SAVI Sunday - Episode 35 Using DSP Scraps

Hey everyone!  Hope you are well.  I got to spend some time with my nieces and nephew today, which was great.  It was a couple of weeks since I had seen them and the two little ones were so excited to see Auntie.  We played on the swing set, and made fake Smores (bark for graham crackers, rocks for marshmallows, and fallen acorns for the chocolate).  They picked sticks and we took colorful fall leaves rolled up, then poked through our sticks to make our fake fire...LOL!  It was great to see them use such imagination.  I loved every minute of it. 

Any ways, so I am posting a little late Sunday night for my Savi Sunday but I'm here.  Tonight I am showing two projects using Designer Series Paper that is included in the DSP Sale (ending October 31, 2020). 

Card 1:  using Poinsettia Place DSP


  • Card base is Crumb Cake cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • DSP strips are all 4" and random 1/2" wide to about 3/4" wide(you will have to see what you have and fits across)
  • I adhered my next to each other but you can put space between (SEE NEXT PROJECT BELOW)
  • Words from So Sentiment stamp set and stamped with Crumb Cake Ink
  • Words cut from Layering Oval Dies
  • Brushed Metallic leaves from Forever Flourishing Dies

I just love how this one came out!

SAVI Sunday - Episode 34 Mirror Stamping

SAVI Sunday 34 - Mirror Stamping

Thank you for joining me for my next Savi Sunday video showing you how to do Mirror Stamping, also known as reverse stamping.  I am highlighting the Dove of Hope stamp set from the bundle available in the 2020 Holiday catalog (2020 August-December mini catalog).  You'll have to forgive my photography this time as I am away from home and my usual process.  :)


You can see my video HERE to see the easy method I do using the Stamparatus and Silicone craft sheet.  You will stamp the dove on the right onto the Smoky Slate card stock.  Remove the Smoky Slate CS and place your silicone mat into the Stamparatus and stamp the dove.  Now flip over your CS and place into Stampartus and rub over area where you stamped on the silicone mat to transfer the ink.  The video shows this process so it may be easier to understand. 

Card Details

  • Cherry Cobbler card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Smoky Slate CS 4 x 5-1/4
  • Dove and words are inked in Misty Moonlight

Thanks for popping by and don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Cocktail Holder

Total Fun Project!  I did a Facebook Live video a few weeks ago showing how I made these.  They are so fun and easy to make that you could make as a fun party favor in no time. 

The Rainbow Glimmer Paper is a definite personal favorite and it is the perfect thickness for this project.  Tie it off with Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the 2020 holiday catalog, and a tag... Love this project. 


Project Details:

  • cut Rainbow Glimmer paper to 5-1/2 x 9
  • score it at 3-3/4 and 4-1/4 on both sides... along 5-1/2 side
  • score at 1/2" on the long side

Here is a close-up of the tag I made.  I stamped the small word phrases in Melon Mambo ink and the word Cocktails in Mango Melody.  Take a scrap piece of Whisper white and stamp the glass in Mango Melody, filler glass stamp in Mango Melody then cut die.  Use a Dimensional to add the glass to the tag.
