Welcome to the September Pals Blog Hop. This month we are showing off our favorite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. We hope you enjoy our projects!
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Kelly DeTommaso at Kelly’s Creative Corner, #7 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
I will never be able to choose a favorite product because I truly love (and WANT) everything! So, I have a great project for you so that your holiday cards will be extraordinary as well as quick and easy! The stamp sets and coordinating framelits make card-making a snap! You will be able to make all of your cards and still have time for all of the cool gift-wrapping ideas in the new catalog. Who knows – you might just be able to get all of your holiday duties done early so that you can enjoy yourself this year!
I used the DSP Card Set technique to make these four cards. I think that they really turned out great and every card can look a little different from the next. You can embellish them as much or as little as you want. Below are the rest of cards in the set. The first one is the simplest and very fast to put together. You can easily make several cards with this design and can even be mailed without paying extra postage. The remaining cards have more layers and embellishments, which you could make for those very special people in your life!
DSP CARD SET TUTORIAL
I made a technique tutorial for the DSP Card Set for you today. If you haven’t heard of it, give it a go because It’s lots of fun! This can be used for any and all of your favorite DSP, so don’t limit this to just the holidays!
1. Choose four patterns of coordinating DSP. Mine were chosen from the new DSP stack, Trim the Tree.
2. Trim them to the size you want for your card (mine were cut to 3.5″x4.75″). Then cut them vertically just off center, and then again horizontally so that one side is longer than the other. No need to measure – just “eyeball” it!
3. Now the fun part – lay them down on the cardbase and once you are happy with them, start adhering. Don’t forget that the DSP has two sides!
4. Once you have completed that step, you can stamp and decorate to your heart’s content!
