70! - DSP Feature

Hello friends!

Today's blog post is an ode to DSP - Designer Series Paper.  I adore DSP, and I frequently buy it... but then I find it's too pretty to cut up, so I just end up hoarding it until it retires!  It's an awful habit, really, and one I'm trying to break... that DSP should shine!  

The Buffalo Check DSP - from Merry Little Christmas - was the starting point for this card.  It's masculine and crisp and reminds me of autumn in a cabin on the lake.  


Using that as my jumping off point, I added a few more sheets, some burlap, and a big ol' 70 for a gent's milestone birthday!

So many of these fabulous supplies were just released earlier this month.  You can find them in the brand new 2017 Holiday Catalogue, just released on September 1st!  Have you had a chance to check it out?

Deck The Halls - Add a Little Glitz

Hello friends - happy Saturday!  Whatever's on deck for you this weekend, I hope it's wonderful.

I'm bringing in a bit of holiday cheer with a bright and glitzy Christmas card!

But first, I've been dying to show you one of my most favourite stamp sets from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue... it's called "Add A Little Glitz," and it's fantastic!


Isn't it great?!  Just a little "extra" to bring some sparkle to the season!

And speaking of "extra," I paired it with bright Melon Mambo, shiny silver, and crisp black and white to make it really shine.


Supplies that gorgeous deserve their own photo!  I just love the crisp contrast of Melon Mambo with the black, white, and silver.

And the finished product?  Let's take a peek!


The black rhinestones, music paper, and shimmer ribbon really make this card over-the-top, and the pop of bright pink is unexpected.  It's non-traditional and so much fun!

You know those grandmas that insist they're too young and hip to be a grandma so they insist on being called "Glamma?"  THAT's who you send a card like this to!

So many of these fabulous supplies were just released earlier this month.  You can find them in the brand new 2017 Holiday Catalogue, just released on September 1st!  Have you had a chance to check it out?

Painted Harvest - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Welcome to beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada for another fabulous Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!  My name is Shannon, and I'm so pleased you're joining us today.  Whether you're coming from Rochelle's blog or starting with me - welcome!  Enjoy the show!  

Today's project focus is the Painted Harvest stamp set and coordinating Leaf Punch.  I've seen a TON of this stamp set on social media, and since everything has been focusing on that incredible sunflower, I wanted to focus on the other stuff!  


I couldn't resist ONE sunflower, at least... but that gorgeous Leaf Punch shouldn't be overlooked, and this stamp set has some stunning sentiments!

My first card lets the Leaf Punch take centre stage, using it for both a textured background and a focal point.


It's as easy as punch-and-glue to create that gorgeous texture, and though it's tone-on-tone, it packs a big impact!

Speaking of tone-on-tone... I had to bust out my favourite embossing paste for my second card!  With a little Crumb Cake reinker, the paste becomes a gorgeous texture for an otherwise plain background.


A flick of gold embossing paste and some texture with papers and washi makes this card a little extra-special, doesn't it?  

Whether your style is simple and chic or lots of layers, Painted Harvest Bundle has your back!  These gorgeous stamping supplies are all available 24/7 and direct to your door from my Online Canadian Stampin' Up store.  

Let's hop over to Sylwia to see what beautiful project she has created for us!
