Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. You can earn this paper pack for FREE with a $50 purchase from my online store.
I made a set of note cards using each of the designs. How quick & easy is this?!
Simply cut the DSP the same size as your card and adhere to the front. At this point you can choose to color with your favorite coloring tool (watercolor pencils, markers, sponge brayer, blender pens, or aqua painter) or keep it plain and simple. (I do love black & white!) You can even add a die cut or sentiment. The new Dragonfly Dreams Detailed Dies coordinate with this DSP. I am giving this set as a gift so I opted to include some dies and sentiments and let the recipient decide.
I decorated stamp cases to hold my cards. The standard stamp case will hold up to 10 note cards & envelopes and the wide stamp case will hold 10 – 20. You could even include a set of the new Stampin’ Up Watercolor Pencils in the case. (I love these!!) I have given these decorated stamp cases as gifts before. (Click HERE to see.) They say, “Give what you would love to receive.”
Check out this short video showing the different coloring techniques you can use with Inside the Lines Specialty Designer Series Paper!
I love all the different ways you can color this paper!
I cut a piece of 7 1/4 x 11 1/4 Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper and used the watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color. I love to color! (Hmmm, this could explain why I am a preschool teacher.) When complete just slide into the sleeve on the stamp case.
I had so much fun making these! I also made this card and matching envelope to give to a coworker.
I thought a set of cards to color would be a perfect gift while she recovers from surgery. I’m sure she’ll appreciate some note cards to send thank you notes to everyone who brought meals, etc. For the standard size case I cut a 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 piece of DSP and this time I left it plain. The DSP covers the front and the spine but not the back of the case. I figured with the cards in the case the back looked fine. She can always take out the insert and color that too if she wants! After she uses the cards she can use the case to store the watercolor pencils or markers and this way she can easily see what’s inside with a quick glance at the back.
Which gift set would you prefer…colored or plain?
Here’s my special with purchase for today…purchase $50 or more from my online store and I will send you 4 note cards & envelopes plus 4 panels of Inside the Lines Specialty DSP and some pre-cut dies and sentiments so you can make all 4 cards shown today! Have fun coloring them for yourself or give them as a gift! Remember every $50 ordered qualifies for a FREE Sale-A-Bration gift. Be sure to enter the Hostess Code EPGDT3KF when you check out.
