Annual Catalog 2017-2018, Designer Series Paper

Just for You Petal Garden

This past week I was without a car due to my man’s car needing a new engine. So I was home without a car. This was a little frustrating but thankfully I had this new beautiful designer series paper called Petal Garden! When I first saw it in the catalog I was skeptical because of the color combo.

Whenever Stampin’ Up! puts out new catalogs one of my favorite things to look at is the new designer series paper!! I always want a pack of each. There are times I may not like the paper at the beginning but if I get it in my hand then I usually fall in love with it! Designer series paper packs are double sided paper (unless its a specialty sheet.) They come in 12″ by 12″ packs or 6″ by 6″ packs. Using designer series paper makes it easier to create a card or project since Stampin’ Up! creates “Suites” around the designer series paper with other products that coordinate like stamps, Memories & More and embellishments.

Petal Garden designer series paper is just so pretty once you see it used on projects. That’s how I fell in love with the paper before receiving it from my upline (Erica Cerwin) as an unexpected gift for helping out on our team page. I started out with creating a card that was based on a project that she created for Creative Convention by Ronda Wade. I 
think the only changes I made was the position of the bakers twine and the sentiment used. 
The card base is Calypso Coral card stock. Taking a full sheet of card stock you can score it at 4 1/4″ then rotate and cut the sheet in half at 5 1/2″. This gives you two cards per sheet of card stock.

Then taking the dsp I cut it down to 4 by 5 1/4 leaving as many of the flowers as I could. 
Die cut a stitched edge circle out of Whisper White card stock. 
As well as a heart die from the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits to die cut the designer series paper.

I just stamped the sentiment “Just for you” from Watercolor Wings on Whisper White and flagged both edged. 
Popped the heart and the sentiment up with Stampin’ Dimensionals; I love those things!!!😝
To tie it all together I used Pool Party Bakers twines to wrap around the long edge of the card twice and tied a simple bow. The color of the bakers twine is so pretty! Then last step is add some bling and some Wink of Stella to the flowers!!
