Thanks for dropping by for this Latte Girls’ Blog Hop\Challenge.

Today’s Freshly Brewed Projects features the elegant Petal Passion Suite from the 2018 Occasions’ Catalogue. There are five products in the suite, as well as a coordinating Memories & More Card Pack … aren’t they simply stunning!

      Petal Palette Clear-Mount Bundle   Petal Passion Designer Series Paper
    Petal Passion Embellishments   Whisper White 1/4" (6.4 Mm) Organza Ribbon   Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders
With so many inspiring elements in the suite it can seem overwhelming … for this blog hop, I decided to showcase the Designer Series Paper and Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon.
The DSP is made up of 12 different handpainted watercolour designs in shades of black and white. This means that you can use your favourite colouring techniques to customise the paper for your project. I chose Powder Pink and Old Olive and simply coloured some of the DSP squares using either a Stampin’ Write Marker™ or Stampin’ Blends in the corresponding colours.
I decided to create a ‘sampler card’ by using each the 12 designs and colouring most of them … I really like the finished product.
I love using the Stitched Shapes Framelits … they give that special stitched finish to your project elements.
As you can see, I did use one of the stamps for the card insert and envelope.
The Organza Ribbon helps to create a balanced focal point for the card.
I hope that you enjoy this project … and the other projects posted for this blog hop. Visit them now!
