I am not sure if you have noticed this or not, but Stampin’ Up!® offers huge packs of Designer Series Paper in the back of every catalog. You can get them by using your hostess dollars that you earn for placing an order of $150 or more. The packs are 48 pieces of 12″ x 12″. That is a lot of paper! So far, every time I order a pack of them, I have been very pleased with the colors and designs. Wait until the new January – April Mini comes out. It is my favorite yet!
I made this card using the Designer Series Paper Hostess Pack in the 2022/2023 Annual Catalog called Design A Daydream. The main colors in this pack are Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink and Pool Party.
The first thing I did when making this card is to take a piece of 8.5″ x 5.5″ of Basic White card stock and fold it in half. Then I used the stitched scalloped die from the die set called Scalloped Contours and cut off and 1/2″ of the front of the card. Then I ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine again using the Gingham Embossing Folder. I placed a 1/2″ x 5.5″ piece of the Design A Daydream DSP over the edge of the embossing folder marks so you can not see the dent it left. Then I took a 1″ x 5.5″ piece and adhered it along the edge of the back section of the card.
Next I stamped the leaves from the stamp set called Plentiful Plants in Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce ink and cut them out using the coordinating Perfect Plant dies. I stamped the pot in Cajun Craze ink and cut that out too. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Heron Habitat which I cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies.
Check out these packs of paper. You can find them on the hostess page which is usually in the back of the catalog. You are going to love the new mini catalog pack!
