#123- HSS Technique Challenge- Paper Pleating


Happy Tuesday and Welcome to Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge this week-

This weeks challenge is Paper Pleating!!!


I have never tried the paper pleating before so was excited to give it a try!!!!


The paper pleating made my think Girly- ruffles, pearls and softness!!!

So decided to use my embossing folder again- elegant bouquet- Love the softness of sponging

the embossed image!!!  Used sponge daubers and wisteria wonder and gumball green. 

Then I used champagne shimmer spray over the top to give it a soft sparkle!!!

Then for my accents-

wisteria wonder dsp for paper pleating

vanilla seam binding ruffled with matching bow

beautiful wings embosslit die with wisteria wonder and vellum- the vellum adds a softness

Pearls to finish it off!!! 

I think the paper pleating added just the right touch to my card- Perfect Girly Card!!!

Great technique for dsp- Love the look!!!


So go and check out the inspiration from the Design Team and then come and play along!!!

I had so much fun trying something new- can't wait to see your paper pleating projects!!!

Happy Stamping, Diane




Gorgeous and that is so smart to use the embossing folder as the central image. I would not have thought to add some color to it and it takes on a whole new look (and function). Love it! Love the colors and the softness of the ribbon and scallops.

This card is so will you ever give it away? My eyes want to go to that wonderful pleating and the pulled (pleated) ribbon, but I love the sponged embossing. So soft, and so stunning. Kudos on a fabulous card!
