Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper

Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper

This card shows how Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper matches this sample from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (too bad supplies of this DSP have run out!).  Almost all Stampin’ Up! DSP is double-sided so, as you can see here, all you need to do is cut the DSP layer in half (almost) and flip the paper over!  Both sides will match for a beautifully coordinating card because all the paper in a package is made to go together.  The Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper will be retired at the end of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue so if you think you’d like to get some, don’t delay!!

    1. Use the Paper Trimmer to cut at 3″.

  3. Cut Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper at 4″ x 1/2″.
    1. Attach over the seam with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Use Tranquil Tide Classic Ink and Merry Merlot Classic Ink to stamp the greeting on Whisper White Cardstock.

Santa’s Helpers

Here’s another “quick & easy” card made with Santa’s Helpers shown on a small piece of Santa’s Workshop DSP!  This specialty paper was amazing and made it so easy to find cute little characters to share.  Lots of the images in this package are made to match the framelits exactly so you don’t have to do any “fussy cutting”.  Isn’t that great?  And other images are set up in a straight line like the ones shown here so they are easy to cut with the paper cutter and add to your project!  Thanks to Nicolle Belesimo for sharing her design.
