What a wonderful prelude to Christmas – a Designer Series Paper sale from Stampin’ Up!
Even the delightful 6″x6″ DSP Stacks are on sale. These smaller stacks are fabulous. Particularly if you are like me and have a hard time cutting into a beautiful 12″x12″ sheet of DSP. These smaller squares now have me cutting far more frequently!
Although not ALL the DSP from Stampin’ Up! are part of this great deal – only those listed above – with the 13 above to choose from there’s more than enough to make your head spin deciding!
As this deal finishes next Tuesday please be sure to have your orders into me by the weekend. (I say the weekend so that should you only remember late Sunday night, you still have Monday to get in touch.🙃)
Then again, you can can simply hit the SHOP NOW link to the right of this post to simply place your order online at your own convenience!
Rearranging my “stash” is the equivalent of buying new stuff. Product that has inadvertently been pushed to the back is suddenly front and centre once again.
Such was the case with this Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. It might be sooo last season but I love that grunge-feel it has about it as you can see below.
The Swirly Scribbles Die-Cuts are currently a favourite of mine. In this instance I’ve covered the die-cut with Crystal Effect to give it some depth and character. Plus I finally used the SAB2017 Delicate Details Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s just like having new stuff!
This card was created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307. I’m so, so grateful for the wonderful “kick-starts” they give me each week. This is their current sketch.
Slowly but surely I’m getting my groove back. This is fortunate since we are now in October – it’s almost Christmas! Have you all the supplies you need for your Christmas creations yet?
You know you have it bad when the first thing you think of on waking is “how can I tweak that card-front base to make it work“. And the really hilarious thing is that even the tweak was tweaked!😂
Immediately adhering the base is not something I would usually do and am really not sure what made me do this. It made things that much more difficult in the end. Here is my take on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches 300.
There’s was finally an opportunity for me to take the Berry Basket Bigz L Die on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog out of its packaging over the week-end and what fun I had!
I tried it three ways, the first was as is with Gold Glimmer Paper (which is now filled with chocolates in readiness for valentine’s) and then for the next two I wanted to see how it went with the smaller DSP stacks.
The small green basket was my favorite in the end and only used 2 sheets of DSP stack by lining them up in the centre of the die, too easy!
There’s no denying it’s one of the more expenses dies being priced at $46.95 but the possibilities are endless and can be used for every occasion. It’s well worth the investment. Besides, you only need another $13.05 to have yourself a free Sale-a-Bration product. Now that’s GOT to be tempting, lol!
The Adventure Bound DSP Stack is something very different to what you normally see on offer from Stampin’ Up! Some of the designs are photo-like which really had my head-spinning.
One in particular, the picture of sun streaming down into the forest, really did my head in hence I challenged myself to use it. Here they are…
This next design is something I’ve wanted to try for the longest time but could never settle on a stamp to use. Well, this DSP certainly solved this problem.
My last card utilized the top of the sheet above. As you know I like to utilize every little piece of DSP and Cardstock I have with this piece being NO different. The wood-paneling is also from the Adventure Bound DSP.
I’m lovin’ this Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim. There’s no denying, when you first look at it you are reminded of the lace on your Grandma’s well-worn old knickers but it takes on a new life when teamed with all the beautiful colors from Stampin’ Up!
