Use up that DSP, Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop #23


I'm always on the look out for ways to put designer series papers (dsp) to good use. The right pattern, in the right layout, can create the perfect base for deceptively quick to put together card.

This layout here for instance, would work with any of those bigger, bolder patterns in your stash.  It really showcases the beautiful imagery in the papers, while a few simple embellishments and a single embossed sentiment give the maker a well-deserved sense of creative accomplishment!

I'm sharing this project today for the Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop. It's our challenge this month to inspire you to pull out your stash of retired dsp and put them to good use. Click the 'next' link below to visit  Linda's blog for more ideas to do just that!

Today's hop project
Our monthly blog hops give us a chance to 'warm up' with the focus products before creating our exclusive class designs.  My hop project today was inspired by fellow Crafty Carrot tutor, the very talented, Cindy Schuster.  I just LOVE the unexpected colour combo and layout she created sometime ago *HERE*.  I couldn't resist creating my own variation with the Daisy Lane set to share with you all.  It's a great example of how you can draw inspiration from your favourite floral projects to create something new!

For more fun ideas using this set, click the 'next' button below to see what the amazing Krista Frattin has made.  Would you believe she's gone festive with this pretty blossom?!  Love her out-of-the-box take on this set and I'm sure you will too!

Painted Glass Sympathy Card


Today I'm sharing a sympathy card project featuring the Painted Glass stamp set. 

I've kept to neutral, muted colours and decorated simply with a flower made using the Botanical Tags die.  To achieve the 'inlaid' multi-tone effect on the flower, I cut the die in both black and white card. Then I stuck the white flower outline to the Sahara Sand label before inlaying the black fill pieces.

Be inspired with lots of ideas for this sketch layout over at this week's TGIF Challenge blog.
