IDEAS BLOG HOP - Fancy Flora - It's So Suite of You!

Blog_Hop_BannerHi there

I'm back with the IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') team this month to share more fabulous projects. We are a group of international demonstrators who create a Tutorial Bundle each month to give you, our customers and readers a heap of inspiration for your crafting.

If you've come from looking at Sara's sweet projects, then welcome!  If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the IDEAS Team by clicking on the NEXT button at the bottom of the post. 


This month we are showcasing the wonderful coordination in a suite of products. A suite brings together a group of coordinating products to provide everything you need to create lovely projects. To make it super easy, you can order all the products with a single item number!

We have a super huge 90-page bundle this month with 15 tutorials using suites from the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue and 2023 January-April Mini Catalogue. Every tutorial includes at least 2 projects with lots of 3D projects including gift packaging, treat packaging, fancy fold cards and home décor.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Suite | Gift Bag & Card Set | Tutorial Available | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I’ve chosen the Fancy Flora Suite for my projects and created a generously-sized gift bag and coordinating gate-fold card. The bag (excluding the handle) measures 4 5/8” x 7 1/4” x 1 1/2” (11.8cm x 18.4cm x 3.8cm) and would be perfect for a scarf, body products, treats, full sized cards and envelopes and so much more. The coordinating gate-fold card would also be perfect for engagement and wedding occasions.  You can see more photos by clicking on the Etsy link below.

CASE-ing the Catty - Country Floral Lane Suite

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week!  Can you believe it is the last week of January already! 

If you've come from visiting  Rebecca, then welcome!  If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 


This week we are CASE-ing a project from the Country Floral Lane Suite on pages 8-11 of the 2023 January-April Mini Catalogue. I love the pretty pastels in both the Country Gingham and Country Floral Lane paper packs.

I've selected the project in the photo above for my inspiration this week. I like the use of the negative for the LOVE and making it the focal point of the card. 

Stampin' Up! Country Floral Lane Suite & Alphabet a la Mode Dies | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I started with a small panel of Balmy Blue card stock and added Foam Adhesive Sheet to the back. The letters from the Alphabet À La Mode Dies were positioned and held in place with sticky note before die cutting.  You get two of the 'L' in the set of dies which is really helpful. In a stroke of luck, the die cut panel was the perfect size to fit evenly on the red heart design from the Country Floral Lane DSP. I liked the look of the hearts framing the greeting, so I decided to add a piece of Sweet Sorbet card stock to the back of the die cut panel.

The heart was fussy cut from the Country Floral Lane DSP after adding a scrap of Basic White to the back to give it more body. I popped up the heart and slipped the fussy cut leaves underneath. The 'friend' sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set was stamped in black, fussy cut and popped up over the heart and I finished with a small bow in white Baker's Twine.  I added a white border to the heart panel and then adhered it to the card base that I had covered with the blue plaid design from the Country Gingham DSP. A trio of gold sequins from the Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins were the finishing touch.


For the inside, I have a Balmy Blue mat for the writing panel and I added a strip of the heart DSP down the right side.  I fussy cut the sweet blue bike from the Country Floral Lane DSP and added in the corner.
