Welcome to Theme Week Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Monday 3/12 – Saturday 3/17
I am hope you are enjoying the Theme Weeks I have been doing for the last few months. I am having fun creating new ideas for you. I picked DSP this time because I know there are so many things we can do with it. From a basic background on a card, to creating dimensions by cutting-crinkling-folding-and embossing. I will show each of these ideas this week.
Today’s project using ¾” strips of DSP to create a background for a card.
To create this background, I started with Thick Whisper White card stock (cs) and added a layer of Petal Passion DSP to the base. Then I cut a 3 ¾” x 5” piece of Whisper White cs and covered it with adhesive by using the Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheets. Once one side was complete ‘sticky’ I began layering by starting with a diagonal line from corner to corner. I continued to lay strips over the Whisper White cs until it was completely covered.
Then, using Liquid Glue I add a few stripes of Mini Sequin Trim to match. Once all of the layering was completed I trimmed off the ‘tails’ by flipping the Whisper White cs over so I could see the lines and trimmed with Paper Snips. I found this works better, especially on the sequin trim, than the Stampin’ Trimmer.
I then layered this onto Basic Black cs and adhere to card front. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cs and also matted with Basic Black cs and added to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope you will come back tomorrow to see a fun crinkled distress idea.
Until Next time . . .
Hugs, Karie B.
