Have you seen the fabulous promotion we have on Designer Series Paper right now? Buy three packs of Designer paper and receive a fourth one for free! This is great timing with the new annual catalogue having just come out with lots of new designs to offer. I didn't have any trouble picking four packs thyat I loved to order. The first one I picked was Afternoon Picnic, which I am sharing with you on my card today.
I was looking at online challenges for inspiration and when I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch #164, I knew it would work great to showcase this paper. To create the background, I cut those pieces of patterned paper, one out of the Wisteria Wonder grid pattern and the other out of the hexagon paper, then I hancut around the hexagons to take some of them out, and layered the two papers. I then handcut some single hexagons and added them on top of existing ones using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The sentiment block came from the Label Love stamp set (a new sentiment set that came out in the annual catalogue). I stamped it in Crushed Curry ink, punched it with the matching punch, then stamped it again in Pear Pizzazz and handcut the center oval, then layered both parts with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the sentiment block over a piece of Pear Pizzazz seam binding. I believe this colour of seam binding is retired, but I'm still waiting on my new beautiful Chevron ribbons, so I cheated a bit and used the seam binding. On top of the knot, I glued one of the new In Color Boutique Details. Aren't they gorgeous? It was the ornaments I was most excited in getting when I saw the new catalogue. I forecast I'll be using them as much as I've used the cute In Color polka brads that just retired.
