Do it yourself....

I was making cards for a swap recently and I noticed my card needed a little extra something. I liked the color combination I was using, but I did not have any Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on hand that coordinated with my card so I decided to make my own! I used the Fine Flourish stamp to create the design on some Melon Mambo card stock.

All Stampin' Up! supplies used:
  • Fine Flourish stamp
  • Melon Mambo card stock
  • Basic Gray card stock
  • Top Note die cut
  • Fun Flowers die cut
  • Square Lattice embossing folder
  • Designer Buttons
  • Linen Thread
  • Dimensionals
  • Basic Black ink
  • Oval Punch
  • Scallop Oval Punch

I stamped the small flower and the accent paper beneath the scalloped oval to tie it all together! I love how I was able to use what I had to create this card!  I cannot forget to mention how much I love my embossing folders too! What would I do without my Big Shot??? Yikes!


  1. This is very pretty! I love that giant flower!

  2. Great card and I love your "make your own DSP". Very clever and looks good. TFS!

  3. Very Cute, I love the embossing folders too!!


  4. Very clever -- I love the homemade DSP!
