Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop - February 2020

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you!
  Our theme this month is Sale-a-bration. So I chose to use our Golden Honey Specialty DSP!
This paper is soooo rich and beautiful - the designs are in black, white and metallic gold - one side features more busy designs with bees and honeycombs, etc. while the other is more reserved and elegant.  This gives you almost unlimited options!  Plus it coordinates beautifully with the Honey Bee bundle on page 30 of the Jan - June 2020 mini catalog.
So I combined the products to make this adorable "Sweet Friend" card -
And here is the inside - all ready for me to write a note!
I also used a very similar layout to create New Year's gifts for my Team and Club members.
But in this case - I turned them into an easel calendar display for a desk.
I love easel cards in general - but when you can combine them with a calendar and make them a practical gift - well, why not!
You can see on the above samples that I used several different designs of the DSP on my projects - and they all look wonderful!  I have definitely stocked up on this DSP - don't think I can get enough of it.  Hope you enjoyed it too.  Not click below to hop on to the next blog in the line-up. And if possible - leave me a comment I would love to know what you think of the BEES!  ~Maureen

This is a beautiful card and a great use of this beautiful DSP. It is so versatile, but I love how you coordinated it with the Bee set. It is simply stunning.

Thanks for hopping and thanks for the great inspiration and creativity you shared.

Gorgeous card Maureen. Love the way you have shown using same design but switching DSP and greetings. Suitable for any occasion! So sorry I messed up the link earlier.
