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.

Creating Random Background Using Textured Timber Online Exclusive Stamps

Today we're Creating Random Background Using Textured Timber Online Exclusive Stamps. Last Thursday we created another card with the 'timber' background...if you missed it check it out here Click here to see Thursday's creation.

Here's today's feature

Zinnia

& closer...

Zinnia cu

Today's design uses simple random stamping to form a 'textured' appearance that makes that white space work for us by forming an interesting backdrop.  In our card we used Parakeet Party ink because it was lighter than our base card in Granny Apple Green.  By lightening the ink it doesn't compete with the base color and so doesn't drag our eyes away from the focal point.

Speaking of focal points---we're using the Simple Zinnia stamp set (one of the Online Exclusives just released--you can find a summary of them here...Summary of Online Exclusive Products.

These perky flowers are colored with Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sorbet--just singing with springtime freshness!

We've embellished the background with the new Shiny Sequins that add just a touch of colorful shine to give our overall a bit of pep!

The gold zigzag peeking out of the left side is a gold layer die cut along the edge with the Basic Borders dies--this touch raises our awesome level up a few notches!

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

Stop by Thursday to see what we are up to with the Textured Timber set!

Here's today's card...

Magnolia

& a bit closer...

Magnolia cuDo you ever need a designer paper background & can't find exactly what you need in your stash? This card demonstrates creating your own designer paper--& in precisely the color you need.

We've used the "board" design times 3 for the timber paper on which we've built the focal point of the card. The "board" is stamped in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla cardstock--giving just enough texture to make this a stunning card.

The medallion die cut is from the Thoughtful Expressions set & the saucey embossing used the 'crosshatch' folder (3D Basic folder -  Online Excusive product). The gold foil still catches the light but doesn't our lovely flower.

The flower bud & leaves is from the Magnolia Mood set (Online Exclusive)--dainty & just the perfect size for this card. The overlay label is also from the Thoughtful Expressions die.

Of course, you can always substitute the greeting on cards for just your perfect occasion. This verse is from the Bold Bouquet set.

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

Here is today's design

Berry

& a bit closer

Berry cuWe're using that awesome greeting again--what a wonderful wish to send! 

Beside the greeting are 2 die cuts from Soft Shimmer (Bubble Bath)...these are created with mirror image dies--this is always a wonderful plus because you can place them curving in either direction...you can even use these on the circle curving either way--a fun way to spice up the the wreath.

We added a bit of shine to the front banner by using edges in holograph paper--that really fun specialty paper that catches the light in many colors.

The back wreath is actually cut into 2 pieces and raised at the top and lowered at the bottom to provide that beauty of a berry wreath that was big enough to adjust adequately to back the banner.

Then so we don't skimp on sparkle we added 3 small clear/silver Sparkle Gems around the  greeting and slightly above the wreath.

Simple but very beautiful.

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

Here's today's card...

Navy

and a bit closer

Navy cuWe're focusing on the tree dies & stamps in this card--we first stamped the treeline as our background over which we layerd the die cut white trees...these dies lend themselves to lots of creativity.

Our focal circle was created with one of the "ring" dies--if you use both of them together you can create a tree-like ring circle--but we just used the inner one to create what appears to be a circle cut in the front of the card but in reality is just a circle adhered to the card front.

The moon & stars stamp is our night time focus and we accented the stars with more sparkling rhinestones for added detail.

The designer paper is from the Countryside Inn collection with the little white flowers actually adding to the 'stars in the sky' look that we're achieving here.

This Encircled in Nature Bundle is only one of many new products you'll want to check out and add to your collection.

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

Check out all that gold foil embedded in this paper...it just creates such a rich design...

Screenshot 2024-02-09 103148

Here's today's creation...

2and a slightly closer look...

2 cu

The Flirty Flamingo Swirl paper in this series is just perfect as the "background"  focal point. This fun background is created by first die cutting the Designer paper with the 3" stitched circle die..then cutting that circle into 4 equal 3/4" strips. 

Then creating that spotlight by reassembling the circle leaving about 1/8" between the strips! Since we want that designer paper to be our "attention getter" we just added the leaf stem in gold foil, tied it all off with a gold cord bow, and then last (but never least) we adorned this beautiful combo with a trio of gold sequins.

You've probably also noticed the embossed white layer--what a stunning addition that Softly Sophisticated embossing folder made to our background. This fold is also part of the Softly Sophisticated Bundle that is FREE during Jan/Feb Sale-a-bration. This wonderful time of Sale-a-bration is nearing it's end...don't delay...nab all your freebies quickly!

Notice the stunning gold foil inlay on the white sides of the DSP...such a lovely complement to the red, flirty and white of the reverse sides. Today's creation uses the Flirty Flamingo swirl DSP...here's today's card...

1-3This is one of those times when I really wish I could capture the gold shine in the photo...here's a closer peek...

1 cu

To provide a charming frame for our focal point we used a base card of Flirty and subsequent layers of white and Sweet Sorbet...then we used the Very Best Trio punch on all the corners---what card would not be lovely with that kind of detail!

Because the paper design is so dramatic we didn't want to take away from focusing on it and so we used 2 berry sprays (Magnificently Made)--one in gold foil and one in Flirty Flamingo.

We used a Gold/Vanilla bow behind which to tuck the 'Hello There' sentiment and we used gold embossing to coordinate with the gold foil.

For a touch of sparkle we added 3 small gold sparkle gems to the side--just enough but not too much!

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

Creating Another Beauty with Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper Sale-a-bration Item

Today we're Creating Another Beauty with Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper Sale-a-bration Item. Last Thursday we created our first card with the DSP. If you missed it you can check it out here Click here to see Thursday's card.

This DSP (free with a $50 purchase) is absolutely stunning...so many different designs that scream spring in lovely subtle colors that almost make you hear those birds twittering amongh the branches and flowers.

Here's a peek at the DSP which, as I mentioned Thursday, the photo just doesn't capture all the  sweetness & charm of the painted designs. And those backsides coordinate so wonderfully that it makes pairing them a breeze both on the same sheet and among the 6 sheets of this paper.

Screenshot 2024-02-02 111914

Here's today's creation...

Celebrate& a bit closer

Celebrate cuWe used the Petal Park punch for those cute little white flowers that contrast nicely with the back side of this sheet--the Freesia color is in graduated shades that make it wonderful as a background which is not just a single color. The  flower centers are those wonderful flat-backed pearls...the flat back makes them perfect for embellishments since they are flat and don't add heighth to the card.

That glimmery 'Celebrate' is die cut with the Wanted to Say Dies from Soft Shimmer paper using the Berry Burst sheet.

The background of Bubble Bath cardstock is embossed with the Cane Weave afolder that coordinates well with the natural theme of the card.

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

Today we're Creating with Sale-a-bration Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper. This DSP is one of the freebies you can earn during Jan-Feb when you place a $50 order.  It's such a gorgeous paper and has beautiful backsides that rival the focal sides for usefulness.

Here are the papers... Screenshot 2024-02-02 111914I must say the photo does not do the papers justice as we often experience with photos of the cards we make.

Here's today's card  featuring this paper

Thinking& a closer look

Thinking cu

This card uses the same page of the designer paper--front side uses the birds on branches while flipping to the other side we get the stunning "sky" paper that is so useful with many different stamp & die sets.

When using designer paper it's quite easy to select the coordinating cardstock colors--simply look on the back of the packing cardboard and the colors listed there are the ones used in the paper design. You can select one of these that best suits your design and know you will have a great color combo.

Note the pretty "pink" foil gems...these are the Iridescent Foil Gems that we "colored" with Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends.  It's so convenient to have any color gems you need with your color schemes since we can use our alcohol markers to match or contrast our colors.

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

Here's the card...

Sloth

& a bit closer...

Sloth cu

The background paper is just perfect for the outdoor jungly look--its the 6X6 Regals Designer Series Paper. Splitting this up into 3 sections---the break up keeps the continuity going yet give the break that the eyes need.

The sloth is swinging cutely from the vines while the aligator checks him out over his shoulder with that cute little grin. Both animals are stamped on white cardstock. Then Tracie outlined the animals & the accents with the darker of the Blends (Crumb Cake & Granny Apple Green), then went back over the entire animal with the lighter color of the Blends. The labels are die cut using the Adoring Hearts dies--layering two of them to give some nice depth.
