Hello stampers. Those who have known me for a while know that I have made great strides in organizational skills. This is not first nature to me at all. I wish that I could come up with a great system for organizing all the sentiments that we have in our stamp sets. A search engine would be awesome. That way we could find all the “get wells”, the “happy anniversaries” etc. Every once in a while I stumble across a set that has a lot of great sayings that I could have used more often. Today we are going to use one of those sets. It is called Wonderful Moments. I initially chose that set for the beautiful lined images that are perfect for watercolouring or blends, but there are many great sayings in it too. Add to that, it pairs perfectly with Petal Promenade paper which is a free saleabration item for just a wee bit longer. Yes, saleabration ends this Sunday!!
For these cards I combined two saleabration freebies: Petal Promenade paper and Country Floral embossing folder. The texture and dimension of these easy cards is fantastic. I did have to fussy cut the elements on the middle two cards but it was quite easy and not too time-consuming. Let’s take a closer look.
This Petal Promenade paper is just so beautiful, the flowers just pop off the page and you can almost smell them! One of the sheets in this designer paper pack has images that you can cut out. Some are square or rectangle and there are two wreath images that are a little more fussy to cut out, but totally worth it. All you need to do is pair with some matching cardstock, in this case Blackberry Bliss and a bit of ribbon. I used the muted patterned paper for the card front. In this paper pack one side is a bold floral and the other is more muted and soft.
I just love how the Country Floral embossing folder looks so pretty with this paper. You can combine it with either whisper white or very vanilla depending on your mood.
The lovely thing about our suites is that there are a lot of coordinating products available to take your card to a new level. It’s all in the details right? There are Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems and well as Rose Metallic thread. I kept these cards quite simple so I didn’t use the metallic thread, but I have used it on other cards and it is lovely.
This last card uses the Petal Promenade paper both in the background and as the focal point. I used the stamp set Wonderful Moments for the sentiment and a little petal pink rhinestone jewel as an accent.
I hope you were inspired by my cards today and have seen how easy it is to make beautiful cards with the Petal Promenade paper that you can get for free with a $60 purchase until March 31. Saleabration is almost over!! All products used in these cards will be listed below, just click on any of them and you will be taken to my online store. Technology makes it pretty easy for you to be separated from your money!! Have a super day.
