Making Paper More Than Just For Backgrounds

So I’ve been busy preparing for our new dog arrival, we’ve adopted another dog from Romania and he’s leaving today and arriving on Friday. I hope he fits in well with our other three rescue dogs.

I have been playing though, my craft studio is my happy place. Today I decided to see how versatile the designer series paper is and I hope you find my examples helpful. The above card was made by cutting some of the beautiful flowers on the paper and adding them to a heart cut from the same paper. I stamp the sentiments onto Fresh Fig cardstock and emboss them with white embossing powder.

I cut out a rectangle from paper for the above example and coloured it in. I then added it on dimensionals to the uncoloured piece and stamped the sentiment, black embossed it and fussy cut it out to stick on top.

This final card has a bit of vellum to soften the background paper and then I fussy cut the butterflies from the designer series paper. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out and attached it to the card using dimensionals and to add a bit of bling I added some diamontes.

I am eagerly awaiting my delivery of pre ordered stash from the new catalogue and I can’t wait to play with all my goodies. I hope, in the meantime, that you find the above cards a useful tool to help you make more use of your designer series paper. Until next time

Happy Crafting
