Today’s card was created using Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper, the stamp set, Framed Occasions, assorted Stampin’ Blends, Beautiful Shapes Dies and Stitched Rectangle Dies



I was looking through the Annual Catalog and saw a card on page 119 that I just loved. I kept wondering what stamp set was used on the card and then realized it was Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper! So I immediately grabbed my pack of paper and a handful of Stampin’ Blends and got to work!




I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock and adhered it to the front of the card. I used these same dies to cut a smaller rectangle out of a piece of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. I colored the Designer Series Paper using these Stampin’ Blends:

  • Sweet Sorbet
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Balmy Blue
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Daffodil Delight

At first I was using both my Light and Dark Blends in Sweet Sorbet and Granny Apple Green but realized I only needed to use the Light Blend. This design has dark areas that when you color them (with a “Light” Stampin’ Blend), it looks like you’re an expert with shading so there’s no need to use the Dark Blend, unless you want it to be even darker.




After I finished coloring, I adhered the piece to the Granny Apple Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Framed Occasions and then cut it out using the Beautiful Shapes Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. It was hard knowing where to put it because I didn’t want to cover up any of my coloring! To complete my card, I added five rhinestones to the front of the card.
