Perennial Essence Suite was one of the first suites I had on my wish list as soon as I saw the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. I adore flowers and even more, I adore flowers and leaves that I can colour. Floral Essence Stamp Set not only has an amazing flower and leaves I can colour, it also has solid flower images for the times when I want a mix of both – as I’ve done with this card today.
The large flower has been watercoloured with Calypso Coral Ink and then I took my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to add some definition to the crease lines. The smaller flowers are stamped with Calypso Coral Ink and the centre is stamped with Memento Black Ink.
The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut with the matching Leaf Punch. The sentiment I’ve used fit my 2″ Circle Punch perfectly. This sentiment has a mix of fonts that I found really pretty – it’s also from the Floral Essence Stamp Set.
I added a strip of Calypso Coral Cardstock across my card and then added some of this gorgeous Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon – this ribbon is so soft and pretty I couldn’t resist heaps of it by bunching it across my card.
The designer series paper I’ve used in the background as my card base has a soft woodgrain pattern. The DSP is from Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.
Here’s what I created:
