Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP! This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. We do not have any DSP that begins with J so I decided I would go with my choice. Today I am showcasing one I haven’t used in awhile….Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper. This is one of the DSP packs that is part of the Stampin’ Up! special this month.
If you follow my blog you know that my daughter is the one who urged me to start this blog because she was going away to college and thought I needed something to keep me busy so I wouldn’t miss her so much. As much as I enjoy blogging and interacting with so many of you, I still miss her! You could say, “I’ve Got Georgia On My Mind”. So I pulled out this peachy DSP and made this card!
This sentiment says it all and it will be headed to Georgia along with a few goodies. I CASEd this design from Sam Donald and made a whole set of thank you note cards for my daughter who needed some. I thought it would be fun for her to send some peachy thank you’s coming from Georgia. I absolutely love the Stampin’ Up! note cards. They are the perfect size for thank you notes and you get 20 note cards and envelopes in a pack for $6.00. The DSP is cut at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and layered on a 3 inch square of Pear Pizzazz. I cut the sentiment using the Layering Circles Framelits and added a few enamel shapes. I love to use DSP to make matching envelopes.
Here’s some ideas from the catalog using the fresh fruit and flower designs from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set.
A couple of weeks ago we flew to Georgia for Family Weekend and had such a wonderful time! It was great to see Ariane and I could tell that she is where she belongs. She’s happy and thriving in her new environment. 🙂 Here’s a few photos from our fun weekend!
Go Yellow Jackets!
I’m excited because I will be heading back to Georgia in less than 2 weeks for the Stampin’ Up! Convention and World Card Making event with fellow demonstrators. I’m going a little early and staying a little longer so I can visit with my daughter while I’m there. Isn’t that just Peachy!

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP! This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am focusing on the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper. You get 12 12×12 sheets: 2 each of 6 single-sided designs. These white-on-white designs really come to life when the paper is inked.
Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!
These two cards may well be the fastest cards I have ever made. I used the new Sponge Brayer from Stampin’ Up (found on page 172 in the annual catalog). To achieve these beautiful, soft results, all you do is roll the brayer in the ink a few times and roll in on your paper. You get the emboss resist without the fuss of having to emboss yourself! You just need to use a tissue to wipe away the excess ink from your DSP after you sponge it with the brayer. The white glossy patterns on the Irresistibly Floral paper resists the ink.
I chose to use the 2015 – 2017 In Colors for my cards. I sponged the first card with Watermelon Wonder. After I wiped it with a tissue, I adhered it to my Tip Top Taupe card base and made a banner using the Banners for You Stamp Set and Bunch of Banners Framelits. I attached the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Basic Pearl Jewels.
I just washed my sponge brayer with water to clean off the ink and squeezed it dry. For my next card I was going for the ombre effect using mint macaron ink on the diamond Specialty DSP. You can play around and get all different effects. I added organza ribbon and Basic Pearl Jewels and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings with Mint Macaron ink for a tone on tone look. Simple works!
Here are some great samples that are in the annual catalog (page 126) using the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP, Falling Flowers stamp set and the matching May Flowers Framelits.
Don’t forget about the Designer Series Paper Sale going on this month!

This is the card I am sharing this week at our monthly card club. My friend Margie named our group C3…Creative Card Club. She is so clever! I always look forward to getting together with these ladies and making cards. We have a lot of fun!
This card could be used for so many different occasions. I love this sentiment from Suite Sayings. I started with a mint macaron card base cut at 4 1/2 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2. I adhered a layer of crumb cake measuring 5 1/4 x 2. The Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4. I marked the center at 2 5/8″ then measured and cut in 1 1/2″ and folded it back to look like a collar. Our Designer Series Paper is double sided so you get to see the design on the back. How cool is that! I’m a visual person so I’ve included lots of photos for you.
I put a Stampin Dimensional under each fold and adhered the DSP to the card base.
I stamped the sentiment using Night of Navy ink. To decorate, I cut the flowers and stem using The Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, and Botanical Builder Framelits. The Precision Base Plate works great with detailed framelits and makes it so easy to have nice clean cuts. I used the Die Brush to easily remove the pieces from the dies. Having the right tools makes life simple!
I just love the flower die in this framelits set! You get 14 different dies in the set! Today’s card uses just 3 of the dies. I added a dimensional to the back of the flower to hold the leaf in place and pop it up on the card. I used a glue dot to attach the flower center then added a pearl. And we’re done!
