Monthly Creative Showcase: Designer Series Paper
Tonight I have a couple of projects for you using patterned papers – this first one uses the gorgeous Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ papers.
My Pacific Point card base is 21cm x 14.8cm, scored at 5.3cm & 10.5cm (landscape)
The DSP is 10.3cm x 14.5cm & 4.8cm x 14.5cm. The Whisper White piece is also 4.8cm x 14.5cm. The 2″ and 2¼” circle punches are used for the feature on the front.
This particular pattern reminds me of the scene in the movie Finding Nemo where the turtles ride the East Australian current. Oh, I love that movie 🥰
The 1cm Pool Party Sheer Ribbon is wrapped around the front panel and glued behind the circle. The stamping inside is Bumblebee for the fish and Pacific Point for the sentiment.
My next card is a square card (12.5cm x 12.5cm) and I have used the sunburst technique. This is a wonderful way to show both sides of the lovely designer papers, because sometimes both sides are adorable and I can’t choose which to use – so why not show both!
I cut another piece of card to measure 12cm x 12cm and using a pencil, draw lines from corner to corner and side to side as shown.
Take 2 pieces of 6″ x 6″ designer paper and cut them into 3″ x 3″ squares. Take one and mark the centre on two sides – here I have used a chalk marker so you can see it. Place it in your trimmer lining up one of the marks at the top and the point at the bottom also in the track and cut. Then rotate the next mark to the top and cut down to the same corner. You’ll be left with 2 triangles and a kite shaped piece. Repeat this on 3 other squares.
Add Stampin’ Seal around the edges and down each of the pencil lines of your card. Start in one corner and place the pieces of DSP with the kite shape in the centre and alternate your patterns.
Here are those same turtles as in the card above, featured in the centre of this card. This time I added some Just Jade ribbon between the two circles.
