Creative Uses For Designer Series Paper

Hello, and welcome to my blog.  

Today I am showing some creative uses for Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Stampin' Up! has some amazing DSP collections, from florals and animals, to geometric patterns.  There scenic papers are fabulous if that's your style, such as the New Thoughtful Journey DSP.  

I recently participated in a card challenge, and these are some of the great projects fellow demonstrators submitted.   These first three samples were submitted by Pat Bowman, Marsha Pappalardo and Judy Getty: 

Here's some quick links to some of the products used:

A Unique Fold Birthday Card

Hello there ~ and welcome to my blog.  

It's my birthday today!  And I received this awesome card in the mail from my fabulous upline, Linda Bauwin.  I love the unique pleated fold panel, giving the card a lot of character.  You can see Linda's blog on this here

We celebrated my birthday, as usual, on Father's Day.  It was born on Father's Day and dad and I are extremely close so I never mind sharing the day with him.  


This card features the Flowering Zinnias 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  If I had to guess, the flower patterned paper is 4" x 7" and scored every 1/2" on the 7" side.  The folds are held down with Stampin' Dimensionals to give each fold some height.  (I went to Linda's blog and those are the correct measurements). 

Card base is Old Olive card stock (CS) and the background and flower DSP pieces are matted with Granny Apple Green.  GAG is one of my favorite colors too. 

The sentiment and scalloped oval are from the Unbounded Love Bundle. 

The card is finished off with flowers using Berry Burst  card stock and the Petal Park Builder Punch, 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer paper and Iridescent Foil Gems. 

Thank you for letting me share!

Before I go, just a reminder that until June 30, 2024, stamp bundles are an EXTRA 10% off as well as our die cut machines.

Card Shares Featuring Lily Pond Lane

Hi there - and welcome to my blog.  Today I am sharing two card projects featuring the Lily Pond Lane Suite Collection

Every time there is a new catalog release, my upline, Linda Bauwin creates a card challenge open to her entire downline.  She preorders certain product like designer papers and sends it for free to anyone that signs up to participate.  This allows us to see product samples that maybe we would not have ordered ourselves.  She sets criteria such as we must make at least 2 cards, is it supposed to be a fancy fold, is it to feature a specific color... then we make our samples and send to her for voting.  If you are a winner (decided by an outside source), Linda rewards us!  Its a great way to see a lot of card samples.  So that is what I am sharing today. 

My first example was created by Brenda Tryon.  I love this fold and the cute  design of the Lily Pond Lane 6" x 6" DSP.

  • She used some Pretty in Pink card stock, ribbon and embellishment, which is a 2024-2026 In Color. 
  • Aren't those ducks cute!
  • The banner die is from Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Words are from the So Sincere cling stamp set

The second example I have for you was created by fellow demonstrator Tracy Jurek:

  • The embellishments are the fabulous 2024 2026 In Color Shimmer Gems (a must have in my book)
  • Words are from Layers of Beauty stamp set

I hope you enjoyed these two fabulous cards.  All product is linked below.

Creating Monochromatic Cards

Hello!  And welcome back to my Blog.  

I have been meaning to post these projects for you so I am finally doing it.  I love creating monochromatic cards = cards featuring (basically) one color.  And, these are perfect for those who took advantage of last months sign up special and received the following items for free:  all the New 2024-2026 In Color ink pads, markers, card stock and designer series paper stack.  It was a great special!  

So first, I'm highlighting what the 5 In Color spectrum are:  Pretty In Pink, Peach Pie, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash and Petunia Pop. 

2024 2026 In Colors

These are such great colors and there are SO many awesome products that are available right now.  You can see them HERE.   In my cards below, you can see the fabulous Glimmer Paper and Shimmer Gems along with the 6x6 Designer Paper Stack

I used the Eyelet 3D Embossing folder on the background, Heartfelt Hexagon Punch for the tag, the floral die cut and flower stamps are from the Thoughtful Wishes Bundle.   

These would be great for so many ocassions.
