6 Ways to use 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stacks

Savi Sunday 22 - 6 Ways to use Designer Series Paper 6x6 Paper Stack

Well, I know its not Sunday but I thought I would go ahead and post anyways.  Have you ever heard the expression, things happen in 3's.  This is my three!!!

We had a really bad thunderstorm come through on Sunday and knocked out the electricity.  Then as I was recording my video, it cut off the very end... not really sure what happened but it is not there, so make sure you take a look at the last picture below.  It's probably my favorite out of them all.  Lastly, the video editing program I use for my Savi Sunday videos updated.... do I need to say more.  Ugh - technology!

Don't forget to click on the images to get a clearer picture... I don't know why it does that :)

1st Idea:  use your DSP has the focal point

PicsArt_07-20-02.13.02

  • standard A2 card base (5-1/5 x 8-1/2)
  • Whisper White card stock layer 4 x 5-1/4
  • cut 6x6 DSP to 3-3/4 x 5 and opposite pattern 2-1/4 x 5
  • add small piece of DSP with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • label and words from So Sentimental Bundle

2nd Idea:  use left over strips to add some interest to the inside of your card

PicsArt_07-20-09.44.29

3rd Idea:  die cut your DSP papers

PicsArt_07-20-02.17.31

I love how this one came out!  I used Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee 6x6 Paper Stack and die cut with the Celebrate Sunflowers dies. 

The Whisper White layer is 4 x 5-1/4 adhered to a Cinnamon Cider card base.

4th Idea:  use punches with your DSP paper

PicsArt_07-20-02.20.24

Above is a very simple card but I like it.  Card base is Magenta Madness 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 with a piece of Whisper White on top.  White is 4 x 5-1/4.  I stamped the vase with Memento Black ink and colored with Misty Moonlight Blends markers.  Stamped a few leaves in Just Jade and added the punched flowers with Mini Dimensionals.  I used the Small Bloom Punch and punches out three different patterned blooms. 

5th Idea:  alter DSP paper with inked embossing folder

PicsArt_07-20-02.22.35

  • card base in Misty Moonlight card stock.  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 
  • layer of In-Color DSP cut 4-1/8 x 5-7/8
  • Whisper White layer is cut to 3 x 5-1/4
  • rectangle piece of DSP cut to 2-3/4 x 5 ran through Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder "Inked"
    • I took Misty Moonlight ink pad and lightly tapped onto the Dainty Diamonds folder before putting my paper in and running through my embossing machine
  • words stamped in Misty Moonlight on a piece of Whisper White measuring 1 x 3.  Adhered with Dimensionals
  • sunflowers stamped on Whisper White with Memento Black ink
  • color sunflower with Mango Melody, Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin' Blends
  • take 2 In Good Taste Elements and color in Jude Jade either Blends markers or with a Sponge Dauber and ink pad.  Adhere with glue dots
  • die cut a sunflower with Misty Moonlight card stock and layer behind colored sunflower.  Add to card with Dimensionals

6th Idea:  color your DSP

PicsArt_07-20-02.24.56

  • card base is Thick Whisper White 5-1/4 x 8-1/2.  Make sure you pre-score at 4-1/4 before you fold to help prevent cracking because of paper thickness
  • polka dot DSP layer is 4 x 5-1/4 and I did an Ombre coloring on it.  Lightest area is Seaside Spray, then Misty Moonlight and the darkest is Night of Navy.  I used my Sponge Brayer to roll on the inks. 
  • Layer of Whisper White is 3-1/4 x 4-1/2 adhere to card with Dimensionals
  • Add a piece of Flowers for Every Season DSP cut 3 x 4-1/2
  • wrap with a piece of Misty Moonlight Ribbon
  • words, stamped in Misty Moonlight, are from the So Sentimental Bundle along with the scallop label die.  Adhere with Dimensionals
  • finish off with adding some gorgeous Elegant Faceted Gems!
