Showcasing beautiful paper is an easy thing to do with Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series paper.  This card is starring the Splendid Day DSP.

This card was created during a Stampin’ Up! creative day for demonstrators.  It was a fun day of creating with a presenter with not a real idea of the outcome until the card was complete.  All of the cards were great and not something I would have normally thought to do.  This one definitely fits that last statement.

Suite of Products

Generally I do not showcase a Suite of products.  However, this Suite is amazing and I love all of the products included in the suite.  It is all about the Splendid Day Suite today.

PAPER:    The star(s) of this card are the little taco shaped DSP pieces.  They are cut from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The paper has a variety of soft colors with one side being a Foil and the other regular DSP images and designs.  To show so many different papers on one card is unusual even for me!  Last but not least is the card base of Petal Pink and the banner of Soft Sea Foam.  Both of these colors are included in the DSP.

DIES:    The taco looking pieces were cut using the die from the Splendid Stems Dies.  This shape is a favorite of mine.  I have used it on a few different cards because the shape and details are so unique.  A bonus is that two of the four sentiments included in the stamp set fit on this die cut!  And as you see on the card, it is a great size!

STAMPS:    To mimic the pattern in the Foil DSP pieces, the large leaf outline was used as Tone on Tone on the card base.  The Splendid Thoughts stamp set includes the sentiments I mentioned above plus a bee and two different stem/floral pieces.  Each of those have fill stamps as well.  Pairing these with the Die set, which has dies for those plus some extra leafy pieces, makes great focal layers.

Finishing Touches

The shine and taco shapes on this card are so pretty on their own.  And the added finishing touches simply emphasize these.  Even though the sentiment fits on the taco die, that would be a bit much.  So the sentiment was stamped on a piece of Soft Sea Foam.  Banner tips were cut using Paper Snips.

Also included in the Splendid Day Suite is the Soft Sea Foam 3/8″ Seam Binding Ribbon.  If you have used Seam Binding Ribbon before then you know how wonderful and easy it is to work with.  This ribbon is the same.  Plus we simply wrapped the ribbon around the white layer and tied a knot.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!

For the final touch there has to be a bit of bling.  Although with the foil DSP pieces there is already a good bit of shine!  The bling added to the sentiment is from the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds.

After seeing a bit of a different layout and use of dies, I would love for you to try a similar card and let me know what you think!!
