Design It With DSP - Blog Hop - Tranquil Textures


Welcome to the Design It With Designer Series Paper Blog Hop! 

I am excited to share projects with you created by Demonstrator friends around the world. This month we are all using the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin' Up!

I am honoured to be a part of this Design Team and love that we get this opportunity to inspire you with awesome projects all using the same DSP! Make sure you check out all the Blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy all of the wonderful projects :o)



The Tranquil Textures DSP comes in a 12" x 12" pack of 12 sheets. You get 2 each of 6 double sided designs.

Today's project is a Shaker card using the Floral Frames stamp set and coordinating Foliage Frame framelits dies .... 


This stamp set is beautiful. I admit I'm push over for anything with flowers, so there was no way I would be able to resist the gorgeous frames in this set :o)

I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink because I was orininally going to use the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers for the colouring. However, I changed my mind because I was struggling to match the available Blends colours to this DSP. I watercoloured everything in the end and the Memento ink was absolutely fine with it - who knew eh? I stuck with the same ink for my Video too, I liked the muted Black for this card instead of the intense Black Stazon gives you :o)


The sentiment was stamped with Black ink and heat embossed using Clear powder.

The Night of Navy Scalloped edge on top of the DSP mat was created using the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I love that you can use either edge to this punch out!

Here is the Video Tutorial:

Pressed Flowers - Birthday


Pressed Flowers is one of the current Host stamp sets available in the Annual Catalogue. 

I love this set and all the floral images in it. I used the three smaller ones to create the stamped panel on this card. 


The stamp set doesn't have any sentiments with it, so I pulled in one from the Detailed With Love set to create a Birthday card :o)

The small cardstock banners on the right were put through the Big Shot with embossing folders just to add a little texture.
