I have not posted enough about the Symbols of Fortune Suite. It is such a beautiful collection of products. The suite includes a stamp set, coordinating dies, Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP, Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper, Polished Dots and Soft Succulent 1/2" Satin Shimmer Ribbon. So many beautiful products in one suite!
I love the Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP. This paper is gorgeous! The only thing I don't like about this paper is that I have to choose between lovely designs on one side and on the other beautiful gold foil accents. Really though, it is a wonderful dilemma to have. On this card I used 3 of the patterns in the pack. The top, bottom and the flowers were all cut using the DSP. The flowers are on a Soft Succulent label cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Sadly the Stitched So Sweetly dies are being retired. I added 3 Polished Dots to the label and a Soft Succulent ribbon knot.
This is a style of card I make often. I love making cards that show off the beautiful DSP and are just a little bit different. Here are the basics measurements.
- Card Base 4-1/4" x 7-1/4" scored at 1-3/4" and 3" x 4-1/4",
- DSP pattern A 1-1/2" X 4"
- DSP pattern B 2-3/4" x 4"
- Basic White-4" x 5-1/4'
You will also need a piece to connect the top portion to the bottom.
IF you agree that this suite of products are fabulous then let me tell you about the Creativity Abounds Symbols of Fortune Stamp Camp.
The Creativity Abounds team is an international team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators. We have a monthly blog hop and a quarterly stamp camp. The next camp is all about the Symbols of Fortune Suite. We created a tutorial bundle with 12 projects, written tutorials and a video. We provide all the pieces of cardstock cut and scored so you can complete the tutorial projects. You will need to cut DSP and Mother of Pearl pieces. On April 29th and 30th there will be a series of Facebook Lives and videos featuring different projects so you will receive even more new ideas on ways to use this suite. Pretty incredible! If this sounds like fun, all you need to do to register is purchase the Symbols of Fortune Suite from my online store before April 15th. Use the Host Code TBSHB94M. I will cut and prepare a kit for you to complete the projects in the tutorial bundle. You will need to use your own DSP and Mother of Pearl papers, adhesive and inks. If you already own the Symbols of Fortune Suite but want to participate in the camp, you can place an order of $82.75 or more using the Host Code. Remember that you will need the suite to complete the tutorial projects.
Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions about the camp please contact me at [email protected] and I would be happy to help,
Place a $50 order through my online store and receive this bundle (12 tutorials!!) as a thank you. You can also purchase the tutorial bundle for $15.00. Please contact me ([email protected]) if you would like to purchase the tutorial.
