Here's a hint for you before you begin your stamping adventure with this set...the outline image & solid image overlay quite well--if you care.  If you are just enjoying the stamping--don't worry about it but if you do want to do a very close overlay, mark both stamps with a black marker so that you know how to align them quickly...below are the 2 stamps which I have marked 2 spots on each stamp. This way when I'm stamping I can quickly locate the exact overlay.

Check Out the Secret Design in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Today we're going to Check Out the Secret Design in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper! We're usually so busy checking out the pretty colorful flowers in a pack like Pansy Petals that we miss the secret design hiding on the back side...that's what happened when I turned over the sheet with the pretty tiny pansies--I discovered this lovely Bumblebee design just asking to be used on a card...

Quite Meadow w pansy

And what's the best thing about this card (beside the silhouette, the bees, and the designer paper)? It's the fact that this card (without a specific greeting) can be used for any occasion--for what occasion would this not be appropriate? So not only is it an easy design to create, it's also quick--this means you can create quite a few of these and have a ready stash with that important occasion arrives and you are short on time!

For a card like this with a striking image a good thing to remember (besides looking for the cool secret designs in designer paper) is to use a background paper that is subdued and a smallish print--this way your background won't overpower your focal point--it will enhance it but not take center stage.

I'll give you the step by step directions below followed by the Supply List so you can order your supplies to create this card.
