Not sure how this works.. but it seems when I open a new pack of Stampin' Up! designer paper it automatically becomes my new favorite!! :) So for now, "Whole Love of Lovely" is my new favorite! I hope you like these pretty floral cards I created with the designer paper, the Lovely Words and Support Ribbon framelits, new ombre ribbon and the Glitter dots!
With everything from bold stripes, to polka dots, and fruit to flowers, this Whole Lot of Lovely paper pack has something for everyone!! And who could resist this gorgeous color palette!??

This chart also shows you the coordinating ink and cardstock colors that go with each pack of paper.
above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!" ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)
These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top. For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.
Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo. All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.
Each card is embellished with the "hugs" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits, and the flower and leaf from the Support Ribbon framelits, (companion to the Ribbon of Courage stamp set). The flower is die cut with Calypso Coral cardstock, and the leaves are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. Each flower is embellished with a Glitter enamel dot in the center!
Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.
When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!
Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!? I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create. What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?
Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral
and 3/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon: Flirty Flamingo

Thank you for joining me today! I hope these cards inspired you! I love them!! :)
