I didn't realise until I joined Stampin'Up as a demonstrator how much I loved patterned paper. I should have know as - if I bought something from one of those shops that puts what you have bought in a paper carrying bag, if it had colour on it I kept the bag too. Infact last time we moved house I had quite a collection of those paper bags. Yes that is a little sad.
Now if you have seen the spring summer catalogue (and if you haven't message me and I will send you one) you will know there are some stunning papers. Todays post is about one of the best.
Painted with love
It is beautiful. Gold foil amongst the pinks, reds and oranges on one side of each sheet and lovely patterns on the other side. I have a friend who loves stationary and writing letters so this is a small gift for her. Made and sent with love.
I started with the box, I found the youtube videos didn't do the size I wanted so designed my own.
In the box are 5 tags, 5 mini 3" x 3" cards with a swish of pink ribbon, very simple using the back of the foiled papers, and 5 notecards.
The five notecards, use each of the foiled papers.
Card 2 uses a sentiment from the same set. I have heat embossed this with gold then coloured with the nib end of the marker pens.
Card 3 the sentiment is die cut in gold foil using the FREE sale-a-bration dies.
Card 4 is simple the designer paper says it all
Card 5 using the free dies again, the 'amazing' double layered with powder pink.
I love this and just might have to make one for myself. I think my friend will love hers too.
