Quick and easy card – use up your DSP stash


So, us demos have all the excitement of a new catalogue to drool over and trust me, its great, but for now don’t overlook the existing Spring/Summer catalogue.  Lots of things are retiring, some are carrying over and if you love something you should be checking into it now – anything that’s on the retiring list is only available while things last and they are flying off the shelves.  The other thing to mention is that all bundles also retire, even if the individual elements are carrying over, so if you want to save 10%, again, you’ll need to move fast.

Today’s card is a quick and easy card, designed to help you use up your DSP stash – admit it, you have a pile of loved and unused DSP you like to look at but can’t bring yourself to cut or use.  Well, you need to!  You need room for the gorgeous new paper coming in the new catalogue!  So be brave and arm yourself with your trimmer or scissors and make some lovely cards.  And as we were reminded at last week’s Stampin’ Up! OnStage event, make a card, send a card.

Fruit Stand DSP, quick and easy, Dragonfly Dreams

My base is thick Whisper White, half a sheet of A4 (297 x 105mm) and scored at 148.5mm.  If you’re making more than one card it’s faster to score the full sheet of A4 and then cut into two bases.  Because I was making more than one card, I cut the DSP into the same size as the card once folded, so 148.5 x 105mm and then cut it in half on the diagonal.  Next I glued the DSP onto the base with tom bow (liquid glue) and then stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams (carrying over, I’m very pleased to say) in Watermelon Wonder.  Quick and simple!
