I had seen a project online that was made using the pretty designer papers from Stampin Up called Painted Blooms. So I went down to my "craft room" and took out some 5 x 7 frames that have been waiting for just the right project to be used.
I added the fancy die cut butterfly and then a couple of tags with a saying and some embellishments. Then I found the perfect pink ribbon to be used as a bow to finish it off.
Here is one that I made using a black frame. It gives it a completely different look. Which one do you like better?
Of course, no project is complete without some cards to go with it! I sponged onto the Irresistible Yours designer paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog that had glossy flowers on it and then wiped off the ink. One card has a bit more ink on it than the other. I think I like the lighter colored one.
I wanted to make a second card using the Painted Petals stamp set, but I wanted it to look different than the first cards. So I stamped the stems and added some punched out flowers for more of a 3-D look. Then I decorated a little notebook to go with it.
And to finish it all off, I made a little magnet using the new stamp set, Better Than Email. I used the same flowered paper as the notebook to give it a coordinating look.
Do you like the Painted Blooms paper projects? What would you make using them?
