Dashing Along DSP-Not just for Christmas

Dashing Along Designer Series Paper contains a collection of patterns that have an eclectic feel and is perfect for layering, and while the newsprint design isn’t Christmas-themed, it was selected it for its versatility and popularity with customers. I hope you’ll love this Designer Series Paper as much as I do, and remember, it’s available for a limited time only!

I wanted to use the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper in a non-Christmas way and thought that the DOstamper STARS Thursday “showCASE” Challenge was the perfect opportunity.

This week I was inspired by beautiful die cut focal point.

I love that this color only used two colors and lots of patterns.

DSC#286: Healing Hugs Get Well Soon

Sending a Healing Hugs Get Well Soon card is easy with this beautiful photorealistic flower.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge for this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

I enjoy the “showCASE” challenge because it gives me an opportunity to take an image from the catalog and CaSE it (Copy and Share Everything).

It also gives me an opportunity to try new things…

  • color combination
  • layout or design
  • new stamp sets, tools or embellishments

I strongly encourage you to pull out your catalog and try it! I would love to see the creative projects you come up with!

This week I was inspired by the need for a get well card.

  • I love the vibrant colors used in this card as well as the sentiment.
  • Unfortunately (or fortunately-depending on how you look at it), I don’t have either of the stamp sets (Sorry for Everything and Bunch of Blossoms) used in the original so I opted to try out the new Healing Hugs stamp set.
  • I love the beautiful floral image featured in this set and I know you will too!

Healing Hugs Get Well Soon card featuring Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set, Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Color Combination Inspiration consisting of Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green & Soft Suede. For details, click through to my (Dawn Thomas) blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #healinghugs #getwellsooncard #LoveItLiveItShareIt

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Healing Hugs

  • Tools: Wink of Stella, Big Shot, Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber, Paper Snips
  • Adhesive: Stampin’ Dimensionals, SNAIL

It’s All in the Details:
  • The floral image is a new patent pending Distinktive stamp created by Stampin’ Up! employees.
  • These stamps are textured with varying densities of concentrated rubber resulting in ink opacities that produce a realistic complexity and intensity.
  • All you have to do is stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and the stamp does all the work for you, adding beautiful details.
  • Did you notice the Subtle embossed texture on the Whisper White layer? It is the new Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder & I am absolutely in love with it!

DSC#281: Petal Palette showCASE

When the Petal Palette stamp set was not on the “Retiring List” I was thrilled!

Why?

Because I purchased the entire suite of products and then didn’t have an opportunity to play with it!

So, I am thrilled to have more time to create with this beautiful stamp set and matching framelits.

Remember: the bundle will be retiring on May 31st…so order them as soon as possible.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by trying to recreate the look of the Designer Series Paper and creating a pink flower.

I love how the Basic Black layer turned out on this card.

And it was so simple to create, see directions are below.

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Petal Palette

Paper: Shimmery White, Basic Black

Ink: Whisper White Craft, Basic Black Archival or Stazon

Accessories: Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Wink of Stella, Petal Pairs TIEF, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot

It’s All in the Details:

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

Petal Palette Card
  1. On Shimmery White cardstock, stamp floral image with Basic Black Archival or Stazon ink, die cut with Petals & More Thinlits. Die cut Shimmery White cardstock circle with Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  2. Use Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss Basic Black cardstock (2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″).
  3. Stamp sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink onto Basic Black cardstock, set aside to dry. For background layer, gently drag edge of ink pad over embossed image on Basic Black cardstock to transfer a light layer of ink to the paper. TIP: use a very light hand because you can always add more ink but can’t take it away.  Set aside to dry, craft ink dries slower than regular ink and you don’t want to smudge it.
  4. Color flowers and leaves with Watercolor Pencils, using Blender Pen to soften harsh lines. Add a little shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. TIP: I used the Watercolor Pencils from the Lots of Happy Card Kit-Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive & Lemon LIme Twist. Flirty Flamingo & Lemon LIme Twist are exclusive to this kit.
  5. Adhere embossed layer onto folded Basic Black card base (2-1/2″ x 9″). Trim sentiment. Adhere circle, floral image and sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Shimmery White cardstock to inside of card for your special message.
  6. Address an envelope and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

I love this little pizza box project in this image because … it is a mini pizza box and I love pizza!

But seriously, it is the perfect little box for gift giving and the possibilities for decorating it are endless.

Although, I love the pizza box and I have them, I choose to go in a slightly different direction.

I opted to use the Tags & Trimmings Bundle to re-create the project in a pillow box form vs the original pizza box. I have to say, I like the end result. What do you think?

One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.

It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.

Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!

I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.
