Perennial Essence & Follow Your Art DSP | Designer Series Paper Sale Project Inspiration Part 2

Designer Series Paper Sale Project Inspiration Part 2

Here is part 2 of the stunning project samples created by Stampin' Up!'s Designers that I am sharing with you. The Designer Series Papers used in these projects are included in the current Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale which is on until the end of September. Purchase any 3 selected packs of DSP and get a 4th one free.


You might find that you look as a pack of DSP differently and realise that perhaps you "do" need to get that design (I know there are a few that I was still on the fence about or had glanced over, but after seeing these projects I've changed my mind).

If you find you still aren't sold on the patterns/designs in a particular pack, then I hope at least you get inspired by the design or layout and try changing up the project using other papers you have or like.

Lets get inspired by checking out some projects using the Perennial Essence DSP and the Follow Your Art DSP.



Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper





This card uses a standard A2 imperial card base which has a card front size of 4.25" x 5.5". This design will also work with an standard A6 metric card base.

To create this card, start off cutting your DSP layer and adhering it to your Petal Pink cardstock base. The card uses 2 different DSP sheets/designs for the base layer. The join for these is hidden by the darker DSP strip that runs across the card. Stamp the flower and leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Petal Pink ink (for the flower) on to a piece of the lighter Petal Pink DSP and Mossy Meadow ink (for the leaves) on the green piece of DSP. Then fussy cut and adhere to your card base. Next tie a bow using Whisper White Bakers Twine and attach it over the flower. Lastly, stamp the sentiment (also from the Floral Essence stamp set) in Blackberry Bliss ink on to some Whisper White cardstock, punch it out using the Pretty Label Punch and adhere it to your card using Dimensionals. 






Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper




This project uses the colour reveal slider technique - where the image appears black and white and when you pull the tab you reveal the coloured image below. This card uses a standard A2 imperial card base which has a card front size of 4.25" x 5.5". This design will also work with an standard A6 metric card base.

To make this card, start by cutting a piece of DSP to cover the front of your card base.

Using the 3rd & 5th largest Stitched Rectangle dies, cut out a frame using DSP. You'll need a 6.5cm x 10cm piece of Window Sheet and a piece of Whisper White cardstock that is just smaller than the outer dimensions your frame and an extra 6.5cm x 10.5cm Whisper White cardstock piece for your tab.

You'll need to stamp the marker/pencil image in the middle of your Window Sheet piece using Stazon and again in the middle of your Whisper White piece (you can use either Memento or Stazon for this). They need to line up so if you have a Stamparatus you can use it to stamp in exactly the same spot. If you don't you could stamp the Whisper White image on a slightly larger piece and trim down to just smaller than your DSP frame piece to be able to get them to line up. Using your Blends, colour the images on the Whisper White piece only.

For the pull tab, stamp the patterned image in Smoky Slate ink on a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. Using the masking technique stamp the word "up" from the "lets stay up late and craft" stamp in Memento Black ink and then die cut the shape using the corresponding die from the Arts and Crafts dies. Adhere this to the top of the Whisper White piece you put aside for your tab.

Put together the slider by adhering the sides and bottom of the frame and base Whisper White piece (with your coloured image) using Snail or a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Make sure you leave the top open so you can insert your tabbed slider in.

Adhere your completed slider on to your card base using some Dimensionals.

To finish off, stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and White Heat Emboss. Cut this and a larger DSP layer using the Layering Circles Dies and adhere to your card.
