Hi everyone, for many years I could have been classed as a Paper Hoarder. I had shelves of gorgeous patterned paper. I had the perception that if I used it I might mess it up, or find a project I liked better to use it on. The problem was that this gorgeous paper never got off the shelf and onto my projects. Of course, it was compounded by the fact that new paper was being released regularly and there’s always something I thought ‘might be better’. What a waste! Nowadays I make sure I use my papers. The awesome thing about the Stampin’ Up! paper packs is that there are multiples of the different designs. This means some I can leave whole for scrapbooking 12×12 pages, others, I cut up for card bases, and others again, I can die cut or fussy cut out the images. And you know what? I can always buy more if I find that I am using lots of one of the paper packs. I love actually using these gorgeous papers.
Today’s card features the gorgeous Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. This is a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward and could be yours for FREE with a qualifying order. I used the paper in a couple of ways. I cut a strip to add to my card base. I also fussy cut out the flower and foliage images to create a cluster around my stamped sentiment (which is from the Pretty Perennials stamp set).
Here’s the card…
You might be able to notice the pattern on the Night of Navy cardstock base. I added some of the stamps from the Pretty Perennials stamp set into a cluster on one block and then stamped it in Versamark all over the background. You could also use the Night of Navy ink if you want a stronger tone on tone look.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

I also link refills and basic supplies like adhesives which correspond with items used to make my projects. These links take you to my online store.
