Feature of the Week – Simply Marbleous DSP #1

I do hope you have all had a great weekend.  If you are anywhere near the waters, please take care.

Thank you to everyone who reached out asking if I was ok & yes all is good as we have not been affected.

I have been playing with the lovely Simply Marbleous DSP from Sale-a-Bration of late & am loving the colours & patterns although I seem to be gearing towards the one side in particular.

This Paper is Level 1 which you can earn for FREE when spending $90!

Not only will I be showcasing the papers, but I will also be showcasing the ever so versatile Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set – perfect for all occasions especially Manly Monday!

First up I had to decide what colours I could use with the Smokey Slate sheet of Paper so I opted for Daffodil Delight, Garden Green with Basic White tossed in too.  Way out of my comfort zone but hey it is always good to try new combinations.

The DSP was randomly chopped into 3 pieces before adhering to a piece of Garden Green Cardstock ensuring that the patterns match in & leaving a small amount of Garden Green around all sides.  This layer was then adhered to a Smokey Slate Base Card.

I stamped a sentiment from Inspired Thoughts onto scrap Basic White with Smokey Slate Ink prior to die cutting with the Messages Dies & adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an image from Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink prior to fussy cutting, trimming part of the stem a little & adhering to the top of the sentiment shape with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To finish the card, I grabbed a couple of the new Classic Matte Dots which are available in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue & adhered these to the front.  I think they finished the card off perfectly.

I wasn’t too sure how this colour combination would work but I have to admit I think they work in well together, don’t you?

Need supplies to create today’s project at home?  Don’t forget to use January’s Host Code – GBDGREJN –  if your order is under $250.   All orders receive a PDF Tutorial & a Handmade Card from me.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

G’Day Friends,

You may notice over the next few days a repeat of a couple of previous posts.  My blog has been updated meaning that I have lost the last few posts.

My card I am sharing with you today is one that I created for a Take 5 Challenge over in our World Card Making Group where we had to create a project with Soft Succulent Card Base, Smokey Slate Cardstock, Blending Brush, Die Cut or Stencil & the lovely Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon.

I created my card with the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks where I blended Soft Succulent Ink over a piece of Basic White Cardstock with Soft Succulent Ink & a Blending Brush.

This piece of cardstock was layered onto Smokey Slate prior to a piece of the lovely Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon adhered across the front & then layered onto the Soft Succulent Base Card.

The sentiment is from the Many Messages Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White, die cut with a die from the Messages Dies & adhere to the right side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To comple the card Soft Succulent In Colour Jewels were randomly adhered to the front.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!
