Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper Card – Day 3 – Video Tutorial

All this week I’ve been sharing cards that use Designer Series Paper.
And I’m also sharing the top ways I like to use it.

If you missed Day 1, you can see it here and Day 2 here.

This is all leading up to a Designer Series Paper sale beginning October 1st – 15% off select Designer Series Paper.

AND on any order $50+ when you order at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, I’m throwing in a free pack of solid cardstock (in addition to the free $9 item).

Day 3: I love using Designer Series Paper for what they’re designed for.

What do I mean?  Whether it’s a snowflake pattern, tree pattern, heart pattern, or a pattern with people – I use it for just that.  If there’s an actual image being shown, I use it on my card for what it actually is.

Today, I wanted a background to my skiing buddy, so I went for a snowflake pattern.

Today’s card is the one I shared last week for my Facebook live.  It uses the super cute Freezin’ Fun Bundle in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and I paired it with the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.

I’ll be back tonight with another live demonstration at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page.  Catch it live and you’ll have a chance to win the card!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Congratulations Card

Yesterday we had a great color challenge for our Thursday blog hop.

I actually ended up making two cards with the colors, and liked them both.  You can see yesterday’s card here.

My card today starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out one rectangle from Whisper White cardstock and one from Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  I embossed the DSP using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

On the Whisper White panel, I used the Beautiful Friendship and stamped the flowers in Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss ink and the leaves in Old Olive ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink.

Lastly, I wrapped around a Poppy Parade bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Congratulations Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

As you’ll see in my card below I had no trouble with the Poppy Parade and Old Olive, but struggled with the Blackberry Bliss, so I sorta tucked that color in 😉

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the outline of the flower and leaves in Memento Black ink.

I took the flower “fill” image and stamped that in Poppy Parade ink over the flowers.  For the leaf, I inked it up in Old Olive ink but only stamped down a side of the stamp so as to keep the ink inside the leaf (as the image is much bigger than the leaf).  I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies.

Underneath the sentiment I adhered a Blackberry Bliss banner and tied a Blackberry Bliss bow next to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty Off To Places Card

I love when two stamp sets from different catalogs work great together!!

I’m using the Parisian Beauty (from the Jan-June Mini Catalog) and the Above the Clouds (from the Annual Catalog) Stamp Sets for today’s card.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  On this I adhered a pattern from the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.

Next I stamped the Eiffel Tower from the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink on a 2″ panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the end in a banner and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the stamp from the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink and fussy cut it out.  I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a small circle from Petal Pink cardstock.  I adhered the stamp on the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set in Pool Party ink.  I then snipped it in half and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Graduation Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut another panel of Basic Black cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I took panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the congratulations from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Memento Black ink across the front, sometimes not re-inking in order to get a lighter shade.

I then matted this on Gold Foil and wrapped a Basic Black knot around it.

I stamped the “you did it” from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I then used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out a scalloped Basic Black square and Gold square to layer underneath it.

I then lastly added a few sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to the one corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Small Bloom Punch Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

On the card front I stamped the small leaf multiple times from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and stamped one of the flowers in Versamark ink on Vellum cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I did this multiple times and then used the Small Bloom Punch to cut them out, as well as a bunch of other flowers from Pool Party and Petal Pink cardstock.

I adhered these down cascading down the card.

I used the Christmas Cardinal Dies and cut out little swirls from Vellum cardstock to add around the flowers and then added some rhinestones to finish it off.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Pool Party ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Congrats Card

This week is Christmas.  I’ll be posting as normal (except for Wednesday).

I hope you have a great week ahead!  My kids are now home and it’s my favorite vacation of the year.

It’s freezing here which forces us to stay inside and relax.  Kids will play with new Christmas gifts.  There’ll be many PJ days and lots of board game playing and stamping for me.  It’s a super relaxed week and to tell you the truth – I’m more giddy about the week ahead than actual Christmas day (which can be a bit chaotic).

Christmas cards are done so I’m back to making regular every day cards (which are much needed as my stash is depleted.

My card today starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in So Saffron ink and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink in the corners.  I then tucked a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper pack behind it.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship in Pear Pizzazz ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and snipped the end in a banner.

I wound some Whisper White Baker’s Twine underneath and added a few pearls around it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Celebrate.”  Have fun hopping around to see how everyone interpreted “celebrate” this month.

I decided to make congratulations cards celebrating a new baby.

Yesterday I shared how much I love the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the 2020 Jan-June Mini Catalog.  Consider today’s card Part 2 to yesterday’s as I’m using the Parisian Flourish, Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon, and Champagne Rhinestones from the same suite.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and embossed it using the Petal Flourish Embossing Folder.  I cut off 1″ from the bottom, and then another 1″ off.  I threw away the second cut and adhered the top and bottom using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the negative space I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink.   I wrapped around some Petal Pink ribbon and added a few Champagne Rhinestones.

I figured while I had everything out, I should go ahead and make another card for a new baby boy.  I used all the same product except used Pool Party, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, and regular Rhinestones.

Here they are together…
