Double the fun with Twinkle Twinkle

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale
WooooHoooo! I did it, 31 days of creating with Designer Series Paper! Amazing what can be done with DSP when you actually cut into those beautiful pages.

Just before we get to todays project I'd like to say how honoured I am to have been selected as a favourite for CTS #280, what a surprise! CAS(E) this sketch has been an amazing source of inspiration for me with my DSP challenge, and I'm back again today with CTS #282


 CTS #282

The stripes in this sketch immediately grabbed  my attention, then the choice... what DSP to use? After viewing the teams creations, I decided on Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, the coordinating stripes and star patterns were too beautiful to pass up (woot that's 2 pieces of DSP in this card), and work perfectly with Animal Outing to create a baby card:



After stamping with Memento ink, I coloured with Stampin' Blends and used the Colour lifter to lighten and soften. My sentiment is embossed, and I added a touch of signature bling with Silver & Pool Party Baker's Twine.

Punch Art Balloon

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale

I've been unwell the past few days, I've not felt like doing much on the crafting front, and, well, my mojo isn't quite here so, I popped on to You Tube to checkout what is going on in the crafting world - there are always great techniques to see & learn from.

Todays's card is a CASE from a Jennifer McGuire you tube tutorial - I've changed it up a bit and used all Stampin' Up! item's to create my Punch Art project.



I used a large Layering Oval to create my balloon, and bow from the Cookie Cutter punch for where the string ties to the balloon, as this month is a DSP Challenge for me, I added a strip of Brights DSP to the edge of the card.  The fun sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday, and of course I added a little bling - metallic pearls

Christmas Bells Under the Mistletoe

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale
I decided to play along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCC300 as the sketch this week fits in with my DSP challenge perfectly!


I love the idea of a strip of colour or DSP on the side of a card,  and when I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to try out an item form the limited edition Blended Seasons bundle, here's, what I was inspired to create:


I coloured the Christmas bells with Stampin' Blends, cut with the coordinating die, then trimmed the ribbon off one of them so that I could layer under the main image. I also decided to stamp and fussy cut some holly and layer under the top of the bell too.



I wrapped Gold Metallic Thread around the edge of the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper 10 times, then for the shimmer on the bells I added Wink of Stella, then I gold embossed the sentiment on a black banner, and added Metallic Pearls to embellish.



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 love to be yours-  why not take advantage of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion and create with me?

Thanks with Tropical Chic

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale


As you might know, this month I have been exploring Designer Series Paper, I must confess, Tropical Escape is right up there on my "love" list, yes it does feature pink, but looking past that it has beautiful tropical elements as well as dots and linear designs for many creations.

 TGIF

 Freshly Made Sketches
When I saw the sketch at this weeks Freshly Made Sketches, my mind went straight to the Tropical Chic stamp set, and as it is still July that means DSP in my project, and I opted with the gorgeous repetitive frangipani background for my project to tie in with the TGIF challenge too!


I started by using a daubers to sponge So Saffron in the centre of my flowers, and then sponged Blushing Bride on the edge, repeating the process with Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz on the leaves, then cut with the coordinating Tropical Thinlets - this is one of my favourite techniques for applying and blending colours directly on stamps.



Next I created the frame using a Stitched Shapes square, and selecting an internal die from Layering Squares, I cut one in Crumb Cake and 2 in Whisper White, cutting a "full" square of Whisper White to stamp the mask sentiment. Then all that was left was to create the arrangement, Oh and I added some Artisan Pearls to accent the centre of the flowers. If you love this card, then you will also love that you can bundle the stamp set and dies together and SAVE 10%!
