Perennial Essence Suite

Happy Monday! Today is an extra-happy one for's the last Monday of classes before the end of the school year! Just one more week of exams after this one and this girl is on holidays! Wahooo!!!
I hope you had a good weekend and were able to catch our Stamping Symphony team blog hop on Saturday. If you missed it, be sure to go back to my previous post to check out all the new product goodness that my incredibly talented stamping friends designed.

This week I am featuring the Perennial Essence Suite. I have to say, that the Designer Paper from this suite is my favourite paper EVER!! It is absolutely STUNNING! Like, I'm talking frame-worthy! It reminds me so much of gorgeous Impressionist art by Monet and Renoir of which I am a HUGE fan. I have every intention of buying some beautiful frames and creating some new decor for my home with this paper. Now, the suite isn't just about the paper, there are tons of other products that all coordinate beautifully...

I used ALL of these beautiful products on today's project...check it out:

Of course, I had to make the DSP the star of the show for this project. In fact, I used it for more than just the background! Both the flower petals and the leaves were all punched from different DSP patterns. I love the way it adds texture and variation to the leaves and flower. Here's a closer look...

I also punched some sprigs from the beautiful coloured vellum...I love the softness of the translucent paper. It all works together with the designer paper background. Solid images just would look out of place against those gorgeous floral images in the DSP.

I used one of the cute little fuzzy flower centres...those things look SO real!...and anchored my floral arrangement with a pearlized doily. I added some shimmer with some of the beautiful organdy ribbon and some frosted epoxy droplets.

On the inside of the card I stamped another sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set and added a 3/4" strip of that beautiful DSP...I just can't get enough of it!

I'll be demonstrating this card and two others that feature products in this suite in this week's Tuesday Live @ Five video over on my Facebook page. If you miss the live broadcast, you can catch the replay on my YouTube channel or here by clicking the Video Tutorials tab at the top of the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...have a fabulous week!
