The Silver & Gold 6x6 DSP is really pretty but lacks some colour. The best thing about this paper is that you can add your own colour very easily! For today's card you'll learn how to use the Stampin' Blends to colour the Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper (DSP). I hadn't tried using Stampin' Blends with this paper before and I love how it turned out! 

The first step is deciding what colours to use. Because this is a Christmas card I decided to go the green route. Out came my pile of green Stampin' Blends! What are Stampin' Blends? They are high-quality alcohol markers that are sold in a combo pack that has a dark shade and a light shade, for an amazing colour blending experience. When choosing colours I used a few small strips of the DSP to figure out what order looked best. The colours on this card from left to right are: Mint Macaron dark, Shaded Spruce light, Bermuda Bay light, Granny Apple Green light and Mossy Meadow light. I suggest using the light Blends first and add in the dark if the colour isn't what you were expecting. Tip: Start from the lightest shade you have, I started on the left side with Mint Macaron. When done adding the second colour take the first colour and colour over the joining line. This will blend the colours a bit making the different colour less harsh.
To finish the card I pulled out the cure Handmade Wished stamp and punch because it has some wonderful greetings with different fonts that you can mix and match for tags to put onto homemade treats or add to your holiday cards. I changed up the direction of the merry stamp as it is designed to be curved as shown in the photo below but I was able to mostly straighten the stamp as I put the it on a clear block. You can change the shape a little for some photopolymer stamps as the material is bendy where the red rubber stamp aren't able to be shaped when putting them on a block.
The Handmade Wishes bundle includes the Handmade Wishes Photopolymer stamp set and Handmade Tag Punch. When you purchase these two items as a bundle you save 10% off the price of buying the stamp and punch separately. Plus, bundles will help you quickly cut out stamped images for a single project or create multiples of the same project with ease. This bundle is $50.25 and you would need to choose $9.75, such as the Tear & Tape adhesive, to reach $60, then you can choose the Silver & Gold DSP for free.
