The Crafty Collaborations Team is comprised of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in several collaborative projects, including Blog Hops, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.
Today we are showing you new products from the amazing 2024 January-April Mini Catalog. I don’t know if I remember ever loving a catalog so much- or ever purchasing so much in a preorder!
I think my new favorite floral stamp is the Enduring Beauty Bundle and the Enduring Beauty masks that coordinate with it. Here’s my card….
Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m very late to jumping on the bandwagon with the layering masks. I’ll also admit I was afraid of them. Often with masks I get ink where I don’t want it, leave fingerprints on my card, and generally become frustrated. Well, I can tell you that these Enduring Beauty Masks are different. This bundle and the coordinating masks go on sale on January 4. I think you definitely want to add these to your collection. They are amazing.
Here’s a sneak peek at the stamp set and dies. By the way, the bundle includes the masks, too! The flower is beautiful and fills up the front of a card nicely. I love the sentiments and the mixed font. How about those dies? You can cut out the bouquet, individual flowers and leaves and most of the sentiments fit in the rectangle. You can’t beat that.
Let me tell you about the masks. Easy Peasy. I stamped the bouquet in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then used low tack tape to adhere it to my table. I match up mask number one and drew with ink in the little “notch” that is in the top left corner. Each mask has that notch so you can line them up exactly.
I began blending with Daffodil Delight ink. I left it pretty light as I knew there were two more layers to blend over this one. The best part? I didn’t have to figure out which colors to use together. I just used Daffodil Delight for each layer on the flowers and Mossy Meadow on the leaves. The layers of the masks added more ink and darkened them up beautifully.
I was so excited with each layer that I forgot to take more photos with them on my project. Here’s the finished project layered on the Vellum Basics Specialty paper. I added a sentiment and then a few gold pearls from the Festive Pearls pack. Viola! A gorgeous card has been born.
I know you’ll be seeing a lot more cards from me with this bundle! It’s a beauty!
Instructions for enduring beauty, enduring love card
- Cut a Mossy Meadow card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″.
- Stamp the bouquet of flowers in Memento ink on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White.
- Line up Mask #1 on the flower and then tape the Basic White to scrap paper on your work surface with the mask at an angle that will be easy to match up the notches. Mark the notch with pen or a marker.
- Using a blending brush, lightly blend Daffodil Delight ink on the open areas of the mask. Remove mask #1.
- Lay mask #2 over the flower lining up the notch on the left. This should make it line up perfectly with your image. Use Mossy Meadow ink to lightly blend color on the leaves.
- Continue with all the masks. Use Daffodil Delight ink for all the flower parts and Mossy Meadow for all of the leaves.
- Die cut the bouquet with the outline die. Adhere it with dimensionals to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Vellum Basics Specialty paper.
- Flip over the vellum and add snail in the areas that are behind the bouquet. (Your adhesive will show through the vellum so be sure it is hidden.)
- Stamp your sentiment with Pebbled Path ink on a scrap of Basic White. Trim.
- Add to the front of the card.
- Sprinkle 3 gold pearls from the Festive Pearls embellishment pack.

Here’s one last card I made with the Enduring Beauty bundle. For this card, I decided the flowers were stunning without color. I paired it with the Nature’s Sweetness patterned papers. What do you think?
