Feels Like Frost - Stamp 'N Hop
Hello and welcome to another Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing ideas for using Designer Series Paper. If you are starting here with me or following on from Annette in the Netherlands welcome - we have lots of projects to inspire you this month.
The photographic images on these papers are simply stunning - many of them in the pack are beautiful enough to frame on their own. The other side of the papers have hand drawn patterns with silver foil and can be useful for all kinds of projects not just Christmas.
I do tend to hoard DSP - do you? The paper I used for my project was a scrap left over from last year and I was so pleased that is still available this year.
Here is my project:
The colours I used:
You will need:
21 cm x 14.5 cm ww thick - scored at 10.5 cm
10 cm x 14 cm ww thick
10 cm x 2 cm ww thick
12.5 cm x 1.5 cm Night Of Navy
11.5 x 7.5 cm DSP
2 x 1 cm strips of DSP
Small scraps of Night of Navy card and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper for die cutting
I used the Winter Snow embossing folder to add texture to the 10 x 14 cm ww panel. I love to add texture to my projects and these snowflakes are so pretty.
I used a sentiment from a stamp set called Snowman Season stamping in the centre of the 10 cm x 2 cm piece of card with Night of Navy ink.
The die cutting:
I used scraps of card to die cut two snowflakes. (You can see the glitter sparkle better in this photo too).
Adhere the sentiment centrally on the Night of Navy border using dimensionals. Assemble the snowflakes using mini dimensionals and position on the card front. As a finishing touch I used some of my favourite blue gems.
As the theme of this hop is DSP I used a 1 cm strip of DSP along the bottom edge of the inside and across the front of the envelope.
The completed project:
This project looks much sparklier in real life and you can never have too much sparkle, especially at Christmas can you? This project used a small leftover piece of DSP and was quick and simple to put together - it would be very easy to create lots of these card very quickly too using different DSP's.
Next up is Jen Charles from the USA - I wonder which is her favourite DSP?
