Paper Tricks

Tuesday's class was all about paper tricks.  There are so many gorgeous ways of using our DSPs for cardmaking.  The first card used Bargello which I first encountered in Impressions, the monthly newsletter sent to all demonstrators.  It's actually an embroidery technique using long flat stitches, but the effect can be achieved with strips of paper.  Each strip is adhered slightly lower or higher than the one beside it.

I was so pleased with how everyone's cards worked out.  This DSP is one of the Hostess choices.  The stamp, Triple Treat Flower, is my favourite of the a la carte stamps.

Stamps:  Triple Treat Flower, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Card:  Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Cheerful Treat DSP
Ink:  Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo
Tools:  Fancy Flower Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, 1.3 cm Circle Punch, Square Punch

Next up we tried some paper quilting.  Looks spectacular but it is surprisingly easy.

Card:  Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence (retired), Cottage Garden DSP
Tools:  Paper Trimmer (perfect for cutting 1 cm strips of paper!), Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die

Thanks for stopping by!
