As soon as I saw the new Occasions catalog, I fell in love with the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

Petal Passions DSP

This paper is just gorgeous!  Of course I am partial to black and white.  This paper is wonderful on its own, but today I want to show you three ways that you can color this paper.  You are limited only by your imagination!

All of these cards have the same lay out and measurements.  The card base is standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The layer of patterned paper is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

Petal Passions DSP alternative

Here are the three cards all using the Petal Passion patterned paper.

Petal Passion with sponging

This first card has been colored using a sponge and Bermuda Bay ink.  The stamp set used here is the Petal Palette set along with the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  The sentiment is from the same set.  Don't you just love the font!  The flowers were colored in with the light and dark Bermuda Bay Blends and the light and dark Old Olive Blends.

Petal Passion with markers

The paper for this card has been colored with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Berry Burst.  It's so easy just to color in the dots.  The stamp set used for this card is Picture Perfect Birthday.  Don't you just love the noise makers.  Fussy cut them.

Petal Passion with Blends

This paper was colored with Blends.  It's so easy to do, but does take a little time.  I used the light and dark Rich Razzleberry, the light and dark Pink Pirouette, and the light Old Olive.  This card also uses the Petal Palette stamp set and the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.

Petal Passion card trio

So you have three different techniques with very different results.  I think this is a paper you will have to have!
