Recently, my team leader hosted an online team event. She sent out a little packet to each of us with some supplies to make a few cards. Two of the cards use supplies from the current catalogs and the last card features paper from an early release product suite. Take a look at the cards and supplies below and be inspired to make your own cards.
Happy Easter Card
The first card here was stamped with the Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set. The flowers peeking out at the top were stamped and fussy cut. The other flowers and leaf pieces were punched out with the Daisy Punch, Medium Daisy Punch, and the Sprig Punch.
Flowers and Hugs Card
The next card was stamped with the Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set has some floral images that look similar to the floral designs in the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) used here. The little strip of Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon was cut in half and adhered to the back of the sentiment piece so that the Pretty Peacock color peeks out from the top and bottom. The Leaf Punch was used to add a piece poking out from under the DSP layer.
Ornate Garden Card
The final make and take card uses the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Our packets contained six strips as a little sample of each sheet in the new DSP pack. I cut my strips in half and placed them in a grid layout to show off all 12 patterns in the pack (since the papers are double sided). The sentiment is from the Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set and punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. I also added two Terracotta Tile sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment pack.
Our team events are always so much fun. And the make and takes are a great inspiration booster.
Recently rediscovered your blog and am loving your ideas. you mention yu received strips of DSP in a packet for swaps…can you tell me the actual size of the ornate garden strips showcasing all the papers on the terracotta background. I have pieces leftover when I use a one sheet wonder design and I think this layout would be perfect for using them up.
Hello! The strips I received were all 3/4″ x 3″. I cut each strip in half to make it 3/4″ x 1-1/2″.
