As soon as I saw Claire’s sketch I was inspired create with some brand new products from the upcoming Stampin Up!® Annual Catalog. These products from the Perennial Essence Suite will be available starting June 4th, so today’s post is a little “sneak peek” of sorts.
The new products include:
- Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set
- Perennial Flower Punch
- Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper
- Perennial Essence 12” x 12” Vellum Cardstock
- Perennial Essence Floral Centers
The Designer Series Paper in this suite is truly stunning! The soft floral imagery is hand-painted and has such gorgeous color and detail, it could even be framed on its own. I decided to use two of the lighter patterns to create this wedding/anniversary card. And yes the layer with the stamped sentiment is actually Designer Series Paper with a very subtle pink pattern. So pretty!
Those Perennial Essence Floral Centers had me scratching my head a bit when I first saw them at Stampin’ Up!® OnStage earlier this month. They have an interesting “fuzzy" texture and at first glance, I wasn’t so sure I liked them. But once you pop them on the punched flowers, they totally look amazing. I think they are a really unique and fun detail!
For the So Saffron vellum layer and the Whisper White Layering Circle, I actually used the Subtle Embossing Folder to add a bit of texture. I love how this Embossing Folder looks on vellum. It adds a little pop of detail without being too distracting. I topped the flowers off with those fuzzy floral centers and then added some sequins for sparkle and shine.
- Old Olive Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”
- Petal Pink Cardstock - 4” x 5-1/4”
- Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (floral design)- 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”
- So Saffron Perennial Essence Vellum - 1-3/4” x 4-7/8”
- Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (for stamped sentiment) - 2” x 3-7/8”
As always, a quick look at the inside of the card, using a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Whisper White cardstock, a 1-1/4” x 5-1/4” strip of DSP and coordinating stamps. This paper is just gorgeous!
I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share a project using this sketch challenge. We’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday May 3rd, 2019.
