Perennial Essence Suite Bundle

And here’s my project!

Floral Essence Bundle - Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper- Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

Isn’t that Designer Series Paper scrumptious?  Each paper is more beautiful than the next.  I put a panel of the DSP onto a Blackberry Bliss card base.  I then stamped six (two for each flower) petal stamps in white craft ink directly onto the beautiful colored vellum cardstock.  I set them aside to dry.  I punched out three leaves from the green vellum cardstock with the Leaf Punch.  Love this punch!

I then made a banner with Petal Pink cardstock and Meadow Moss ink using one of the sentiment stamps from the stamp set.  Once the flowers were dry, I punched them out with the Perennial Flower Punch.  I assembled the flowers (two per flower) with glue dots, off-setting the petals to make a full flower.  I placed them onto the card panel, placed my leaves underneath, and then popped some Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins onto each flower center.  They’re so so pretty!   I tied a bow with the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and adhered it with a glue dot.  (Don’t you just love glue dots?  I use them ALL the time!) And there’s my card.  All the products I used are found at the end of this post.  Just click on an item to start shopping with me!
