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?

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?
