Approaching Perfection

Stampin Up Approaching Perfection

I don’t know about you, but I have a Designer Series Paper hoarding problem.  For some crazy reason, it is always so hard to make that first cut.  As a result of this, I end up having boxes and boxes of retired Designer Series Paper that never gets used.  I used to think that I needed to save it in case I decide to use it in one of my stamp classes.  I can’t use that excuse anymore since I am not holding any classes.  Therefore, I have decided to dedicate all my posts this week to making simple cards using Designer Series Paper and a sentiment.

This first card I made is using the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up!® 2020/2021 Annual Catalog.  I used the Night Of Navy polka dot piece for the background and the Purple Posy piece for the balloon.  The balloon and string are part of the Happy Dies which is also in the Annual Catalog.  Can you imagine using a brand new, uncut piece of DSP just for a small balloon?  Really.  Hoarding is a sickness.

I cut two pieces of cardstock (one Night Of Navy and one in Basic White) using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  The sentiment is from a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Approaching Perfection.  You can get this stamp set for FREE if you purchase the Playing With Patterns DSP, the Stitched Nested Labels and a pack of Basic White cardstock!  Everyone loves FREE!

Stayed tuned for Wednesday’s and Friday’s posts for more cards using my Designer Series Paper.  I am determined to use this beautiful paper more often so you will see more of it in the future.

  1. I agree that hoarding DSP is a sickness. I have gotten better, mostly because I have run out of places to store all my retired. This is a great masculine card and “no”, I can’t imagine cutting a piece of DSP for that little balloon

  2. So first – this is such a fun card! I love the DSP with the balloon, and that sentiment is perfect. And second – is there a 12-step program for DSP hoarders? Because I’m in! (“Hi, I’m Buffy and I’m a DSP hoarder.”)
