DSP Challenge - who's game?

I challenge my fellow SU bloggers to post at least one card or project each week that uses some of the beautiful designer series papers offered through SU. I have loads of it but am very 'cautious' when it comes to using it - which is crazy!. SO who's game? Here are some things I have done with DSP.
This one uses Sunny Garden.
Card Stock: Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait
Ribbon: Poppy Parade
Ink: Basic Gray, Poppy Parade marker, Peach Parfait marker
Punches: Pinking Hearts Border corner, Modern Label, Word Window
Stamp Sets: Blissful Bride, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Lap of Luxury is one of my favorites from the current catalog.
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Concord Crush
Ribbon: Concord Crush
Brads: Pretty in Pink
Punches: 1 3/8 circle, 1 3/4 scallop circle, Word Window, Modern Label
Stamp Set: Simply Said, Teeny Tiny Wishes

What a colorful birthday card using Celebrations DSP!

Punches: 1 3/4 inch scallop circle, 2 3/8 scallop circle, Word Window, Modern Label

This card uses the Presto Paper - it is white with a white embossed design on it. The design is not noticeable until you add some color to the paper using a brayer, spritz, sponge, etc.
I used a brayer and Cajun Craze ink pad on this one, then used Early Espresso ink to stamp the leaf images. One of my favorites!

I can't believe it - I found you doing a Google search with your name and added rubber stamping and the second thing was this challenge! :))))
Now I'm going back to read the entire post!

These are great cards! I actually used some DSP yesterday and it is now up on my blog. It is Stamping With Judy entry.

I've been trying to use up some DSP lately too. Especially older, retired sets. But I'm like you and have some sort of crazy attachment to it so it's hard to actually want to use it!
