All Adorned & Painted Seasons

When you start with a gorgeous Designer Series Paper, you can create a stunning card by simply layering the patterns. Just let the paper do the talking. Here’s a card I made with the GORGEOUS Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper that’s part of the Second Sale-a-Bration release that kicks off this week (on February 15):

  • Perfect Frame. I love this sentiment from the All Adorned stamp set – what a wonderful thing to say with a “thank you” or a “happy birthday” or any celebration of someone you love! I framed my sentiment with the Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies from the Occasions Catalog.

  5. This is a fabulous card, Brian! Thanks for the inspiration. I had been on the fence about the Climbing Roses bundle – now I must have it!

  6. Wow, beautiful DSP!

  7. you just keep out-doing yourself. I don’t know how you do it! this is beyond gorgeous. I grapple with the fact of letting the paper do the talking as I feel I should always be stamping an image for a handmade card. so I am actually hanging this image in my craft space to have YOU remind me that it’s perfectly OK. Thanks, pal!!!

    • Thanks so much, Dara! I always love to stamp, but I also think that cutting into and combining papers can be just as artistic and handmade. So glad you like the card and am happy it inspires you. ♥
