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.
