Purple Park - Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park

   I'm squeaking in just under the wire for the Paper Players challenge today with these fun colors.  I love purple but definitely think it can be hard to create with sometimes.  And this color challenge has 2 different shades of purple!  I like the end result though and it's a good use of the Sentimental Park bundle.  I just love those floral labels!

  The Tea Boutique DSP is the first stop for creating a nice background for the stamping elements.  I used 2 patterns from this pack for my card front.  I wrapped 2 lengths of crinkle seam binding ribbon around the panels before adhering them to the card base.

  I stamped the flower outline in Orchid Oasis and then filled it in with Highland Heather.  The stem is stamped in Parakeet Party and then filled in with the same color but stamped off once.  I die cut the stem, flowers and 2 of the label shapes from Sentimental Park dies.  I layered the plain label over the detailed floral one and then popped the flower pieces on dimensionals.

  The sentiment is from Flowering Tulips and is embossed in white onto Orchid Oasis cardstock and then die cut with a Stylish Shapes circle die.  I popped that up on dimensionals as well and then added a little cluster of flowers stamped in the same colors as the larger flower.  This little flower cluster is found in the coordinating set Petal Park.  I got the whole Regency Park Suite and it is well worth it!  See it all on pages 30-33 in the mini catalog.

  The final details for this card are the mini adhesive pearls in the center of the flowers and then a double fork bow in crinkled seam binding ribbon to the side of the label.

  Thanks to the Paper Players DT for these fun colors to use on these dreary winter days!

  1. LOL, I find purple a challenge too, but this is perfectly lovely! Great sketch and a beautiful way to use these florals! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Paper Players!

  2. Hi, Amanda. I completely understand your comment about using purple! For some reason my stash of purple papers and scraps seem to be limited, compared to green or blue - maybe because I'm not as drawn to tones of that color. Hadn't really thought about it. Well, I am drawn to what you've done on your very pretty card! Thank you for bringing it to our challenge at The Paper Players. Xoxo, Fran

  3. Amanda, this is so pretty! I love all those beautiful flowers!!!! You certainly made my colors shine at The Paper Players this week!

  4. I love this Amanda! Great use of the colours for your split background, and also the white panel - I love the diecut detail and the pretty purple flowers really stand out against it. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at The Paper Players this week!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
