Designer Series Paper Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today’s Stamp Off Challenge is to use two different designs of Designer Series Paper .  This was hard because my mother always told me to never wear two different patterns together!  You always have to have a solid with a pattern.  I am sure there were a ton of “What Not To Wear” episodes on this matter.  It is a good thing that it is ok to do this on cards!

I decided to use the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  I figured out the two designs I wanted to use but had a hard time figuring out what else to do with it.  I tried different flowers but thought it was too much so I played around with a new set of dies I just got called Hand-Lettered Prose.  I like these dies because the letters are slightly slanted in an elegant font.  The colors in the DSP are Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow so I cut the letters out in Mossy Meadow cardstock.

The ‘Birthday’ stamp is from the stamp set called Piece Of Cake.  The whole stamp says Happy Birthday so I masked off the word “Happy”.  To do this, all I did was cover the word “happy” with a piece of tape, ink the stamp and then pull the tape off.  That way only the word “Birthday” had ink on it.  The hardest part is remembering to take off the tape.  If you forget, it makes a mess (ask me how I know this!).  I have ruined many a piece of cardstock because I forgot!

I felt like the card needed a little something else.  I looked for some embellishments in Mossy Meadow and I didn’t have any.  No worries though!  I took my Dark Mossy Meadow Blend and colored 3 of the green sequins from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  That is one thing I love about the Blends.  You can use them to color any non-porous material such as the sequins.

  1. Susan, yep, great minds. But I love the fact that we used different sheets of the DPS. Your card is beautiful and I love the use of the letters. Also use of the DSP to line them up straight!


  2. I used to love watching ‘What Not To Wear’! (and thinking I could be featured on an episode or two!) You’ve combined these two patterns perfectly – great card & layout.
