DSP – Designer Series Paper

It’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight!

It’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight!

When using the Make A Wish stamp set with Classic Ink that coordinates with the DSP, it’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight.  So by using this technique shared by Deseree Krumm, I didn’t have to decide and I can enjoy both sides of the Designer Series Paper!

Details and instructions:

    1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
    2. Use the 3rd largest Rectangular Stitched Framelit with the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform to cut out a rectangle in the front of the card base.  TIP: I prefer to place the Framelit on the inside of the front so that the nicer looking finished edges would be visible.
    3. Cut your choice of Share What You Love DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive along the edges to attach to the front of the card base. The reverse side of the DSP will show on the inside of the card.  This is a great way to display both sides of the DSP!
    4. Use coordinating Classic Ink (Rich Razzleberry or Grapefruit Grove) to stamp the greeting from the Life is Grand stamp set on the Whisper White rectangle.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the DSP on the front of the card.  Add a coloured or sparkling embellishment.
    5. Use coordinating Classic Ink (Rich Razzleberry or Grapefruit Grove) to stamp another greeting from the Life is Grand stamp set on the inside of the card.

This is what the inside looks like – nice to be able to see the “other” side of the DSP!

Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set

Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set

What a treat it would be to receive Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, don’t you agree?  By adding a splash of colour (Tranquil Tide in this case) from the In Color Designer Series Paper, you can create a “quick & easy” card in a short amount of time.

 

Details and Instructions:

  1. Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Big Shot and Subtle Embossing Folder to add a design.
  3. Cut 2017-2019 In Color DSP at 2″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach near the left side of the embossed Whisper White cardstock with Snail Adhesive.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the card base.
  4. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 4″ x 2″.  Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the tree from Rooted In Nature.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach this layer to Basic Black Cardstock that has been cut at 4-1/4″ x 2-1/4″.
  5. Cut a length of Black Baker’s Twine.  Wrap around the tree layer and tie a bow.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach this layer over the DSP.
  6. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 1/2″ x 2-3/4″.
      1. Tip: I used the Stamparatus to line up the words even though my stamp set is mounted on wood.  By figuring out where to place the paper, I could place the wooden part of the stamp in the corner and my words were stamped in the centre of the cardstock.
  7. Use Snail Adhesive to attach a small piece of matching DSP along the bottom of the greeting piece.  Use the Paper Snips to angle trim each end.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the “tree” layer making sure to show a small bit of white at the bottom.
  8. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Tranquil Tide Classic Ink (or coordinating ink if using a different DSP) to stamp the desired greeting.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the inside of the card.

With a greeting like this on the inside of the card base, you won’t have to write much more!
