My friend, Donna Mikasa, is hosting this week’s sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. When I saw these panels, I knew I wanted to feature panels of Designer Series Paper – it’s what I do. My card showcases some beautiful products from the Pressed Petals Suite – including the Designer Series Paper and Specialty Washi Tape. Here’s my card:
- Pretty Panels with Pressed Petals. As you can see from my card, I didn’t stray too far from Donna’s sketch – I let the panels of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper do the work here. They created the color scheme and texture for my card. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper:What makes this paper “Specialty”? Several things: (1) it’s a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other and (2) there are 24 sheets in each pack – that means you get FOUR each of the six, double-sided designs in the pack of paper. Yay!
- That Flower. How much do you love that flower on this card?! It’s not a punch, and it’s not a die. The flower is created with the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. How cool is that?! There are two rolls of washi tape in the pack – and one of them includes these gorgeous Merry Merlot petals that (peel-and-stick flower petals so you can create your own flowers). It’s about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Here’s a look at the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape:Once the flower is assembled, the Perennial Essence Floral Centers are a perfect accent. Here’s a photo from the catalog (had you seen it?) that shows how these peel-and-stick petals can be used to build a gorgeous flower: QUICK TIP: Build the flower on your silicone mat. When you are done, tap your Embossing Buddy on the back of the flower – the powder will help to remove some of the tackiness of the washi tape.
- Sophisticated Color Combination. The colors on this card are pulled from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love the use of Merry Merlot in this paper and this washi tape flower – so sophisticated. Paired with Soft Suede (also in the paper) and the Mossy Meadow leaves, this combination of
