Peaceful Place card using half sheet of DSP

Today’s card uses the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Silver accents are stunning for Christmas sparkle. The tree on the front is die cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP using the Christmas Trees dies!

For this card, I used a 12″ x 6″ piece of the DSP and scored it in half at 6″ and then from each end at 1-7/8″. Fold these ends into the card and adhere.  This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

The Basic White insert measures 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″, folded in half lengthwise. Adhere this to the centre of the card and this also gives the card a little more strength, as the patternd papers are quite thin.

The sentiments, from the Christmas to Remember stamp set are stamped in Mint Macaron ink. The presents are fussy cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP!

HOC Week 9 – Whimsy Wonder Peaceful Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have got my inspiration from one of my team members, Amie McIroy, Eager to Stamp who lives in Western Australia.

I just adore this Specialty paper; the colours and the extra sparkle!

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

My card base is Mint Macaron with a layer of the DSP. A strip of card was cut to size and some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon wrapped across and secured behind, before it was glued to the card. The Label Me Lovely punch was used to punch out the Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card. The pink layer I cut in half horizontally and glued behind the green punch to create the border. Then I ran it through my embossing machine in the Evergreen Forest 3D TIEF and added it to my card on dimensionals. The deer is punched from the Silver Foil and added with dimensionals also.

HOC Week 8 – Whimsy and Wonder Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have made cards using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is just stunning with the holographic accents and the non-traditional colours for Christmas.

These colours really appeal to me and I couldn’t wait to add them to my order.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies with Misty Moonlight card, I die cut the background label, then added a piece of Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon with some Stampin’ Seal, then one of the Wonderful Snowflakes on a dimensional, then a stamped Mint Macaron tree.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Card 2 – For this card, I covered the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal around the edges and a big X through the centre, before I cut 5/8″ x 6″ strips of the patterned paper. I added them from the top of the card and worked my way down using the extra length on either side to help place them and line them up perfectly. Don’t worry that they overhang, as once all the strips are adhered, cut off the excess using the Trimmer or Paper Snips. This is a great way to show all the patterns in a pack of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

The trees are die cut in Basic White, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron. The stars are Blushing Bride and the tinsel is some of the new 12″x12″ Silver Foil. This comes in 3 shades snd this is the middle one, that has a slightly pinkish/purple shade to it.

A Whimsy Christmas

Today’s card uses the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. I just love the holographic accents and the non-traditional colour scheme for Christmas.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

I have used a Thick White card base, then cut a piece of DSP the same size as the card front. I cut approx. 2″ off one end and flipped it over, then adhered them to the card. This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes, but I still wasn’t happy with the join of the patterned papers, so I cut the edge of the sheet surrounding the Wonderful Snowflakes and used that – waste nothing when it is so pretty!

The sentiment and pink tree are stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. The two small thin trees are die cut from Silver Foil and the trees either side are die cut from the Designer Paper and the present is fussy cut from the papers!

The sentiment is die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and added with Dimensionals over a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
