On todays Facebook live I demo’d a couple of new products…The garden Wishes Stamp Set, The Darling Donkeys Stampset (Free with £45 spend from Jan 5th) and the gorgeous new Blending brushes!
In Good Taste is the DSP (designer series paper) that I am using this week in the blog hop. This is another of the paper packs that are on offer until the end of October. Drop me a note if you’d like to order.
My three cards are all the same this week, but show how different they can look in different colour ways.
The first card uses Night of Navy for its main colour, and the stamp set used is Tasteful Textures. The die cut leaves are from varies die sets and are cut in the lovely new Brushed Metallic papers
The second has a Petal Pink base, Petal Pink flower and Gray Granite stamping. This time the dies cuts are in Silver foil paper
Finally, the third card base is Early Espresso, with Old Olive die cut pieces and a Daffodil Delight flower coloured with Stampin Blends.
Hope you pop over to the other blogs to see all the other fab ideas with DSP and it inspires you to get your papers out and use them!
Did you check out the other blogs last week? Well, we are doing this for the whole of October so check in every week for more. Its fab to see other peoples ideas, even with the same papers it can look so different. We hope it gives you some inspiration to use or buy papers….I know for sure I’m a bit of a hoarder!
This week I’ve used Pattern Play DSP for the two card I’ve made specifically for this blog hop. They use a fabulous range of bright and cheerful colours, great for both Male and Female cards.
The first card I made uses Night of Navy for all the mat layers, Stitched Triangle Dies, Night of Navy (from the co ordinating ribbon set) and Daffodil Delight Ribbon and the sentiment is from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. Not sure the stitching shows up too well in the triangles on her, but I think it adds some lovely interest.
The second card uses Calypso Coral as the mat layer and all the paper is the oddments from previous cards made. The sentiment is also from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and stamped in Coastal Cabana ink.
Did you know that selected DSP is on offer this month?
To help promote, I am joining in a blog hop. Don’t know what a blog hop is? Well just follow the links at the bottom of this page, which will ‘hop’ you to other peoples blog, where you can look at other peoples ideas…easy!
We are doing this every Tuesday, so have a peep each week for ideas using these offer papers.
This week I’m using the Artistry Blooms papers to make 2 cards.
Card number 1
First cut your DSP to 14.4cmx 10cm
Then I used the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the words ‘For You’ in the top left corner
Dont forget to glue the centres of the ‘O’s and ‘R’!
And that was my first card…so simple and can be used for lots of different things!
But hey…I’d got the die cut words still, so…….
Card number 2
As before , I cut a piece of DSP 10 x 14.4 cm
I cut 3 strips of DSP that matched the die cut letters that were about 10cm x 1cm and cut diagonally across all the ends (one in the opposite direction to the others).
I die cut and embossed a label from the ‘Tasteful Labels@ die set and stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ from the ‘Many Mates’ stamp set in Night of Navy ink. Have a look in the picture below…it shows the embossing off much better!
I glued the letters, and paper strips to the DSP and used dimensionals to raise the sentiment off the card. I then assembled the card and ‘voila’.
