Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 10

Today is the final in my series on Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper. There are several more that I could share but I’ve chosen one to highlight that you would have seen throughout this series. Layer your DSP to create coordinated projects. Use the sheets from the same pack to make it even easier to coordinate. Adding layers can make your focal elements really stand out and also adds depth to projects.

Layer it up

Use your Designer Series Paper as a matte layer or on top of a cardstock layer. Layering different patterns which complement each other creates beautiful effects.

On this Christmas card I used the classic gingham design as my background and then matte a layer with all the woodland animals in the foreground.

A deer from the North Pole Wonder die cut from Cinnamon Cider Velveteen Paper was added to match the DSP.

This is another simple card which, this time, uses the In Good Taste DSP as the matte layer. I added a bold sentiment from the fun Ridiculously Awesome stamp set.

A bit of sponging in Balmy Blue, a bow, a few sequins and this is a quick make card. Don’t miss out the DSP sale which ends 31st October. Grab yourself a bargain, shop a gift for a friend, stock up and save. All orders over $50 are eligible for Stamping Flair Loyalty Points.

Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 6

Today’s fun tip for using our Designer Series Paper is all about texture. I am a huge fan of embossing folders as they add instant texture to projects with very little effort. With a single run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine Stampin’ Up!’s various embossing folders will create a raised design on your cardstock or DSP.

Emboss it

This sympathy card uses the Peony Garden suite. I embossed a piece of the marbled paper with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. Add a stamped and die cut image, simple sentiment, ribbon and you’ve got a quick card which has texture to it as well.

The By the Dock stamp set is a really fun set and makes great men’s cards. I created a ripple look for the water theme by running some In Good Taste DSP through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. The kayak was coloured in Stampin’ Blends with the jetty stamped in Early Espresso on Soft Suede cardstock.

Don’t you just love the little fish in the Artistry Blooms DSP water? I coloured the fish with Stampin’ Blends directly over the Designer Series Paper and the colour showed up well over it.

Simply Created with Memories & More Cards

Sunflowers, Memories & More, 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue

The Flowers for Every Season Suite is bright, cheerful and really captured my attention as I opened the Annual Cataogue. From Pages 10-13 you will see all the products that are in the suite in a range of colours. I always love the Memories & More Card packs and the Flowers for Every Season pack is so pretty. The best part about is that you get all 5 new In-Colours in the colour palette so it’s a really good taster of our new colours. 

I used the 1½” punch to create the corners on the card in the centre which coordinates with the printed corners of the card. 

I have added some Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste pack which, I reckon, coordinates with every card – ok not EVERY card – but nearly every card.  With so many textures and a mix of colours, you can really maximize it’s uses. 

These Memories & More cards are great for quick & easy projects and scrapbooking. They also coordinate well with a pack of our new In-Colour Designer Series Paper for even more options.
