Beautiful AND Easy Cards? Yes, Please!

With the lovely new set of Designer Series Papers called Fancy Flora by Stampin’ Up!, creating BOTH gorgeous AND easy cards happens naturally. Here are some projects I made recently. What do you think?

All the cards are based on the same measurements. All you have to do is change the colors and the sentiment, and you’ve got beautiful cards for any occasion.


  • Card Base: 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Layer 2 (colored cardstock): 5 1/4″ by 4″
  • Designer Series Paper layer: 5 1/8″ by 3 7/8″.

You can then choose to either stamp your sentiment right on the Designer Series Paper layer, or add a sentiment layer of your own.

The Fancy Flora Designer Series Papers are some of the most striking that I have seen in a long time! The colors are rich, and the texturing makes the papers feel three dimensional.

I hope you enjoyed my cards. All the products used to create these three cards are found below.

It’s Sale-A-Bration Time– that one time a year when we can earn free gifts with purchases from our annual and mini catalog.

A few things to remember:

  1. When you are ordering, you may order from the big Annual Catalog, OR the new Mini Catalog. Your total purchase (before tax and shipping) is what earns you free Sale-A-Bration gifts.
  2. Be sure to watch your shopping totals so you do not leave yourself short of earning Sale-A-Bration products. Notice in the Sale-A-Bration brochure that some products are FREE with a $50 purchase, and some are FREE with a $100 purchase.
  3. Pay close attention and double check when listing your item numbers for sets and bundles in spring mini. Several sets/bundles have TWO item numbers so you can choose cling (C) or photopolymer (P) when ordering. Ex- page 21 Fragrant Flowers set and bundle. Same price but different item numbers, depending on type of stamps you want.
  4. Be sure to use the Host Code below for an addition free bonus from me!
  5. This is the ONLY Sale-A-Bration for the year — January and February. There will no longer be an additional Sale-A-Bration later in the summer.
  6. If you have ANY questions, please let me know BEFORE pressing the final ORDER button. I can help you! If you would like me to order for you, I can do that as well!
  7. Remember, any products you see online or in either catalog count toward your Sale-A-Bration totals, as long as they are all in the same order: annual catalog, mini catalog & clearance rack!
