In Big Shot/ Cards/ Designer Series Papers/ Stamp Sets


May 8, 2015

I had a great time last week with my daughter and a group of her friends creating some spring time cards, masculine and feminine.    My favorite was this group of cards made from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I pretty much copied the idea from my stampin’ friend Janet Holmes because it’s such a ‘no brainer’ as well as being a fabulous way to used such a beautiful field of flowers sheet of paper.

These cards are made from ONE sheet of Designer Series Paper, cut into 6ths!  The patterned pieces are cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and then layered onto coordinating card fronts.  When you look at the back of any pack of designer paper, you’ll find a listing of the colors used in the designs.  What an easy way to choose your papers and inks.  I used Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Blackberry Bliss card stocks for these card front bases.

A few of the gals, after making 5 of the flowered cards flipped the designer paper over and made their own design:

Here’s how our 9.30 a.m. gathering started:

 We get together monthly, just after the kids go to school, for crafting, chatting, laughing and snacking of some yummy no calorie treats.

I hope you enjoy your day.  I know I’m looking forward to some stamping and the arrival of my relatively small box of pre-ordered items from Stampin’ Up!’s new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.  I still have more to share from the current catalog, both retiring items and others that are being carried over (woohoo) into the next catalog.
