PAPER THAT INSPIRES...

I'm continuing this week with more examples of Designer Series Papers that have inspired me with card-making ideas. This paper made me see dots (and circles)...

I punched 3 extra dots (above) to slip inside the envelope as a bonus surprise for the recipient.  And the large circles (below) continue the design motif...

A FAVORITE THING...

One of my favorite things offered in the Stampin' Up! product line are the DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS. For one, they all have matching card stock colors and I LOVE that!!!

Artistic DSP

Another thing is that when I look at the patterns...

I ACTUALLY SEE CARD IDEAS!!!

MANY, MANY PURSES...

My daughter, Krystal Kennard, is a THIRTY-ONE CONSULTANT, and is the reason I've added a bunch of purses, totes, caddies, wallets and bags to my personal collection! But here's one I made myself with paper and a little imagination...

5

The handle makes it unique from some of the other paper purses you may have seen...

5-2

And the handle twirls to the side so the purse may fit into an envelope...

5-3

The inside greeting is on White Vellum Card Stock...

5-4

The Vellum is adhered only along the top edge, like a Hallmark card...

5-5

This greeting from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set is FREE with a $50 order...

A LITTLE BIT MASCULINE...

 

The combination of colors, papers, ribbon and style of this card turned out a little on the masculine side...

3

The Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper has a pattern that repeats every 5/8", so I cut all the strips that same width and wove in and out with Soft Suede Card Stock strips to make the checkered background...

3-2

The Natural Trim Ribbon is truly a natural for a masculine card.
