Stamp Off DSP Challenge

Hey Crafters.  It's our first Stamp Off Challenge
for March.   Susan, Buffy and I are featuring cards with our
favorite Designer Series Paper.

When it comes to DSP, Stampin' Up! has a bunch of
lovely packs to pick from.  My favorite has got to be the 
Peaceful Poppies DSP on page 25 of the Jan -June 2020 
catalog.  This paper is so effective
as a stand-alone background, paired with your favorite
sentiment.  In this example, I used the 
So Sentimental bundle (So Sentimental Stamp set with
Stitched So Sweetly Dies) on page 20.  These products
are a perfect pairing.  

At church, I am changing up our name tags, by putting
the printed names on a DSP background.  I had to use some
of the Peaceful Poppies paper, because it was just too
stunning to keep to myself.  Now those name tags Pop!

Now that you've checked out my card, please
click on over to see the projects offered by
Buffy and Susan

Best Catch with Catch of the Day Dies

The Best Catch Bundle with Catch of the Day Dies
(on page 150), has got to be one of my favorites. 
Having been born and raised in Wisconsin, this is a
familiar scene.   Wisconsin fish really put up a
good fight.  In this example, I simply colored the lure 
and fish with blends and stacked the elements on the 
card.  I love the fact that you can color fish any way
that you want, so that any card stock can be used.

Honey Bee with Golden Honey DSP

Happy Monday!   I decided to buzz by with a
Honey Bee card.  That background layer comes from
the SAB Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I added gold foil, and a gold bee.  
It doesn't get any quicker than this, and is
perfect for a male birthday.  Sadly, you can't quite
see how flashy this card is.
