What A Little Tearing Can Do

Hi!  Welcome to June!  Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks – but hopefully things have settled down enough that I can get back to regular posting.

This month I am featuring Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog – especially since you can purchase select ones at 15% off!  How awesome is that?

We all have scraps and today’s card will help you deal with those with this quick and easy card.

Inked Boutique, DSP, Scraps, Wonderful Thoughts, InColor2023-25, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #dspscraps, #incolor2325

I used 1″ strips of the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper (on sale for 15% off this month) by 5 1/4″.  I started with 6 pieces, then due to how much I ripped or overlapped when I adhered to the base, I needed to add one more strip.  So, I’d say have 6-7 strips of DSP on hand to start.

As you can see, I ripped down the right hand side of each strip – before adhering to the Boho Blue card base.  There are 6 different DSP strips – the left most and right most papers are the same pattern.  You can choose to just pick 2 patterns or as many different patterns as you like.

The sentiment is from Wonderful Thoughts which has coordinating dies that cut around the word (not sure for this card) stamped in Boho Blue ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  The Double Oval punch is used for the sentiment and the Boho Blue layer behind it.   To finish the card, a piece of Boho Blue ribbon is placed behind the sentiment.

With all the fun papers we have, using up the scraps in this manner will help reduce your scrap pile, allow for quick, fun and pretty cards.  I hope you will give it a try!

It’s A Peachy Day

Hi!  Happy Labor Day weekend!  It’s a bit dreary here today, so hoping this cards brings a little sunshine your way.  Had some fun with the Sweet As a Peach stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper.

Friendship, Sweet As A Peach, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2021AnnualCatalog, #usethosescraps

I love using up scraps of Designer Series Paper and this layout is perfect for that!  The base of the card is Calypso Coral – 4 1/4 x 11″ – score at 5 1/2″ and fold.

A layer of Basic Black is placed on top measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″  A piece of Calypso Coral measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″ holds are 4 Designer Series Paper scraps.  The polka dot rectangles are each 1 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ while the smaller peach rectangles are 1 3/4″ x 2″.  Use Seal adhesive to adhere them to the Calypso Coral layer.

The Scalloped Contours dies are perfect for our main stamped image.  Use a Blending Brush or apply Pear Pizzazz ink as a background.

The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and die cut with the coordinating die.  The peaches are stamped in Calypso Coral and die cut with the coordinating die.  The sentiment is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and also die cut with the coordinating die.

Use dimensionals to attach the leaves, peaches and sentiment to the Scallopped Contour rectangle.

I hope today’s card inspires you to try using up some of your scraps!
