Card set with Susan Weckesser papers (Helmar and Green Tara)

Here is a fun little card set I made with the brand new whimsical paper line "Live in Color" by Susan Weckesser (she is also on the Helmar DT and a fellow Canadian designer). I had so much fun designing with a paper style that I don't usually gravitate towards but the colors and sentiments are just so very sweet. Green Tara embellishments were a perfect touch to add to the sweetness of this paper line (details at the end of this post). I used Helmar's Premium Glue for the paper layers, the adhesive runner for the delicate doilies and 450 quick dry for the embellishments. The papers can be purchased through one of Helmar's preferred partners Want2Scrap. They are REALLY thick and great to distress with!

I also used the August Helmar challenge as inspiration. Be sure to enter this month for a change to win some sticky goodies!

Can you spot the staples, buttons, banner and flower frame in my card set? Here is a close up of each to help you spot the challenge details. The first one is a trick, it's just an extra card I made with my scraps after the first 3 were done - I just love pink (and even numbers, LOL)!

Be sure to check out more creations with the paper line during Helmar's cross promotion.

There are also some great newly released Unity Stamps that coordinate with Susan's paper line and they are on sale right now - check it out!

OK one last thing today, my friend, fellow Canadian, and Helmar (and Green Tara) DT mate JJ Sobey is giving away a FABULOUS Faber-Castell (another fantastic Helmar preferred partner) prize pack but hurry, only 2 more days to enter so check it out! Oh I can't even begin to tell you how much fun these products are to play with.
