T is for This Christmas DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am showcasing This Christmas Designer Series Paper.


One of the things I love about this paper pack is you get 4 of each of the designs.  That’s great when you want to make multiple cards using one design.  You can get 6 4″x 6″ pieces from each 12 x 12 sheet…that’s 24 from each design.  Great for making Christmas cards!


It’s less than 2 months til Christmas! Time to start working on those Christmas card ideas and gift tags! Here are some ideas I posted previously showcasing this paper pack with cards, boxes, and tags. Click on the image to see the original post.

T is for Stampin’ Trimmer

Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series!  Yesterday I left you with a teaser for today. I’m so glad you stay tuned as I have a real treat for you!  Before we take a look at the Stampin’ Trimmer and tips for using it, I want to share with you my Favorite Background Stamp that I did not tell you yesterday…it’s Merry Medley!  This stamp has so many cool sentiments that I thought it could be more than just a background stamp. In fact, when I started playing with it yesterday, I decided that I would offer this stamp with my Stamp of the Month Kit.  You can preorder this  kit from me now through September 29th. The kit includes the Merry Medley stamp, Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers, and all the supplies…card bases, envelopes, ribbon, cardstock, Designer Series Paper, die cuts, embossed pieces (precut and ready to stamp and assemble) to make 5 cards and a 3D project (mini notebook)!

Merry Medley Stamp of the Month   October 2016

All the sentiments used on these projects came from just 1 stamp! Take a look.

I inked it up and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I  used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut it up to make all the different sentiments for my cards! Here’s a tip for inking up large stamps like this one: Turn the stamp over and tap the ink on top of the stamp. It is easier to get good coverage that way. I love how some of the sentiments are open for you to color. I find it very relaxing to color!

I couldn’t have cut these pieces so precise without my Stampin’ Trimmer. Here’s a short video from Stampin’ Up! highlighting it’s features.

Here’s a visual for you showing how I cut the sentiments apart step by step.


How cool is that! You get 12 different sentiments to use on cards, tags, etc. Here’s the 5 cards you’ll make from the kit.

Here are some alternate ideas you could do using different sentiments.

You will make just one of the mini notebooks. The tag is included as a Bonus; however, the  sentiment shown on the tag is used on one of the cards above.

The cost of the Merry Medley Stamp Kit is $40 (Merry Medley clear mount stamp and set of 2 Stampin’ Write Markers are included with the kit).  Note: If you prefer the wood mount Merry Medley stamp the cost is $45. Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) by September 29th  with “Merry Medley Kit” in the subject and I will send you a PayPal invoice.  Be sure to include your shipping address! I will order the stamp set and markers and precut everything for your kit. You will just need ink (Cherry Cobbler or Garden Green), adhesive and trimmer.  I will send you a file with all the directions when I ship your kit.  Just think, you can get a head start on some fun Christmas cards to use or give as a gift to someone else.  I make Christmas cards for my mom to send out and I like the way this has different sentiments you can send to each person.  And I love the little notebook!  I keep one in my purse all the time and I have made a bunch to give as gifts. So, do you have a favorite card from today?  Leave me a comment.  I always enjoy hearing from you!

Have a Terrific Day!

L is for Layering Framelits

Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series.  Today I am showcasing the Stampin’ Up! Layering Framelits.  Circles, Ovals, and Squares, Oh my! These shapes not only coordinate with many stamp sets in the catalog, they also work great for layering sentiments.

Holly Jolly Layers Stamp Set

I created these tags and 3 x 3 gift cards quickly and easily using the Circles, Ovals, and Squares Layering Framelits and Holly Jolly Layers Stamp Set from the Holiday catalog. They are sized to coordinated perfectly.
