Remarkable You and Pretty Petals

Have you check out the DSP stack: Pretty Petals? Honestly, I didn't give it a second glance when it first came out in the annual catalogue, but after seeing it on a ton of projects, I just had to get it!

Today I'm sharing a card that displays a few of the different designs in the Pretty Petals DSP Stack. This is also a great way to use up those scraps of DSP you might have kicking around.

The colour combo in the Pretty Petals stack is: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Pacific Point, and Very Vanilla.

I stamped the "Remarkable You" flower and leaf stem in Black Stazon Ink, onto Calypso Coral and Old Olive cardstock. After cutting them out, I coloured the edges with a black marker to clean them up.

My strips of DSP are 3/4" x 4-1/4" and are mounted on a basic black mat. To accessorize, I added some twirls of Very Vanilla, Thick Baker's Twine (broken down) behind my flower and pearls to the center.

So... after creating my card, I still had some strips left... (you know... you need a lot of choice when creating ;) ) So... I decided to make another one! Only this time I used different DSP designs, BUT still from the Pretty Petals pack! How awesome is that!?!

Beyond the colour combo, I changed this card up a little... I added in a little more of the leafs and I did a Mint Macaron mat, instead of an Old Olive one.

So what do you think of my Pacific Point flower? Too odd? I wasn't sure about it, but I liked the brightness and rolled with it!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend and as always: happy creating!

  1. I like them both! The Pacific Point flower is beautiful. There just isn't enough blue flowers around. So pretty!
