Stampin’ Up!’s Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP) is the most beautiful DSP I have seen SU release. One side has muted tones and the other brighter watercolor images. Often some DSP can be difficult to use as the patterns are large and can quickly overtake a project. That is not true with this DSP as every image can be the focal point or compliment the focal point of your project.
My projects today are CASE’d from the very talented Stampin’ Up! Artisan Jennifer Frost. You can see her cards here. When I saw these cards I knew wanted to give them a try.
On my card I I used Soft SeaFoam as the circle and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits cut out of Vellum. Jennifer likes to tear paper (which I have not done since my early scrapbooking days) and I enjoyed adding that element myself. The quality of SU card stock makes tearing the paper easy and results in a nice textured element to the design.
This version is almost an exact CASE from Jennifer. The card is so feminine and soft.
In both projects the DSP is both the focal point and the backdrop to the project depending on how you look at it. I think the effect is beautiful.
If you have not yet purchased this DSP I encourage you to do so. And now is the time with SU’s current promotion – Buy 3 DSP’s and get 1 free for the month of July.
Thanks for stopping by.
