As I was cutting and working with this pattern from the Best Year Ever DSP I really noticed how pretty it was! Such soft pretty colors designed into tulip or flower shapes! I didn’t want to detract too much from the paper so I kept the hearts simple and stamped a small size greeting from the Something To Say Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog, page 104.
Of course I had to add some kind of embellishment, so I decided to get out the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the Occasions Catalog. I decided to use one of the doilies in the kit and one of the soft flowers. The ribbons and other embellishments in the kit are really pretty. Just a special touch to add to any card or project!
The back of every package of designer series paper has a listing of the colors that coordinate with that paper. You can use that list as inspiration to help you design your project by choosing coordinating colors. I used to write the names of the colors on the back of the package after someone else figured it out! Now it is nice that Stampin’ Up! just adds the list to the package!
