ICS July Blog Hop Fun with Designer Series Paper


The theme of this months' ICS Blog Hop is Fun with Designer Series Paper. Right up my alley! I LOVE creating with DSP and usually grab it first when I sit down to start creating something new. I especially love that each pack of DSP gives me color combinations to use. This takes so much of the guess work out of creating. Of course, each pack of DSP has gorgeous images and patterns to go with their own unique theme. For my post for this month's Fun with Designer Series Paper blog hop, I've chosen to use the Tidings of Christmas DSP from our current Annual Catalog (pages 88-89, 133).

Tidings of Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

There are so many beautiful prints in the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper. I love the color palette as well which includes Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Sahara Sand, Soft Succulent, and Basic White.

The Holly & Berries Dies are such a great addition to the Christmas Trimmings Dies. You could even use our Red Rhinestones in place of the Cherry Cobbler die cut berries.
