I don’t know about you, but I believe Stampin’ Up! has the best Designer Series Paper.  It is beautiful, coordinates perfectly, and is doubled sided.  And I believe it is thicker than other designer papers as well.

For me, this stamp set was a bit of a sleeper.  I immediately fell in love with the Designer Series Paper. What is not to love about the classiness of Navy?  But the stamp set was so so.  Until the first time I inked it up!!!  OMG…..  I love the variation in the flower.  It is almost a faded look on parts of it.  I remember stamping in about six different colors just to see how the variation looked in the different colors.  It is a WOW!, at least to  me.  So here it is…..

This is actually a pretty quick card to make as there is very little stamping involved.  Using this layout, which primarily uses DSP, you could make quick cards using your DSP scraps.  That is definitely a Win/Win to me.  I hope you will fall in love with this set like I did.  I made a package of our note cards into Thank You cards for a friend.  I used this set with Rich Razzleberry ink.  Those were awesome !!  I challenge you to try the different colors and let me know what you think.

 

The base is our Thick Whisper White Card Stock.

  • The Night of Navy layer = 5 1/4 X 4
  • The DSP layer = 5 X 1 1/4, and 5 X 2 1/2
  • The small Night of Navy layer = 3 1/2 X 2 1/2
  • The Whisper White layer = 3 3/8 X 2 3/8

The stamped layer is raised up with dimensional for an added interest.
