Three Easy Cards with Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper

Hello! September seems to be flying by, which means that the current Sale-A-Bration promotion will be coming to an end on September 30th! You still have one week to earn free products with every $50 or $100 purchase. Today I have three cards for you that feature the Designer Series Papers you can earn with a $50 purchase. As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I receive Succeed Weekly in my email box each week and it is filled with business and creative inspiration. Several weeks ago they featured three cards made with a very simple layout, using the DSP, as shown here.

I decided to create my own cards, as shown here.

This layout makes quick and easy cards, with minimal stamping and no need for many embellishments, so it would be great for beginner stampers and crafters. It is also a great way to use up all those packages of DSP sitting on your shelf that you’ve been afraid to cut into! Cut Basic White Thick cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ for the card bases or select a cardstock color that coordinates with the DSP.

This card uses the Peaceful Prints DSP. Get a jump on making some Christmas cards now with this beautiful paper. The coordinating colors are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Real Red and Sahara Sand. I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set to stamp the tree in Garden Green ink and cut out the circle with one of the Layering Circles Dies. You can also use a circle punch. The Joy greeting from the Whimsical Trees stamp set was stamped in Real Red ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock. I used the black & white gingham ribbon in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog as an accent and adhered it with a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive.

This card uses the adorable Penguin Playmates DSP. This paper coordinates with the Penguin Place bundle in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, however, you don’t need the bundle to create great cards, as the paper speaks for itself! The coordinating colors are Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Fresh Freesia, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Soft Sea Foam. I fussy cut the penguin from one of the sheets of paper, punched a circle from a contrasting piece of DSP and adhered the penguin to it. I used one of the greetings from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, stamped it with Tuxedo Memento Black ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and flagged one of the ends.

This last card uses the Beautifully Penned DSP, which coordinates with the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, although this paper works beautifully with many other stamp sets. Who doesn’t love black and white paper – it goes with everything and you can also color it with markers, Stampin’ Blends or with ink pads and blending brushes. This set of papers includes 4 sheets each of 3 double-sided designs. I cut a circle from the paper and colored the flowers with Pale Papaya and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ blends. The greeting was stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock. I used the hello greeting from the Timeless Tulips stamp set. I cut a 1/4″ strip of Pale Papaya cardstock to use as an accent between the two pieces of DSP.
