Oh how I loved this Petal Passion Designer Series Paper from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. I've loved working with it, but it's now onto the Stampin' Up! Retiring Products List, and only available while stocks last through May 31st.
The three main reasons I loved it, were:
- It is a great neutral paper as a black and while, but this one for me was particularly useful because the contrast of the black was toned down quite a bit by the sketch look of the images, so there is actually quite a lot of softer grey in there too;
- It has a floral / nature theme which are my favourite paper themes (anyone who follows my Instagram ill know how much I love flowers and plants).
- It was FABULOUS to colour with Stampin' Blends (which are back in stock within weeks now and 11 fabulous new colours (in light and dark) are coming June 1st!
- It coordinates beautifully with the Petal Palette bundle (carrying over to the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but only available at the 10% bundle price until May 31st.
For this card, I have just used different colours of the Stampin' Blends to colour flowers on the paper.
In between the flowers I sponged some Soft Sky ink. The card just needed a simple black and white sentiments but I have also added a few rhinestones to some of the flower centres.
For my second card, I have used one of my favourite colour combinations with this paper: Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.
For the floral image, I have stamped the image from the Petal Palette Stamp Set (see links at end of post) and in Memento Black, and coloured with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. I have used one of the coordinating embellishments, some Old Olive ribbon and a greeting cut from one of the coordinating Memory and More cards.
Check out the links at the end of this post, and don't miss out on the beautiful Petal Passion paper pack, along with the coordinating embellishments and Memories and More pack (only available while stocks last or May 31st) and bundle pricing on the Petal Palette bundle (ends May 21st).
