New Horizons DSP Cards

This week I am featuring the absolutely stunning and versatile New Horizons 6X6 DSP. This paper really does steal the show – just add a sentiment and you have a gorgeous card in a jiffy!

I embossed a sentiment from the FREE SAB Stamp Set – Special Moments on a label created using the soon to be released Waves Dies. To add some interest to the cardstock on the card front I used blending brushes and a mask to add a bit of subtle colour on colour design.

I even used the mask to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope. To see how I created this card watch my video below.

I remember taking my kids to the Vancouver Aquarium when they were younger and spending hours watching the playful otters. We would eat our lunch there on nice days and laugh at their antics.

Sale-a-bration ends Feb 28th, 2022 so don’t wait.

I stamped the images with the FREE SAB stamp set – Awesome Otters and used the FREE SAB Simply Marbleous DSP as my background.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 382 – Inspiration Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is an fun Inspiration Challenge. Take a look at all the beautiful cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

Here is my take on it.

This card is a great little fun fold. Start with a regular 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock, but score it at 2″, 3-1/8″, 5 3/8”, and 6 1/2” instead of in half. This will allow you to fold it in this cool pop up manner.

Next I adhered the two 1 3/4” x 5 1/4” petal pink pieces of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP ( a FREE SAB item) to either side of the card front and the 2” x 5 1/4” Navy piece to the front.

To create the front card candy I die cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and a piece of Layering Vellum using the largest label in the Tasteful Labels dies. I adhered them together in opposite directions (Navy horizontal, Vellum vertical). The I stamped the cute van from the FREE Driving By stamp set using Memento Black Ink, coloured it with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the palm trees from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink and die cut them. Next, I stamped the thank you sentiment from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink on a 3/4″ X 2″ strip of Basic White cardstock. I used mini glue dots and Dimensionals to adhere all the bits to the card candy and then glued it to the center layer of the card front only. The light pink adhesive-backed Hexagons were the finishing touch.

All of the supplies I used are listed below. You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.
