May Design it with DSP Blog Hop – Mosaic Mood Sneak Peek


Design it With Designer Series PaperWelcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.

Each month we will be featuring a different designer series paper and in May we are giving you a sneak peek of an about-to-be released DSP – the pretty Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper will be available to purchase from 4th June 2019 when the 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue goes live.

As we get ready for the release of a new catalogue, many of us Demonstrators participate in “swaps”. This is where we design a project,  make several of the design and swap them with others. It’s a great way to get a variety of projects. 

I am part of Jacque Williams’ wider team – the Creative Inkers – and at tomorrow’s team training day there are a couple of swaps we could sign up to – even if we are not attending in person – like me. So mine were posted off at the beginning of the week. 

Here’s my swap – featuring the products from the Mosaic Mood Suite – including the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.

Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP

I love this card fold as you get to enjoy both sides of the DSP. Check out the inside of the card.

As this paper is a heavy weight paper it is suitable to use as the card front without needing to be matted – so the pattern on the back is also visible!

The card base is another sneak peek – one of the new 2019-2021 InColors – Terracotta Tile.

I’ve also used that colour to stamp the leafy images on both the inside and outside of the card. I used just part of the large tree foliage image from the memorable Mosaic set to stamp these leafy patterns. I can imagine them in purple as wisteria! The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment.

I’ve stamped the sentiment twice – once in Garden Green on Whisper White and once on Blushing Bride in Terracotta Tile. The image on the Whisper White is punched out using the coordinating Timeless Label Punch, while the word “Kindness” has been fussy cut out of the Blushing Bride cardstock and then layered onto the Whisper White.

That thread behind the sentiment is from the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon. To get the threads, I cut a 20cm length of the ribbon, then cut it in half length-ways. I could then pull the threads free and put on the back of the sentiment.

The shiny surface of the sentiment was achieved using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I wrote over the word with the nib while gently squeezing the bottle. Be gentle or you will end up with large blobs of glue! The Fine Tip Glue dries clear and shiny – a perfect match for the Specialty DSP. You can see some of the shiny accents on the DSP in the photo below.

Mosaic Mood Specialty DSPI do love taking part in the swaps even if I can’t actually be at the training day in person. Here were some of my swaps ready to be put into the mailer earlier in the week.

I’ll be waiting excitedly for my Happy Mail to come back with everyone else’s swap projects.
