The new Designer Series Paper in the 2017-2018 catalog is so wonderful! It was hard for me to pick a favorite for Friday Favorites. But I did, the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper:
Just look at all those beautiful colors and patterns! I made a few cards to share with you today:
There isn't much stamping on this card because the paper is SO PRETTY! I started with a Soft Sky card base and added a Peekaboo Peach layer under the DSP. I used the Eclectic Layers thinlit dies to create the Night of Navy die cut. The die only cuts the insides out so I fussy cut around it. I used the Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes dies for my sentiment and some of the Berry Burst Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon.
This card showcases the gems in the Designer Series Paper. And instead of the Oh So Eclectic stamp set, I used the You're Priceless stamp set because it does coordinate with the Eclectic Layers Dies. I used a Night of Navy card base with a Soft Sky background. I balanced the gem paper with some Lemon Lime Twist stamped with my sentiment. For the actual gem, I sponged some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper with Lemon Lime Twist and ran it through the Big Shot. Then I cut the outline in Lemon Lime Twist and glued the sparkly pieces on. So fun!
For this card you can really see all the colors in this DSP and the beautiful water color effect. I used a Emerald Envy card base and added the chevron print over top. On Whisper White I stamped the leaves twice without reinking to get two shades of Emerald Envy. Then I added my flower which was stamped in Peekaboo Peach with a Berry Burst die cut over top. I did some background stamping with Soft Sky and added the sentiment in Berry Burst. I added a strip of the copper trim and some rhinestones for some sparkle.
It is clear that I love this paper! To see some of the other favorite Designer Series Paper from the gals on the Design Team, head back to SSI.
