Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper in our projects. We’re featuring the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming DSP in October and I’m so pleased we are – Copper is my fav metallic – and that’s what is gleaming on this specialty paper

  • Sentiment is a piece of the coordinating Classic Weave Ribbon


  • On the inside of the card I used a couple of colouring techniques. Stampin’ Markers directly onto stamps for the sentiment

  • Inside self colouring (or maybe faux watercolouring) on the bauble. Here I stamped using a Classic Ink Pad and then used my blender pen directly on the stamped image to create a watercoloured look.

  • The DSP wraps around from the front to the inside, folds back on itself to form the pocket (thanks to Lisa LoPresti Curcio for the inspiration for the fold)
  • I did this card at my Technique Classes this month. There were several DSP pattern options. The card could be put together in Portrait or Landscape and with various layout options.
