Pretty in Pink with True Love DSP – Paper Players Challenge

Stampin Up True Love Celebration Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinupThe True Love Designer Series Paper collection has turned me into a coloring fool lately.  I love a set of black and white patterns and this collection is chock full of both floral and geometric patterns.  I haven’t even begun to use the geometric patterns as I’ve been enjoying coloring all the florals.  They are simply beautiful! Take a look here…

True Love Designer Series Paper #154281

My direction for today’s card came from The Paper Players color challenge.

Today’s card can be used for a variety of occasions using the sentiments from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

Stampin Up True Love Celebration Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinupHere are the details:

  • The card base is Flirty Flamingo with a Basic Black mat.
  • The Whisper White panel is embossed with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder.
  • I cut the floral spray from a pattern in the True Love DSP and colored it using Stampin’ Blends.
  • The flowers are hand cut with a hand cut Basic Black mat.  This is an easy way to step it up a bit and really highlights the image.
  • As I mentioned, the sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  I stamped it with Versa Mark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
  • Again, I hand cut the sentiment and mat.
  • Lastly, I added a few silver enamel dots.
