Tuesday’s Tip: Getting The Most From Your Designer Series Paper

19 Jun

Today’s tip is nothing new, just something I, myself, tend to overlook.  It’s all about getting the most from your Designer Series Paper.  The new Patio Party paper is a perfect example of what you can do with DSP.

Patio Party DSP #126916

Always look for ways to use punches with paper to get a new look.  In this first example, I used the 1-3/4″ punch to cut out the large circles to make  a fun background.

Colors:  Primrose Petals, Baja Breeze
Stamp Set:  Layered Labels #127072
Accessories:  Apothecary Accents Framelits, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Pearl Basic Jewels

On this next example, I used a strip from the DSP to make an accent for the card.

Colors:  Night of Navy, Summer Starfruit, White
Stamp Sets:  Mixed Bunch, #125537, Itty Bitty Banners, #126257
Accessories:  Bitty Banners Framelits, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Blossom Punch, 3/4″ Punch

Finally, if you don’t have a particular stamp, look for a way to use a cute image from your DSP.  In this case, I used the cake.  All it took was a pair of scissors!

Colors:  Baja Breeze, White
Stamp Set:  Itty Bitty Banners, #126257
Accessories:  Bitty Banners Framelits, Designer Frames Folder (Oval), Extra-Large oval Punch

And there you have it.  Do you have some examples you’d like to share?  I’d love to hear about it if you do!
