Paper Crafting Blog Hop August 2022 - DSP Spotlight!


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for August 2022 - featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting - Stampin' Ups! amazing Designer Series Paper!


For my project I chose to use the beautiful Hues of Happiness DSP - such an absolutely delightful paper. So versatile and so bright and cheery.

#158822 Hues of Happiness DSP

I wanted to make a card that just shouted it's beauty - so I made this accordion fold card and the entire base is made out of the DSP -

You start with a base of DSP that is 5 1/2" x 12" and score along the long side at 1 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 3/4"; then fold back and forth to get the base that will fit into a medium envelope.

Next decorate as desired - so I die cut some pieces from the Painted Label Dies; fussy cut some flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP; and added sentiment from the Happiness Abounds set, with Flirty Flamingo ink.

Here is the front of the card opened wide - with a couple spots to add some personal thoughts -
And the back of the card - just as beautiful -

So there you go - it really is all about the Designer Series Paper!

I hope you got some inspiration from this card. Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love any comments!
