Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper

I've shown you a few projects made with some of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog. But there is more you haven't seen. 

Check out this video to see all the DSP in the catalog.

Every now and then I go through my stamp sets and discover a set or two I have never used! I vaguely remember getting Oceanfront right before I started getting ready for Christmas Stamp Camp last August.

This card was so quick and easy to make.

I started from the top and worked my way down.

The sky layer is Balmly Blue, the water is Pool Party and the sand is Sahara Sand.

The big, watercolor-like stamps in this set are designed to stamp different shades of the same color, and when they meet, the colors blend so nicely.

I popped up the top layer onto another piece of Basic White, then adhered that to a Mint Macaron cardbase.

The plant and verse are stamped in Mossy Meadow, which really makes everything pop.

The "Thinking of You" verse is from Go to Greetings. This would also make a very nice sympathy card.

Quick, simple, done.

Framed Florets Valentine

 Hearts, hearts and more hearts! The oval framed in hearts is another great die in the Framed Florets dies.

Poppy Parade and Soft Succulent paper and blends - perfect!

Those little hearts are cut with one die, and the oval is cut with another. If you're clever, you can keep the hearts and use them for something else, like a shaker card.

I embossed the Poppy Parade layer with the Greenery die to add some more movement.

There many pieces in this die set that add extra interest to the flowers.

I wish I could take total credit for this card, but I cased it from Pinterest (although I did change a few things to make it my own).

Framed Florets Bundle

Stampin' Up! released this bundle before the Jan-April mini catalog came out, like a little teaser. I liked it then, but I love it now!

The dies in this set make so many different "frames". This one will cut the fancy oval frame, as well as the inside oval at the same time.

For this card I combined the Petal Pink polka dot paper from the Regency Park 6"x6" DSP pack with Night of Navy and Basic White. Who knew they worked so well together!

The flowers are fun to color. I used light and dark Balmy Blue for the larger flowers and light and dark Petal Pink for the smaller flowers. The leaves are Mint Macaron.

The Night of Navy ink for the verse really pulls everything together.
