Beautiful Uses With Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper

This beauitful paper, Paisley Petals, will be in the new Stampin'Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog coming out in July but, it is also available as a special "Sneak Peak" promotion through April 30th.


The designs to me are gorgeous and it coordinates with 10 of our Stampin'Up! colors (Bravo Burgundy, Tangerine Tango, Marina Mist, River Rock, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso).

The projects I've created with the Paisley Petals paper use the bargello technique found on Splitcoast. This technique fascinates me! You're never quite sure what you'll end up with but always pleasantly surprised with what you do.


I kept the layouts very simple to enjoy the bargello affect the colors and designs created. All three cards use the same paper but each one gives you a different look.


The Four Frames stamp set compliments the Paisley Petals Designer Series paper perfectly! The edges are sponged on this card giving it an even softer look.

That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed today's projects! I love reading each and every comment so, please leave one before you go!

Contact me if you have any questions or would like to take advantage of this great promotion! You can also order your Stampin'Up! products on line here 24/7.

Have a wonderful Easter!
