Showcasing Designer Series Paper (DSP) – October Card Class

By | October 13, 2016

Hi there

I can now share with you the cards I taught for this months card classes 🙂

I decided these cards needed to use DSP as we have the ‘buy three get one FREE’ special this month and it would give the ladies some ideas for using DSP.  I don’t know about you but I often end up buying the lovely paper we sell and then not wanting to cut into it because it’s so nice!  Well that is changing.

First up we have a card I taught years ago.  I CASED it from Dawn Olchefske and made some changes to fit our metric measurements.  This time I added a ‘belly band’ to keep the card closed.  I made two samples so they could see it in two different paper designs.  I’ve used the beautiful Floral Boutique DSP and co-ordinating stamp set Floral Phrases.

The second card we made uses paper from the Holiday Catalogue – Candy Cane Lane.  Again I created two samples using different paper from the pack and swapping the coloured card stock around.  For this card you do need to have your scissors handy as you have to manually (I know – shock horror) cut the stamped images out.

There’s been some discussions on some of the craft groups I belong to as to which way the ‘cable’ of the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder should go.  If I was creating a ‘Cable Knit’ jumper I would probably do it vertically but I wasn’t wanting this to be a ‘jumper’ but an accent so went with it horizontally – so you can use it whatever way suits your project :).

My ladies had fun creating both cards.  So if you like these cards and need some DSP October is the month to purchase your paper.  Check out my post here for more details or give me a call.


Have a great day.
