Stampin’ Up! CTC Blog Hop – Holiday DSP

Hi All

Hello and welcome to this week’s CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop where we are taking inspiration from the DSP (Designer Series Paper – the pretty patterned paper) in the Holiday Catalogue.


Whether you’re joining the Hop here, or if you’ve hopped on over from the talented Alison Barclay – a big hello! Remember to click on through this week’s CTC crew to see plenty of inspirational projects that have the crew have come up with from one of the gorgeous DSPs in the catty – and there are quite a few! I’ve included a list of participants at the end of the post – but if you get lost anywhere – there’s a full list on the CTC Blog Hop Homepage

I had a hard time choosing which DSP to use, but when I saw the Merry Moments Stack of DSP, I thought of the cards with trees made from circles that were popular a few years ago.

There are four (4) different patterns included in the DSP stack – can you guess which one made me think of the trees of circles?


Here’s a closeup:


And here’s my card – always tricky getting foil and glitter paper to photograph well!


I decided I wanted a bright and sparkly card – do you think I achieved my goal?

Here’s a closeup to help you decide!

It was lots of fun – though a bit of a challenge to get my circles to fit the shape of the tree!

Hop on along to Judy May’s Blog to check out her amazing creation!


Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy all the other posts in the hop>

  1. Sorry – great card Jackie!!!

  2. Great card Judy, I agree with Jess that it probably takes more effort than you would first think to get the layout and balance of all the circles just right. Great work. Where did you get that little ornament stamp from? it’s so cute.
    Ps have done another of the envelope notecards for you with measurements as requested. – the new Link is at the bottom of my post for this blogshop : )

  3. Great card Judy. I had seen a similar one on Pinterest very recently so excited to see yours. You’ve done a fab job getting all that glimmer under control! I reckon these cards would be much haredr than they look – you’ve made it look easy!

    Definitely lots of sparkle, Jackie. I loved making these circle cards!

    Very clever – I love all the circles and glimmer paper. I’m with Monique…glimmer paper never lives up to the true real life beauty in photos.

  4. What a fantastic way to show off our specialty papers Jackie. I love the whole idea and design. Just stunning.

    I love your card with all the different textures, levels and colours! I wish glimmer paper photographed so that it looked as good as it does in person.

  5. Great use of the DSP with lots of colourful glimmer paper, and lots of circle punches.

    I love this card!
