Paper Trail Blog Hop Marches on with Stella

This month, the talented artists on the Paper Trail Blog Hop have teamed up to showcase projects created using the Stella paper collection from the new Spring/Summer 2012 Close to My Heart Idea Book. If you have arrived here from Pam's blog, P-Inks then you're on the right trail.

From neutrals of cocoa and colonial white to rich hues of lagoon, olive,sunset, and tulip, this collection is the favorite of many paper collectors. The Stella Complements are some of my favorite as they are adhesive-backed canvas images that add such texture to a project.

I gathered together a paper pack and a package of complements along with some wide chocolate-striped grosgrain ribbon, some mocha opaques, and a bottle of stardust glitz glitter gel. Let the fun begin!
Included in the Wishes how-to book, are a number of card workshop patterns and the cards pictured here are examples from one of those patterns. In the bold 6" x 6" size, these cards make such a statement for a special someone.

Stamped with a variety of sentiments, this collection of all-occasion cards can be completed in little time. Some of the canvas complements were slightly frayed using the edge of my scissors and others were sponged with a bit of cocoa ink.

Now hop on over to Vicki's blog, Wizard's Hangout and enjoy her Stella-inspired projects!
