Make Your Own DSP

27 Jul

There are some great stamp sets that have stamps that just scream….”Use me for Backgrounds!”  Birthday Fiesta Is one of those! This is a great set and using that llama just makes me happy!

Today on SSInkspiration Blog, the designers have used stamps to create their own DSP (Designer Series Paper).  Here’s my contribution.   I used the twisted banner stamp to create my DSP.

Wedding Card with Sponge Brayer

22 Jul

I love the combination of Black and Silver and White.  I think it’s classy for weddings.  This card was actually pretty easy to do as I used the sponge brayer over top of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and magically the image appears….it’s wonderful!

To get the silver wording, I used versamark ink and silver embossing powder.  To keep the “shine” going I accented with the silver foil sheets and finally, tied off a bow with the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and added a few rhinestone jewels.  Now all I need is a wedding to pop up!

If you’re in the mood for some more “shiny” cards, check out what the other designers have created today on the SSINKspiration Blog.

The new sponge brayers are easy to use and inexpensive and can produce some great effects, especially when coupled with the Irresistably Yours Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Today’s card  couldn’t be any simpler to create.  All the details are available on the Free Tutorial Sheet below.  For other Quick and Easy Cards, hop on over the SSINKspiration Blog page and see what the other designers have created.

Something Beachy

Oh how I wish I were at the beach….but I guess this is going to have to do!  Today over on SSINKspirations the designers are featuring Beach/Fun Cards.  You’ll definitely want to check them out.  Since I don’t have a beach stamp set, I decided to create a beach, a little ocean and some scenery.  The only problem is it made me want to be at the real beach even more!

Wherever You Go

30 Jun

I really like the new set, Wherever You Go.  I love the look of the sun shining beyond the bridge.  In addition, I’m always looking for a set that can lean towards the masculine side, and I feel this one can.

For more sunshine in your day, check out what the other demonstrators have created on the SSINKspiration Blog.  Here’s my creation.   It’s very straight-forward stamping which is great when it comes to making a quick card!  The colors are navy and Sahara sand along with crushed curry.

Happy 4th Art

21 Jun

20160620_200134

Some of my favorite things to create are 12 X 12 frame-able seasonal displays.  This is my 4th of July creation.  I thought this was going to be challenging because there really are no 4th of July stamps in the current Stampin’ Up! catalog and I was designing this for my club members to recreate.  Once I got started, however, I had so much fun playing and using my stamps and framelits in ways they really weren’t meant to be used!

Curtain Fold Card

14 Jun

141648S

I just love this Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper!  Anything pink is good, but add black with it and it’s even better!  Now, if I can add a simple fold, in this case, the curtain or as some call it drapery fold and a sentiment stamp I’ve got a card that pops!  Today on the SSINKspiration  blog, the designers are featuring their favorite new DSP.  I’ve gotta admit, picking just one was tough!  (I also really love the Foral Boutique DSP.)  If you’re unfamiliar with how to do this fold, be sure to download the tutorial below and you can replicate this card in no time!
