Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Petals and Paisleys Sunshine Wishes

How gorgeous is this paper? I love it. There’s one or two patterns that on their own are a little eye watering, but when you mash them up together, and have only small hints of them, they look just stunning.

The copper I think is what called to me first. And while I’ve paired these papers with Rich Razzleberry, the Night of Navy with the copper on one of the pages is divine.

But to be fair, all our rich Regal and deep colours work well with coppers and bronzes. It’s the tones that are inside the colours that make it work so well. Imagine copper foil with Garden Green or perhaps with Elegant Eggplant. Lush!

However, as I said before, I’ve used Rich Razzleberry with mine to pull in the colours of the paper and I love it. Too easy to go with Night of Navy as shown in one of the samples on the catalogue pages, I went with something else. And I love it!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Petals and Paisleys Sunshine Wishes Copper Foil

I hummed and haahed about adding a die cut sentiment, by the nature of foil, it tends to ‘squish’ and is very easily embossed, therefore this shows the ‘push-out’ dots that are on the die itself. The ones you use to help push the die cut out. But actually, I think they work quite well! So Sunshine Wishes it is then!

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone,

    Even a busy card looks elegant made by you. Thanks Sam.

  2. Love the card Sam! I love that paper too but i get that some designs in smaller “sound bites” are more enjoyable.
    Hint: not my idea but it’s been suggested that you use your precision plate if you don’t want the dots on your diecut sentiment. I’ve tried it and it works.

  3. Oh Sam!! I could never, ever pull something like this!!! I’m very much intimidated by busy pattern paper, I don’t know how to mix and or match it with other patterns, ahh!! but you, YOU my dear did a magnificent job here with this two designs, it looks amazing, cohesive, perfect in every way.
    My untrained eye tells me that what made this patters look good is the separation of them by the matting behind each, this way they don’t like melt into each other into a horrible mess.
    I’m pinning this card, as a perfect example of how to make busy patter papers look amazing.
    Thank you so much for sharing this awesome card.

    PS. I wonder how do you decide on which patterns mix or match what other patterns? Do you study this designs to make your decision or do you just immediately know?

  4. We are almost a world apart but I just have to say that I love stopping in each day to your wonderful designs and little boxes !! It’s a pleasure !!
    Have a Happy Holiday !!
