Variations on Botanical Bloom

Can I just say that I love the bundles offered in the Occasions catalog this year.  I love them all, but there is one I’ve reached for repeatedly in the month I’ve had it in my craft room and that is the Botanical Gardens Suite of products.  Never before have I known Stampin up to offer a bundle (15% savings) on three items but this time they did.  Dies, Stamp set and Designer Series Paper.  Add ahesives and you’re good to go.  Best of all, it qualifies for a free Sale-a-bration item because the bundle is $51.75.  AND, there are Free Sale-a-bration items that even coordinate with this bundle.  WIN-WIN-WIN.

My cards today show these products as well as the versatility of the dies.  Enjoy.

This first sample is a softer subtle take using the dies paired with Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.
I used Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow for the flower and fern.  I also used both sides of the DSP for the background.

I cased this card from the Sale-a-bration flyer showing off the Botanical dies and paper as well as the SAB item Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.

I used the Banner framelits to crop the banner stamped with one of the sentiments from One Big Meaning, my very favorite Thank You Stamp Set.

  1. Gorgeous cards, Lynn. I love how you’ve cropped the long, thin vine from the patterned paper. This bundle is terrific, and you’ve showcased it perfectly.

  2. Both of these are very pretty! I am officially convinced I need to get this set.

  3. By far, my most favorite item in this catalog! I can’t get enough of it either and to have all three items in a bundle was WAY cool! I love your cards today; so bright and cheerful. I have also used the negative portion of the die and it’s just as nice as the positive cut out. Thanks for the inspiration….I had not thought of using dsp, but it’s perfect! Hugs
