True Love Designer Series Paper is in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and it is one of my favorite papers. Why? Because it is black and white paper. I know black and white paper can seem boring by itself but I actually love the look of it because then you can add a pop of color somewhere to make it stand out. What is even better is you can color it the DSP using your Stampin Blends to go with any project you are making.
For this card I first cut out the flowers from the True Love DSP and colored them using my Dark and Light Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin Blends. You can see how quickly this change the look of the paper. I used Basic Black for the card base and layered a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White cardstock that I had embossed with my Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Then I took a 3.5″ x 2.5″ piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper and layered that on top of a piece of Basic Black card stock I had cut out using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly set. Then I adhered the flowers on top.
After this I stamped the sentiment, Hello, using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder on a piece of Basic Black cardstock. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Good Morning Magnolia. This stamp set will be retiring on May 3rd. The True Love Designer Series Paper will retire on June 30th (or earlier if the supplies run out). You really need to get this paper because you can use it any way by just coloring it.
I love black and white DSP, esp when paired with yellows. Wonderful card Susan! These simple polka dots end up being so elegant
This is s beautiful, Susan. The colors really pop when paired with that paper. (And you’re on a wonderful roll with your DSP!)
