Creating Through The Catalogue | Parcels & Petals | Stamp Your Own Designer Series Paper

9 September 2020

 Today we are focusing on the Parcels & Petals stamp set & coordinating Perfect Parcels dies (pg 37 of the Annual Catalogue).

I loved the stamp with the multiple flowers on it and decided to stamp it all over a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then I used the Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils to colour the flowers & leaves in. I lightly spritzed the paper to wet the images which lightened the colour of the images a little. I created my own designer series paper!! 

I used Rococo Rose cardstock for the base of the card, added a layer of Gorgeous Grape cardstock then added my own dsp.  To add some extra interest I decided to use the olive green ribbon from the Ornate Garden combo ribbon pack and a piece of Magenta Madness ribbon across the bottom of the card to continue the colours that I had coloured in the stamped flowers. 
I stamped the larger flowers from the stamp set using Rococo Rose ink and Garden Green ink for the leaves. I added a layer of Garden Green cardstock to the back of the large flowers and adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the image up to create more interest. 
I stamped the sentiment using the Memento Tuxedo black ink and cut out using the label die from the die set. Again I adhered the sentiment using stampin' dimensionals and I felt the sentiment needed some bling! I added some of the pink Elegant faceted gems with some of the pearl basic jewels. 

As you can see if you can't afford to buy designer series paper, it is so easy to create your own!
