New Stampin' Up Catalogue Launch: Dates and Details
Using Up Your Patterned Paper: More Card Ideas

Using Up Your Patterned Paper: Card Ideas

During May at my card classes we were celebrating the last month of this catalogue and having a bit of a 'let's use everything up' party.  I'm a big paper hoarder - I buy patterned paper then keep it for "something special."  I loved the hashtag my stamping friend Kylie Bertucci came up with #love it chop it.  So feeling inspired by that - we chop chop chopped at class this month. 


The design for these cards was inspired by this card by Wright Crafty.     All you need is your base card - at class we chose from either Shimmery White cardstock or the thick Whisper White cardstock.  Plus another piece - 5cm by 13cm worked for these designs.  Now just add your DSP - the patterned paper for class was cut to 9.5cm x (whatever 1cm less than the card height is, just under 14cm I think.)  We had a range of punches and dies to either cut something from the smaller piece of cardstock, or to add something to it.  Here are just a few variations.  My class ladies came up with lots of other ideas too.  It was such a fun class. 


Some washi tape and some stamping for this 'cuppa tea' card. 


I finally used some of these cute little honeycomb embellishments from the Occasions Catalogue.  Aren't they cute. 


The happy looks great cut from red foil.  I nearly always use a stapler to attach my cut out words.  So easy.  Some more foil behind the star punch to balance it out. 


Hmm - that butterfly green is clashing a bit with the ribbon green but hey - not worrying about that.  I love the DSP background on this one with the hearts.


I'll be back tomorrow to show you the other design we had for class - also featuring a snazzy way to use DSP inspired by one of my talented stamping friends. 

Don't forget tomorrow is the last day for this current catalogue, then Wednesday is day one for the brand new catalogue.  Exciting!

Happy stamping!

Cheers, Sue
