Paper Crafting Blog Hop - DSP Theme / Fall - October


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 this month - all spotlighting Fall and Designer Series Paper!


I told you last month how much I love Fall - the weather has  now turned really crisp - Fall with a hint of winter in the air at night.  But that is fine with me.  Stampin' Up! is having a sale and select group of the Designer Series papers are on sale.  So DSP is our focus along with Fall this month.  I chose to use one of the papers that is not on sale - but worth every penny - the Gilded Autumn DSP. 

I made a cute little tote using two pieces of 6x6" DSP along with a card to match - perfect to tuck in a little hostess gift for your Fall festivities.

Here is the inside of the card - I used the Love of Leaves stamp set and dies to create the leaves on this card - stamping first in Mango Melody and then sponging with Cajun Craze ink around the edges on the stamp; using a sponge or dauber, before actually putting the stamp to paper.  You get this lovely two-toned affect.

As I mentioned - I used the sheets of DSP to make this quick little tote - perfect for gift-giving; or even to fill with goodies and use as a place setting at a special Fall dinner.  I love the colors on this paper - as well as the hints of copper and gold.  You can watch the video on how I created this - HERE!


I hope you enjoyed my post and would love it if you'd leave me a comment. Now click on through to the rest of those hopping this month to see all of their wonderful creations! ~Maureen
