DSP Delight

We all have some. Those pieces of DSP that we just pull out and admire and dream of the possibilities. I had one such piece and have seen many posts on Pinterest and Instagram using it beautifully. Still it remained uncut. Still dreaming.

Then I was asked to make a special 70th Birthday card so I relented and here it is. It is retired now but the combination of copper, glimmer and colour have been well combined in the new catalogue with these papers. I just don’t have mine yet!!  

My DSP was the Affectionately Yours which is now retired, as is the Love and Affection Stamp Set I used on the inside. Thankfully Beautiful You on the front and the Large Number Framelits are still current.

Enjoy Naomi.

Remember no question is ever wrong or unwarranted. Ask away.

Finally the New Catalogue.

As a demonstrator, the month of May often seems very long as I contain my desires and excitement for the new Products from the Annual Catalogue.  Yes we get to have a play with some of them but not everything is available.

And play I have done. Some in preparation for Our Catalogue Launch with Irma Bradford, some for fun and some with my friend and upline Vicky Wright.

This is one of those created with Vicki who came up with the idea to use the Daisy punch for the skirt on this lady from the Beautiful You Stamp Set. 

The petals were punched from the Delightful Daisy DSP. Her Top was colored with Water Coloring pencils but her hat was cut from the DSP and adhered.

The base card is  – one of the new In colors, Tranquil Tide – a delightful soft grey green.

A sprinkling of Rhinstones and the New Glitter Enamel Dots helped to complete the top half of the card.

Again I used the same DSP and added a sentiment from Rose Wonder Stamp Set to complete the bottom.

Daisy Lady

The fold used is called a Dutch Door and is quiet popular at the moment as the top half – where we have our square –  can be any shape and attached to the base card but not all the way across.

Call back as I will add here  a link to a tutorial on Vicky Wrights Blog later.

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.


Beautiful You

Have been playing with this delightful stamp set but not wanting to repeat what has been on Pinterest. There are some awesome examples of what you can do with the new stamp sets from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues on there but I like to use my creative brain when I can. After all the more I use it the less likely I am to get Alzheimers.

Now what was I talking about?

Oh yes the card below.

She was created by using Paper Piecing, to see how download the tutorial.

Here Beautiful You #9


For any of the Crafty Creation ladies this will be our card for the  first day back on the 27th January.

For anyone else who might be living in the Sunshine Coast at Queensland and would like to join us visit the Caloundra Community Centre FaceBook Page for details.

Happy Days Naomi.
