Don’t you LOVE it when things just work?
I know I do!!
And today’s project is one of those things that just worked!!
It really didn’t take me much time to get this card made…I think one of the reason’s for that, is because I stuck to one product suite. By allowing myself to chose products from within a pre selected group, I removed the need to spend a lot of time sorting through my entire craft stash &
procrastinating trying to decided which items to use.
So what did I use to create this sweet & simple card?
The aptly named Petal Passion Suite. It’s definitely one of my FAVE suites from the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue. You can view the entire Petal Passion product suite online by clicking here.
The beauty of this product suite lies in it being a predominately black & white colour scheme. Black & white always looks elegant & classy. It’s easy to use for both feminine & masculine projects & of course you can always add a pop of your favourite colour to really personalise what your making.
The colours that I’ve chosen to add to today’s card have been inspired by this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge #395. For more inspiration, click here to view all of this weeks entries.
I find it really hard to resist a pretty pink bloom, so I coloured my flower in using a selection of the new Stampin’ Blends. Once you get used to using them they really are fantastic to work with. I blended the light & dark Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blend markers, with a little of the light Calypso Coral, to create a soft blush pink for the petals. I was able to help create extra depth & interest to the shadows, by blending in touches of both the light & dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend markers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card…. If you’d like a try out the new Stampin’ Blends markers for yourself, but aren’t quite sure where to start, make sure you watch this great beginner video from Stampin’ Up!.
Much Love, K xo
