Paisleys & Posies

img_3391Yep..it is still another Paisleys & Posies card.  I am sooooo lovin’ this set and matching framelit.

For this card I wanted to use a blue color combo along with the copper and decided that Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla would work great with it.  I also wanted to use my new stencils from the Holiday Min.  I think it turned out pretty cool and love the touches of copper on there.  I do find though that I have a tough time getting a good picture of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Copper Foil – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, cut out center of panel leaving a 1/2″ frame all around, add to front
  • Very Vanilla – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, use stencil and Pool Party ink to add background
  • Night of Navy – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to panel
  • Copper foil – cut out the biggest paisley then cut out the inside paisley, stamp with dotted paisley using Versamark and Copper Emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Bermuda Bay, stamp large flower using Versamark, copper emboss, cut out and add to card front
  • Night of Navy, stamp flower/stem using Versamark, copper emboss, cut out, Very Vanilla, stamp scallop swirl using Versamark copper emboss, cut out, layer with Night of Navy flower and add to card front

Paisleys & Posies

img_3389I don’t know WHY I did’t want to get this set.  I LOVE it!  When I first saw it my thought was…WAAAY too fussy and those of you who know me know I don’t do fussy .

But then after seeing so many cool things using this set, well I did HAVE to have it.  If you haven’t check out my other cards you can see a super simple one here and a fancier one here.

This is another simple card and think it is a great card for fall.

  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, wrap piece of Mint Macaron Mini Striped Ribbon, stamp greeting using Momento Black, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Cajun Craze – cut out using two of the paisley framelits layered together; stamp using the dotted paisley, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Mint Macaron and Basic Black – cut out ‘fancy’ leaves and add to paisley
  • Delightful Dijon – stamp medium ‘flower’, cut out with matching framelit and add to paisley to finish off

See…wasn’t that simple?  And speaking of simple…it’s that time again.  The October Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session will be opening soon and it’s not too late to subscribe.  It features all things from the NEW Holiday Mini – COOL!
