I’m in front of my computer and my fingers are on the keyboard ready to type words of stamping wisdom.  The problem is, I don’t know what to say!  What do you say about such beautiful art on a card.  I suppose I’ll have to talk about the paper and see where it goes from there.

First, I didn’t paint those flowers.  Second, this is probably the easiest and quickest card I have ever put together.  In my last post featuring the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper, I used a whitewashed background design.  This is one of the floral designs from the same paper pack.  I could go on and on about the stunning floral and on trend designs featured in the new Fine Art Floral Suite, but I won’t have to do that today.  Today it’s okay for me to add Stampin’ Up!’s pictures to this post so you can see every beautiful product in this Suite.

I Put It All Together!

Although I didn’t paint these flowers, I did strategically cut the DSP so it would appear that I either painted or stamped the design. I added the floral layer to a Balmy Blue cardstock layer and attached them to a Night of Navy A-2 card base.

When I thought about adding a sentiment, I just couldn’t create a sentiment banner or layer or punched sentiment tag.  I thought that would take your eye away from the painted flowers.  Embossing was the technique that would work perfectly on this card, so I heat embossed the sentiment in white.

This card needed embellishment but I had to be careful with that.  I wanted the embellishment to be noticed but didn’t want to draw attention away from the patterned paper.  A white embellishment was my first thought.  Then I remembered I had the Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets.  They worked for me. They’re subtle but add that little extra something!  Don’t you agree?

So, get some hand painted patterned paper, cut a few cardstock layers, emboss a sentiment, add a droplet or two and create something pretty!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
