With the release of every catalog, I’m always excited to play with the new Designer Series Papers. There’s always “that one page” that stands out for its pattern or colors or texture – I’m always afraid to use “that one page” because I want to make sure I have the perfect project for it. The GORGEOUS, boldly striped page in Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is “that one page” for me. I threw caution to the wind and just cut into it! I was inspired by the colorful stripes and used those colors to make this card:
Here’s a look at the fun, vibrant colors in the Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:
I pulled Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Parakeet Party from the paper to build the poppy that rests on the focal panel of this card. It’s such a vibrant combination of beautiful tones! To build the poppy and accompanying leaves, I cropped Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Parakeet Party cardstock with the Poppy Moments Dies:
To build my flower and leaves, I used a “pad dragging” technique I shared a few weeks ago. I dragged a Calypso Coral ink pad over Calypso Coral cardstock to darken the piece of paper. I cropped the detailed, thin dies with the inked cardstock and cropped the base with un-inked cardstock. I used the same technique to build the leaves and center of the flower. If you’d like to see more about how I built these items, click here.
I added a little texture to the Starry Sky panel behind the flowers with some Starry Sky ink and a water spot image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. The sentiment on the card is pulled from the Hello Beautiful stamp set. ♥
I love the unexpected mix of colors in the Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I’m not sure I would have ever put them together, but they are a perfect combination. If you like this mix of Parakeet Party, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
