Can I let you in on a little secret? I was given the Bohemian Designer Series Paper at the Stampin’ Up! Convention way back in March and I have to admit that it did not impress me very much. I love the colours but the patterns were just too “busy” for me. So it has sat in my cupboard gathering dust until I decided that I needed to get it out and have a play. So here is a card I created using this paper for one of my classes at the Beachmere Retirement Resort. I cut four different papers from the Designer Series Paper and attached them to Delightful Dijon card and then to scored and folded Bermuda Bay card. I stamped part of the Vivid Vases stamp onto Very Vanilla card using Stazon Jet Black ink. I also stamped the image onto Bermuda Bay card and cut out the vases. I attached the Bermuda Bay vases over the stamped vases and then coloured the flowers and leaves using Delightful Dijon, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers. I added a small Basic Pearl to the centre of the Blackberry Bliss Flower. I punched the image using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and attached it to a circle of Blackberry Bliss card cut using one of the Circles Collection Framelits Dies. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. Inside the card I added a narrow piece of Blackberry Bliss behind a strip of the Bohemian Designer Series Paper and attached it to Very Vanilla card.
I may have to review my first opinion of this Designer Series Paper and get it out to use more. Let me know what you think? I actually think this card works well.
Bye for now,
