Fine Art Floral Mini Slimline Set

Stampin Up Fine Art Floral Mini Slimline Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Today I’m continuing my quest to find ways to create with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. As I mentioned before, this paper collection initially intimidated me.  I felt that it was a bit too “artsy” for me.  But I actually found myself truly enjoying creating with it.  So I created a set of (my favorite) mini slimline cards using this pretty pattern from the DSP.

Materials & Measurements

  • Basic White Thick cardstock:  6″ x 7″, scored at 3 1/2″
  • Basic Black cardstock:  5 7/8″ x 3 3/8″, 3 1/8″ x 1/8″ (cut 2)
  • Colored cardstock: 5 3/4″ x 3 1/4″, 3 1/8″ x 1/2″
  • Fine Art Floral DSP: 5 5/8″ x 3 1/8″

Details

  • Layer the Basic Black, colored cardstock & DSP to the card base.
  • When choosing the colored cardstock colors, I tried to pick a color that was a little more pronounced in the DSP cut.  The cardstock colors are listed under each card.

  • I added the colored cardstock strip to the center and the thin Basic Black strips to either side.

Balmy Blue

  • Using the (retired) Punch Party stamp set, I stamped the swirly frame on white cardstock and the sentiment on Basic Black cardstock.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Note: the sentiment on the card above is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.
  • Both are punched using the Double Oval punch.

 I created a custom envelope from 32lb paper which is a little heavier than regular computer paper and has a smoother finish.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’re enjoying this first day of summer.  I’ll be back with Karen Hallam on Wednesday for another cross country CASEing adventure…see you then!

Take care,

Rosanne

  1. Rosanne, these slimline cards are so pretty. Thanks for the instructions. Enjoy your week!

  2. These are the prettiest cards I’ve seen with that DSP! Nice job! Love them!

    Oh la la so pretty. I have been hoarding my pack of paper but maybe this will be a good project to CASE. Is there any special way to cut so you get the most out of a sheet of paper? Now I am wishing I had the Punch Party stamp set. Love these cards and your envelopes.

    • Thank you, Chris! I didn’t have a specific plan when cutting them but I did try to coordinate the card stock color to a color that was a little more pronounced in each piece. I don’t really think it mattered that much in the end, though. I’ve decided that I need to start using my DSP or stop buying it!!! Have a great day!

  4. Me too, that’s why I find your design so wonderful! It works very well! 🙂
