafter to see what she's been making with the suite.
