As I was preparing for this week featuring the Season of Chic bundle, every time I typed Chic it came out Chick!  So, for that reason I decided to call today's card CHICK FLOWERS.  I am hoping if I name a card after my typing error it will end the spell and I'll get it spelled correctly the rest of the week!

My favorite thing in the Texture Chic Suite might just be the Textured Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper is gorgeous.  The colors are beautiful and there is lots of sparkle and shimmer from the gold accents on the paper.  Usually when I have a Specialty Paper that has metallic accents, I have a very difficult time using the opposite side of the paper, but the colors and subtle floral pattern on the top section of today's card is too pretty not to use!  It looks like flowers were painted years ago on the side of an old, worn barn.
Each of the paper patterns "coordinate" with one of the stamps in the stamp set -- whether it is the leaves, the snowflakes, or the flowers.  It is so pretty, and I love how Stampin' Up! coordinates their products.

If you'd like a better look at the paper and the stamps included in the Suite, click on one of the images in the product list below for a better close-up!

For today's card I obviously chose to use the flowers.  These flowers were so fun to watercolor with my Watercolor Pencils and a Clear Wink of Stella brush.  If you would like to see how I made them, check out my video on my Fairless Stampin' Flair YouTube Channel.

Wink of Stella works wonderfully to blend the colors and WOW, what a beautiful shimmer it creates!

I also love how the angle on this layout creates a little more interest, but sometimes creating angles can be a little challenging to figure out by only looking at a picture.  So, the FREE TUTORIAL that is available to download at this link includes a sketch with all the dimensions for cutting the angled DSP at the top.

As I was water coloring the flowers for my video, I was having so much fun that I ended up with several extra flowers.  So, I used one of them along with a leftover scrap of the designer series paper to decorate the inside of my card.  I love how the inside turned out almost as much as I love the front of the card.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and that you will come back on Wednesday and Friday to see some additional cards that I made with this beautiful suite of products.

Have a great week!
