Picture Perfect and Love Blossoms - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you're here!

So...our product focus this month is the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  This little paper stack is a powerhouse of versatility...and perfect for some many things!  

And then... there's Picture Perfect...one of the supporting stamp sets.  And here's the thing about Picture Perfect...anyone (yes, anyone) can be an artist using this set!  The images are designed to build...one on the other...to complete an incredibly beautiful and realistic final image.  The individual pieces allow for endless choice...in color and in style.  But...if you're like me...and you're looking for something more earthy and organic...something where incomplete images take center stage...this set does that, too...and that's what I've done with these flat note cards.  
  

I'm quite taken with flat note cards lately...so I created them two sizes...and rounded the corners...and then...heat embossing.  I love it.  I love it so.  Seriously.  And it was perfect...in gold...for the rose and feather images and for the sentiments.  I haven't use the most detailed rose or feather stamps...or the least detailed...but I've used those in between images for the incomplete final look I wanted.  For a bit of sparkle I've added some sequins from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit...and that product focus...the Love Blossoms DSP Stack papers...so lovely as envelop liners for the larger cards and as envelopes for the smaller cards.   
Oh...I made a few more...because there's no such thing as too many note cards!

Here they all are...held together with a bit of the Blushing Bride satin ribbon I was so excited to find in the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.
