I don’t think I’m obsessed with this paper, but I am on a mission to show you how versatile our Stampin’ Up Designer Series Papers are. The cards I created today use a simple cutting strategy for a single piece of DSP as shown below. This is the same cut that I used on my card from Monday.
You get twelve pieces of DSP and there are so many ways to use these pieces. You might need to pay attention to the orientation of the design if there is a true horizontal or vertical orientation, like Monday’s card or today’s card.
This one was made by cutting the 4”x 3” into two pieces; two 2”x 3” pieces. Then a large label was placed between the two pieces giving the appearance that it is on big piece.
The card base is the standard A2 size (4.25″ x 5.5 “) in Daffodil Delight. I used the Hive 3D Embossing folder on a 3.75″ x 5” piece of Daffodil Delight paper. THen with my Blending Brush, I burnished with Early Espresso ink. Then I distressed the corners and edges a bit.
The sentiment label is cut from Bumblebee cardstock using the Tasteful Labels dies. The sentiment is from the “Celebrating You” stamp set from the Mini catalog. Last a Bumblebee Trinket was added on the label.
I have a second card for you today. Same layout, but different papers and a different piece of DSP from the same Daffodil Afternoon Sale-a-Bration paper. (free with $50 purchase).
The card base is Pear Pizzazz & a Daffodil Delight piece of card stock was run through the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. The label in Very Vanilla was made using the same label as the first card (Tasteful Label dies) & the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz is from the new celebrating You stamp set in the January-June mini catalog. The little flowers stamp from Hello Ladybug stamp was inked with Daffodil Delight ink & stamped off & then stamped on the label to add color and dimension. I added Bumblebee Gingham ribbon & a bow.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards. Have a great Friday & weekend! See you again on Monday. Marilyn (aka MJ)
