Share it on a Sunday - Favourite Designer Series Paper From the Annual Catalogue

 Hi Everyone,

It's Share it on a Sunday and this week's theme was 'Favourite DSP from the Annual Catalogue'. Well, it's very hard for me to choose but the first one that I bought was 'Forever Greenery' and I still really like it, so I'm choosing that one.  Now there are too many pretty papers to choose just one so I have made two cards with panels of different patterns to get as many as possible on my cards.  I hope that you like them, don't forget to check out the links at the bottom of the post to see what Donna and Victoria have made this week too.


3 Panel Card

1 piece of just jade card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
3 pieces of pretty peacock card 1 3/4" x 3 7/8" and 1 piece approx 3 1/2" x 2"
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece approx 2 3/4" x 1 1/4"
3 strips of dsp 1 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Stitched rectangle dies
Pretty peacock ink

6 panel card

1 piece of pear pizzazz card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
6 pieces of garden green card 1 3/4" square and 1 piece approx 2" square
6 pieces of dsp 1 1/2" square
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece approx 1 1/2" square
Stitched square dies
Garden green ink

For both cards

Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Forever Fern stamp set
Comfort and Hope stamp set
Bone folder
Simply scored
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the largest piece of card stock on the long side at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp pieces to the relevant mat layers and then arrange them on the card front and adhere them in place making sure you have equal borders all around the outside of them.

Die cut the rectangle or the square sentiment layers.

Stamp the sentiment and then layer up on the card mat and adhere to the card front using dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment on the larger piece of whisper white for the inside of the card (I have used the Comfort and Hope stamp set for this) and adhere to the inside of the card.

There you go, card made and how quick was that.  Use the same technique with your favourite dsp and showcase it.
