Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP)

Card Gift Idea

Good morning stampers,

I have a little gift idea that I would like to share with you!


It’s a blank case that the Stampin’ Up! clear mount stamps come in and I have decorated it with the Garden Gingham Designer Series Paper. Isn’t it a wonderful way to use the DSPs.

I thought it would make a very cool gift and enclosed are 3 of my favourite matching cards I have made with this same DSPs.

These clear cases (119105) can be ordered from my 24/7 online store and you can see them on page 197 of the Annual Catalogue.

They are only $9.95 for 4 cases!

Do you agree this is a lovely gift?

Happy Stamping,

Father’s Day Card

Morning Crafters,

I think it is well and truly time to get making our Father’s Day cards! It’s only 2 weeks until the 1st September and it will be here before we know it.

These cards are made in a similar way to the washi tape card I posted on Wednesday.  Super duper quick and although these are Father’s Day cards, imagine using Christmas papers instead!!! How fast it would be to make your Christmas cards in no time at all. This card only takes about 5-8 minutes to make!

Adhere a sheet of JAC paper to an A4 piece of Whisper White cardstock. (If you don’t know what JAC paper is, it’s a double sided sticky sheet). Cut a strip of this cardstock at 6cm, turn this strip 90 degrees and cut again at 6cm to create a square.

Cut 6 strips of your favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP) at 1cm. You will need 3 sheets of DSP as the sheets are double sided and coordinating colours.

Pull the other side of the JAC paper off and stick the strips on making sure they line up against each other.

Trim the excess and if you so desire, run your square through the Big Shot machine in an embossing folder for a little extra texture!

I even made a Happy Birthday one with left over scraps of paper!

This next card is also using JAC paper, but I cut the A4 page in quarters and adhered 1 piece to my A5 folded card. The Baked Brown Sugar strips were stuck on randomly, one across and one up and down, then alternating the strips of DSP and remaining strips of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Isn’t it an effective look! The centre piece was die cut and punched and put together with dimensionals and I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink before wrapping the twine around 3 times.
