W is for Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack

Welcome to my ABC’s with DSP series. Today I am featuring the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper stack has 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 double-sided 6 x 6 designs…perfect for lots of projects!

I was planning my upcoming workshops this weekend and decided to make some tags for my Boxes, Bags, and Tags class next month. I love to make tags for the gifts I give and I also like to give tags as a gift.  It makes a great little hostess gift for your holiday parties.

Handmade tags using Stampin’ Up! Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and Perfect Pines Framelits

The patterns in the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack have a warmhearted, homespun feeling.  I like to layer my tags so I can write a little note on the layer underneath or just stamp to and from.  My tags measure 2 x 4 1/4 (you get 10 from a sheet of cardstock).  I punched the cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I  cut the trees and stars using the Perfect Pines Framelits.  The stars are cut from scraps of Delightful Dijon. I adhered the trees to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and used a glue dot for the star. The sentiment from Flurry of Wishes is stamped using Basic Black ink.  I tied the Burlap Ribbon with some Lined Thread and made a bow to complete the tags.  These are simple and quick to make!

Here’s another idea for quick and easy gift giving using Stampin’ Up! Gift Boxes.

Wouldn’t you love to give or receive a card like this? I love to receive handwritten notes and cards and I have a special “treasure” box where I save them.  I like to go through them when I need a “pick me up” or just want to remember the moment.  I have a couple of cards and letters from my dad and grandmother who have passed away and I love seeing their handwriting and rereading their letters.

Sharing handmade kindness makes a difference!

STARTING NOV. 1 you can purchase the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies used on the card above.    You can bet I will be up at the crack of dawn placing my order. Let me know if you want to order a set and I can add it to my order. (You will save on shipping.) I love the sweet edging the dies create and classic shapes that coordinate with Stampin’ Up! Layering Squares, Circles and Ovals Dies.  Stampin’ Up! is offering 25% off select stamps that coordinate with the new stitched framelits. What a great savings!!

V is for Very Vanilla DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am sharing 2 cards I made using Very Vanilla from This Christmas Designer Series Paper.

img_5752

I think the snowflake DSP makes great thank you cards to send after Christmas.  These would make great teacher or hostess gifts as well as stocking stuffers! I always make thank you cards to give to my children for Christmas so they are all set to thank family members for their gifts.

img_5755

The Very Vanilla card base measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  My snowflake DSP measures 5 1/4 x 4.  I cut the thanks from the Hello You Thinlits and adhered it to Very Vanilla cardstock that measures 1 5/8 x 5 1/2″.  The basic black layer is 1 3/4 x 5 1/2. My husband often asks me for thank you cards and this one will work for him.

The musical notes DSP is perfect for note cards for yourself or to give as a gift. I don’t know the music director at our school very well but he was kind enough to give me a guitar pic I needed for a special card for someone. (I’ll post that card another time.)  I made him a set of note cards to show my appreciation. I used the Crumb Cake note cards and Envelopes. I say this all the time but this is a great bang for your buck!  You get 20 cards and envelopes for $6.00.  I use the white note cards all the time for thank you cards.  I think this crumb cake note card makes a great masculine card.  I had some extra clips from the Tin of Cards kit so I added them here.

The musical notes DSP measures 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 and is layered on a 3 x 3 piece of basic black cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases on Very Vanilla with Basic Black ink and punched it out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.  I punched the basic black circle with the 1 3/4″ circle punch and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Check out this gorgeous gift card holder showcasing the Very Vanilla musical notes paper along with some new dies that are going to be available Nov. 1st! These new Stitched Shapes Framelits are going to be such a beautiful addition to cards and projects. Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) to preorder yours today!

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

img_5744

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.

img_5725

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.
