DSP Workshop

I am hosting a DSP (Designer Series Paper) Workshop on 1/21 and 1/24. It's called "Half Sheet Wonder".(Check out my Calendar for details - Mary's Stampin Up Calendar ) Each participant receives a half-sheet of DSP (their choice of what I have available) and the coodinating card stock and embellishments to make 9 cards. Cost is $15.00 which also includes the template for cutting the DSP and general instructions for all 9 cards.
Last night and this afternoon I played with a couple different sheets of DSP to make some samples. What fun! I cut all the DSP and sorted it by card design. Some of the DSP required alterations to the original design but that is part of the fun :-)


This is the original set of 9 cards I made with a sheet of retired Georgia Peach. I tried to use a variety of stamp sets, tools and techniques.


This is another sheet of the retired Georgia Peach. I altered a couple just to give the participants some options.
Here I used a sheet of retired Tall Tales DSP. It coordinates with Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Old Olive. I did do one Regal Rose card just to show how you can switch things up a little.




I am also trying to use up a package of Bermuda Bay retired card stock and pulled out a sheet of the retired Throughly Modern DSP. I love the colors in this - Bermuda Bay, Rose Red, Sahara Sand and Soft Suede.



And to really shake things up I grabbed a sheet of First Edition. This paper and the Tall Tales were a challenge because the design has a definite top and bottom. This is the only set I made with current paper. First Edition is available through the Mini Occassions catalog and looks like pages from an encyclopedia or other reference book. I teamed it up with Basic Black, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler.

When I finally came out of my craft room, guess who I found sitting in my chair?
He totally ignored me hoping I would leave him in peace.
