I chose to feature the Color Theory Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack. I don’t use DSP very often but when I do, I love stamping on them & the Color Theory DSP stack is great for this!
Here’s my first project, a gift card holder birthday card…
I used the Old Olive ombre paper & stamped it using the “bubbles” image from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. I thought this created a really fun background on the DSP. I also added a line of them to the inside of the card.
The candles were decorated using the Dapper Denim & Old Olive crackle pattern. Here’s a close up of the candles…
I thought this made them look like camo candles hehe 🙂
And here’s a look at the inside & the gift card holder part…
The holder was created by scoring at 1/2″ & 2 1/4″. Then I punched an opening using the Classic Label punch. I also extended the opening to fit a credit card sized gift card. It was then a matter of adhering the flap but making sure to not seal off the punched opening.
My next project is an any occasion card…
Again, I used the ombre paper but this time in Dapper Denim & stamped it with the Hardwood stamp. My focal piece, the motorbike art, was created using the faux metal technique & I thought it looked like a nice piece of art that would hang in a “Man Cave”. Here’s a close up…
The motorbike art piece is only attached with the silver Enamel Shape so it can move freely like a proper wall art. As for the sentiment piece, I decided to make it look like a plaque that would also be suitable to hang in a “Man Cave”. Here’s a close up…
The sentiment was embossed in Copper emboss powder onto Basic Black cardstock. I stamped the Hardwood stamp onto a piece of Champagne foil using Versamark first then Soft Suede ink. Then I clear embossed it & punched it with the new Everyday Label punch. I think it looks amazing if I do say so myself haha 😀
I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed creating them.
