You might already know the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers (DSP's) is a major addiction of mine. If you look at my retired Stampin' Up! inventory, you'll see quite a lot of DSP's on sale, as well as loads of other paper products. Because I tend to hoard my DSP's, I've been collecting jpg samples to inspire me to actually cut and use them. On the demo site Stampin' Up! recently provided 3 card templates and samples of how to use DSP's. Two of the templates use little bits and pieces, IE perfect to use up your tiny scraps. I love no waste!
Click any of the templates or samples for an enlarged view.
After cutting DSP for a project, it's really common to have narrow strips left over. Here's a fun way to use them! To get the nice finished end in the strips, use the Banner Triple punch. Or use either the Best Badge punch or even the Sweetheart punch.
|With this template, you get 6 background pieces at 4" x 5.25" from each 12" x 12" DSP sheet. You'll have a 1" x 12" strip left over for the top template. I love this template because you get to see a nice chunk of the gorgeous DSP. Use a wafer thin die from the Layering Circle Die set or the Layering Square Die set, or any number of the various Die sets to cut the perfect size and shape of solid cardstock for the perfect sentiment.|
|Here's another great template for using DSP scraps with a small Layering Circle or Layering Square Framelit.|
If you have some decorative papers to play with, now you have 3 great card templates for using your papers. Of course, you can find 100's, if not 1,000's, of ideas if you visit Pinterest and search "Designer Series Papers".
