I have finally had a chance to play around with some of my new stamps and dies. Although the Ornate Garden Suite has been out since May as part of a special early release from the new 2020-2022 Annual catalog, I was too busy having fun with some of the stamp sets that were retiring. So I am a little behind everyone else in oohing and aahhing over the beautiful papers like this one.
If you are a daisy (and flower) lover, then you will be head over heels for the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper. The reverse side of several of the sheets are embossed with gold, giving the paper a very elegant look.
With daisies on the Designer Series Paper, it was almost a no brainer to add a few daisies punched with the Medium Daisy Punch. I wanted to give them a little texture too…so I embossed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder.
And you might have noticed that the leaves behind the daisy are also embossed. I used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. It’s a subtle texture, but I think it helps keep the leaves from looking “flat”.
I am also loving the Ornate Frame Dies. They take some patience to die cut as there is a lot of delicate scrollwork so lots of little holes! I’ve found that if I run the dies though my die cutting machine, two or three times, then it cuts better and when I lift off the die, all the little “hole” pieces easily come out.
I discovered that the smallest of the Rectangle Stitched Dies fits perfectly in the center of the 2nd smallest Ornate Frames Dies! How great is that!?
