Paper Adventures Blog Hop – In the New

Hey Everyone

Welcome to my blog!

I’m a little bit excited that I was asked to be the Guest Designer at my crafty friend, Kelly Kent’s, team hop this month. The Paper Adventures Team are showcasing new products in their projects. Lucky there’s a new catalogue out and I have new Stampin’ Up! products on my desk.

If you know my cards, you will know that I love everything floral. The Pansy Patch Stamp Set was one that entered by shopping cart without a second thought.

I’ve kept my card pretty simple to let the pansies and sentiment be the main focus. The pansies have been stamped with three different stamps. The base stamp was stamped off once on scratch paper with Polished Pink Ink. I then changed stamps and stamped the second layer in full strength Polished Pink Ink. This gave the outside of the flower a darker colour.I then stamped the centre of the flower in Black Memento Ink.

The leaves were stamped with two stamps. The first layer was stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink and the more detailed stamp in Black Memento Ink. The leaves were then fussy cut out and layered under the flowers.

The strip of DSP I’ve added to my card is from the Hand-Penned Memories and More Pack. I added some Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and tied a bow. Three Silver Metallic Pearls finished off my card.

The next card maker on the hop is the very lovely and very creative Narelle Simm. I love it when I come across another Narelle, there’s not many of us out there! Click here or on the button below to check out her creativity and to continue along the hop.

Thanks for stopping.
