Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Schoolhouse DSP


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Amanda's  blog.

Here are the essentials:
  • Let the DSP take centre stage. The gray numbers-patterned design from Schoolhouse DSP was perfect for this theme and the sketch
  • Diagonal? The pattern on this sheet of DSP isn’t diagonal, but you can easily change the orientation of any DSP if you like. I used the inspiration from CASE This Sketch and rotated the paper to suit. 
  • Need a coloured 3D sentiment...emboss it! If you have a wooden sentiment but you want a white finish on it, just cover it in Versamark and heat emboss it. I used two layers of White Emboss Powder + one layer of Iridescent Ice. White & sparkly! 
  • Layer the DSP. By putting a narrow layer of Basic Grey card stock around the Schoolhouse paper, it finishes the card and makes the patterned paper pop.
  • Make your own matching envelope. During the process of cutting a diagonal piece of DSP resulted in a triangular piece of DSP as an off-cut, I thought it would make a great envelope liner so I made my own envelope with the Envelope Punch Board and the Neutrals Envelope Paper

Here is our theme for this week....
