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.

Multi~paneled using Birthday Blooms and Timeless Textures ~ Video

From time to time I am asked to make a card for a particular occasion – I love to do commissions!  I ask a few questions about the recipient….. color preferences, ornate, lots of bling, gender etc and then I start to put it all together.

This is a recent commission – I have done this style before and it starts with a piece of cardstock 12 x 12 and thru scoring and folding its finished size in 6 x 6.

I have included the link to the original video at the bottom of the post…. enjoy!
