Welcome to August’s Sunshine SU Demo Blog Hop. We have all been given the challenge of promoting a suite from the new Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. Enjoy!
The Pressed Petals suite is quickly becoming one of my favorites from the new catalog. The Designer Series Paper is really what sold me on it, and before I knew it, I had bought the bundle, as well.
I was not sure exactly where I was going with my first card. I had played with the stamps on scrap paper to figure out the two-step stamping process, and soon, the DSP and the colors began to align. My first card’s base is Night of Navy, and the DSP is Pressed Petals. The image and sentiments are stamped in Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Night of Navy on Very Vanilla cardstock. I tore the image square and sponged some Early Expresso ink there to form an aged, damaged look. I colored the flowers in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody, and added some Wink of Stella to the middle. My embellishment is 3/8 Denim Ribbon. I popped the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For my next card, I had some fun with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive, and used the Subtles Embossing Folder for the backdrop. Heirloom Dies and Embossing Folders were used to frame the image.
Lastly, Seaside Spray brought a sweet gentleness to my sympathy card. I also utilized the Subtles Embossing Folder for a finished product, and added a little bow for an extra caring touch.
