Stampin’ Up Product Share ~ Designer Series Paper and Ribbons

The new 2016 – 2017 Annual catalog has a wonderful selection of new  Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Ribbons- as soon as I saw them I just knew I wanted to get my hands on all of them!  Well,  the perfect opportunity to do so without breaking the bank is to take part in a product share.

So in July we did a DSP share and August a ribbon share, these have all now been delivered to their new homes, but I thought I would just share …. the shares!!!

Break out your DSP! ~ Diagonal Slash Cards

Earlier this year I made a promise to myself to use and not hoard my Designer Series Paper – I have a shared a number of cards over the last few months showing how I am making good on my promise.  As a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up products I am always looking for good ideas and I while I try not to copy exactly, I do try to put my own twist on them.  The cards I am sharing over the next couple of days are based on an idea from Patty Bennett, which is perfect for my on-going commitment to break out my DSP!

Shoe Box Swap ~ my card

Back in February I was invited to a shoe box swap – never done one before and was not at all sure what I had committed to…….. but once I had, I decided the focus of my card was to be Designer Series Paper!  I shared a bunch of cards from other ‘stamper’s in earlier posts.
