Oh So Subtle

Coordinating colors for the Stampin' Up! Subtles Designer Series Paper collection. Eleven coordinating Stampin' Up! colors are shown as pawprints beneath an image containing a collage of the designs in the collection.

I don’t know what it is about the Stampin’ Up! Subtles Core Color Collection but it’s always been my favorite.  It’s probably because I’m a huge fan of the beach and these colors all remind me of the beach and the sea.  *sigh*  Anywho – the Subtles 6″x6″ DSP is a must have.  The stripes, dots and colors in this collection will play well with almost every project.   Maybe I should have ordered two packs?  Hmmmmm….  The Subtles 6″x6″ DSP collection includes 40 sheets:  2 each of 2 double-sided designs in each of the 10 Subtles colors.  It’s part of the Subtles Core Color Collection.  To view all of the yummy Subtles Core Color Collection goodies click here.

Tea Anyone?

Coordinating colors guide for the Stampin' Up! Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper collection. Seven coordinating Stampin' Up! colors are shown as pawprints beneath an image containing a collage of the designs in the collection.

The vintage designs and soft colors of the Tea Room Specialty DSP draw you in.  It’s hard to take your eyes off of it.  The copper accents that make this a Specialty DSP hold your attention.  The paper is lightweight which makes it great for project accents, envelopes, envelope liners and scrapbook pages.  Tea Room Specialty DSP coordinates with the Tea Room Suite on pages 14-15 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.  The 12″x12″ DSP collection includes 24 sheets:  4 each of 6 double-sided designs.  We’ll be discussing Suites next week so here’s a bit of homework for you.  Go to page 14 in the catalog and check out the adorable projects you can make with the Tea Room Suite.  Which project is your favorite? Post your answer in the Comments section of this post and we’ll compare favorites next week.

Tranquility and Textures Abound

Coordinating colors guide for the Stampin' Up! Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper collection. Eight coordinating Stampin' Up! colors are shown as pawprints beneath an image containing a collage of the designs in the collection.

The Tranquil Textures DSP collection is THE collection for beautiful backgrounds. The hand-painted look add so much interest to a project.  I just love the pop of Fresh Fig in some of the designs.  The DSP is part of the Tranquil Textures Suite (pages 154-155 in the catalog) which has a nautical theme but I think the designs and color combinations work well across a variety of seasons and events.  They fit both masculine and feminine projects.  Lovin’ it.  The Tranquil Textures DSP collection includes twelve sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  Each sheet is 12″x12″.

Okay my friends.  Hang in there!  We’re on a roll now as we swing into the final stops on the New Designer Series Paper Makes My Heart Go Pitter Pat – Part 3 tour.

Christmas all year long!  Wouldn’t that be wonderful?  Well you can have a little bit of Christmas whenever you want it with the Under The Mistletoe DSP.  Christmas plaids, ornaments and other favorite holiday images adorn the papers in this collection.  Have a flannel guy or girl in your life?  Those flannel designs would work well on a card for them.  The Under The Mistletoe DSP coordinates with the Under The Mistletoe Suite (pages 94-95) in the Annual Catalog.  The 12″x12″ DSP collection has 12 sheets:  2 each of 6 double-sided designs.

It’s FINALLY here!  The last stop on the New Designer Series Paper Makes My Heart Go Pitter Pat – Part 3 tour!  Whew!  So last but certainly not least…

Reunion With An Old Friend

Coordinating colors guide for the Stampin' Up! Wood Textures 6"x6" Designer Series Paper collection. Ten coordinating Stampin' Up! colors are shown as pawprints beneath an image containing a collage of the designs in the collection.

Wood Textures DSP is carrying over from the last annual catalog.  It’s like a reunion with an old friend.  This beautiful collection of photographic wood-themed designs for masculine- and nature-themed projects.  Imagine it paired with the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set (part of the Rooted In Nature Bundle) and other elements in the Nature’s Poem Suite!  See this is why I love Stampin’ Up!  Everything works with everything else.  It’s magical.  The Wood Textures DSP collection is 6″x6″ and includes: 48 sheets – 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  To see a card I made using this DSP click here.
