This year Stampin’ Up!® has outdone themselves on Designer Series Paper. Normally I purchase 2 or 3 packs of it but this year I think I came close to buying them all because they are all so gorgeous. Expression In Ink Designer Series Paper is one of these. It is just beautiful. This paper has beautiful colors like Polished Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Pale Papaya plus it has gold streaks running through them. This paper is perfect for when you are in a hurry and need a card quickly but you still want it to wow the person you are sending it to.
To make both of these cards all I did was cut the DSP and adhere it to a card base (Pear Pizzazz and Polished Pink). Then I just added a sentiment. The Pear Pizzazz card using two sentiment stamps from the set called Sweet As A Peach. I stamped both sentiments in Shaded Spruce ink. Then I added a couple of the Genial Gems.
I used the stamp set called Biggest Wish on the Polished Pink card. I did stamp the background of the sentiment with a stamp from Artistically Inked using Polished Pink ink because I felt it needed a little more color. I first stamped it on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on my card stock to make it a bit lighter.
Simple cards are quick and easy to make when using Stampin’ Up!® Designer Series Paper and adding a sentiment so don’t be afraid to make one to send to someone. They will love it as much as if you spent hours on it. PS: You don’t have to say it was an easy card. They will never know!
Susan, these cards are absolutely stunning. It funny because with that DSP, you can even use the scraps and pieces with a lot of white.
These are both so beautiful, Susan. They do look like they took a long time! Your secret is safe with me!
