Paisley and Posies - the journey begins

Don't you just love trying a new stamp set for the first time! I've finally had a chance to break out the Paisleys and Posies Bundle, and I am so impressed, dare I say it,..... it may just be my new favourite!


I couldn't pass up the Colour Challenge this week at the Global Design Project

likewise with the awesome sketch at Freshly Made Sketches


Challenges are such a good may to open you mind to create, they can can also give you the gentle push step outside your comfort zone, whether it be with colour or layout - both of these challenges grabbed my eye, I adore the colour combination, and love layering so I was in my element!

I changed the layout a tad, moving the banner element to the side so that the lovely paisley flowers could feature vertically, I combined 2 stamps to create the feature with the lovely sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies Bundle


I decided to use Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder for my stamping, how amazing does the the detail in these stamps look! I think the copper shines as Rose Gold when paired with Blushing Bride and Rich Razzleberry - but I then I am partial to pink!



I also carried through colour theme and stamping to the inside of the card



I used VersaMark the same image to stamp the background on the card front, just love this subtle stamping effect.

  1. I think your paisley flowers are divine and I really like the background stamp you've done on the Rich Razzleberry card base. This is a really pretty card.

  2. Sue, this is stunning. I love that you highlighted that bright Rich Razzleberry and used ot for the base, it's so bright and fun! The gold elements are beautiful and The banner is clever too! It's very, what would you call it...bohemian? Either way, it's gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing along to the Global Design Project this week. xo
