Hey there! While Petal Palette is my #1 favorite from the Occasions Catalog, the number two spot is taken by the Picture Perfect stamp set. In fact, I love everything in the entire Picture Perfect Party Suite on pages 4 & 5 of the Occasions Catalog!
Before Christmas I had a chance to sit down one day to create with the suite. I used a color combo suggested by the colors in the Picture Perfect Party 6 x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack: Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, and Whisper White! I used the Happy Birthday Thinlet Die to cut out a Bermuda Bay greeting to layer over the designer paper that looks like confetti sprinkles. I embossed the white background layer with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I cut a second greeting from Berry Burst to layer under the Bermuda Bay one for lift and more color interest.
While not part of the Picture Perfect Party Suite, I added Tutti-Fruitti Adhesive-Backed Sequins because they are fun and easy! Did you notice the words "adhesive-backed"? All you have to do is slide the tip of your Paper Snips or the end of your Paper-Piercing Tool under the sequins and transfer to your project! I LOVE these!
Inside I stamped the Picture Perfect Birthday sentiment with Bermuda Bay ink, then created a mini custom ink pad by dripping a few drops of Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst ink onto a folded baby wipe so I could ink the confetti stamp to stamp around the words.
I stamped the three different candles that are part of Picture Perfect Birthday with Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst ink, stamped the flames with So Saffron, and then added the yellow Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed sequins over the flames. I LOVE the coordination between suites in the Occasions Catalog, as well as the way they also coordinate with Annual Catalog products!
