Paisleys & Posies and Copper – Okay I admit it!

Okay I have to admit that I skipped over Stampin' Up!'s Paisleys & Posies stamp set.  I did not intend to buy it, no way.  It remined me of the THAT pant suit I made out of blue paisley fabric.  At the time I made it, I thought it was beautiful (I can't imagine what I was thinking). Now when I remember , it was heideous!   Well fast forward to last week — my team member Carol M-C got together and stamped and she brought her new demo sets.  Well there was the Paislely & Posies stamp set.  Well I am not one to back down from a challenge, in fact, I do my best work when I have a limited # of supplies and concentrate on making everyone love it. Well I think I accomplished my goal, now I love it and it will be on my next order!
So you must be waiting to see how I could make anyone love this stamp?  Wait no more here it is:

I also made two other cards with this set which I will post later and I love them all.  I think the secret was adding the Copper Foil paper.  I struggled with the colors and their design until I added the Copper Foil to the mix.  Beautiful and all the colors work.  Thanks for stopping by my blog and if you have any questions or comments, please add them in the comment section below.

The Wisteria Wonder Background was created with the Bordering Blooms stamp set and the saying is from Stampin' Up!'s new Occasions catalog stamp set called Butterfly Basics.  Now the fun part of this card is using Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration brochure and you get it free with a qualifying purchase of $50 net product!!  This is a white paper with a glossy white pattern which is perfect for coloring.  I used a sponge and Soft Sky Classic ink, however, you can spritz it or use a roller to roll on the color.

Now you want to know how you can get the paper free?  It's easy, just place a $50 net product order from my online store or directly with me and and you can choose this 12 x 12 paper pack or any of the other wonderful products in the Sale-a-bration catalog.
