Using DSP in Home Decor Projects

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper isn't just for card making and scrapbooking. Put it to use in your home decor projects.

Here is my latest home decor project. I had a bare wall in my new home and just couldn't find something I loved for this space. So after 18 months of looking at this bare wall, I started thinking what can I make to fill that space until I find something that really speaks to me, something more permanent. This is what I came up with. I adhered 6 sheets of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 12" x 12" stretched canvases. I love how they turned out, and I had so much fun making them. I found a new way to use some of my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper for an easy to make home decor project that costs just a few dollars. Now, I have something pretty to look at instead of a bare wall, and am getting lots of compliments on it too. And best of all, it's such an inexpensive project that I can change it out at any time without feeling guilty. I can change it out to coordinate with the seasons, holidays, or new accent pillows if I choose. And when I find something more permanent for this wall, I will likely find a new place for this wall collection.

I used the same process for this project that I did for my DIY Designer Series Paper Coasters. You can see that video demonstration with this link:

  1. I absolutely love this! I’m sure it looks perfect in your house…now you can add designer to your list of amazing things you are!!

  2. Mary,
    These are absolutely beautiful!! I LOVE Stampin Up’s DSP!! Can you tell me how you attached the paper to the canvas? Did you seal the paper at all.
    Thank you,
    Katie Funk

  3. Oh, Susi, I’d love to be a designer but don’t think I’m quite there yet! But I will take you compliment and be proud of my project. It does make me happy to look at a pretty wall.

  4. Kate Funk, thank you so much! I love Stampin’ Up! DSP too. It is the best! I attached the DSP to the stretched canvases with Modge Podge, smoothed paper, and let dry completely. I like to seal these and my DIY DSP Coasters with Matte Finish Acrylic Spray. This sealer does not leave any brush strokes on the finished product like sealing with Modge Podge would. (I use same process with my DSP canvases & my DSP coasters. There is a link with video demonstration of making my DSP Coasters in post above.) I hope this helps.
