Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop | Perennial Essence Suite

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to the July Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! The team has so many amazing creations for you to see! I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs! With so many different looks and creations, there is so much creativity to inspire you. There is something for every different creative style. So lets get hopping!

This month we are all about the Perennial Essence Suite products from the 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. Have you seen this gorgeous suite yet? The products of this suite can be found on pg.106 - 108 in the new Annual Catalogue. So pretty!

This amazing suite has a the gorgeous Floral Essence Stamp Set and the coordinating Perennial Essence Flower Punch. Got to love the Stampin' Up! product coordination! Another amazing product in this fantastic suite is the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper features hand-painted impressionistic imagery in rich colours and it is beautiful enough to be framed on its own! Just so stunning!

I've combined the Floral Essence Stamp set and the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper with some of the other stunning products in this suite - Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon in Petal Pink and the Perennial Essence Floral Centres. I've used the colours from one of the sheets of the DSP as the colours for my projects today.

I'm just a sucker for any product that has a hint of pink in it so I started my card today with the Petal Pink Vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, which comes in three colours - Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Saffron, and ran it through the Subtle Embossing Folder for that gorgeous 'sublte' hint of embossing. The Subtle Embossing Folder just adds that something special without it being too much. Layered with the Perennial Essence DSP, the 5/8" Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon and images from the Floral Essence Stamp set, it makes for a pretty in pink creation.

I've used nearly all the same products for my second card but changed up the look. I wanted to soften the look of the DSP layer, so over that I layered an embossed layer of Vellum Cardstock. The colours of the DSP show through the vellum but the 'busyness' of the DSP is toned down. I've embossed the flowers with Gold Stampin' Emboss powder on Shimmery White Cardstock and then using an Aqua Painter, water coloured the flowers with Petal Pink Classic Ink. The touches of gold really accent the Petal Pink elements and the Crushed Curry tones in the DSP and the embellishments.

I love how these all these elements look layered up and the Basic Black sentiment panel is a beautiful contrast to the soft colours on the rest of the card.

This is such a gorgeous and pretty suite and I do hope that I've given you some inspiration on using some of the products from the Perennial Essence Suite. It's just so pretty!

  1. Rochelle ... these cards are just wonderful! The importance of the details, the use of the subtle bender and the colorful vellum are so cleverly used! Everything is great here. The second card with the addition of classic vellum and corrugated folder hides the design paper without it being forgotten ... It's really perfect! Thank you for these creations! xx
