Hey ladies!! Today I'm sharing a fun idea for using up some of that Designer Series Paper stash that's building up in your craft room! These cards work with any Designer Series Paper, you just have to be mindful of the orientation when you make your cuts. I'm sharing a quick video (under 13 minutes!) over on YouTube HERE, that shows you how I took three strips of DSP and turned each into a base card. I also share how I decorated the templates I created, to give you one idea.
You can find the CUTTING GUIDE that I mentioned, right HERE. Keep reading if you'd like a bit more information on what I used, and if you'd like a closer look at the finished cards or wish to pin the photos to Pinterest. There's a SHOPPING LINK below, too, if you need any supplies!
I love the way these cards turned out! The detail gnome dies cut the perfect sized gnome for the front of these cards and they are bold enough that they don't get lost in the pattern of the different sheets of DSP.
If you missed the video, the DSP I used is from the Happy Forest Friends 12x12 pack out of the 2022-23 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog. The Gnome Dies (159625) were in the July-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog, but they carried over! They actually coordinate with the new Friend Gnomes stamp set from the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog.
I love the whimsy that's created by pairing the Gnome dies with the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper. You can use any DSP and stamp set combinations to create cards in this way. It's a terrific way to use up DSP and show off not only one side of the gorgeous paper, but BOTH sides!!
Did you enjoy these cards?! Please give me a shout, either by commenting here or on the video. Thanks for spending a little time with me today! ~ Kris - Queen City Stamp Art
