Best Dressed DSP Frame Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my third, and final, DSP Frame Card. This card features the Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed DSP. If you missed the first two, you can find them here… 1 and 2.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Mint Macaron cardstock. This is followed with a layer of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The frame is created from Mint Macaron cardstock using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. This is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The chosen sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. A piece of the DSP is cut out using a larger Stitched Rectangle Die and these two pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I have offset the layering such that you can see more of the images on the DSP. The sentiment piece is adhered to the frame and the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, respectively.

The final touch is added with a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Sometimes, the DSP needs to be the star of the show and I think these frame cards are the perfect way to do it!

Best Dressed Card

A few days ago I shared with you a card made using the Stampin’ Up! Country Club Designer Series Paper (DSP) which I called a ‘frame’ card. Today I’d like to show you a variation on that theme. Whenever I create a card that I really like the layout of I use that card as a ‘sketch’ and create alternative versions using different products. It always amazes me how different they look! Have you made a card you really love recently? Why not have a go at switching it up using different products? I’d love to see the two cards – you can always share your projects with me on my Facebook page.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Lovely Lipstick cardstock and I have followed this with a slightly smaller layer of the Stampin’ Up! Best Dressed DSP. The ‘frame’ is created using the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Rectangle Dies and is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment (Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Stamp Set) is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using the Stampin’ Up! Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Another, larger, one of these dies is used to cut out a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock which is then embossed using the Stampin’ Up! Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. Between these two layers I have adhered lengths of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment piece is adhered to the card base (overlapping the frame slightly) using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by a few Pearl Basic Jewels. Look how different these cards look, despite having a very similar layout…
