Prima Annalee and Petaloo Blooms

Good morning sweet blog friends, today I have a card to share that I made using Prima’s Annalee collection of designer papers, together with Petaloo Fuchsia blooms and small yellow flowers I made with Spellbinder’s Dahlia dies.

It’s been rainy and overcast, I’m sorry to say I wasn’t able to get good shots with natural lighting and I intensely dislike using flash. The pictures have either a blue or yellow cast to them. One of these days, I’ll get to some photography classes.

I love the pop of color the fuchsia blooms provide. I used the new Petaloo Fuchsia Blooms and Petaloo Fuchsia Mini’s that The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store recently got in the store. I’m so in love with these beautiful flowers. The Petaloo blooms are made of thin mulberry paper, making for exceptionally realistic flowers.

Petaloo flowers are simply gorgeous. I took this close up to give you a closer look at the edges of the petals. I’ve got to learn that technique!

I love the Annalee designer papers from Prima! If you like the collection, head over to the store, Sharon only has a few left. I added a couple of Darsi Bruno’s Shabby Chic Pink collection of stick pins, I think they are a beautiful compliment to this design. Spellbinder’s Fancy Lattice was placed under the butterflies, along with cheesecloth that I dyed with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. (All shopping links are provided at the bottom of the post.)

I made the small yellow flowers with Spellbinder’s Dahlia dies, size #2. I sponged Scattered Straw onto the flowers and spritzed with water. I pierced holes in the flowers’ centers and adhered stamens. Glass beads were adhered to the larger butterfly, as well as to the card.

That’s it for today peeps. I’m so happy you stopped by to visit! I’ll be back soon with another design to share.

Paper Hugs,

    Love this shabby chic card of yours!! So many things to take in and yet it feels like they belong to each other!! A great and gorgeous card, Jerri!!

    I love your use of multiple layers and textures and vivid, bold colors paired with soft and delicate touches. How you pull all of it together is your creative genius. It makes the card come alive.

    I tend to use textiles very liberally on both cards and scrapbook pages so for me, it is heartwarming and inspiring to see how you incorporate laces and netting and other materials in your work.

    The size of the flowers and weight of heavy lace make most of these cards very difficult to give using traditional envelopes. I tend to make coordinating boxes to put them in when I want to give them to someone and especially when I need to mail them. How do you handle this with your cards?

    Hi Jerri,
    WOW! What a wonderful rainbow of gorgeousness to cheer us up on a dreary morning (Yes it’s raining in the UK too….nothing new there then! Lol!) Managed to find all the range of Petaloo over here for when I don’t have time make beautiful blooms like yours. Hope the weather soon cheers up for you Jerri.

    Love Sheila xx
