Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper

Petals & Paisleys Photophotopolymer Bundle

The Paisleys & Posies Specialty Designer Series Paper is just asking to be framed for some DIY art work! I found these 3” x 3” frames at my local dollar store (what a score!). I trimmed the cardstock to 3” x 3” and placed it in the frame in front of the glass (that way you can always use it as a picture frame in the future if you desire).

I found that the Flourish Thinlits Dies paired perfectly with the Paisleys Framelits Dies. I like how the leaves add to the autumn vision that I had.

I took this same design and turned it into a card for Thanksgiving.

For the next card, I fussy cut the Paisleys & Posies Specialty Designer Series Paper for the background of my collage. The copper strip & branch and the Night of Navy medallion come from the Flourish Thinlits. The Very Vanilla flower was cut with the Paisley Framelit dies. I swirled some Metallic Black Thread in the mix and finished with the “I thank you” stamp from the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set.

Finally, this last card uses the Petals & Paisleys suite to create a card that is creamy and soft.

The background cardstock is a specialty sheet from the Petals & Paisleys pack (each pack has two specialty sheets that are a copper embossed pattern). I loved the clean look of this sheet and wanted to do some watercoloring with it. I cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 2-1/2” 2-3/4” and did a watercolor wash with Mint Macaron for the background.

Here is how I created the leaves – On a separate piece of Watercolor Paper, do the same watercolor wash with Mint Macaron. Allow to dry (or use your Heat Tool to dry), and run through the Big Shot with the Flourish Thinlits. Trim the leaves from the branch.

I used the Copper Foil Sheet (also from the Petals & Paisleys suite) to cut out the petal with the Paisley Framelits. This Copper Foil sheets my just be my favorite thing – ever!!

This is the card inside…
