How many hours of sleep do you really need? Usually mine varies from 5 to 8, eventually my old body catches up with me and I finally have to take a nap during the day. Does that mean I am getting old? I am definitely a night owl, I will stay up till midnight most nights, and then will read for a while. I am NOT a morning person, but if I do get on a regular routine, go to bed at a normal hour, get up early and get ready right away, I do get more done…why am I talking about this? Who knows, probably cause I am still a little tired from my fun weekend…and…I made this stinkin' cute card using the Sweet Slumber Specialty Textured Designer Series Paper…ha!
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Bordering Blue, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Going Gray, Ruby Red
Paper: Sweet Slumber Specialty Textured Designer Series Paper, Ruby Red, Kraft, Whisper White
Misc: White Organza ribbon, dimensionals
I stamped the flowers first on the back piece of whisper white cardstock and colored them in, then I stamped and colored the bird on a separate piece of cardstock and cut it out, and using dimensionals, I popped him up over top of the flowers, so it looks like he/she is sitting there.
Here you can see it a bit better, how it pops out, and look how pretty it is using the DSP as the main card…the inside is pretty too.
The new Textured Specialty papers are thicker and can stand up to be a card on their own, the regular DSP paper, really needs to be layered.
So tomorrow I will show another card using this same paper pack. This is a card for my 10/10/20 class this weekend, and it is important when you are planning classes, or even just making a bunch of cards on your own, to use up the other paper at the same time. So I am using this paper pack on several cards for class. Trying to be frugal in this economy and it allows me to let my class attendees use fun new stuff. When you are using your Designer Series Paper (DSP) make sure to check out the cardstock that matches it, because you will have several different DSP packs that you can combine if the colors match and the designs are not too wacky and clash, that is the great thing about 2-sided background paper. I have included a file that shows what cardstock goes with the current DSP. In the catalog it tells you underneath the DSP but I keep a few of these handy with my DSP to look at, it is just easier then getting out my catalog each time. I don't know where I got this sheet originally, it might have been Stampin' Up!, I just go in and modify it for each catalog when we get new paper. Here's the file.

Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
I love that bird image…. it makes such a beautiful card!!!!
And the color coordinator will come in handy….Thanks!!!
I love it when you make cards with sets that I have …cause then I can totally copy them!!!! I just got this 24-7 set and I even got the paper too.
HHmmmm…will it be bad if I put the same card you made…on my blog….a day later….Just kidding!!! I am gonna case this one though..but I'll just put it on my display board!!!!
I can't wait to get my new sets from the mini!
I LOVE this card and that textured DSP. Oh how I wish I lived in AZ or you lived in IL because I would SO have you as my demonstrator! I ordered the new catalog from my local demonstrator over a month ago and still have not received it. She charged $10 for it and my check has cleared the bank. I emailed her last week about it and she said that she forgot to mail it. AHHHH—sorry to vent but I just wish they were all as good as you :>)
I said all that to say this—now I can't wait to see what other great things are offered in the catalog.
Did you walk today?
