I LOVE Designer Series Paper....or DSP for short.....AND I often use it. It's a great way to add patterns and interest without adding a lot of bulk or weight.
As you may have already guessed, the challenge this week was to come up with a project using DSP. Of course, I wanted to come up with something new. Well, I though and though, and searched and searched for some type of inspiration for a project that would be new and different. New was easier....but different? Hmmm! Nope...came up with just a plain old card!! BUT, I used the fabulous new DSP that comes in the Hostess Level 1, Patterns Pack. Just adore the colors included in the pad....there's even Kraft!, which is what I used today.
So, a card it is! The DSP featured on this creation is really a reversible pattern, as shown. And I've always been fond of Kraft and Real Red together....the DSP has a white background, which dictated that the card needed some Whisper White. This also showcases the Scallop Edge Punch again....can you stand it?!!....AND some of the Red Gingham Ribbon. Although I typically use SU products almost exclusively, there is a small amount of "contraband" on this card: the mini brad in the center of the flower is a camel color that closely matches the Kraft, and is made by a Heidi Grace; and the organza leaves are by Creative Impressions....both purchases on a recent trip to a scrapbook store I discovered not too long ago.
Stamps: Eastern Blooms
Inks: Real Red
CS: Kraft, Whisper White, Kraft DSP (Level 1 Hostess)
Misc: Scallop Edge Punch, Paper Piercer (Tool Kit), Red Gingham Ribbon, Bunches of Leaves by Creative Impressions, Carmel Mini Brad by Heidi Grace
