Eden’s Garden projects – getting the most mileage out of this beautiful collection

Eden's Garden Stampin Up UK

There’s a new collection of craft products from Stampin’ Up!® in town – and there’s a lot to love here. The collection is called Eden’s Garden and it features stamps, dies, Designer Series Paper and more.

Now bear with me here because it’s not totally straightforward:

⭐️ Eden’s Garden stamp set and Eden Dies
These are an early release from the upcoming Jan-June Mini Catalogue, so will carry over to next year. They are available separately, as a bundle or as part of the full Eden’s Garden Collection.

⭐️ Ever Eden Speciality Designer Series Paper
⭐️ Ever Eden Cotton Paper
⭐️ Garden Gems
These are all exclusive products available now but only while supplies last. They will not carry over into the Mini Catalogue next year. They are available to purchase separately, or as part of the full Eden’s Garden Collection.

What I love about this collection – and the Ever Eden Speciality Designer Series Paper in particular – is that it can be used for year-round projects, or for Christmas as it features sumptuous greens and gold.

It can also be used with other products and I used the paper here to make a birthday card for my Mum, with an image from Nature’s Harvest.

The cotton paper has a lovely feel to it and I added more texture using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder, which comes in a mixed pack of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. I then mounted it onto a Soft Succulent card base.

I then decorated it with some of the gorgeous Ever Eden Speciality Designer Series Paper and added some gold ribbon and a Nature’s Harvest arrangement of flowers and grasses. This is one of my favourite stamp sets so I’m delighted to have more Designer Series Paper to use with it and give it a fresh new look.

For my second project using this gorgeous Designer Series Paper, I made a little book-style box which happily holds one four-finger KitKat or two two-finger bars (other chocolate bars are available and I am sure will fit).

Everyone who purchased my Kit By Mail this month will receive instructions to make this cute little box. I added to the décor of mine using Forever Flourishing Dies – these and the Forever Fern stamps are yet more products which go well with the Eden’s Garden Designer Series Paper.

To decorate the top of the box I used some Ever Eden Cotton Paper in Evening Evergreen. I took a quarter sheet, measuring 6”x6”, then folded it into thirds along both edges, to create nine squares. I then cut a rough circle, freehand, using scissors.

I shuffled the nine circles a little so they weren’t sitting perfectly on top of each other and stapled them in the centre. Then I simply ruffled up the paper to create this pretty flower. The paper is soft and very thin but retains its shape when you do this, which is quite magical. 

I hope you like my Eden’s Garden projects. Now please take a look at some of the other projects you could make with this lovely collection…

This beautiful card uses a strip of Ever Eden Cotton Paper to create a ribbon effect – which is ideal if you are trying to avoid adding bulk to your project.

This is a cute tag which introduces Cherry Cobbler and Kraft into the mix. This could be used for Christmas or any other occasion.

By die-cutting the Eden’s Garden Designer Series Paper using Delicate Baubles Dies, with another cut from cardstock underneath, this becomes a fabulously festive tag. A touch of Brushed Metallic Cardstock keeps the bling levels subtle and classy.

By cutting out the centre of a die-cut image with the Delicate Baubles Dies, there’s a useful and versatile “Merry & Bright” to top this card – instantly transforming it into a Christmas card.

Here the Ever Eden Cotton Paper really comes into its own. I have to say that, spectacular though it is, I don’t think I’d have the patience to make this beautiful bow.
