At our OnStage event in November last year I asked to be a Display Stamper. I received a box of new products including some items from the Petal Passion Suite with which to create projects. These projects were displayed on the day so demonstrators could see different ways to use the products. Over the next couple of days I’ll share with you my samples using the Petal Passion Suite of products. First up is Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP). The papers in this pack are handpainted watercolour designs in shades of black and white.
My pieces of DSP measure 4.3cm x 6.5cm and are matted on Basic Black then Real Red and adhered to a Basic Black card base. The sentiments used on these four cards all come from the coordinating stamp set – Petal Palette. The metal embellishment is from the Petal Passion Embellishments and the Silver Bakers Twine is from the Sweet Soiree Suite. There are two designs in the embellishment pack – a leaf and a flower – so check right to the end of this post to see the flower.
This card uses four more designs from the DSP pack. The measurements for this card are Top L-R: 3cm x 4.7 cm, 6cm x 7.5cm; Bottom L-R: 3cm x 8.5cm, 6cm x 5.7cm. Again this card is matted on Basic Black, then Blushing Bride and then a Basic Black card base. The sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride then die cut using the Layering Circle Framelits.
Here’s another of the designs which I matted onto Calypso Coral then onto a Basic Black card base. The image is from the Petal Palette stamp set and coloured in using the new Stampin’ Blends. This embellishment has an eye loop which is great for threading twine or ribbon to adhere to your card.
I love this Pinwheel design – its a great way to showcase the different designs in a paper pack. My DSP squares are 1 1/4″ square and there are 8 of them. They are matted onto 1 3/8″ squares of Melon Mambo which in turn are adhered in an overlapping method onto two 3″ squares of Basic Black which have been adhered off centre to create the 8 points. The circle is punched from Melon Mambo using a 1/2″ punch with the metal flower embellishment adhered on top. The flower comes with a pearl in the centre.
Well I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some different ways to use your DSP. In the next installment I’ll share some more samples of the DSP but this time coloured in.
