How to Let the Magic of Your'e A Peach Designer Paper Design Your Next Card

Today we're again exploring How to Let the Magic of You're a Peach Designer Paper Design Your Next Card! Tuesday we worked the magic of Sweet Symmetry DSP--if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/07/how-to-let-the-magic-of-in-symmetry-designer-paper-design-your-next-card.html

Today's DSP is You're a Peach

155686

I selected near solid design (has dots), one medium print, and one coordinating small print---they all share Flirty Falmingo with a sprinkling of Old Olive.  This points to a card base of Flirty (with layer of white) and Old Olive with Flirty Flamingo inks for the stamping. See how easy card design is when you start with dsp? 

Here's today's creation:

Sweet as a Peach

This design can be utilized for any number of designer papers that have primarily small designs---as with our Tuesday design the larger patterns won't work as well with this because of the small rectangles being used.

Arch

with a bit closer look...

Arch cu

For today's creation we began with a layer of the lagoon designer paper...we bordered it with a slim layer of Pretty Peacock to define the edges a bit. Then we layered this unit on a Thick Basic White card base.

We nabbed the greenery arch die cut and positioned it to the left of center. Then layered on the 'happy birthday' die cut from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. This awesome greeting is from the Wanted to Say Dies.

Then to accessorize we added a Pretty Peacock & Gold Bow to the center of the greenery arch and 3 large Pretty Peacock sequins (Sequin Trio) which gave a bit of shine to the right side of the card.

Using this designer paper and die cuts takes all the guesswork out of designing and leaves you plenty of time to design some more!!

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Simple Beautiful Get Well Card Design with Frames & Florals Designer Series Paper

This set of paper and die cuts provide an unlimited number of beautiful cards or memory pages. The most wonderful advantage of using this set is that the designs & colors are totally c0ordinated...no guessing does this go with that...it does!

The pack comes with 3 sheets of designer paper and 3 sheets of die cuts.

Here's a snapshot of the package.....

Screenshot 2024-07-05 142444Here's our card for today...

Feel better

Here's a bit closer look...

Feel better cu

 

We made the first selection was the 3 3/4 X 5 die cut floral layer--then we just added a slight border of Petal pink cardstock to give it a finished edge.  This unit was then layered on the card base of Lost Lagoon cardstock.  That was pretty enough to stop right there.

Then we worked on the focal point. The Feel Better Soon was die cut using the Wanted to Say die set (it's one of my favorites). This was layered on a die cut of Lost Lagoon using the Nested Essential Layers dies.

It was all topped off with one of the small die cut flowers that coordinated with the flowers in the designer paper die cut and 3 small Petal Pink foil dots (Petal Pink & Pretty Peacock Foiled Gems). These gems were just made for this designer paper pack. We popped up this unit with dimensionals in the middle of our card.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Sweet & Simple DIY Card with Sentimental Park Stamps & Dies with Country Lace Paper

We are creating a Sweet & Simple DIY Card with Sentimental Park Stamp & Dies with Country Lace Paper. On Tuesday we created a Thank You card with this complement of stamps, dies and paper. If you missed it check it out here Clcik here to See Tuesday's Card.

This is the Sentimental Stamp set & dies

Screenshot 2024-06-27 161224This is our card today...

Horizontal

and a closer peek...

Horizontal cuWe chose to use one of the eyelet designs in Misty Moonlight for this card (this was one that we also used on Tuesday's card. We cut a rectangle and then cut it diagonally into 2 identical pieces.

These were layered over Misty Moonlight cardstock on a white card base. By splitting the DSP we can use a smaller piece that if we covered the entire card front with it. Additionally, this provides tons of interest by leaving a lovely swath of Misty diagonally across the card center.

The white die cut is to "die for" since it's all one wonderful piece --the label area is large enough to contain many of the greetings in this set and is bounded by tons of tiny white flowers to give you an entire complementary garden. We simply added  small navy flowers to spice it up a bit along with the rhinestone jewels which gave us tremendous sparkle.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Quick & Sweet Card Using Sentimental Park Stamps & Dies

Today we're creating a Quick & Sweet Card Using Sentimental Park Stamps & Dies.  We've had this little beauty of a stamp set for a bit of time & sometimes it's fun to nab one of these and pair it with something new like our new Country Lace Designer Series Paper.

This is the Sentimental Park stamp set & dies

This is the Country Lace DSP

And here's today's card

Vertical

with a bit closer look

Vertical cuWhat a lovely pairing! The Country Lace DSP has several designs that coordinate well together--so we selected 2 in a Misty Moonlight & white configuration. Leaving a strip of white under layer showing between the 2 designs leaves us space to stamp our greeting and add a couple of jewels to spice up the middle of the card

Using a stem die cut from Shaded Spruce we selected Night of Navy as our flower hue---it's darker than the Misty and also contrasts well with the white center layer.  

We added tons of sparkle by using the large and medium Basic Jewel Rhinestones as the flower centers.

What a simple design but what an awesome combo--something old and something new!

Simply Simple Classic Male Card Using the Greatest Adventure Train Image

Today we're designing a Simply Simple Clasic Male Card Using the Greatest Adventure Train Image. Tuesday we used this same stamp set for another quite simple card...if you missed it check it out here click here for Tuesday's card.

The Greatest Adventure is an Online Eclusive stamp set which just means you won't see it in the catalogs but only when you go online to shop the online store. You can order this set using any way you normally place orders--through me your demonstrator or online yourself.

This is the set we are using...

Here's today's creation...

Balmy

And a bit closer look...

Balmy cu

When we have such a predominant image it is often best to keep the card design simple--that way we don't get too much going on and end up with clutter or overpower the design with the background.

We chose the Balmy Blue ink for today's card and kept the coordinating layer in Balmy and White. Just giving the focal point a couple of layers does the trick. The white background layer used the Dashing Designs embossing folder....which is perfect for this--it gives us a bit of texture but doesn't pull our attention away from the main design.

The rhinestone embellishments give a bit of sparkle & enhance the overall layout, but again, do not draw the eye away. Simply Simple.

Leaving the focal point without a greeting gives us a wonderful card that we can hold in our stash for just the right occasion...you can add your sentiment inside when your occasion arises.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Today we're using the stamp of the large ?maple tree---it's fun because we can use several of our coloring tools to color the foliage--we used the sponge dauber which gives us a soft varigated green for the leaves. You can use your blending brushes or your Blends to color in.

Our background is planks of Country Woods designer paper layered on the Smoky Slate card base. This makes the greenery pop quite nicely.

We've added a blue bird and used some of our new Adhesive-backed Transparent Dots in Garden Green--this is one of those colors of which we seem to have very few embellishments.

Green

And a bit closer look...

Green cu

We used the Thick Basic White cardstock for our card base because this is a bit sturdier than the regular Basic White we used for the top layer. We put that layer through the Painted Texture embossing folder...this gives us a pretty background without overpowering our main image.

The tree leaves are die cut from that Shy Shamrock Glimmer paper (2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Paper). What a gorgeous green for our leaves (imagine what that will look like in our Christmas cards this year--absolutely stunning)!

The Pool Party label is die cut with the 2 3/4 dotted rectangle from the Everyday Details dies.  Doesn't the inner outline of dots simply set off that eyecatching label? We added 2 of the gold birds from Birds & Dragonflies embellishments that are just the perfect size to accompany this tree.

The final embellishment is hte 3 small gold pearls (Blooming Pearls) that give a dash of interest to the birthday greeting.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Quick & Easy Sympathy Card Using Loveliest Tree Stamp Set

Today we're creating a Quick & Easy Sympathy Card Using Loveliest Tree Stamp Set. This is a new set in the Stampin'Up! Annual Catalog.  If you are an old timer with Stampin'Up! products you'll remember Lovely As a Tree stamp set that was with us for nearly 20 years--one that will be remembered for many years.  This tree set is  a larger image of one of the trees in that stamp set.

Here's the new set

Thumbnail_IMG_8064

This is today's card...

Misty

And a bit closer...

Misty cu
Since our focal point is this lovely large tree we want to keep the eyes trained on that image. We stamped this is Misty Moonlight on white cardstock then die cut the image.

This is popped up on a light Misty Moonlight background. This designer paper (Take to the Sky) could be viewed as tree rings from a cross-section of a tree trunk.  What a fun use for this design intended for the plane stamp set.  It gives you an interesting background without taking away from the main image.

We embellished with the Misty Moonlight gems in the Tinsel Gems 3-pack--just a perfect match!

Since this set is nuetral in gender it can be used for multiple occasions...birthday, thinking of you, sympathy....and on and on. A great card to have several in your stash ready to use when an appropriate occasion arises. We stamped the sympathy verse in Misty Moonlight ink giving us this beautiful monchromatic card.

Of course, you can use multiple colors and create a totally different 'look.' What fun.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
