Just Add Text to Petal Garden Paper

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Just Add Text to Petal Garden Paper

I am a paper monster. As if you didn’t know that…. and I love how easy it is to make a glorious card with matching ribbons and inks.

I’ve said it many a time before, Stampin’ Up! does the hard work and makes me look good!

I love the Petal Garden paper, although the stamp set that goes with it isn’t my style particularly. I’m nothing if not honest!

So I decided to work with just 2 of the sheets of DSP, one of which had a great pattern clustered in one corner. A little bit of jiggling about with sizes and I managed to get the roses replicated in miniature with another sheet of paper from the same pack.

When I first joined Stampin’ Up! we had DSP colour collection stacks that matched every colour we had, and rather than have the patterns in the colour + white, it was the colour + a softer tone of the same shade. So this particular paper pack really appeals. Those roses are the perfect match to Rich Razzleberry because they’re a muted softer tone of that same shade.

I love them and they look great with the much stronger ink on the Just Add Text phrase with the matching card blank. But here’s a quirky thing. That ribbon is actually Fresh Fig! Not too different to be a problem, it’s a great contrast!

Happy me! Darker and Lighter tones of the same colour.
