It’s time for another Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop – what fun! The Be Inspired Design Team is a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world who are excited to share our themed projects with you. I’m honored to be a part of this group of talented stampers.
The theme for today’s Be Inspired Hop is “My Favorite Designer Series Paper.” What fun! I am in love with so many of the new papers, but I decided to go with Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper – it’s fun and sweet but can also be dressed up. I went with “fun and sweet” for today’s project. If you aren’t starting the hop here, then you probably just popped over from a visit with my Aussie friend (and super-talent) Louise Sharp at louisesharp.com. She never disappoints!
Here’s my fun card for this hop:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Favorite Designer Series Paper. By now, it must seem like you are listening to broken record (there will soon come a day where the word “record” will make no sense to people) when I say how much I love Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. The variety of colors and patterns in Pick a Pattern are so fun – I’ve been showcasing it consistently since we were able to pre-order the paper back in April. It’s definitely been my go-to paper. I showcased the fun cameras and bold stripes on today’s project. How fun are they!? Here’s a look at all of the pages in this pack:
- On the Flap. Not only did I feature two patterns from Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper on this card, but I included a third pattern on the flap of my envelope. To tie the flap to the inside of the card, I used Stampin’ Write Markers to colors select circle in the pattern. What fun! See how perfectly they coordinate?
- Did You See it? While you were busy “oohing” and “aahing” at this whimsical card, did you notice how many times I played with the camera theme? Not only are cameras featured in this square pattern, but I used the “smile” sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set to complement the cameras. Oh, but it didn’t end there! I also shaped my focal piece like a Polaroid picture (another word that will soon make no sense to people). It’s not “in your face” but it’s there.
Stamp Sets: Colorful Seasons Papers: Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Whisper White, Crushed Curry Inks: Archival Basic Black, Stampin’ Write Markers (Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand) Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals
