Springtime Cards Featuring Designer Series Paper…

I mentioned in my last E-mail that 3 of our 4 cards for our March Stamp Camp will feature Stampin’ Up Designer Series Paper – better known by the acronym DSP.  I love using DSP.  Why?  It adds dimension, beauty, and is a time saver.  Let’s take a look at 2 of our cards for March Stamp Camp

Psst1....straightHappy Watercolor is our first card.  This “springy” card features Watercolor Wonder DSP and the Happy Watercolor stamp set.  The colors carried throughout the card are Smoky Slate, Island Indigo and Gumball Green.  Note the lace doily peeking out, the candy dots, use of the border punch, black rhinestones, the punched butterfly, the Bakers Twine, and the embossed edge of the Smoky Slate card.  Lots of embellishments are used to provide texture and interest. 

 

 

Pst insideOne comment I hear frequently about DSP is “What can I do with all the little leftover pieces.”  The inside of Happy Watercolor shows one way to use your scraps.  Here, we have carried the border punch and DSP used on the card front to the inside of the card.  We punched a small piece of DSP for the bottom of the card and used the leftover strip on the top of the card.  The inside also features  my new Word Bubbles Framelits.  The little mouse is saying “you make me HAPPY” which is one of the messages featured in the Happy Watercolor stamp set. 

 

Springtime Smiles rlpSweet Sorbet is our second card and features the Sweet Sorbet DSP which is FREE with a $50 purchase during the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) promotion period.  What a great way to earn this beautiful DSP.  Debbi designed this card using the colors found in the Sweet Sorbet DSP – Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe,  Pistachio Pudding. and Basic Black.  Deb used the new Decorative Dots Embossing Folder which is also FREE with a $50 purchase during the current SAB promotion.  Pool Party Seam Binding ribbon, pearls, a butterfly, and a small banner carry thru this springtime theme. 

Isn’t it amazing what you can create with a small piece of beautiful DSP and a few embellishments?  You will have a chance to create these 2 cards plus 2 more during our March Stamp Camp.  The dates and times for this stamp camp are as follows:  Thursday, March 13th from 2 PM to 9 PM; Friday, March 14th from 2 PM to 9 PM; and Saturday, March 15th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  The cost for our 4 cards is $12 which includes all material and supplies as well as soda and water to quench your thirst. 

Don’t forget about Sale-a-Bration (SAB) which continues thru March 31st.  With each $50 product purchase, you can choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration brochure .  There are several nice stamp sets, the beautiful DSP shown above, the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, and several nice kits.  See the SAB brochure at http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/NA/20131119_SAB_EN/20131119_SAB_en_US.pdf

I look forward to seeing you this coming week.  Give me a call or send me an E-mail if you have any questions.
