Welcome to Birdwing Paper Designs and the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop which is offering a sneak peek into a new suite from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.
The early release of the Ornate Garden Suite (#154153) will be available to Demonstrators starting March 3-31, 2020 and then customers April 1-May 31, 2020. This brand new 2020–2021 Annual Catalog product suite is available for early purchase to give customers a first glance at the look and feel of the new catalogue.
The Ornate Garden Suite Collection consists of two stamp sets, two sets of die cuts for borders and layers, an embossing folder, ribbon, Designer Series Paper, and gold embellishments. We had a chance to play around with this colourful suite and create a few projects to show off all the fabulous florals!
The Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper is a colourful explosion of flowers with accents of gold! For my first card, I chose one of the small floral patterns of DSP to be my inspiration. I used it as the background layer, peeking out from beneath one of the Ornate Layers Dies. I then added an assortment of gold embossed sentiments from Ornate Thanks stamp set that, together, act as one whole sentiment. I finished off the card with gold embellishments and die cut flowers from the second set of dies, Ornate Borders.
The second card used several different Ornate Borders Dies to create a layered fringe on the card front. I mixed and matched the borders with DSP and coordinating card stock. The top of the card was gold embossed with a big Thank You from Ornate Thanks.
I even carried over the floral borders to decorate the inside of the card.
To complement the cards, I also used the Ornate Style stamps and DSP to create coordinating envelopes.
The Ornate Garden Suite Collection is perfect for creating spring Thank You cards and even beautiful Mother’s Day cards. The ability to mix and match stamps, dies, and paper will inspire any level of crafter. How do you plan to use the dies, stamps, and DSP?

I like the way the DSP peeks through the scrollwork of the frame – it’s such a pretty effect. Putting a group of sentiments together to make one big one is also a great idea! Lovely work, Leah.
As soon as I saw all the sentiments in Ornate Thanks, I was trying to figure out how to use a bunch of them to make one greeting!!
Leah these are beautiful and really highlight the colours in the suite! 💕
Thanks so much, Martin!!
Love how you used rows of color and pattern on each card! Stunning! 😃💕
Thanks!! I actually didn’t realize I did that until you mentioned it!!
These are fantastic Leah. I love the idea of leaving the die cut frame inside the layer you cut it from in the first card. Genius. TFS!
Thanks!! After I die cut that frame, I loved how it looked sitting on the big shot so I kept it mostly intact. It’s funny how some ideas present themselves!
Amazing Leah – all the layers in your card with the different colors and
a great idea with the envelopes. Very, very beautiful!!!
Thanks, Nina! I felt like these fancy cards needed some fancy envelopes to with them!!
I love the show of the different borders. This makes it so much easier to see what they really look like.This second card also shows off the SDSP. I love the first card for it’s simplicity. They are both awesome cards. I love them both.
That is so nice of you to say!! When I first had all the borders, I had to cut them out to see what they were like. I saw them sitting on my table and knew I wanted to use them all together.
