Oh to think I wasn’t originally going to buy Paisleys & Posies by Stampin’ Up! I resisted at first, but then I kept seeing so many great projects using the coordinating stamps and Paisley Framelits Dies I ended up putting in a sneak order!

I featured this bundle in my monthly card class, which I’ve now moved to the last Wednesday of the month! After seeing the fantastic One Sheet wonder my team lead Michelle Last created in the summer, I thought this would make a great theme for the class. I was right, it went down a treat!

I started off by randomly stamping the Paisleys and Posies in the three colours from this week’s challenge, onto a sheet of A4 Whisper White. Then I cut the sheet into various shapes and sizes to make 6 cards, with enough left over for a tag as well!

My favourite card happened to be the one I’ve shared for this week’s challenge. I love the Smoky Slate card base, topped with the Dapper Denim layer, topped off by the strip of Tangerine Tango over the top! So, I hope you like it too!

  1. I’m with you, Tracy! This set was not at the top of my list when the holiday catalog came out, but I’ve seen so many cool projects done with it as well, that it’s made me stop and take another look at it. I have yet to get it, but projects like yours are about to put me over the edge! Who doesn’t like a one sheet wonder and this set is perfect for that! Superb job with our color challenge this week!

  2. Love your card. I was determined not to purchase this bundle but I am weakening. Your One Sheet Wonder idea is a great one to use for this set.

  3. Your card almost reminds my of high end wrapping paper. Your placement of all the elements with the One Sheet Wonder turned out just lovely!

  4. I’m right with you on this one Tracy – this set didn’t make it onto my pre-order or even wish list, yet following customer requests and the lovely things I’d seen with it I changed my mind and picked it up. A great set for a one sheet wonder – I love the pattern you created with this week’s colours, very classic.
