I have been playing with all of the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper the last few days for my Paper Share.  They are all gorgeous, as always.  But I have to say that my favorite for now is the Online Exclusive Hello Irresistible.  The paper is so pretty and could be framed just as it is.

I said this paper could be framed and that is pretty much what I did for today’s card.  The colors on this piece of Hello Irresistible Designer Series paper are so pretty.  And I love the variegated shading of the mix of colors.  And this mix led me to two unusual colors for the “frame” of this piece.

The two colors of card stock I chose are not listed on the paper pack.  These two pieces were on my desk after cutting for a class.  And it surprised me how well they look together.  Then adding the DSP piece was very surprising.  And in a good way!  Flirty Flamingo is a brighter color obviously, but I believe the Copper Clay brings out the darker tones in the DSP.  And the Wild Wheat really matches the goldish shade in the DSP.  I call it a Win.  Please let me know what you think.

Stamps and Punches

The paper is the star of the show here, but I did add a small sentiment and in a fun way.  The sentiment is from the Sentimental Park stamp set.  I wanted just a small and simple sentiment to not detract from the paper.  This “Love” stamped in the Wild Wheat ink was perfect.

To add a little something extra, I looked for a fun punch to use for the sentiment.  I finally came across the Petal Park Punch.  The larger flower fit the word, and also the flowers on the card.  All I had to add was just a bit of curl to the petals on the flower.


I added the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Twine in Copper Clay in place of a ribbon.  I like the idea of twine with flowers.  They seem to go together.  And this Jute, even though thicker than I expected, was very easy to work with.  It was also a perfect grounding spot for the flower sentiment.

To complete the card there must be bling.  I used the new 2023-2025 In Color Dots.  The Copper Clay small one is on the sentiment flower.  And two of the Wild Wheat smaller ones are added to the two largest flowers in the paper.
