Coffee And Cards - Using Your DSP


 Coffee And Cards - Using Your DSP 


Handmade card using the Incredible Like You Stamp set and the Share What You Love DSP. Coffee and Cards.

Do you have a stash of Designer Series Papers? (DSP). Do you use it for your cards and scrapbooking?, Do you cut it up and use it or do you love it so much, you stash it away until you have a "worthy" use for it?



So I brought a pack of the gorgeous Share What You Love DSP to Coffee and Cards this week to share the love of cutting up our DSP and getting it used to make some beautiful cards.

 O K here are a few reasons that might help liberate that pretty paper you've been saving.
 Paper trends change. It dates. So that paper you fell in love with a while ago - you may find you don't love it as much as you did at the time!  Also, that beautiful paper is only beautiful if you can see it. It's not so lovely stashed away in a drawer. Oh and thirdly, It is one of the least expensive parts of your stash. If you use it up, guess what - you can buy another pack. But if you don't use it and you see some more pretty paper you would like, you might think, oh no, I can't buy that, I haven't used what I already have. You still won't use your stash and you wont buy any more, just feel guilty about it. Who wants that! Right?!

The ladies chose which papers they wanted to use, and if I needed to cut into a 12 x 12 sheet for just one card front, guess what? We did!  It will all get used. One sheet can make 6 card fronts!

I took along the new Incredible Like You stamp set for the lovely sentiments and beautiful font, and some stitched squares of Whisper White cut out using the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies. 
The DSP panel was glued onto the Whisper White card base, we stamped our sentiment onto the die cut and adhered it to the front using Dimensionals. We added a little bow from matching Bakers twine with a glue dot for the finishing touch.

So pretty aren't they! I hope they have inspired you to use up your patterned papers.

 We have so much fun at Coffee and Cards. It's such a lovely group and today we were celebrating one of the ladies birthdays! They do lovely cakes here.

But we thought we would stay for lunch/brunch so we all chose either bacon, sausages, eggs or a combination in a sandwich.
