Creating pretty cards with left over Designer Series Paper!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a quick and easy card using up my left-over Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper! I do have a few sheets of this DSP left-over from making my Halloween cards, but that doesn’t mean it should go to waste! While there are a few of the designs that are definitely a Halloween theme, there are other’s that are not! So, for today I’m going to show you how to make six simple cards using up not just the DSP, but also the glitter paper and the iridescent pearls! 

For the base layer, I used this design from the Magic in this Night DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the front of the card, you will need:

1. Use the largest shape layering die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die-cut from Black Glitter Paper.

2. Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White cardstock and die-cut out with the second smallest rectangle layering die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die-cut out.

3. Cut a piece of the Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon to go across the front of the DSP base layer, adhering the ends to the backside.

4. Not pictured, three of the 4mm Iridescent Pearls.

Use a bit of adhesive in the middle of the ribbon to adhere across the middle of the DSP base layer and then adhered the ends to the backside:

Use liquid glue to adhere the stamped sentiment in the middle of the die-cut glitter paper and then use dimensionals to adhere to the DSP base layer, over the ribbon. I chose three different flowers to place the Iridescent Pearl to the middle of the flower:

This completed piece is adhered to a Pretty Peacock cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Pretty Peacock ink, and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the side:

With your basic 12” x 12” of DSP, you can make six of these cards! Since I have a bunch of the linen ribbon and really need to use them up before these colors retire at the end of this Annual Catalog, I just changed the cardstock and ink colors! I also changed the layout from horizontal to vertical, or landscape to portrait, just to change things up:

These cards are so simple and easy to make, with the help of my Stamparatus! I cut the glitter paper and cardstock down so I could easily get the die-cutting out of the way, then I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment for the card front and the sentiment for the inside of the card! My Simply Shammy made cleaning the stamps in-between color changes a snap!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
