This is the newest designer paper put out by Stampin' Up (available in the new catalogue coming in July). There are 6 different prints that all work nicely together. I wasn't too sure how much I liked this red one, but it's grown on me over the past few days. It's not a colour I would usually choose to work with so it gave me a chance to go outside my comfort zone.
Stamps: Clearly For You
Paper: River Rock, Paisley Petals
Ink: River Rock, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Extras: Whisper White Ribbon, Basic Jewels Pearls
I love Baja Breeze so I was thrilled to see it used so much in this colour palette. The clean lines of this card give it a touch of mordernity juxtaposed against the heritage feel of the pattern.
Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: River Rock, Baja Breeze, Paisley Petals
Ink: River Rock, Crumb Cake
Extras: Modern Label Punch, Basic Jewels Pearls
I wanted to make something on a larger scale to really show off this print so I made up this altered journal. Right now I am slightly obsessed with making these paper flowers, so it seemed a perfect fit to give the cover a vintage feel.
Here's a detail of the flower, as well as the tag to keep your place, or to use as a bookmark.
