Use your Designer Series Paper to make fabulous cards!!!

I always get kind of sad at the end of May..... There are so many great products from our Annual and Occasions Catalogs that are retiring!!  So....... I try my best to "play" with as many of them as I can before they go!!

Here are a couple of great examples of Designer Series Paper that I'm really going to miss!!

This first card features a Pineapple Punch card base, a layer of Night of Navy card stock and the star of the show..... that gorgeous Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (DS).  As of this blog post, this DSP is still available, so order it will you still can!!

There is just something about this paper that I can't get enough of!!  And.... I love those "pops" of color provided by the Pineapple Punch accents (like that great Pineapple Punch 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon).

To finish off this simple card, we stamped "Thanks For That Thing You Did" in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White card stock.  This sentiment is from the All Things Thanks Stamp Set that we featured as our Product of the Week a few weeks ago.

We die-cut the sentiment using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then layered it on top of a 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" Night of Navy square and then a Pineapple Punch scallop square die-cut with the Layering Square Framelits.

Finally, we added a couple of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to our sentiment.  These fun, liitle dots are carrying over to our next Annual Catalog - yay!!

And..... here's another great example of a simple way to use your Designer Series Paper on a card....

For this card, we started with a Call Me Clover card base, then added two pieces of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper (DSP) to our card.  Again, as of this blog post, this DSP is still available to order (but it will retire on June 3).

We also added a strip of the Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon to the card and adhered it at the front of the card behind the sentiment.

This time, we stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Better Together Stamp Set in Call Me Clover ink. This stamp set is also retiring, so order it will you still can.  It has some very versatile sentiments - and.... I love that there is an "outside" sentiment, as well as an "inside" sentiment, for many of these greetings :).

We die-cut this oval, along with the Call Me Clover Scallop Oval behind it, using the Layering Oval Framelits.

And, again... for that final, finishing touch, we added a couple of Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to our sentiment.

So cute and simple!!

As you can see...... just by adding some DSP and a sentiment, you can make a  quick, simple cards, too!!
