Ornate Garden DSP Coloured Three Ways

Are you as in love with the 2020-2021 annual catalogue as I am?  Tonight's blog hop is full of projects that use the gorgeous products from this catalogue to inspire you in your creativity.

I've decided to focus on the Ornate Garden Suite and in particular the Designer Series Paper, isn't it divine?

The two gold leaf sheets pictured here can be left as they are for a stunning gleaming background, or you can colour them up using your Blends which is what I've done here in my three cards in this post.  I've even shot a 1 minute video to show you my colouring in action - read on for that!


In this first card I used my paper snips to cut along a line of flowers and leaves to create these corner pieces.  I then coloured them up using my Blends and remembered to colour in the background as well so that it created an entirely coloured piece to stick onto my cardstock layer.  

You can see the shadow underneath the flowers.  I wanted to give the effect of the flowers almost floating but without the depth of a dimensional.  So I layered them onto some thick Whisper White cardstock which was cut smaller only on the intricate side to give this effect (don't do it for the edge of the layer side because it's only paper and it will risk tearing at some point - plus, you don't need the floating effect there).

This card used a sentiment combination from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.


This was a really fun card to make up. It's just a square of the DSP which I coloured using all different Blends and then just kept it simple by finishing it off with the little tag stamp from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  To pick up on the gold line in the DSP I used my Wink of Stella pen on the sentiment to make it sparkle as well (and inside I stamped Happy Birthday).  

To see me colour up this card click the video link at the bottom of the photos.


This card uses the same DSP sheet as the first card but what a difference when you use different colours!  This one I layered onto some Poppy Parade and dimensionals and finished with a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.


Now that you've seen the Ornate Garden DSP in action, hop through the rest of the blogs below to see more inspiring projects using products from the new catalogue.
