Showing posts with label Designer Series Paper
The New Horizons designer series paper (DSP) is so gorgeous! The watercoloured horizon scenes were handpainted by one of Stampin' Up!'s talented artisans. On the opposite side are watercoloured splotches that can work for layers on your next project. For these simple cards you need very little in supplies. Perfect cards if you do not have a die cutting machine. With the variety of designs in this DSP pack you could mix up the colours and designs. I've used Gray Granite and Basic Black cardstock but you could switch up the card base depending on your favourite colour in the designer series paper.
To show off this Awesome Otter I went digging through my designer series paper looking for something that would inspire a card. I keep my DSP in big zipper bags in a drawer. Pretty sure I pulled out all the packs I have and didn't like any that I saw! Have you been that way? Went looking for something but then nothing works for what you imagined or wanted? No? Just me? Then I remembered the Stampin' Up! order that arrived last week with the Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" designer series paper
What do you think of the bright pink and mango with the softer blues and greens on this card? It makes me think of a stormy day then the sun pops out from behind the thundering clouds, creating a beautiful rainbow overhead. The blue clouds aren't stamped but found in the Sunshine & Rainbows designer series paper. And you can punch the clouds out using the Cloud Punch.
The New Horizon designer series paper (DSP) is one of my favourite packs of paper right now. My second favourite is the Sunshine & Rainbows designer series paper! Do you have a favourite pack? 

The designs in the New Horizon DSP are of gorgeous sunset or sunrise landscape scenes. But on the opposite side or back side of the landscape designs are watercolour wash designs that look like water or clouds or fog. It was perfect to use for this card to make it look like the background is water. The otter can float along holding the cute little fish.
I missed seeing the cute little dog curled up beside the book reading lady when I first saw the In The Moment stamp set! He's so cute. Going to call it a him since I have a chocolate brown boy Cocker Spaniel. This card makes me picture the two of us curled up on a cold winter's day. Although I might just have a blanket wrapped around Griffin too. 
Although Christmas is over you likely, as I do, have Christmas designer series paper leftover. What to do with the pretty paper? A few ideas: 
  • Create a few more Christmas cards to send. Yes, send cards after Christmas to anyone you missed! They will enjoy receiving them.
  • Make a project or cards to use next year. 
  • If you didn't finish that home d├ęcor piece before the holidays? Complete it now so it's ready for next year!
  • Use the designer series paper and photos that you took or that were shared with you and create scrapbook layouts. Make sure to send the photos off to be printed.
  • Some designs can be used to create thank you or birthday cards!

Welcome to December's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! Today we are sharing projects using colours from the Regals Collection. You might see 1 colour from the collection or multiples used together.

Hello! In today's Pretty Cards & Paper November blog hop you will see projects made with the Peaceful Place designer series paper. 
The gorgeous metallic accents in the Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper will help your projects pop! Included in this 12" x 12" pack of paper are 12 sheets of patterned paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs. One side of each has some metallic accents such as falling snow or woodgrain. Although this paper is monochromatic including Basic Black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate you could colour in the sheets to change the look or stamp on the white portions.
Have you used designer series paper instead of stamping for the focal point of your card or project? Stampin' Up!'s Whimsy & Wonder 12" x 12" specialty designer series paper has some beautiful images you can cut out using your Paper Snips and some of the designs might fit in the Christmas Tree Dies. The presents are from one of the designs in this pack and have silver accents mostly on the ribbon. Added to the card was a piece of white Baker's Twine and a few Polished Pink jewels to highlight the ivy. For this card the 'tis the season is stamped (found in the Christmas to Remember stamp set) but you can choose any sentiment you have on hand, either stamped or cut from a sheet of DSP if you have a pack with words. 
Today was day 3 of Stampin' Up!'s OnStage! What is OnStage? It is a 3-day event, usually in-person but held virtually this year. Demonstrators that attend see the new catalogue early, are able to order select  products from the new catalogue, be inspired by the stamping presentations and learn from other demonstrators. Did you catch some of the sneak peaks of new products I shared over on Instagram? I'm not sure if I'm more excited for the Awesome Otters Sale-A-Bration stamp set or the Rainbow of Happiness bundle! You'll be able to see both of them next week when my order arrives!!!! So fun!

Welcome to November's Global Stamping Friends blog hop. Today we are sharing projects with a snowflake theme and the best snowflake item in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue is the Peaceful Place Specialty designer series paper. The gorgeous metallic accents in this pack of paper makes this card pop!
At this month's team meeting my friend Tanya showed us how to make this fun fancy fold card. Her card used the Cute Halloween designer series paper as I have with this card, but she used the skull and bat designs. The ghost and house from one of the DSP pack and the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set. Do you think "Happy Haunting" works with the ghosts? 

Stampin' Up!'s Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper can be found in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue and it's a fun pack of paper to use for your wintery crafting. You could use the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set with this DSP but I've decided to pair the Christmas to Remember stamp set for my card today.
The weather here in Southeastern Ontario is currently not snowy or cold. It's the middle of October and I still have the A/C on! Not that it would be snowing but I'm hopeful that the weather stays warm that I might be able to harvest some more yellow beans from the garden before the frost kicks in. This was my reaction to uploading this picture to my blog today. What am I doing sharing Christmas cards when it's so nice outside? The main reason is to inspire you for what products you may want to craft with for the upcoming holidays as there are only 74 days to Christmas. Deep breath! 

Welcome to this month's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop. We are sharing projects created using Stampin' Up!'s Painted Christmas designer series paper (shown below) to help inspire your creativity! To visit the other's blogs scroll down to after the video below to find a list of all the blogs.

Pumpkins, Leaves & Autumn! My favourite time of year is here. Cooler days, crisp nights, and the beautiful oranges and reds. On Saturday I was able to participate in a Stampin' Expo put on by another Canadian demonstrator. We used the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set and Detailed Pumpkin dies to create cards and learned from other demonstrators. One of reasons I love being a demonstrator is the chance to meet other demonstrators: to make a new friend, swap card ideas and maybe even learn a tip or technique from them.

Hello! Welcome to September's Colour Combo Blog Hop. Autumn is my favourite time of year. Doesn't this month's colour combo of Blushing Bride, Cinnamon Cider and Mango Melody give off fall-ish vibes? 
Thinking of fall had me looking over my stamp collection to see what one would be the best fit for these colours. After a few that might have worked (Enjoy the Moment and Tasteful Touches stamp sets), the Season's Blessings stamp set and Seasonal Basket dies ended up being the clear winner.

Welcome to September's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing the 12 bundles listed on page 19 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. You can choose one of these bundles free when you purchase the starter kit before Sep 30, 2021. Make sure to scroll through to see the blog list for more ideas.

The Peaceful Cabin bundle can be found on page 38 of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue and is part of the Peaceful Place Suite. This suite's colour combinations is Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Black & Silver. For my first order I overlooked the Peaceful Place Specialty designer series paper but spied some projects using this gorgeous paper on Instagram and knew it was joining my DSP collection! It has silver foil on some of the designs.

Hello and welcome to the next stop in August's Pretty Cards and Paper blog hop. My project uses the Peaceful Prints designer series paper. 
Isn't the tree design so pretty? Usually I start a scrapbook page with photos but this time I started with the designer series paper. If you're unsure of where to start with creating a layout Pinterest is a great place to start. Another option is to cut some paper and place it down, more items around a bit, or maybe walk away from the layout for an hour or two.
