We have so many beautiful DesignerPapers in the Stampin’ Up! catalog and I just love the Woven Threads DSP. I think I love it because the designs are so faded and soft. Sort of like antique drapes or upholstery. I think I also love it because it coordinates perfectly with the newest set of In Colors. And this design that highlights Seaside Spray and Rocco Rose is a special favorite.
This card was for my monthly Demonstrator Group challenge. I wish we had a blog hop so everyone’s designs could be shared. Each month we set a general theme and the cards are fabulous. I think I will ask next month if I can post them all on my blog. Trust me, it will be a treat for you to see all the wonderful creations!
This month, the theme was “Thinking of You”. We try to create designs that feature the product well and that we think will inspire our customers to create. And we try to include a little technique. For example, I used a frame from the Lakeside die set for the sentiment and backed it with a rectangle of DSP, just to give it a different look. Its a simple layering technique that requires only your paper trimmer! But it can really set off a sentiment.
I used the Forever Blossoms set from the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the January-June Mini Catalog. It was a perfect fit for the paper. Paris is famous for its street markets where many fashion designers look for antique and vintage linens and fabrics as inspiration for prints. I can imagine this DSP being created from some of those finds.
So, take a look at the Woven Heirlooms Threads Suite and create your own special Heirloom!
