Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Favourite DSP

Image may contain: text
Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.
Our theme this month is our favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP).  What a difficult choice - I love so many!!  Eventually I chose the Petal Passion DSP which is a sneak peek of an item in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue (which runs from 3 January to 31st May 2018).

I chose it because I love versatility and this is a hugely versatile collection of paper.

In order to illustrate some of its versatility, I've made several very similar cards all using one sheet of the paper but I've used different colouring techniques on each one.

All of the papers are suitable for many purposes: birthdays, weddings, engagements, sympathy, mother's day or just because!  Add colour or stick to an elegant black and white colour scheme.

Even small off-cuts can be put to good use!  I usually blend the watercolor pencils with a damp brush but for the sample above I simply left them as is.

For the brayered card, I used Powder Pink and Rich Razzleberry inks.

  8. Can you tell me the size of your DSP panels and what size your square accent panel is on the yellow thank you card? These are all awesome!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Tara!
      The DSP panels measure: 6.25" x 3"
      The square accent panel isn't quite square and measures: 3" x 2.75" for the DSP
      Hope that helps.

    2. Thank you so much! I now see that no it isn't quite square.I might make my bigger panels 6x3 so I can get more cards from one sheet of cardstock :-)

  9. Had to go look at all the other Blog Hop submissions and I have to say I like yours the best! I love the paper so that helps but I like how you showed the different ways to color on each card. It is amazing how great your shadowing looks with the water color pencils and you didn't even add water.
