…and thinking I had posted this card earlier for the challenge over at Stamping 411. Proves I have not had a very good day & need to get to bed.
Today’s sketch uses a simple technique that we sometimes forget about — Tearing! Tearing your cardstock or DSP adds great interest and texture and is a fast, easy and very inexpensive way to dress up a card or project!
Measurements – 1.Layer One — Cardbase cut at 5.5 x 8.5″, scored and folded 2.Layer Two — Cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25″ 3.Layer Three — Cardstock of DSP cut at 4″ wide and torn at approximately 4″ 4.Layer Four — DSP cut at 2.5 x 3.5″ 5.Layer Five — Cardstock cut at 2.25 x 3.25″
For this card I pulled out my DSP Woodand Park, but wanting to use a pattern that I hadn’t used previously. That is the best thing about the DSP from SU®, it is double-sided. I love tearing, but am always very hesitant on tearing DSP, especially the ones you love so much, although once I start, there is no holding me back.
I stamped my image using Chocolate Chip Ink onto Watercolour Paper, grabbed my Aqua Painter & Garden Green Ink, & proceeded to colour the image. I then stamped a flower image directly onto Watercolour Paper using Chocolate Chip Ink. Cut it out & again coloured the image with Garden Green Ink & Aqua Painter. I adhered it to the card using SU Dimensionals. I used Chunky Sprinkles for the centre of the flower.
I’ve been asked to make 12 Post-It Notes for small Christmas Gifts. I wanted to keep them simple & not have too much on the front. With being in your bag all the time, they tend to get knocked around a lot, so keeping them simple suited the purpose.
I’ve kept with the basic Post-It Notes Holder, as I don’t think you can beat a classic. It is so easy to make.
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
Score at 3 1/2″ & 4″
Embellish as desire
In this case, I printed all the names on the pc.

I’ve created this card for the challenge over at Creative Sketches I’ve never attempted a challenge over there, but this one looked quiet good & immediately thought Male, along with the DSP- Woodland Walk from SU® The jury is still out on this one, but think maybe it is starting to grow on me.
I’ve used both Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbons on this card. I wanted to highlight the Very Vanilla in the DSP, while at the same time break up the joining of the DSP using Chocolate Chip.
I punched 3 stars using the small Star Punch & adhered to the DSP. Using my 1/16″ Handheld Circle Punch, I punched 3 dots using Chocolate Chip Cardstock – a little fiddley, but it is what I had in my mind, so I had to fiddle for a little. I then adhered these to the middle of the stars & applied Crystal Effects over the top to give a little more dimension.
For the sentiment, I used the stamp from Perfect Punches, stamped it in Chocolate Chip & punched out using Extra-Large Oval Punch. I then adhered this directly to the DSP.
All in all, a very simple & clean male card!

What started out as a piece of Taffeta Ribbon knotted together turned into this. I found this piece in amongst my stash & decided to work a card around it. What better DSP than – Woodland Walk – so much potential & I am not a green person, yet I enjoy working with browns & greens – go figure!
