Pink All Around

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale

You wouldn't believe that this paper is from Tropical Escape, but it is!!! I am so in my element, pink all around! The inspiration for this project is the sketch from Fab Friday


When I saw the sentiment frame, I immediately thought of the Stitched Label Framelits - so that was the base for my project, so I thought I may as well use the whole bundle and stamp from Stitched All Around too.



With the stamping sorted, I needed DSP as per my personal challenge for July. Pastels came to mind as Stitched All Around is detailed and delicate... yes, my mind went straight to pink, and on the reverse side of Tropical Escape there are gorgeous Blushing Bride patterns, 2 for 2, DSP sorted too!



I added a highlight of Crumb Cake for contrast, and to coordinate with the Burlap Ribbon, and couldn't resist adding the delicate/feminine Mini Ruffled Ribbon, and a touch of bling with Artisan Pearls.

Lift Your Spirits with Best Route

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale
It's been ages since I've joined in on the fun at the Global Design Project, and this week I have made it over and taken advantage of the sketch to continue with my personal challenge of using Designer Series Paper on every card I make in July - so far I've managed 15 cards in 15 days!

I took this challenge head on, and also created a masculine card - a nemesis for me, flowers, glitter and bling are much more natural to me, here is what I was inspired to create.



The Best Route Designer Series Paper provided the backdrop for the air balloons from the Lift Me Up Stamp set, and I also used the coordinating Washi Tape too!


I was surprised how quickly this came together - I have been looking at this paper for the past week with no luck of a creation, and then, bam there it was, yay! Amazing how a sketch can make you see different items in a stamp set or paper pattern.


Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more projects using Designer Series paper this month - if you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love if you would shop with me, why not take advantage of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion and start creating?

Christmas in July

I was drawing a creative blank, so  had a look at some challenges. I headed over to  Stamp Ink Paper, a Chistmas In July theme, hmmm now over to Freshly Made Sketches for a hint of what my next DSP design could be, was in luck, this weeks sketch was just perfect!


As soon as I saw the sketch I knew that the side strip would be DSP...... but what to choose? I looked around my desk and sitting there was Blended Seasons stamp set, just calling to be opened for the first time.... I looked a the stamps, and I had it - a Christmas in July card with Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, here's what I was inspired to create:


I coloured the stamped image with Stampin' Blends, I love the depth of colour and shadows that can be created with these - I did this on a layer of Whisper White the same size as the card front so that inside of the card is clean and white. Then I gold embossed the sentiment on Basic Black Card stock.



For a added touch of bling I wrapped Gold Metallic Thread around the edge of the DSP strip layer several times, then adhered the layer to the card base, adding a final touch of metallic pearls.

Vintage Share What You Love

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale
My project today has a bit of a vintage theme, I've used 2 designs from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper - you just can't get enough of a good thing!



I used a number of items from the Share What You Love Suite to complete this card:
I also added a little detail with an offcut of Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut with the cross stitch die from Stitched Labels Framelits, some Rose Metallic Thread and Faceted Dots.


The pearlised finish of the flowers on the DSP, the font and the Crumbcake background on both pattern designs gives a wonderful vintage feel to this card.
