Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week and thanks so much for visiting today. This week Rachel asked us to create a card featuring our favorite bundle from the Occasions catalog for Fabulous Fabulous over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. My favorite bundle would have to be the one from the Petal Passion suite featuring the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Petals & More thinlits dies for the Big Shot. Once I settled on a color combination - basic black, old olive, pink pirouette, whisper white and wisteria wonder - I couldn't decide on how I wanted to color my roses so made two cards. Which do you like better?
For this card I colored the flower image with stampin' blend markers in old olive and pink pirouette. Did you notice that I colored the edges of the whisper white organz ribbon with the old olive stampin' blend marker? The Petal Passion DSP is from the same product suite - I love the black and white patterns in this pack! And it was so easy cutting out the flower image using the Big Shot and coordinating die from the Petals & More thinlits. The Lots of Labels framelits were used with the Big Shot to cut out the whisper white and pink pirouette/wisteria wonder card stock layers.
Here is a different version of the same card layout, but I switched out the colors and flipped the DSP strip over to the other side. I used stampin' write markers to color the image and left the ribbon white. So which is your favorite? I'm kind of liking the wisteria wonder roses card better. For even more Occasions catalog bundle inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
