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.

I’ve got some cards to show you today with the Wrapped in Plaid suite which is probably my favourite suite in the catalogue. What I love is the traditional colours and the simplicity of the punch. My cards use the same simple layout and are very quick to create.
I used the Pine Tree Punch from the Perfectly Plaid bundle (Item #151143) to punch out the trees from the Designer Series Paper. These were then mounted with Dimensionals onto a 2″ circle from matching cardstock (colours I have used here are Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce). Then I added a 2 1/4″ Gold Foil circle.
I stamped the sentiment in the coordinating ink on Whisper White cardstock 14.2 cm x 9.9 cm. The strip of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (Item #149596) has been cut to 14.8 cm x 5.2 cm.
These cards took me minutes to make and would be great to mass produce. The addition of the Gold Foil adds an extra festive feel to match with the gold on the DSP.

I’ve got a note card set for you today using a lovely set of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes from the new cataloue.
Both the envelopes and note cards have a dainty scalloped edging and there are 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This gives you 20 note cards and envelopes for $14.00 which makes it .70 cents a set.
Decorating these were easy with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The colours were just perfect for these note cards. I used the same simple layout on all the cards.
The other day I spent a bit of time fussy cutting several images from these papers. I mixed and matched the birds with my cards today.
I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my frames. For the bottom layer I first tried Basic Black but felt that was too harsh so opted for Basic Gray and liked this much better as it was a softer look.
First card is Old Olive and I’ve added the lovely floral paper on the base.
This is the Light Pink card and for my die cut square I used Petal Pink which coordinated with the paper I had used for the background. Are you loving the designs on the paper as much as I am?
Terracotta Tile card base but I did my die cut square in Calypso Coral. Can you tell? Someone didn’t read the back of the pack very well!
A Balmy Blue card with a pretty blue bird to match.
The Gingham Gala sequins came in just the right colours to embellish these 4 cards. Stampin’ Up! are spot on for coordination. I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays and Detailed with Love (retired but I had missed moving it out of my currents) stamp sets for the sentiments to cover a variety of occasions.
All products used to create these quick cards are listed below, where you can shop at my online store or contact me to place an order.
I have chosen the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to create my cards today. The card sketch I have chosen is a simple one which allows you to layer your paper and display the different designs. As this paper is bright and has a lot of design I didn’t add a lot extra. Keeping it simple worked well and showed off the pretty paper. The coordinating colours for this paper are Call me Clover, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White.
On each pack of Designer Series Paper, the coordinating colours are printed on the back of the pack. I always keep this piece of cardstock or write the colours from the sticker onto the piece of cardstock before storing them. This helps with easy colour coordination when making projects.
To offset the busy patterns, I have added a panel of Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. This adds just enough texture without making it too busy. The sentiments use the Label Me Pretty stamp set. Add some enamel dots and these cards are very quick to put together.
