AWHT October Blog Hop - Designer Series Paper

From 1 - 31 October only! From selected DSPs, buy 3 DSPs and get 1 FREE! 

Tonight the Art with Heart Team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers.  

This month is the start of the new Stampin' Up year and we have a special promotion on our DSP - buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October, and there's no limit!  So take this opportunity and go to my shop to browse those beautiful papers and pay less! 

To demonstrate the DSPs I've chosen the one that is the latest holiday catalogue - the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper! 

I've used this DSP in my previous fun fold Christmas card, and am so impressed at how attracting it is.  Now I'm using it again to make two cards, one for Christmas and the other New Year.

#1 Season's Greeting

In this card I've used two sheets from the DSP, as well as the Cheers to the Year stamp set, plus the foil snowflakes to complete it. It is relatively easy (that's how I roll) and basically I just layer them all up. 

I try to ink the edge of the snow flakes with Bermuda Bay ink pad but it doesn't stay on very well.  I think most of the ink eventually got to my fingers! 

#2 Cheers to New Year

In this card I've also used two sheets of different design from the DSP, and the same stamp set and foil snowflakes.  I cut the other DSP in arrowed strips to place under the sentiment.  

Well I hope you enjoy my cards which are very easy to make with this DSP to impress the receiver.  Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented and lovely,  Catherine Proctor
