Sailing Home Meets Country Club DSP ~ Guy Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I announced my product share for the 2020 Mini Catalog.  Today’s card uses the Country Club Designer Series Paper which is one of the papers in the share. The paper has golf themed images on one side but when you flip them over there are some more general plaid and fair isle patterns which are perfect for guy cards.

I love to make these multi layer cards it is a great way to use up scraps  as well as showcase the different designs in the package.

Multi-layered Cards ~ Petal Garden DSP

These are the last of the multilayered cards I made last month as thank you cards for my lovely customers – and wouldn’t you know this paper retired just last week! but I want to share them anyway as the technique will work for any of the new DSP packs in the 2018 – 2019 annual catalog.

The design is inspired by an idea from the UK demonstrator Pootles and it appealed to me very much – but instead of cutting up my DSP I used the scraps that were left over from previous projects. As a result I made about 2 dozen cards in total and although they followed the same formula every single one is different.

I set myself a couple of rules, the layering pieces of card must be the same color as the card base and each card needed to have 3 pieces of DSP.

Multi-layered Cards ~ Naturally Eclectic & Fresh Florals

This is the 3rd set of multi-layered cards I have shared – I just loved doing this technique and as I finished each set I was looking for more scraps of DSP to create more cards.  It is kind of like doing a One Sheet Wonder – but using pieces that were already cut and in my stash.

I was inspired by a  post from Pootles, a UK demonstrator, where she had taken some Designer Series Paper and cut it up to create a number of very pretty layered cards.  Instead of cutting up my DSP I used the scraps that were left over from previous projects. As a result I made about 2 dozen cards in total and although they followed the same formula every single one is different.

Multi-layered Cards ~ Eastern Palace & Delightful Daisy

Last week I shared some cards I had made from  scraps of Designer Series Paper, I rarely throw away my off-cuts and after I had seen some cards made by  Pootles, a UK demonstrator, I was so glad I had not.  She had taken some Designer Series Paper and cut it up to create a number of very pretty layered cards.  The idea appealed to me very much – but instead of cutting up my DSP I used the scraps that were left over from previous projects. As a result I made about 2 dozen cards in total and although they followed the same formula every single one is different.

Multi-layered Cards ~ Pick a Pattern DSP

Last week I was ‘letting my fingers do the walking’ (showing my age quoting the old Yellow Pages advert!) and came across a post from Pootles, a UK demonstrator.  She had taken some Designer Series Paper and cut it up to create a number of very pretty layered cards.  The idea appealed to me very much – but instead of cutting up my DSP I used the scraps that were left over from previous projects. As a result I made about 2 dozen cards in total and although they followed the same formula every single one is different.
