Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop February 2021 – Fine Art Floral Framed Easel
- Thank you for joining Kylie and Bruno Bertucci’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop for February 2021!
- Whether you started with my site for Kelley Pitts at CreateWithKelley.com or you started with another demonstrator, you can easily hop to all the other demonstrator sites at the bottom of this post.
- We are so happy that you could join this month’s blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world who are taking part in a training program to help us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.
- We really appreciate your support.
My customers placing orders this month will receive a card like the following as a Thank You!
- Stampin’ Up!®’s incredibly beautiful Fine Art Floral Suite features Designer Series Paper (DSP) showcasing photos of original paintings that were created by a Stampin’ Up! artist!®
- How exciting for the artist to see her art come to life on thousands of handmade cards!
- I just HAD to frame squares of the artwork and hang them on a textured “gallery wall.”
- I popped up the acetate square with foam strips and mounted it to the same size DSP square to get some depth and shadows. Sorry the photograph doesn’t do it justice.
- I used glue dots to attach the gold frame to the painting to complete the “framed gallery art”.
- Then I mounted it to an Easel card base, of course!
- Below is the same card with a Mossy Meadow “wall” to hang on and a decorative strip in Poppy Parade below the greeting. All the other card elements are the same as those in the previous photo.
I carefully selected some of the floral images to diecut, although I hated to waste any of the gorgeous DSP. So I also diecut several squares that I thought would look empty, but “Lo and Behold” when I also diecut the coordinating Golden Garden acetate, it filled in the gaps with gold! How fun! I got about a dozen squares out of a sheet by strategically placing them, but I could have cut more if I’d known how well the gold worked. I’ll give you some cutting tips in the PDF mentioned below.
- Basic White thick card stock – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″; plus scrap for Thank You
- Poppy Parade or Mossy Meadow cardstock – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″; plus scrap for diecut
- Fine Art Floral DSP 2 3/4″ ish square to be diecut
- Golden Garden Designer Series Acetate (DSA) – 2 3/4″ ish square (floral); plus 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip (quatrefoil) to be diecut
- Gold Foil – 3 1/4″ ish to be diecut
