Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop - Perennial Essence Suite

Hello everyone. Welcome to another Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team blog hop. This month we are sharing projects created with the products in the Perennial Essence Suite. This suite is all about flowers and the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper has the most amazing hand-painted impressionistic imagery. 

How stunning are these patterns? They really are just so beautiful that they would look amazing framed on their own. 

I couldn't go past using this pattern of soft pink and rich blackberry roses and I wanted to draw on the Blackberry Bliss tones with this card. When stamping my flowers I stamped the larger flower in full strength Blackberry Bliss and the smaller flower was stamped off first and then stamped in the second generation. I then stamped the centre of the flower in Blushing Bride before fussy cutting the flowers.

To compliment the floral imagery I added a Whisper White tag and Mossy Meadow leaves created with flower die from Botanical Tags Dies and the sentiment has been die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Lastly I embellished the card with some Scalloped Lace Trim, a couple of Pearls and Silver Faceted Gems that have been coloured with a Dark Blackberry Bliss Blend and a nest of frayed Organdy Striped Ribbon.

Thank you for joining me today. Make sure you continue through the hop to see what my Artisan friends have created with this suite. Next up is my beautiful friend Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. You are going to love her work. 

Happy Stamping
