For all my cards I used papers from the Alluring Blooms 6×6 Paper Pack( ALTN | SSS ). You get two pages for each design so you can use one page as a background and cut out things to pop up from the other identical page. The pages are so stunning you can just frame them to decorate your craft room!

  2. Vicky, these cards are stunning in the depth of colour that is on the paper! I’ve never had a paper pack that allowed me to cut up to make focal images on a card. I can see why you’ve used the one you did. Wow! Thanks for the inspiration & video!

  25. I really appreciate you playing with the patterned papers. Sometimes with just a flipthrough I have a hard time envisioning what exactly I might do with them. However, when you use them for cards like this, I have a much better sense of their potential. Also, I had never thought of using the second print in a paper pack as a sort of decoupage for the first print. What a clever idea! Thanks for sharing with us.

  26. I love the new patterned papers. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas for using gorgeous patterned paper. Your cards are beautiful and inspiring.

  28. Wow!! Those are stunning! Didn’t think of using the patterned papers that way and they look awsesome!!

  30. Love the second card with the bright colored flowers and the black and white background… stunning cards!!

  31. Gorgeous projects. I’ve told myself I didn’t need any more patterned paper, but the sets from this release are so beautiful. Maybe I do need more…
