Hello everyone: This week over at the "Less is More" challenge blog the DT is asking us to use DSP in our CAS cards.....well, those of you who know me for a while know that DSP and I sometimes don't get along to well, don't get me wrong, I love the designs and colors of it, I just don't know how to mix patterns or how to match it with regular card stock, or where to place it on a card, I have some mental block that stops me on my tracks every time I attempt to work with it. I've seen other crafters do wonders with it, I just can't. Sometimes I manage to put a small panel on some cards but, for the most part, I avoid it completely. I have a nice stash of Lili of the Valley pattern paper and I use a small piece for my card.
This pretty DSP is from the "Sunny Side Up" collection. Unfortunately, Lili of the Valley discontinued this papers, when I found out about this, I went a little crazy and bought a few packs and pads. I love the primary colors on this paper and I picked this particular one for my card. I have this fabulous and retired SU die set called "Dress Up", I love this pretty shapes, they make the most adorable little dresses, I added a piece of red card stock and I punched a little flower from white paper and a little dot with red.
The stamped gifts are from a retired Flourishes set called "All Wrapped Up!" and the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Go Wild, it has absolutely gorgeous images of Wild Flowers.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment is from the same Power Poppy set and the stack of gifts is from the retired Flourishes set, stamped in Stazon Dove Gray ink.
USE DESIGNER PAPER IN A CAS STYLE.
This two elements are hard for me to work with, DSP and CAS style. I hope I achieved this on my card.
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
