Colourful Beautifully Penned DSP

I LOVE the gorgeous Black and White Beautifully Penned DSP that Stampin’ Up! is offering as a FREE reward during Sale-a-bration – but it also lends itself beautifully to having a splash of colour added to it. Today’s card was inspired by a sketch challenge and a post that Stampin’ Up! put on their FB page.

All I did to create this fun look is cut the DSP into 4 1″ X 4″ strips. Then I added some ink with blending brushes and splattered some reinker over top. Flirty Flamingo with a splash of Poppy Parade, So Saffron with a splash of Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz with a splash of Bermuda Bay, words in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather with a splash of Highland Heather. Then i filled in spaces with the squirrel from Nuts About Squirrels and some Pastel Pearls.

A very quick card to make and great for most seasons. Shop now until Sept 30 and earn this DSP for free with a $60 CDN order. Then have fun adding some colour to your Beautifully Penned DSP.

Penguin Playmates Birthday Card

Today I created a fun birthday card using the new Penguin Place bundle and some FREE Penguin Playmates DSP. You can earn your own DSP by purchasing $60cdn during Sale-a-bration. See the full supplies list below, or shop here: http://bit.ly/shopwithleahdixon

The card uses just a few pieces:

Fresh Freesia cardbase: 8.5″ X 5.5, scored at 8.25″

Penguin Playmates DSP: 2 pieces 1″ X 5.5″

Basic White cardstock: 2.25″ X 5.5″ and a scrap for the balloon if you want to pop it up

You can watch the video below for all the details – but here are the two tips I shared today.

Use blends to colour the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots so they coordinate with the Penguin Playmates DSP.
The small balloon in the retired Balloon Punch coordinates with the balloon in the Penguin Place stamp set.

I am also really happy with how the bow turned out. I rarely have such great success tying a bow on screen! You have to check it out.
