It is all about paper paper paper this month with our May specials so what better theme for our blog hop than DSP. Anyone out there like me - I love patterned paper but have rather a tendency of hoarding it. This hop should provide loads of inspiration for getting it out of the stash and on to a project. 8 stops in today's hop.
Waving a hello if you've arrived from the gorgeous Alisha's blog and let's get rolling if you're kicking off from here.
We've been making rosettes this month at my classes - this one features the lovely Twitterpated DSP.
Products for this one: Island Indigo base card then Shimmery White cardstock for a touch of sparkle. Blushing Bride and En Francais background stamp (LOVE this stamp.) Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon. The swirl is from Elements Of Style stamped in Riding Hood Red. Rosette features Twitterpated DSP, the Blossom Bouquet Punch and an Antique Brad to finish.
Once we'd finished class I had a bunch of strips of DSP left over and a stray rosette I'd been demonstrating with, so revisited a card I made last week and put this quick one together.
DSP in this one is Twitterpated and also one piece from Sweet Shop that also had Island Indigo in it. You just can't go wrong with colour coordinated products really. Just mix and match.
SCORING: I've always loved score lines on cards but always seemed to manage to get them crooked with my bone folder and a ruler. I wasn't sure if I needed a Simply Scored as I don't make many boxes or 3D things, but boy is it getting a good work out! Love it for scoring random lines - just great for when you need a little texture or that elusive 'hmmm needs something.'
So that's it from me for this hop. Waving a bye - have a super weekend.
Now it is time to head along to the next stop along the line - the talented Kathryn Manglesdorf to see which of our lovely DSPs she's creating with. Click here for Kathryn's Stampin' World.
Class ladies - if you liked our rosettes, keep an eye out along the hop and you might spot one of those lovely wreaths of rosettes that we were talking about. You'll find gorgeous cards using a range of techniques plus you'll be inspired by a fabulous bunch of 3D projects - a train, a set of drawers, lots of wow. Happy hopping!!
Have a great time! Cheers, Sue
