The Latte Girls are bringing you a blog hop which has a focus on Retiring DSP. Now it could be their favourite or some they have pieces left of, like me. I don’t have a lot of D.S.P. left from the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, which means I must have used it. Right?
I just love the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (D.S.P.). As it is all black and white designs it lends itself to so many different techniques.
I made a Large Gift Bag measuring 12″ x 12″ or 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm using the Gift Bag Punch Board. When I’d finished that I used the scoring tool on my trimmer to score down 2″ or 5 cm across the top. This piece formed the cuff and I then used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make the holes for the ribbon.
Before putting the bag together, I used a sponge brayer and berry Burst ink to add colour all over the ‘dotted’ side of the bag. Then the bag was put together with Tear & Tape Adhesive the ribbon threaded through and a Berry Burst bow added.
I then needed a card to go with my bag and I had a small piece of DSP which did the trick. I had just enough for the triangle if it was backed on something, so I backed it on Basic Black.
This close up of the images shows where I have coloured with sponge daubers, the flower image. Patty Bennett shared that trick and it works a treat. Just ink up your Sponge Dauber and with a light touch, swirl the colour on and then go back over the parts you want to be darker.
Of course you can’t have a naked card insert and envelope, can you? I’ve used the dotted image from the set and Berry Burst ink to stamp on the insert and the front and back of the envelope. I think it just finishes the card off and shows you’ve put a bit more thought into it.
