Playful Alphabet

Hello everyone.  It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me.  This time we have a color challenge.  I don’t know who made up these colors together but they are crazy!  Oh wait.  It was me!

Stampin Up Playful Alphabet I got the idea from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.  That is the great thing about the Stampin’ Up!® papers.  They give you the colors ahead of time and I love that sometimes they put colors together that I would never think of.  Plus I am still on my goal to actually use most of my Designer Series Paper.  I’m not doing that well but better than I used to.

To make this card I started with a piece of the Well Suited DSP.  I love how the Cajun Craze stripes look Grosgrain ribbon.   Then I had to decide what color would look good with Night Of Navy and Cajun Craze.  I decided BumbleBee looked great with them.   I cut the letters using the Playful Alphabet Die set.  I adhered them to the flags which are part of the Tasteful Labels dies.  I decided to adhere the flags using Dimensionals which gave the card some depth.   I stamped the word “birthday” using the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  I masked off the word Happy using tape.  Then I cut it out using a die from Hydrangea Dies.

Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using these crazy colors.

Here is the second card of my Designer Series Paper posts.  If you recall, on Monday, I wrote about how I can’t get myself to make that first cut into a sheet of DSP.  I keep thinking if I cut it, then come up with a fantastic idea to use it, I won’t be able to because it is already cut.   DSP has at least two sheets of every design and there are two different designs on each side so that idea is silly.  One of the things I always do when I open a pack of Designer Series Paper is to arrange all the sheets so I can see both sides of the patterns.  That way, when I flip through I can see all the designs instead of two sheets of the same side.  It really helps me in using them and seeing what goes together.

To make this card I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and part of the Well Suited Suite.  I love the patterns in this paper.  It is perfect for masculine cards but can also be used for all cards too.  The dotted piece is 1 3/8″ x 5.25″.  The striped side is 2.75″ x 5.25″.  I decided to cut a little strip of Basic Gray cardstock to divide the two patterns.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Handsomely Suited and is also part of the Well Suited Suite.  I stamped it in Basic Gray ink and then punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.  Lastly I added a few of the Matte Black Dots.

Stayed tuned for another post using mostly Designer Series Paper on Friday.  If I can cut it and use it, you can too
