Quick and simple “Thinking of You”

Hello!

Welcome to the weekend!  I hope you are having a good one.  I’m planning some crafting this weekend – my pre-order arrived this week and I can’t wait to play with the new goodies I’ve got.  There will be more sneak peeks coming your way, but don’t forget that the new catalogue goes live on 1st June, so not too much longer to wait before you can buy for yourself.  Of course, if you can’t wait that long you could always sign up as a demo – I’d love to welcome you to my team and there’s no need for you to be local.

On to today’s card.  As you’ll know, I’m on a mission to use up DSP and send more cards.  Today’s card is a very simple, multipurpose card thanks to the sentiment.

Clean and simple, Fruitstand DSP, #loveitchopit, #makeacardsendacard

My base is thick Whisper White – I’m thrilled that there’s a thick Very Vanilla coming in the new catalogue, although I do use Whisper White more.  My sister, Liz is even more excited as she prefers Very Vanilla!  I cut a piece of the gorgeous Fruit Stand DSP to cover two thirds of the base and adhered with tom bow.  Next I stamped the sentiment from Sheltering Tree (which I’m very pleased to say is carrying over) in Daffodil Delight.  I tied the ribbon (Hello Honey – retired, but I thought it went perfectly) from around the other side of the card front.  This means that when you open the card you see the ribbon but I decided I really didn’t mind – I like it, in fact!

Using up my DSP mountain

Hello! You’ll know from some recent posts that I have a lot of DSP that I’ve hoarded.  In some places it might be described as a mountain.  Thanks to my upline Eimear for her challenge this week – to make 10 cards using DSP and to send them.  #loveitchopit, right?

Today’s card is one of quite a few that I’ve made and you know what?  They are quick and easy, like super quick and they are gorgeous!  How could they not be with the DSP taking centre stage?

This beautiful DSP is called Fruit stand and it’s not only still available but it’s a total steal at £8.  All DSP retires at the end of the annual catalogue so if you want it you need to grab it now.

My sentiment is from the You’re So Sweet stamp set, which coordinates with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, both of which have carried over to the new catalogue.  I haven’t used them nearly enough so I’m thrilled I get to use them both for another year!  The sentiment is cut out using one of the coordinating thinlits.  I stamped my sentiment in Old Olive and used that for my card base and flash below my sentiment.  And that’s it! Very quick and simple but really elegant and fun too.  I’ve really been making inroads into my DSP this week and I encourage you to do the same – there’s a lot of beautiful DSP in the new catalogue you are going to want to make room for!

That’s it for today.  Like it?  To place an order just click on the “Shop with Me” button to the right and don’t forget to use the host code – 2MY7DVKJ – if your order is less than £150 to receive an extra gift from me.  Over £150 don’t use it as you’ll get the rewards to spend and you’ll still get the gift from me.

Quick and easy card – use up your DSP stash

Hello!

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!
