Today's two cards that I've created I have used the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper this paper reminds me of the French Impressionism and the colours are just stunning. I've also used the Floral Essence Stamp Set, Perennial Flower Punch and the Leaf Punch.


Product colours: Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss, Blueberry Bushel, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Petal Pink, So Saffron, Whisper White

The first card I've based the colours is from the DSP using Petal Pink, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow and Whisper White. The flowers have been stamped in Petal Pink Ink and lightly coloured in with the Stampin' Blends in the coordinating colour. 

The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink which coordinates with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread. The greeting fits nicely in the 2" Circle Punch and layered with Petal Pink Cardstock using the Starburst Punch.

The second card I've used is Blackberry Bliss, Pretty Peacock, Old Olive and Whisper White as you can see there are plenty of different shades of colours throughout the DSP and I've only chosen a few.

I've used the same stamp set for this card, but this flower coordinates with the Perennial Flower Punch making flowers nice and quick. Blackberry Bliss Ink for the flower, followed by colouring in with the coordinating Stampin' Blends and the leaves are in Pretty Peacock.

The elegant ribbon is Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8" reversible Ribbon which has a beautiful sheen on both sides.

I've layered the DSP on both cards the same way, but changing up using different colours, flowers, Ribbons and Punches.

  1. Vicki I love your colour combinations and the subtle feminine layering on your cards xx

  2. I just love this paper and it makes me think of Monet or someone like that too! Your cards are beautiful. I really like the blackberry bliss but that is my favourite Stampin' Up colour.

  3. Beautiful cards using this lovely paper. Both so different, but gorgeous and the Blackberry Bliss one is really striking!

  4. Your cards are both beautiful Vicki, and you have used my favourite of all the DSP. Really gorgeous.

  5. Both your cards are lovely Vicki. I love the softness of colours in your first card and then the deep richness of colour in the Blackbery Bliss card.
