I had a request to make a simple thinking of you card. Here is my card.
I started with a piece of Sahara Sand for my card base. (This is my go to neutral.) I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set onto the card base using Memento Black ink. I stamped more leaves on Mint Macaron cardstock and the flower on a scrap of Whisper White. I punched the flower out with the Pansy Punch and fussy cut the leaves with my Paper Snips (Love these scissors!). I attached the leaves with glue dots and the flower is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the white flower and stamped my envelope to match. Quick & easy! I hope it meets the simple card request.

Tonight is Girls Night Out to celebrate my friend Jamie’s birthday! WooHoo! November is just one big long birthday celebration ( 4 down, 3 to go)! Here is the card I made for Jamie!
I received the new Stitched Shapes Framelits last week and couldn’t wait to play with them! I used the largest stitched square shape to highlight the sentiment box. I love how this looks and I really love how easy it is to achieve perfect stitched detail!
My card base is Mint Macaron with a 4 x 5 1/2″ layer of DSP from the 2015 – 2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack I added a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2″ strip of Whisper White in the center. I used the Big Shot to cut out the stitched square framelit and then stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette and the leaves and sentiment in Mint Macaron. I like the tone on tone on the pansy and leaves. I used the Pansy Punch to punch out the flower and fussy cut the leaves with my paper snips. I layered the flowers on top of each other with a Stampin’ Dimensional and added the leaves behind with a glue dot. The silver ribbon in the corner adds some texture. I cut a metallic foil doily in half and adhered each piece behind the layered squares. I like that it’s a simple card with a little sparkle. I stamped the envelope and the inside of the card to match using the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP! This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am using the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper to make 5 cards and envelopes from just one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP.
I love working with one sheet of 12 x 12 paper and seeing what I can make. I wanted some quick cards so I cut my 12 x 12 sheet of Designer Series Paper into 6 4×6 inch pieces. The Festive Birthday DSP coordinates with Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White cardstock so I pulled out a sheet of each to play with. Here’s how I put the cards together.
I trimmed a piece of precut 4 x 6 DSP to 4 x 5 1/4 and then just folded down one corner and adhered it to a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Happenings Stamp Set in Tempting Turquoise ink to match my card base. I punched the flower from a scrap piece of melon mambo using the pansy punch. I added a white perfect accent to the center and adhered it to my card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I used the 3/4 x 4 inch leftover piece of DSP inside the card. (I just adhered it to the bottom of a piece of Whisper White measuring 4 x 5 1/4. I forgot to take a photo. Sorry!)
I cut 2 pieces of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make 4 2×6 pieces to decorate the envelopes. I cut a 1/4 inch strip from each color of cardstock used for the card bases to put on the envelopes with the DSP.
My next card also uses a piece 4 x 6 DSP trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4. (This time I saved the 3/4 x 4 inch piece for another card.) I love the way the Stampin’ Up! DSP is double sided. Here I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut my butterfly from a piece of 2 1/4 x 5 Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Basics in Emerald Envy, cut the banner, and attached some Emerald Envy ribbon and a bow. I used a glue dot to adhere the butterfly and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
The first 2 cards and envelopes used 3 pieces of the 4 x 6 DSP. For my next 2 cards I will use 2 more pieces. I cut one piece of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make 2 3×4 inch pieces. (The other 4 x 6 piece is used for the envelopes.)
I adhered the 3 x 4 piece on to a Crushed Curry card base. I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words on Whisper White cardstock with Crushed Curry ink. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the sentiment and a scalloped circle from Emerald Envy cardstock. I added a piece of the Emerald Envy ribbon with a glue dot and attached the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off this quick & simple card.
My next card uses the 3/4 x 4 ” piece of DSP leftover from trimming the striped paper on the banner card. (It could be used on the inside of a card or layered on the front like I did here.)
I adhered the DSP to a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words using Melon Mambo ink. I wrapped some Melon Mambo thick Baker’s Twine and tied a bow before adhering it all to the card base using Fast Fuse.
I cut my last piece of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make the card below. I attached the DSP to a Pumpkin Pie card base. This card could easily be vertical or horizontal. This is one of those layouts I use again and again. It seems to look different every time just by changing the DSP and matching cardstock, ribbon, cut out shape, and/or orientation.
I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings using Pumpkin Pie ink. I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and also punched one out from a scrap of Peekaboo Peach to layer the sentiment. I attached the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Peekaboo Peach bow using a glue dot.
How cool is it that you can make 5 quick cards using just 1 piece of 12 x 12 DSP?! When you add the different sentiments and embellishments no one would ever know it was just a 4 x 6 piece of paper that started it all! They all look different. Do you have a favorite?
