Flowering Zinnias Suite Collection

Hello there... I have another share using the Online Exclusive Product Suite called "Flowering Zinnias".  Love, love, love this suite collection.  

Now, I was not going to post this one because I actually made it 2 months ago!  And since then, the New 2024-2025 Catalog went live which means we had to say good bye to some products.  Can you guess what item I used that is no longer available?  Keep reading to find out and what I recommend to use in its place.

I have used all items from this suite collection:  stamps, dies, designer series paper, embossing folder and sequins.  But my favorite part it the added bonus of coordination Berry Burst Glimmer Specialty paper (comes in a pack with two other colors).  I used the glimmer paper to mat the piece of DSP, adding an extra little sparkle.  

*The zinnia flower is a piece of designer paper!  Yep... there are beautiful patterns and florals on the DSP that you can fussy cute fairly easily to use as your focal point. 

Let's not forget the inside....

#stampwithlisabrown #floweringzinniaDSP

Use the edges of your designer series paper to add some life to the inside of your card!  Just because its not a whole image, in this case a zinnia flower, USE THOSE EDGES!

So, are you still asking what is the retired product on this card?  If you said the Handmade Tag punch, you are correct!  

My suggestion:  replace the tag punch with the Heartfelt Hexagon punch.  I added that to my supply list below!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card.

Pink Zinnias Split Opening

Welcome back to my blog, where I love to share my projects, events and news updates regarding Stampin' Up!

Today I'm sharing a project I'm call the the Pink Zinnias Split Opening card.  If you have not seen the Flowering Zinnia Suite Collection yet, you can check it out in my online store Here.  

You can also see my two other projects I have posted:  Gratitude card and Zinnias with Sparkle

So this card is a little unexpected.  Why?  Because of the color I decided to use, and I just adore this split opening.   Let's take a look...

#creativecardcloset #pinkzinnias #lisabrown

(click on above image to get a close up look)

I used Petal Pink card stock, layers of Basic White and the Flowering Zinnias 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper.

  • I built up the flowers and leaves on Deckled Rectangle pieces
  • Two flowers colors with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends and one with Pumpkin Pie
  • The flower centers are coordinating colors with a Lemon Lolly flower ring.   I added a little Granny Apple Green highlighting with my sponge daubers. 
  • I stamped three sets of leaves with Granny Apple Green with Stampin' Blends

Using Stampin' Dimensionals, I layered the flowers to get different heights. 

Finishing the card, add several of the self-adhesive shiny sequins from the suite collection. 

Important Note:  The Sequins are on Back Order!  This will make the entire suite collection unorderable.  NOTE that everything else is still available and you can order everything separately.... Just make sure to order the stamps and dies Bundle to get the 10% discount.  I have listed everything below.

Zinnia bunch with some sparkle

I have an easy card share today, using the New Online Exclusive Suite Collection - Flowering Zinnias

Zinnia suite

The large zinnia cluster stamp has lots of detail to it but it makes it easy to color and add contrast.  I used Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie Blends makers for the flowers and then Granny Apple Green with highlights of Old Olive for the leaves. 

#creativecardcloset #bunchofzinnias #lisabrown

I had to give you one more look at the word banner... Look at that sparkle!!!  The Berry Burst Glimmer Specialty Paper is Awesome!  Comes in a pack with Old Olive & White (item # 163769)

#creativecardcloset #bunchofzinnias #sparkle

So this is a simple layered card but you could definitely step-up by adding another mat layer, and some die cuts.
