Yesterday I shared the 3 new Sale-A-Bration items. My favorite new item is the 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack! I need a lot of thank you cards so I decided to play with the new glimmer paper to make some cards.
I have used this simple card design before. You can change the DSP and choose a variety of sentiments then cut them out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits. I used DSP from Floral Boutique, Succulent Garden, and Blooms & Bliss. The DSP is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and matted with a layer of cardstock that measures 3 3/8 x 3 5/8. I chose colors to coordinate with the new glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration…Bermuda Bay with Night of Navy, Sweet Sugarplum with Old Olive, and Mint Macaron with Island Indigo.
The sentiments are from Suite Sayings, Suite Sentiments, and Dragonfly Dreams though many others would fit as well. I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut the butterflies from each of the different colors of glimmer paper. The 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack comes with 12 sheets; 4 each of 3 colors (Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum).
Here’s a look at each of the cards with envelopes to coordinate. Which one is your favorite?

The Designer Tin of Cards Kit adds up to fun! Read all the way to the bottom because I have a special offer for you today! I love the contents in this kit and the final results are pretty amazing! When I offer my classes locally I always like to give alternative ideas. I know the teacher in me should follow the directions, but what can I say, I’m all about choices and inspiring others to see the possibilities. Here are some alternative ideas to go with the Designer Tin of Cards Kit.
Everyone needs birthday cards. I sell more birthday cards at the shop than any other. Let’s face it, wouldn’t you rather get a bright and cheery card on your birthday than a facebook post? As you can see, just changing the sentiment, orientation, or placement of the balloons changes it up so you are not making everyone the same card. The kit comes with 4 of each design. I tried to show the original and other possibilities. I love the way our Designer Series Paper packs coordinate with the designs in the kit so I could make my envelopes match. I just think it ties it all together and is a preview of what’s inside.
The top right card is the design that was intended with the kit. You can see how simple it is to change it up. I usually don’t stamp the inside of my cards until I’m giving them out as I try to choose a card that’s special for each person. If you notice the bottom right card is the one my daughter gave to my husband for his birthday. You can see that post HERE. All I did was stamp “DAD” under the Just For You to personalize it before she gave it to him. The kit comes with the washi tape, sequins, mini clips, twine, and everything else you need to make the cards.
I love navy and white together. So clean and crisp! I thought this design would make a great wedding or anniversary card as well as birthday. The directions intend for the large floral die to peek out from under the sentiment but I thought it was just too pretty to hide behind so I layered it on top. The kit comes with color photos and step by step directions to make it easy to complete.
The top right card is the design from the kit. All I did for the one to the left is change the sentiment and offset the DSP behind the sentiment. The birthday card uses the leftover circle die from the Moroccan set above. (I stamped directly on the DSP.) Pinterest is a great source for alternative ideas. Once you get the kit in your hands and start playing with placement you’ll find even more ways to change it up!
Here’s a Special Offer for you…If you purchase the Designer Tin of Cards Project Kit through my online store, I will send you a set of my stick on labels for the tin dividers, the extra ribbon I used, as well as the directions for the alternative ideas. If you purchase the Designer Tin of Cards Project Kit and Designer Tin of Cards photopolymer stamp set through my online store, I will send you the above PLUS the DSP to decorate your envelopes to match. This would be a great kit to birthday or Christmas gift for a friend or get a group of friends together and have your own fun afternoon!

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP! This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am using the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper. This pack has 12 sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs in Night of Navy and Whisper White…so classic!
I like Fun Fold Cards. My card today is a Joy Fold Card. I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 4 1/4 x 8 1/2. I scored it at 5 1/2. I cut a piece of the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered it to the inside of the card. I cut another piece of DSP at 2 3/4 x 4 and adhered it to the front flap. I made a second card in Night of Navy to make the joy fold. I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 3 x 8 and scored it at 4 inches. I attached this piece to the DSP on the inside of the card making sure the folded end was on the right. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White and adhered it to the front flap. I tied a piece of organza ribbon around the front flap and tied a bow. This serves to tuck in the folded card on top. I thought it needed a little bling so I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Here’s some photos showing how the joy fold opens and the inside of the card. You can see I cut another piece of 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White and DSP for the inside of the card. I also used DSP on the envelope to coordinate.
Here’s a card from the Designer Tin of Cards Kit which features a card using the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.
