Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.
This little bit of creativity has been spurred on by the fabulous Designer Series Paper special from Stampin' Up!® through till the end of July (5 more days). You can buy 3 packs, and the 4th will be free. These are current papers available for the next 11 months and they're gorgeous!! I've been keen to try some Fancy Fold cards, which usually scare me to death, but these two were quite fun.
There comes a point where you just have to cut into this lovely paper, or you'll end up with stacks of it unopened and unloved. DSP makes it super easy to make gorgeous cards with little effort. I believe that I may have overcome my "fear of cutting" phobia, as I've also recently returned to chopping up fabric! Yes, that might actually be patchwork. My friend, Sharon Davern had shared this Fancy Fold Double Triangle Fun Fold card recently, so I did check with her for the dimensions of the pattern paper layer, but really this is a very straight-forward card. The biggest decision might be the closure.
I went with the Belly-band for this card.
Before the end of July, I'll be ordering more of this beautiful paper, Garden Impressions. I've all but finished the whole of my first pack and its not yet one month old. It's so handy that Stampin' Up! always list the colours on the packs of paper, it makes it much easier to co-ordinate. I've used So Saffron for the base, and picked Blueberry Bushel for the daisy, even though it wasn't a listed colour.
Daisy Delight stamp set does match with the DSP in quite a charming way, don't you think?
Now for card two, also using paper from Garden Impressions.
There are only a few days left till the end of the month, so don't delay placing your Designer Series Paper order with your demonstrator.
