U is for Unique DSP (and you could win some blog candy!!!)


Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  Today I am making some Unique DSP.  You can find inspiration anywhere.  Today mine came as I was wrapping a gift and needed to make a card to go with it.  The paisley pattern on the wrapping paper reminded me of Stampin’ Up!’s  Paisley & Posies Stamp Set.  So I gathered my markers, stamp set, and cardstock and decided to make my own designer series paper to coordinate with the wrapping paper.


I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I randomly stamped 3 images from the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Next was the fun part…coloring! I used Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz, and Wild Wasabi markers to color on the cardstock. (The Wild Wasabi turned out to be darker when colored on the cardstock so I switched to using the Pear Pizzazz.)

Next I cut a piece of 5 1/2 x 3 1/4 piece from my unique DSP and layered it on a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock that measures 5 1/2 x 3 1/2. I adhered this to my Whisper White card base. I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Blossoms with Sweet Sugarplum ink and cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I cut a scallop oval from Sweet Sugarplum to layer my sentiment.  Most of the cards I make seem to evolve as I create and this one was no exception.  I wish I could say I planned it that the flower would match up perfectly but, I was playing around with where to lay the sentiment and noticed how cool that worked out!  I attached the layered sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals then I used the Paisley Framelits to cut out a flower from my “unique” DSP.  I cut off the stem before attaching it with a glue dot.


I used more of my DSP to decorate my envelope to match.


Stamp Sets: Paisleys & Posies, Birthday Blossoms  Inks: Sweet Sugarplum (ink & marker), Wild Wasabi/Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach (markers)  Papers: Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White  Tools & Accessories: Layering Ovals Framelits, Paisley Framelits

  12. No need to count me in on the blog candy (since I’m your lucky upline). Congrats on your 100th post. I admire your talent, determination and ability to dazzle with creative and inspiring blog posts.

  13. Jeanie, i love your dsp. Your card and envelope are gorgeous! It’s hard picking a favorite dsp. I’ve had lots of fun with Candy Cane Lane. I think fruit stand or fiesta are my favorites. Congrats on your 100th post!!

  14. Thanks for the inspiration of creating your own DSP. Never thought to do that, but how many times have I thought a particular set would be great to have DSP! Congratulations on your 100th post–enjoy your success!

  15. Woo hoo! 100th blog! I knew you could do it! Your creations are so beautiful loving all the pink! Congratulations!

  17. Wow Jeanie you sure reached 100 fast! I admire your dedication and tenacity. Your blog is terrific. My favorite DSP was Fruit Stand until Petals & Posies came along. When they retire with the holiday catalog, I’ll return to Fruit Stand…but then again the new Occasions catalog will be here soon!

  18. I know I’m late to the party, but I’d like to add how impressive and creative you are! I keep all the cards you’ve sent me–after displaying them for 3+ months. When I see your projects I feel overwhelmed and think I could never duplicate them…but then I read your directions and they seem manageable. Great work, and congratulations on reaching 100!!
