Stampin' Up! So Sentimental Meets Ornate Garden DSP

TGIF, peeps! 

My card features a new product that will be featured in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog in June. The Ornate Garden Suite is available to demonstrators to order right now. It will be available to customers as an early release April 1, 2020.  I am using the Ornate Garden DSP today.

Here is my card front. It is from another kit I had in my stash. I swapped out the retired DSP in the kit and replaced it with the Ornate Garden DSP. This new DSP shouts "spring". Sistah Darlene has a spring theme challenge going on over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

My design was inspired by The Paper Players: PP483. It's a sketch from Claire Broadwater.

In the February 2018 kit was a piece of ribbon and the pre-cut, pre-stamped rectangle. Here's how the it turned out back then.

and again now...

What a difference a change in design makes!

As You See It has a new challenge...
No photo description available.

Die cut - check
Flowers - check
Ribbon - check
Something Shiny - check
Patterned Paper - check

The die is from the retired Celebrate You set. The flowers and patterned paper are, as I mentioned, from the upcoming Ornate Garden Suite, the glimmer paper of the "You" is shiny, and the ribbon is non-SU.

The inside is quite simple. I stamped the sentiment from So Sentimental in Terracotta Tile. I had a piece of DSP left over so I adhered it to the bottom.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you'll be enjoying your weekend.


  1. What a fun spring card, Karen! Love that you die cut the sentiment and used the negative space - cool design element, for sure! Thanks so much for sharing it with us over at The Paper Players this week! :)

    1. Thank you, Mary, for commenting on behalf of The Paper Players.

  2. Very pretty Karen! Love that designer paper. :)

  3. Karen, this is so pretty! I love the gorgeous DSP and the negative space sentiment! It adds so much dimension! So happy you joined my sketch challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  4. What a beautiful springtime creation! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Sisterhood of Crafters challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

    Please stop in for a visit!

  5. Your design shows off the paper well. I like the way you've used negative space for the die cut word too - it's just a bit different and give a real sense of depth. Thanks for playing along with us at AYSI again, Karen. It's always nice to see what you've been making.

    1. Thank you so much, Jan, for taking the time to stop by on behalf of AYSI. I always enjoy seeing what you have made as well.

  6. Karen, I love the balanced design of your card, both with the placement of the elements and the colours you've chosen. It's very eye-pleasing. It's not always easy to combine two floral patterns, but you've done it really successfully! Thanks for playing along with As You See It Challenges!

  7. Karen your layers are lovely and the sentiment diecut into the panel looks really great and adds a nice detail. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It and The Paper Players!
