Hello everyone. Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge is to use Designer Series Paper. I love this challenge because, as you know, I have been on a kick to use my DSP more often. My goal is to use an entire pack of paper before it retires. Who am I kidding?? That won’t happen but I am going to try.
I am using the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card (again). I specifically chose this because, not only does it have beautiful designs but the Pansy Dies that coordinate with the Pansy Patch Stamp Set also cut out many of the images in the DSP! The only stamping I did on this entire card is the sentiment. The pansies and the leaves were all cut out of the paper with the dies. It can’t be much easier than that!
To make this card I first cut out a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Basic White card base. I love the checks on this sheet. The color is one of the new InColors called Soft Succulent. Then I cut out the flowers and the leaves in the DSP using the coordinating dies and adhered some of them with Stampin Seal and one with Dimensionals to a piece of Basic White cardstock I had cut out using the new Scalloped Contours Dies. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Soft Succulent ink. I then used a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets to adhere that to my card base. I love those sheets because they add such dimension to a card and are so easy to adhere. They are just like Dimensionals only they are 4 1/2″ x 4 5/16″ that you can cut to any size. You can even die cut them to pop up an image, word or letter.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy and made using their Designer Series Paper. I can’t wait to see their ideas. They are both so talented!
Oh Susan, this is wonderful. I love the die cut flowers that emphasize multiple uses of the DSP. That gingham background is totally my favorite! Just a lovely card!
This is so beautiful, Susan! I love that gingham DSP design, and what a perfect way to easily pop out pansies! It’s simply gorgeous.
