Simple Stamping with Designer Series Paper

Do you have extra pieces of Designer Series Paper you’re not sure what to do with? Well, never fear! Here are a few ideas to help you use your Designer Series Paper in unexpected ways!

The Stampin’ Up! concept artist did just that to create the Happiest of Birthdays card. Simply take some Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper, throw in some Mint Macaron cardstock and a sweet birthday sentiment, and voila! You have an adorable birthday card made from leftover Christmas paper, and it’s so cute, no one can even tell.

In the Happy Birthday card, we wanted to emphasize the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper. And who wouldn’t? We decided to let the paper do the heavy lifting and embellished it only with a simple sentiment and some metallic heat embossing. You’re sure to wow anyone with this stunning paper.

In our Birthday Wishes card, we used some Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper and blended Blushing Bride Ink with Blending Brushes, and created a sweet birthday card. Who knew that Halloween-themed paper could be used any time of the year?

These techniques are perfect for beginner stampers, and they help get rid of that stash of awkward Designer Series Paper pieces we know you have. So, break out your extra scraps of paper, go make some fun cards, and share all your fun creations on my FaceBook Group Customer PaperCrafty Time Group!! I love to see what you come up with!
