One item in the Annual Catalog that might easily be overlooked is the Serene Scenery DSP Stack. The catalog doesn’t do this paper justice by only showing a small section of it in the catalog. It is just GORGEOUS in person.
I decided I had to make a trio of cards that was simple yet beautiful with this paper.
For this first card I embossed the sentiment in our new Copper Embossing Powder. I love the copper look. I really like how this sentiment played into the beauty of the Serene Scenery DSP. Isn’t that a beautiful photo?! I wish I could take a picture like that!
The envelopes (above & below) were stamped with images from Better Together. I wanted to dress up the envelope in a different way than I usually do. I tend to add DSP to the inside or the outside flap of the envelope. This time I wanted to show that you do not have to have a bunch of DSP, a pretty stamp goes a long way.
The second card reminded me of when I was little and would blow the dandelion seeds everywhere. I immediately thought of wishes and knew I needed to make a birthday card. I die cut using Gold Foil Sheets and stamped “make a” in Delightful Dijon. I stamped happy birthday from Stylized Birthday stamp set into the inside.
To finish off the trio, I used Pop of Paradise stamp set on the envelope and the background Pineapple stamp set on the card. I used a Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write Marker for the base and a Cucumber Crush Stampin’ Write Marker for the top. I heat embossed the sentiment in Copper Embossing Powder. Love that stuff!
Tip: Use the Embossing Buddy before stamping to eliminate those unwanted flecks of powder on your card. I forgot on this card, but fortunately this DSP hides the extra flecks very well! Like I tell those that come to my classes, I make the mistakes so you don’t have to. You get to learn from my mistakes. LoL 🙂 Here’s a close up of the Pineapple and Copper Embossing.
