Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 9

Some images of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper coordinate with our cutting tools. A couple of days back I showed you how to use your DSP with punches. Part 9 of my Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper shows you how to use your dies with your DSP to simplify your creative process.

Die Cut it

I’ve used one of the leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies to die cut the Forever Greenery DSP. These have been layered on top of more layers of this beautiful paper and some of the special Gold Laser Cut paper to create this card. Although it looks like it would take some time to make, it was really simple as the only stamping on it is the sentiment. I really let the Designer Series Paper do the work for me.

This cheerful Christmas card uses the Trimming the Town DSP on it’s several layers. The house and the trees have been die cut from the Designer Series Paper.

I’ve added a stamped sentiment along with other elements from the Trimming the Town Suite. Using coordinating products from one suite makes creating cards so easy as Stampin’ Up! have already done the hard work of colour matching and product coordination for us crafters.

Designer Series Paper featured on my projects today are available at a 15% discount until 31st October. Don’t miss out on the chance to save on these beautiful papers .

Colour Combo Blog Hop – June 2020

Hello and welcome to our Colour Combo Blog Hop. I’m Rochelle Laird-Smith and I live in Melbourne, Australia. If it is your first time visiting my blog, thank you for stopping by. I really hope you enjoy your time here and visit often. To all my regular subscribers, thank you for reading and interacting with me. 

This was another colour combination I wouldn’t have really put together but that’s the idea of a challenge, right? I’m really glad for it because it stretches me to think outside the square.

I took to one of my favourite techniques for this card – watercolouring, together with the Forever Fern bundle. You can get this bundle for free during the month of June. Find out the details at the end of this post. 

I started by stamping the larger leaves in Sahara Sand, stamped off. Then I watercoloured these in with my Water Painter in Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo. It’s best to start light and then increase the intensity of colour. I kept my brush tip just damp so I could create the lines on the leaves.

To create the Flirty Flamingo leaves, I spritzed the Shimmery White cardstock with water. Then I inked the stamp with Flirty Flamingo and stamped on the wet cardstock. This gives a different water coloured look to the previous leaf. 

I laid this all on a circle embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp and Well Written dies. I have just purchased these. It is a 2 set stamp set so you get a lot of sentiments. Combine it with the die cuts, like I have and you can get several combinations.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. All products I have used on this project are listed at the bottom of this post. I hope my project inspires you to try different colour combinations that you might not usually try. Why not give this one a try? Next on the hop is Sigrid Joch.

aWow Blog Hop – Inspiration from the New Annual Catalogue

Hi,

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Victoria, Australia. The Around the World on Wednesday (or aWOW) Blog Hop is made up of demonstrators representative of all the Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. This month our guest is the talented Cindy Schuster. So I hope you enjoy your journey with us this Wednesday. 

AWOW Blog Hop Header

This is such an exciting time in the Stampin’ Up! family where we get to play with all our new products from the brand new Annual catalogue. Have you got a favourite product or maybe it’s several favourites? I have several suites and stamp sets that I love. However, I did have to make a choice and it happened to be one of the products in the suite that steered me towards the decision I made. 

The Forever Greenery Suite. Aaaah, there’s green and then there’s Forever Greenery! Isn’t it beautiful? It’s got shades of green and blue. So what do you think might have just tipped me in it’s direction? Those Gold Laser Cut papers- yes, they are just beautiful. Apart from that, I am loving the smaller size. At 9¾” x 10″ it’s much easier to handle than the previous laser cut papers which were at 12″x12″. 

I have incorporated all the products in this suite on my cards including the beautiful Forever Greenery embossing folders. These will fit in our soon-to-be-released Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I’ve combined the gold laser cut elements with some stamped leaves. The stamp was inked up in Soft Sea Foam and then inked around the edges using a sponge dauber in Pretty Peacock to achieve the dual-colours.  

On the next card I used the debossed side of the embossing folder and added some colour using a sponge dauber. Those Gold Hoops are so cute and add a lovely detail to projects. The back panel has been embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder. This actually creases the cardstock – just like old paper! I love it. 

This gorgeous wreath is the centrepiece of my third card. I’ve added some die cut elements including some dual-coloured stamped leaves of Old olive and Bermuda Bay, the same way I did on the previous card. 

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you come back soon. I hope you have been inspired by my cards and I would appreciate you leaving me a comment as I do love hearing from you.  All the products I have used are listed at the bottom of this post. Click on any of the images to be taken direct to my online store.
