Tropical Chic Card - Tropical Escape DSP


Here's another card featuring Designer Series Paper (DSP) that's a part of the Buy 3, Get 1 Free DSP Sale this month. I'm having so much fun making cards with my new DSP! I placed my DSP order as soon as the sale started! LoL The DSP I used on this card is called Tropical Escape 6" x 6" DSP.

Want to see the other projects I've made with my DSP from this sale?  Click Here!

This is also the last card that will be made at my DSP Stamp Camp next week. I like all of the cards for this stamp camp, but I think this one is my favorite. The colors in the DSP are so pretty together!

This card also features the beautiful bundle that coordinates with the DSP called, Tropical Chic Bundle. The bundle includes the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and the Tropical Thinlits Dies. Purchasing the bundle, instead of purchasing both products separately, will save you 10%!


Dimensions:
  • Granny Apple Green:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Shaded Spruce:  3" x 2" (greeting tag mat)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer) & 2-1/8" x 11" (leaves, flowers and greeting tag)
  • Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (DSP):  (3) 3/4" x 5-1/4"
  • Tropical Elements:  (1) leaf & (1) flower
  • Silver Baker's Twine:  4"
Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Whisper White embossed piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Die. Attach the three DSP strips to the left side of the piece (see picture). Fold the Granny Apple Green piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the Whisper White embossed piece to the center of the card front.
  2. Ink the widest palm leaf from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set with the Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink a Sponge Dauber with the Shaded Spuce Classic Stampin' Pad. Sponge the edges of the stamp, re-inking the dauber as needed. Stamp the leaf on one end of the long Whisper White strip. Repeat this step one more time to stamp the second leaf. Stamp the flower stamp onto the same piece two times using the Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "You Are the Greatest" stamp onto the same piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Die-cut the leaves and flowers out with their coordinating dies from the Tropical Thinlits dies. Holding the Tailored Tag Punch upside down, line the greeting up into the right side of the punch, and  punch it out.
  3. Punch another tag out of the Shaded Spruce piece using the same punch. Cutting horizontally, cut the tag in half. Put SNAIL Adhesive onto the back of the greeting tag, and attach a Shaded Spruce piece to the top of the greeting tag, and the other one to the bottom, making sure about an 1/8" shows from the front on the top and bottom of the greeting tag. Attach the flowers to the left end of the tag. They will be hanging off the edge, especially the top one. Put a Stampin' Dimensional onto the back of the top flower, and two or three onto the back of the tag. Do not remove the paper-backing yet.
  4. Lay the tag down onto the center of the right side of the card. Holding the tag in place attach the palm leaves to the left side of the tag, tucking the bottoms of the leaves under the tag. Once the leaves are attached, Pick the tag up, remove the paper-backing from the Dimensionals on the back of the tag and flower, and attach it to the card.
  5. Thread the Silver Baker's Twine through the holes in a flower button from the Tropical Elements. Tie the twine into a double-knot. Trim the twine ends, and then untwist the twine ends apart to fray them a bit. Attach the button to the bottom, right of the tag with a Mini Glue Dot. Attach a leaf embellishment from the Tropical Elements, and attach it to the bottom right of the flower button with a Mini Glue Dot, tucking the rounded end of the leaf under the tag a bit.
Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

Blended Seasons Thank You - Wood Textures DSP


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you've had a great day! I've been able to make a couple cards today, and this is one of them. This features the Blended Seasons Bundle, which is a part of the Color Your Season promotion in August. This promotion also includes a new set of Watercolor Pencils, and I used them here. This will be one of the cards made at my DSP Stamp Camp next week.

Wrap the Lace Trim around the right edge of the DSP, and attach the lace trim ends to the back of the Crumb Cake piece using scotch tape. Fold the Early Espresso piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the Crumb Cake piece to the center of the card front.
  2. Stamp the large floral stamp from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set onto the largest Whisper White piece using the Jet Black Stazon Pad. Color the center parts of the flowers with the Cherry Cobbler pencil from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2. Color the entire flower, including the Cherry Cobbler parts with the Flirty Flamingo pencil. With a Blender Pen, soften the Cherry Cobbler section with it. Brush the Blender Pen onto a scrap piece of paper until color is gone. Soften the Flirty Flamingo parts with the Blender Pen, and then blend the two colors together a little bit where they meet. Color the small flower buds with the Cherry Cobbler pencil, and soften them up with the Blender Pen. Clean the Blender Pen as before. Color the flower centers with the Crushed Curry pencil, and soften it up with the Blender Pen. Clean Blender Pen.

Then, die-cut the center of the frame out with the medium-sized frame die. When finished, there will be a frame that has "stitching" on the outer and inner sides of the frame. Centering the flowers inside the frame, attach the frame to the flower piece. Trim off any white cardstock showing from the outside of the frame. Attach it to the center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the "Thank You" stamp to the center of the smallest Whisper White piece using the Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin' Pad. Punch both ends of the piece by inserting each end all the way into the Banner Triple Punch (using the thinnest, center guide), and punching. Die-cut the leaves die two times out of the Garden Green piece. Attach one to the back of the top, right side of the banner, and the other one to the back of the bottom, left side of the banner. Attach the banner across the bottom part of the flower layer (see picture).

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

This card also features one of my favorite Designer Series Papers (DSP) in the catalog, Garden Impressions. This 6" x 6" DSP is one of the packs included in the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE DSP Sale this month. You can see all of the cards I've made featuring DSP that is a part of this sale by CLICKING HERE.

Stitched All Around - Petal Promenade DSP


Happy Friday, everyone! Are you ready for the weekend? I'm sure you are! LoL Well, I have a card to share with you today. I was at Susan Smith's (fellow demonstrator) house a few days ago, and she had us make the card below, and it features the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP). I LOVE how she had us stamp the large flower from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set onto the circle die-cut, and then stamp the greeting on top. It really is pretty!


I'm doing a DSP Stamp Camp in a couple weeks at my house, and I wanted to CASE her card for my camp. I thought about using the exact card I made at her house, but I used this particular paper design from the DSP pack on my July Host Code Thank You Card. I wanted to be able to show you all a different paper design from this DSP pack, so I changed it up a bit. I decided to decorate the inside of the card, too. I used the Stitched All Around Stamp Set, which can be purchased together with the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies as a bundle at 10% off.

FYI:  This beautiful DSP is one of the DSP packs that is a part of the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE DSP Sale. CLICK HERE to find out more!

As you can see, we both used the Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon on our cards, and you can get this ribbon FREE from me with a qualifying order in July using this month's host code. CLICK HERE to find out how.


Dimensions:

  • Fresh Fig:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 4" x 1/2" (strip)
  • Blushing Bride:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Tranquil Tide:  2" x 2" (circle die-cut)
  • Whisper White:  2-1/2" x 1-3/4" (scallop circle) & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
  • Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP):  2" x 5-1/4"
  • Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:  8"
  • Rose Metallic Thread: Enough to wrap around hand four times

Instructions:

  1. Emboss the Blushing Bride piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the DSP piece to the left side of the piece. Lay the cross-stitch border die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies across the Fresh Fig strip, lining the long edge of the die without the cross-stitch with one of the long edges of the cardstock strip. Run it through the Big Shot. Do the same thing with the other long side of the strip. Attach it across the bottom half of the piece (see pictures). Fold the Fresh Fig card base piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed/DSP piece to the center of the card front.
  2. Stamp the "thank you" stamp from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set onto one side of the Whisper White scallop circle piece using the Fresh Fig Classic Stampin' Pad. Punch it out with the 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. Die-cut a circle out of the Tranquil Tide piece using the largest circle die from the same die set as above. Attach the scallop circle to the center of the Tranquil Tide circle.
  3. Put some SNAIL Adhesive onto the back of the Tranquil Tide circle. Fold the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon in half, and attach it to the back of the circle. The "loop" fold of the ribbon should be on the top, right, and the two ends should be on the bottom, left (separate the ends a bit). Trim the ribbon ends at an angle. Wrap the Rose Metallic Thread around your hand four times, cut, and slip it off of your hand when finished. Attach the center of the thread loops to the back of the circle by putting a Stampin' Dimensional over it. There should be thread loops on each side of the circle, like the tulle ribbon. Add two more Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the circle, and attach it to the right side of the DSP, over the cross-stitched strip (see pictures).
  4. Inside of card:  Stamp the cross-stitch stamp a few times across the bottom of the largest Whisper White piece using the Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the vine border stamp across the top of the cross-stitch using the Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the piece to the inside of the card (see bottom picture).

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
