I love our DSP. The colors are rich, the designs are versatile, the finish of the paper is smooth, and the weight is Goldilocks perfect – not too heavy, not too light, but juuuuuust right. I’ve been challenging myself to dig into my stash (it’s a little embarrassing) and create with all of the beautiful paper I’ve found there.
- Stamps: So Sentimental
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry.
- Accessories: Stitched So Sweetly dies, die cutting machine, Peaceful Poppies DSP, Stampin’ Sponges, Red Rhinestone basic jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals, retired ribbon
I used a Stampin’ Sponge to lightly shade the front edge of my Whisper White card. I didn’t want the bold color of Pool Party card stock, but the WW seemed too stark. Sponging was the perfect solution as it provided a hint of color and a very simple technique.
That Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous and completely IN YOUR FACE. The colors and images are really bold, but they’re really easy to use. I reached for this combination first when I decided to dig into my DSP stash.
The So Sentimental bundle is a versatile bundle with unique and very useful stitched shapes that layer in a multitude of ways. This one is a keeper, and it’s carrying forward into the new Annual Catalog.
- Stamps: Peaceful Moments
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
- Accessories: Stitched Rectangles dies, Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding, Magnolia Lane DSP, Stampin’ Dimensionals
This same layout has a simpler construction. The DSP panels stand on their own without a complimentary mat behind them, and the Whisper White card base is left in its natural state. I struggle with simple stamping (ink, stamps, paper) but this is pretty close for me.
Are you a DSP hoarder? I confess that I am, but I have been sending a lot of cards lately, and my stash is getting a little thin. Cutting into this gorgeous paper is hard – you know, the first cut is the deepest – but the results are worth it!
A lot of our beautiful DSP is on sale in the Online Store. Hurry, supplies are limited!

Beautiful cards! The first cut is the deepest!!! Yes! I say CHOP IT UP!
Once you’ve cut into it it’s so much easier to use the rest, isn’t it?
