Spotlight on Designer Series Paper—Part 3

Hi Stamping Friends!

Join me on my Too Cool Stamping Facebook page an hour after the release to hear my first impressions of newly released Retired List.  Plus, bring your catalog and a highlighter and I'll walk you through page-by-page, so you can mark the retired stamps along with me!  It will be much easier than looking back and forth to get the info off the PDF!

Darla - Falling In Love Beautiful You

Created by Darla Eigenschink.

Darla's Falling In Love Paper Pieced Card

The Beautiful You stamp set is so fun for trying the Paper Piecing Technique.  Too Cool Team Member Darla Eigenschink created this lovely card using the soft & pretty colors in the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper.

Background Basics—Darla started this card by wrapping some Very Vanilla Lace Trim around a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Falling In Love Designer Paper, then adhering that to a Sahara Sand card base.

Darla - Falling In Love Beautiful You 2

Paper Piecing—Darla stamped the Beautiful You dancing girl image in Memento Black onto a 2-7/8" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  She stamped the same image on another Falling In Love DSP pattern, then cut out the dress and hat with super-sharp Paper Snips.  Those pieces were adhered onto the original stamped image with Multipurpose Glue. TIP: Use that Silicone Craft Mat to keep your work surface clean.  See my 7 Ways To Use The Silicone Craft Mat video.

Finishing Details—Darla stamped the Beautiful You sentiment on the top with Memento Black ink.  The piece is matted onto a 3" x 4-1/8" piece of Blushing Bride card stock, then popped up with Dimensionals.  So, so pretty!

Remarkable You Faux Linen Card

Not only does this project spotlight the often forgotten Irresistably Floral Designer Series Paper, it also features a Too Cool technique that doesn't get used nearly enough anymore!  Plus, it uses soon-to-retire Watermelon Wonder In Color ink—get those In Colors before they sell out!

Irresistible Background—Sponge Watermelon Wonder ink onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the diamond pattern of Irresistibly Floral DSP, then adhere it to a Basic Black card base.  

Faux Linen StampingTIP: Be sure your work surface is covered for this part, because the ink will bleed through the tissue paper.  You can use a Silicone Craft Mat for easy cleanup. See my 7 Ways To Use The Silicone Craft Mat video.

Stamp the Remarkable You flower in Black Archival Ink onto a 4" x 4-1/2" piece of white tissue paper and let dry.  Then, color the flower with Stampin' Write Markers using Watermelon Wonder for the flower, Daffodil Delight for the flower center and Pear Pizzazz for the stem.  Let dry completely,  Crumple up the tissue paper into a small ball, then carefully unfold it. 

Place a 3" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White on a Silicone Craft Mat.  Add some Multipurpose Adhesive glue to the corner of the mat.  Using a clean sponge, dab the glue onto the card stock to cover the entire piece, paying special attention to the edges and corneres.  Cover the card stock with the stamped on tissue, using you fingertips to tap it into place.  Do not smooth out the wrinkles.  Let dry, then use Paper Snips to trim the tissue off the edges. 

Adhere the image to a 3-1/4" x 3-3/4" Black card stock mat, then pop up with Dimensionals at an angle.

Sweet Sentiment—Stamp the greeting from the Watercolor Wishes Kit in Black ink onto a 3/4" x 2-3/4" Whisper White piece, fishtail the ends and attach with Dimensionals.
