Framed Florets Birthday
October 19, 2022
It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a super fun color challenge.
You know I love a Black, White, Gray with a pop of color palette. I chose for my two colors Poppy Parade and Old Olive.
Are you wondering where that sentiment and images are from? They are part of an early release that will be available for purchase in November. It is the Framed Florets bundle. This bundle will also be in the upcoming 2023 January-June Mini Catalog. In November there will additional items available which make up the Fitting Florets Collection. I will share more about the whole collection soon.
The flowers from the Framed Florets stamp set were colored using Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin' Blends and cut using the Framed Florets dies. Did you notice? The dies are named the same as the stamp set! I am so happy about this change. No more having to remember the name of the stamp set and also the name of the coordinating dies.
The oval frame (cut using the Framed Florets dies) has embossed details around the edge. So cool! There also is another oval frame in the die set that is a little more ornate and I can see a lot of layering of ovals on my future cards.
- Basic Black card base is 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2".
- Basic White layer is 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".
- Metallic & Shimmer Specialty Paper is 4" x 5-1/4".
This is the first time I am using the Metallic & Shimmer Specialty Paper. Isn't it beautiful? I am looking forward to using the other colors in the pack, Evening Evergreen and Cajun Craze/Pumpkin Pie.
Inside I added a strip of the Metallic & Shimmer Specialty Paper and another bloom from the Framed Florets set. If you would like to learn how to get the Framed Florets bundle and the rest of the Fitting Florets suite early, please contact me and we can chat about the different options available to you.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what colors the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team chose for this week's challenge,
