Fun With Pleased As Punch DSP and Small Bloom Punch

Let's jump right in to today's project!  I love this sketch from Splitcoaststampers because it's perfect for using my Designer Series Paper in large pieces.  I'm definitely not a paper hoarder and yet I still have so much to use because so many pretty ones keep coming out!  In fact, just yesterday I ordered the two new Sale-A-Bration paper packs (So Very Vellum and Flowering Foils)!

Splitcoaststampers card sketch challenge 791

I pulled out the fantastically upbeat and cheerful Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper for this card.  Those rainbow stripes just GRAB me and I LOVE that they are not the typical ROY G BIV.  The adorable sentiment is from Under My Umbrella, a set in the Mini Catalog.

I used the Small Bloom Punch to make a pile of flowers in Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, and Petal Pink.  To get their wonderfully textured look, try this trick: put the flowers on a Stampin' Pierce Mat and press down in their centers with either a pencil eraser or retracted ball-point pen tip.  Then scrunch the flowers in your hands repeatedly until they are textured as you like.  The cardstock may even split but that just adds to the look!

Aren't the patterns in this pack so fun?    The Small Bloom Punch punches out the flowers you see on the 4th sheet from the right.  You can also use the Tulip Builder Punch, Umbrella Builder Punch, and Heart Punch Pack with this paper.
