Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!, Thank you, Thinlits Dies

Masculine Thank You with the Nature’s Poem Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a couple of cards using the new Nature’s Poem Suite; Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits, Nature’s Poem DSP. I am so excited this stamp set has coordinating framelits to cut out the images. No more fussy cutting!

I love how the background piece of DSP brings so much dimension to a card. I stamped some of the leaves on it with Crumb Cake ink and wow, it brings it to life.

The tree image is stamped in Shaded Spruce, a new colour arriving on 1 June. This particular image is stamped off once, but you will see the full strength image in my next card (no wasting from me!!!). I love the large banner behind with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing on it. A piece of vellum, sponged with ink gives an antique look and is punched with the Starburst punch.

This card uses a darker piece of Designer Series Paper from the Nature’s Poem pack. With the full strength tree image, I felt it needed a darker base. I added a thin banner of Shaded Spruce card behind the larger banner.

Farewell, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Masculine Farewell with Rooted in Nature

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is another farewell card, but this time we have a masculine theme. I thought that the new Rooted in Nature bundle was going to be the perfect choice!

Here I have used Dapper Denim & Emerald Envy, two colours that will be retiring at the end of this month. I’ve also used Very Vanilla, with a new in color, Grapefruit Grove with Soft Suede & Dapper Denim ink pads. These colours go so well together!

I stamped the leaves before die cutting them and adding them to the card base with fast fuse. I embossed a couple of the leaves with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats before die cutting them. I tried cutting them first, then embossing, but it was too hard that way. Doesn’t it give a beautiful texture?!!

The Farewell sentiment was printed from my computer and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Three-fold card with Share What You Love SDSP and instructions

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another style card that uses the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is available now as part of the early release to customers. Click here to see more!

This is a three fold card, and you can make two cards from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Cut your sheet to 12″ x 6″, then score at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾”. You also need some white card 2¾” x 3¾” and black card 3” x 4” for the front. Ensure you stamp, then mount the layers and only add glue to the back of the card on one side before adding to the centre of your card. You don’t want to glue all the functioning layers together!

As you open the first fold, you then add the next sentiment and so on.

I used the 2″ circle punch and the starburst punch which is the perfect size to layer. The sentiments are from the coordinating Love What You Do stamp set.

The sentiment on the back of the card is from the Picture Perfect Birthday set which is going to carryover into the new annual catalogue!

I just adore the pearly shine on this DSP, so I actually added a layer on the back for where I will write my birthday message.

Quick card using Delightful Daisy DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick card using up some Designer Series Paper that will be retiring at the end of the month. This is the Delightful Daisy DSP!

This particular pattern is very bright and bold, but it looks great cut into a large rectangle, mounted with a white border along 2 sides and placed in one corner leaving the Old Olive card base to show. A white banner is added with the sentiment (from Petal Palette) stamped in Old Olive ink. A ribbon bow is added to finish it off!

I was asked to make quite a few cards for my workplace and what better way to use up some DSP!

Stampin' Up!

Share What You Love Specialty DSP with Blooms & Wishes

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some more of the cards that we made at my craft class on Saturday, where we made 6 cards each! To see Monday’s post click here.

From 1 sheet of Speciality Designer Series Paper, you can make 8 of these cards. This double sided paper is stunning on both sides, you want to make the most of it, so by making cards in this style, you get to see both sides and enjoy the shimmer it has on the patterns.

I got my inspiration for these from Creating Success with Rhonda Wade on FB, but I changed up the measurements to suit our Australian card format to fit into our C6 envelopes.

Love What You Do & Share What You Love Designer Paper cards

Dear Crafters,

Love What You Do & Share What You Love Specialty DSP Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia

Cut the Designer Paper at 5-7/8″ and then cut that piece into 4 equal parts, 3″ wide each so you end up with 4 pieces of 5-7/8″ x 3″. Ensure if there is a design on the paper that is directional, you cut it the correct way and be sure to check the reverse side!

Next, take an A4 sheet of coordinating card stock and place it in your trimmer with the short side to the top and cut it at 5-1/2″. Place that strip to the side for later. Rotate the card 90 degrees and cut at 5-7/8″. Place the 5-1/2″ side to the top of the trimmer or Simply Scored and score at 4-1/8″. Cut a strip of black card measuring 5-7/8″ x 3/4″. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the inside flap of the main card and add the strip of black making sure you line it up straight to show the right amount of black you would like showing. Place the DSP on the card lining it up with the card base on the right had side. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the left side and holding it all firmly in place so it doesn’t move, fold over the card flap and press to seal and there you have your card. Now decorate as you wish. I have used the Starburst punch and the 2″ circle punch and stamped on it.

Here is that same card open to see the reverse side of the paper. How could you stick that to a card and not see it?!!! This is the perfect card style to show it off!
