Designer Series Paper – What’s New at Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop

Welcome! I am happy that you are joining us for our hop today. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Today we will be featuring the Designer Series Papers from the Annual Catalog.
Hopefully these will get you inspired, as Stampin’ Up! has their Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP sale going on this month! So, take a look, I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared today.

When I looked back and saw I used the Garden Impressions 6×6 DSP for last month’s hop, and thought I’d like to share it in a different way. You may look at this paper and think flowers, but guess what! The flip sides of the flower designs have some pretty cool patterns, that don’t have to be made into flower cards!

So, here is what I came up with, it kind of looks like an abstract painting of a night sky.

It reminds me of another pack of Designer Series Paper – the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, which does have paper with stars on it! For my version, I added a few stars myself with some Whisper White Craft ink and the stars from the Little Twinkle Stamp Set. I also used some Smokey Slate with more stars for the circle with the sentiment. I stamped off once to make it much lighter.
The sentiment and the cute silver flourishes came from the Stitched Seasons Framelits and Blended Seasons Stamp Set – which will be available as a special Limited Time Offer next month, or you can get it early if you don’t already have a Demonstrator and you join my team.

Here you can see I finished it off with some Polka Dot ribbon, Silver Baker’s Twine, and of course Wink of Stella. I love that this can be a great card for anyone, and that you don’t have to make flowery cards with the flower paper! That’s the awesomeness of the Designer Series Papers… TWO sides. YAY!

I hope you enjoyed my card today, showcasing how easy it is to use the DSP as a main element to a card, as well as showing off some of those beautiful patterns on the back.

   

Please take a moment to leave a comment to let me know how you liked my project or ask me any questions about how I created it.

Global Stamping Friends – Home Decor

Hi everyone!

It’s time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, and it really is global!! This hops around every month on the first Friday. There are folks all around the world joining this, so please take a look at all the fun stuff people have to share. Each month is a different theme, and this month it’s Home Decor!

I needed to step out of my card comfort zone for this one, but I’m glad I did! I decided to make a wall hanging picture. Actually, it could be on a table, or the wall. This first picture is the table version.

I’ve used something brand new in this, too! Stampin’ Up has a special Limited Time only bundle available for Demonstrators this month, and it will be available for customers next month. (Contact me if you want to know how to get this!)
The stamp set is Blended Seasons, and the bundle includes the Stitched Seasons Framelits. Also available will be a new set of Watercolor pencils, which I used to color the images in my frame.
Here are some of the fun new colors all blended together on the flowers and leaves:

I used the framelits to cut the background piece from vellum. I layered lots and lots of leaves and stems also from the framelits, in Garden Green and Granny Apple Green. For some extra shine, I used the Copper Foil paper, some Copper metallic thread, as well as some of the metallic sequins.
After I put it all together, I thought it could use just a bit more artsy-shine, so I added an additional border and layered it on top of the frame itself! I thought it looked pretty cool. Now it has to go on the wall, since I extended the frame at the bottom, heh.

If you take a closer look, you will notice the awesome wooden background is actually Designer Series Paper! I took some pieces of the Wood Textures 6×6 DSP and sliced them up into planks. I made varying widths and lengths, then put them together like flooring. I’m trying to figure out if I’m more exited about the pretty flowers or the wood floor! <squeee!> And, this pack of DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Promotion this month!

Once I calmed down a bit, I realized Wink of Stella would work wonders on the flowers to finish it off. Super sparkles going on in this work of art.

I hope you like this project, I really did. I can’t wait to see what all the others came up with this month.


Don’t forget to RSVP to my Card Making classes, the next two are up on my calendar (one is this coming Saturday)!  You can also check out my online store for the specials this month, such as the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale, and the Free set of ink pads when you join my team! 🙂


Please take some time to continue on with the rest of the hop, you will be heading over to Kimberley’s blog next, and don’t forget to leave some nice comments to let us know what you think!
Happy Stamping!

Petal Palette Bundle

Hi folks!

Here’s one of the new bundles available in the new Occasions Catalog. It’s the stamp set Petal Palette and the Petals & More thinlits. There are a few more products in the Petal Passion Suite, and they all coordinate!
Also included are metal embellishments, organza ribbon, a pair of embossing folders, as well as the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I’ve used that DSP with the bundle in this card:

I love that the DSP is black and white, so you can add as much or as little color you like. In this case, I added some bright colors from the Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  In the background are some leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, both stamped and cut out using the thinlits. Here is what it looked like when I first colored it, before blending the colors together:

Super simple, I just scribbled some colors that I wanted, then blended them together with the aqua painter – like a paint brush. It doesn’t matter if you overlap colors, that’s just going to give you better mixed colors.

I hope you liked this version. I originally got the idea from Patty Bennett, who did a video on watercoloring using some notecards with the same colors and basic layout.  Here are some of my versions of those, using some ribbon and cardstock to border the DSP, and the Whisper White Notecards – which are a bit smaller than the standard card size.

The good news is that because it’s Sale-A-Bration time, if you purchase the Petal Palette Bundle, which already includes a discounted price, you can also earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! How cool is that!

Click over to my online store to go shopping, or contact me if you have any questions!
Don’t forget to use the current Hostess Code if your order is under $150. It’s always up at the top of my blog! Right now it’s XF7TYZQX.

Thanks for stopping by!
