The Designer Series Paper by Stampin UP! is so pretty, it’s easy to want to hoard it rather than cut it, but…it’s so much better to cut this beautiful paper, make a card and mail it than it is to keep it in a package on the shelf. So, that’s exactly what I did! #LoveItChopIt I’ve actually challenged myself to stop being a DSP Hoarder, so I’ve come up with a brilliant compromise: I buy 2 packages of DSP and I keep one on the shelf and cut and use the other one. Then I don’t feel bad about cutting it and using. I actually feel better because I love the cards I make more than the package sitting on a shelf. And I’m pretty sure the people who receive the cards I make like that too!
The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has such beautiful designs – florals, stripes and yes shoes, purses, lipstick and parfum bottles! Each sheet is as pretty as the next. When I saw the challenge from the Paper Players “Spring Flowers” I knew I had to break out my Best Dressed DSP and play along! I also just received the new “Label Me Lovely” punch and “Label Me Fancy” punch that were just yearning to be played with! So put them all together and this is what I made:
So, what do you think? Better than leaving this beautiful DSP in the package on a shelf, right? I’m glad that the Paper Players Challenge got me cutting my paper and making a pretty birthday card. Be sure to head over to the Paper Players page to see the Design Team cards that inspired me.
So simple and easy: I just layered Petal Pink and Melon Mambo cardstock underneath my DSP. A 1″ strip of Petal Pink cardstock served as a background for the 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon. A layer of punched shapes showcase a simple sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set.
