Thursday Treasures: Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration "Springtime Foil DSP"

 "Springtime Foil Happy Mother's Day"

Images©Stampin' Up!
I must admit Stampin' Up's Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper is my new favorite. You can use it as is or you can add a little color. I created this Mother's Day card using the designer series paper and the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit stamp set. I thoroughly enjoyed the coloring in this project.  The color inspiration was from our team challenge: 
Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.

Thursday Treasure: Stampin' Up "Perennial Birthday"


Stampin' Up! "Perennial Happy Birthday"

Stampin' Up, has beautiful designer series paper (DSP), but sometimes you just prefer to create your own custom DSP. Our team's weekly color challenge was Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry and Black. So I decided to create my own DSP using the Perennial stamp set and those colors.  I really love the finished product. I created my background using the Perennial Birthday Stamp set. This stamp set goes with the Perennial Birthday kit in the Occasions catalog. But the floral designs are so pretty I knew it would make a great background.
