You may have noticed that I like diagonal designs on projects. I also love using DSP to create diagonal stripes.
Here is a card using three brightest colours from the In Color DSP. It’s a version of this previous project. I like how using a different Designer Series Paper changes the look and feel of a project.
Using a Whisper White base card and Magenta Madness as the accent colour, really makes it pop.
As making these projects doesn’t use much DSP, they are a great way for using up your scraps. Use your Paper Trimmer to cut strips to the width you require, and then start building your pattern. You don’t have to do diagonal stripes!
My pattern starts with a thin strip of the DSP along the diagonal. I’ve then butted the other pieces up to it, one colour at a time, using different sides of the DSP.
The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and I stamped this onto my piece after I’d stuck down the strips. Top tip, don’t do this! Stamp your sentiment first incase it doesn’t go quite right, as you can always turn it 180 and stick the strips over it. Alternatively, stamp your sentiment onto a separate piece and stick it on afterwards.
Finally, I added a cute little co-ordinating flat (Dior) bow in the In Color Ribbon.
These really don’t take long to do and you can make quite a lot of projects from just a few strips of DSP. Why not try one or two and mix and match your DSP.
I’d love to see your finished projects.
