How Do I Use Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper?

Paper crafting/ Uncategorized

Hey Stampers! I'm here today to share a tip that stems from a customer question I get asked all of the time. How do I use Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper? I have so many peeps who buy the paper packs and then just hoard it. They tell me, “I can't bear to cut it up”! While I totally get that sentiment, I want them to not just buy, but to USE it! So, my tip today is to use the Designer Series Paper (DSP) as a layer on your project.

I personally think that black  and white can be used with just about any other colors and really sets apart your stamped focal point.

This sheet is actually from a FREE Sale-A-Bration gift, the Botanical Butterfly DSP. Just look at the pretty patterns on this paper. My project today could use the black polka dot or striped black and white patterns as well.

Here are a few more samples using the same free paper pack. It is so versatile…and free with a $50 order (before tax and shipping)! If you'd like to purchase products so you can get this paper free, please click HERE to go to my online store.
