Perennial Essence

Today I am sharing a few cards using the new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (#149100). This DSP is simply beautiful with a lovely Monet look to it. The colors are vibrant and the images are soft, which makes it absolutely perfect to use in combination with so many stamp sets in my collection!IMG_3806This card combines the Perennial Essence DSP with the Painted Harvest stamp set (#144783). I added the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers (#149442) to the centers of the flower, and some Gold Metallic Thread to add a little texture.

IMG_3807Here is another pretty piece of the Perennial Essence DSP combined with the new Delightful Day Bundle (#151114). This bundle includes the Delightful Day stamp set AND the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. I added some die cuts from the Flourish Dies (#141478), some new Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon (#149496), some White Baker’s Twine (#124262), and the Tailored Tag Punch piece (#145667).

IMG_3803This last card combines the Healing Hugs stamp set (#148223) and the Celebrate You Thinlits (retired). I also added a piece of the new Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon (#149704) to the card.IMG_3804This is a Wiper Card, so when you pull the card open a little “wiper” comes up to reveal a surprise! Fun card to make, and this was the first time I tried this type of card. I was able to find some nice directions on a couple other blogs. You can see the directions for this card HERE.IMG_3805

The card doesn’t actually fully open up, so I added my sentiment to the back of the card.

I hope you give this card idea a try, it’s pretty fun, and easy to make too! Also, I hope you can see how the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is a great DSP to use with so many floral stamp sets. If you are like me, you have a nice collection of flower sets, which will work well too. Have a great day and Happy Stampin’!
