Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! This week we are featuring our favorite new designer series paper from the catalog.
Designer Series Paper is a favorite product of mine, so many great patterns to choose from. It’s an easy way to add color and dress up your cards or projects. So far, I think that A LITTLE FOXY DSP is my favorite. But since I go through phases of favorites, that can change tomorrow! But for now, A LITTLE FOXY and the coordinating stamp set FOXY FRIENDS are on my desk all the time.
The colors in this collection of papers are GORGEOUS! I especially love stripes right now, so I used that particular paper for my card today.
The striped paper provides a fabulous background for my card. It gives interest without being too overwhelming. I added in the banners from another design of the DSP, I just fussy cut enough of the banners to go across the top of the card. You’ll notice that I added in a couple other stamp sets as well. They just coordinated so well with this card, I had to! Love all the birthday sets available and how well they all work together! BALLOON CELEBRATION was a perfect addition for the fox to hold a sweet balloon. And NUMBER OF YEARS provided a fabulous sentiment. Both the balloon and sentiment were heat embossed to stand out and give a little texture to the card.
Did you know that I used this fabulous stamp set FOXY FRIENDS for my tutorial in the upcoming JULY MINI SESSION? Yep, a super fun 3D project with these cute little critters that you won’t want to miss! How about a sneak peek……..
