Card for Cat Lovers

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card for cat lovers made using the Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP). This DSP is part of the wonderful Playful Pets Suite but you can create fabulous projects just from the DSP and some existing products!

This Suite is definitely on my wish list but at the moment I just have a sample of the DSP. I couldn’t wait to use it so I decided to combine the DSP with other products. I’ve started with a card for cat lovers because I can’t bring myself to cut into the dog paper just yet – it’s just so cute!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Basic Black cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next is a layer of the gorgeous DSP measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm.

I have cut out the cluster of hearts from Real Red cardstock using the die from the Stitched Be Mine Die Set. I kept a few of the hearts to one side to use as embellishments later on.

The cat is cut out of Basic Black cardstock using the Cat Punch.

‘Cherished Friend’ is a sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. This is adhered to the cat shape using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Three of the hearts are then used to embellish the card to provide a finishing touch.

What do you think to my card for cat lovers?

Are you a cat lover? Would you send this card to a cat-loving friend or to your cat?! I’m more of a dog person myself so I’ll soon be making a canine equivalent (if I can make myself cut into the cute DSP).

Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card. For this card I have used the technique of stamping onto Designer Series Paper (DSP) which I think is under-used!

Stamping on Designer Series Paper using Stampin' Up! In Good Taste Suite - card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Early Espresso cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next is a layer of the Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste DSP, measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I have stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink. I have then wrapped a length of Scalloped Lace Trim around the card front (adhering at the back using Tear & Tape) before adhering to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A piece of Early Espresso cardstock is cut out using the large label from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies. I have trimmed the die cut to give a straight edge and adhered it to the card front, under the ribbon, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using another of the labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Three of the In Good Taste Elements have been adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This piece if then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to the Stamping on Designer Series Paper technique?

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card. Do you use the stamping on Designer Series Paper technique? If not, I hope I have convinced you to try something new.

I think this card is really effective but is actually pretty simple to make! The DSP does most of the work for you and the addition of the Lace Trim and wooden elements make it stand out from the crowd!

Forever Greenery DSP Cards

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you these Forever Greenery DSP Cards. The 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is full of gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s difficult to choose a favourite and difficult to decide which to buy. If you don’t want to choose, check out my HCHC Paper Share 2020.

DSP is a great buy because the designs are so fabulous that they do most of the work for you if you want to make a quick and simple card but they also lend themselves to really stepped-up cards. Today I’m sharing two really quick and simple cards.

If you would prefer to watch me create the cards, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery DSP Cards by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make them…

The (standard A6) card bases are created from Pretty Peacock cardstock. In both cases, this is followed by a layer of the Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery DSP measuring 10 x 14.4 cm.

The sentiments are stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. The ‘sending healing hugs’ sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Stamp Set and the ‘from my heart to yours’ sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Stamp Set.

The sentiments are adhered to circles of Pretty Peacock cardstock cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch.

The Sprig Punch has been used to cut out pieces of cardstock in the main Suite Colours: Garden Green, Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam. Three sprigs were adhered to the back of each sentiment piece and the whole piece adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my Forever Greenery DSP Cards?

The great thing about DSP is that if you really love a Suite but your budget doesn’t stretch to the whole thing, you can get the same feel by purchasing the DSP and using sentiments from stamp sets you already have, combined with any extra embellishments that coordinate!

Dog Builder Punch Card

Hello and welcome! I admit I was disappointed when the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Stamp Set retired BUT the good news was that new got to keep the Dog Builder Punch! I come from a family of dog lovers and both my Mum and I volunteer at our local rescue centres. So, this year, Father’s Day just had to involve a Dog Builder Punch Card!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Crumb Cake cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. The main card front is a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm.

The Dog Builder Punch is used to cut apertures in the card front – one from the front and one from the back such that the dogs are facing one another.

The ‘Father’s Day’ sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. It is then cut out using the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies.

The ‘Happy’ sentiment is from the same stamp set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a small piece of the DSP. This is also cut out using the banner from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The two banners are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
