I’ve got 7 greeting cards that show off your beautiful designer series papers! I often use the phrase, “Don’t Hoard Your DSP” (designer series paper, scrapbook paper…whatever you want to call it) and today I am really saying it!!!!  Yes, all the papers are beautiful, but use them to make cards and bring joy to others!  Keeping them un-used doesn’t bring joy to anyone!!!  Cut them, use them, then send the cards!!!


Today’s project actually uses a bunch of different pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from lot’s of different paper packs.  My goal is to really drive home to USE YOUR PAPER.  This is a great SIMPLE layout that works with any paper and any greeting!!!  This is a great way to make up a bunch of cards and have them on hand ready to send when you need them!

The above cards use these Designer Series Papers:

Don’t Hoard Your Designer Series Paper or Scrapbook Paper!

All of the papers that I used today are from Stampin’ Up! paper packs that are retiring the end of May.  They are currently “while supplies last,” but as of the time I wrote this post, they were still all available!


Each of the cards today is made with a 11″ x 4 1/4″ piece of THICK WHISPER WHITE.  Since I am not putting many layers on, the THICK works the best for a nice solid card.  The DSP is 4 1/4″ wide and the length varies–see video to determine the size to make it!

These cards use these papers:

Calligraphy Essentials Stamp Set

This is a stamp set that you probably missed in the Occasions Catalog.  it is on page 11 and appears to only be to use with the kit.  NO!!!  It’s a great greeting set for quick and easy cards like these because it is BIG sentiments

And here are the last 3 greeting cards.  As you can see–they are all made exactly the same way, just with different paper, ribbon and ink color!  Make sure to watch the video to see how I “colored in” the letters. Can you believe how easy it is to get 7 greeting cards that show off your beautiful designer series paper with just a few pieces of dsp?!

Which of the 7 greeting cards that I showed today was YOUR favorite designer series paper?
