Casually Crafting Blog Hop – DSP Showcase

Welcome to our monthly Casually Crafting Blog Hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators, who would like to share our projects with you. We love cards that are simple and easy to make with just a few products, these would ideally suit beginner and casual crafter. We will be sharing our ideas on the 3rd Friday of each month and you can hop around the group and gather loads of inspiration. This months theme is Designer Series Paper Showcase. For this project I have based my projects areound the Artistry Blooms DSP, featuring the Hippo Happiness bundle.

Throughout October, DSP can be purchased at a 15% discount, please visit my online shop, to purchase DSP during October to benefit from this promotion.

Artistry Thanks

Using the Tailored Tag punch and a sentiment from Ornate Thanks, I have showcased all patterns of the Artistry Blooms DSP in this pretty colourful thank-you card.

I really love this DSP, it is so colourful, it makes me happy. Therefore to showcase further some of the patterns in this DSP I have paired it with the Hippo Happiness bundle.

‘Arty’ Happiness

My first card is a birthday card using the Hippo from the stamp set, with balloons from the dies. I just love the blues, pinks and purples in this DSP… Paired with a Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather hippo.

The unicorn in the set immediately spoke to me to become a pink unicorn (Magenta Madness and Flirty Flamingo) on a Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape base.

My last card, a double slider card with the lovely sheep, just had to be made using the Granny Apple Green DSP.

I hope you enjoyed my Designer Series Paper Showcase projects using the Artistry Blooms DSP project and the rest of the Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop projects.
