We had a crazy Memorial Day weekend at the cottage. All our neighbors came with their kids, grandkids and lots of dogs. The weather was gorgeous and there was lots of good food and beverages all weekend long. One of the best parts was I managed to get down the shore wall, sit in a chair and put my feet in the water. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do that with my foot but I had lots of helpers and it made the weekend great! It’s the little things!
Stampin’ Up!® makes the most beautiful Designer Series Paper that sometimes you just have to let it do the talking. There are eleven different 12″ x 12″ papers to choose from and four different 6″ x 6″ papers. Each one is very different from the rest yet so beautiful. I decided to use the Sun Prints 12″ x 12″ DSP for my card.
To make this card I took a 3.5″ x 4.5″ piece of the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper and cut it at a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer. To make things easier I cut a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Basic White card stock and adhered the strips of DSP to it. That way I was able to line it up much quicker than trying to figure it out on a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Then I adhered that to the card base.
Next I cut out the words “thanks” and “you” twice from the die set called Amazing Thanks. I like cutting them out twice and gluing them together. It gives it a little more depth. Next I cut off the “s” on thanks and adhered both words to the DSP. It was a super quick card to make but the Designer Series Paper background makes it look more complicated.
The July – December Mini Catalog will be coming out on July 1st. You are going to love it. There are so many suites and bundles available that you are bound to love at least one or twelve of them. Then to top it all off, it will also be Sale-a-bration where you can earn free products with a qualifying order. If you placed a $50 order during the previous year, you should get one sometime in June so look for that in the mail.
On a side note, if you want to place an order using my Host Code, all you need to do is click on the box below or the one on the right side of my blog and it will take you to my Stampin’ Up!® website where you can order. It also fills in the Host Code automatically for you! Easy as pie!
Yes, the DSP is my nemisis. Thanks so much the tease!
I’m so glad you were able to get to the water! Soon you’ll be getting there without help! This is a beautiful card, Susan. That paper is gorgeous! (Clever idea to use “thanks” without the “s.”)
