Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Designer Series Paper!

Welcome to our October Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects using Designer Series Paper, DSP for short! There are two kinds of DSP Patterned and Speciality.

You may have arrived here from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (#153517) because I rarely use dark colors and I wanted to challenge myself. Do you challenge yourself?

I started my card on a Basic Black card base with a layer of DSP. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690) to cut two layers for the front of the card greeting. The sentiment is from Gorgeous Posies (#153289) and I used Calypso Coral ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (#152479) to complete the front.

The Pretty Peacock paper from the Magic In This Night package makes a beautiful backdrop for the 4 panels. Each panel and layer was cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I accidentally used retired DSP (the leaves) for 2 of the panels and stamped the rose and leaves from Healing Hugs (#148223).

I finished the card with Happy Birthday from the Here’s A Hug (#149438). I created this card for my Monday Night Mystery Stamping group. They had the clues of what to cut before then and we met by Zoom to put the cards together. It is such a fun way to stay connected while staying apart.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Punches!

Welcome to our September Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring a project using punches!

You may have arrived here from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Beautiful Autumn Bundle (#155189) because it has the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set (#153450) and the Autumn Punch Pack (#153609).

I started my card on a Cajun Craze card base with a layer of crumb cake under a layer of gorgeous paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP (#153520).

I cut a circle in the DSP with the Layering Circle Dies (#151770) and inserted a piece of Very Vanilla cut with the same die. The Very Vanilla is popped up on dimensionals and then surrounded with leaves and acorns stamped in Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake. The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaroon, too.

I finished off the card with two pieces of ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (#153553). They are Copper and Mint Macaron.

August Paper Crafting Blog Hop!

Welcome to our August Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe! Each demonstrator is featuring a different Suite of Products this month!

You may have arrived here from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Whale of Time Suite Collection (#154126).

The Whale of a Time Suite includes:

  • Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
  • Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper
  • Whale of a Time Sequins
  • Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon
  • Whale Punch (10% off)
  • Seabed 3D Embossing Folder
  • To order, add item #154126 to your order

Such a great value, all of the products shown above for $65.50!

I started my card on a Pool Party card base with a layer embossed with Seabed 3D Embossing Folder (#152700) after a circle was cut with the Layering Circles Dies (#151770).

Next, I adhered a piece of Window Sheets (#142314) to the back of the embossed panel. Then I surrounded the opening with Adhesive Foam Strips (#141825) making sure there were no gaps. I then added Whale Of A Time Sequins (#152461) inside the Foam Strips. I carefully pulled off the backing on the Foam Strips and adhered a piece of the Whale Of A Time Designer Series Paper (#152460) and then adhered the panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) supporting the bottom of the panel.

That adorable whale was stamped in Pretty Peacock and punched out with the Whale Punch (#(152699). The water splashes were punched from a scrap of Pretty Peacock. The sentiment from the Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set (#152470) was stamped in Pretty Peacock on a scrap of Granny Apple Green. This card will be headed to my granddaughter!

Isn’t the Whale of a Time DSP adorable?
