Welcome to today’s DSP Episode #23 A Handmade Card using Stampin’ Blends
Hello everyone and welcome to another blog post. Today is DSP #23 a Handmade Card using Stampin’ Blends. Today’s project uses some of our peaceful poppies suite consumables namely our lovely designer series papers.
The Stampin’ Blend choice colours I chose today are Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss light and dark. The co-ordinating green for this suite is mossy meadow, but as I don’t have blends in that shade, I compromised with Old Olive which goes very well too.
In this suite are various lovely poppy elements and I decided to use the velum embossed elements. By using an alternative use of the elements by colouring them with my Stampin’ Blends too, I made the card even more co-ordinating.
The colouring of some basic pearl jewel embellishments with the blends also finished the card off nicely.
Blackberry bliss is the card base colour choice today, with a matt layer in mossy meadow.
The finishing touches of the co-ordinating sentiment’s stamp set really finishes this card off. My Mossy Meadow ink pad is needing re-inked so I’ve remembered to add one to my next order.
I made use of a little scrap piece that was left over from the DSP to add extra layers inside my card.

You can join me at 7am UK time for crafty chat via my youtube tutorial (link below) premiere. Simply click on the link and set yourself a reminder 🙂
Start off by cutting a piece of blackberry bliss cardstock and folding in half for your card base.
For the matt layer make sure this measures 3 7/8 x 5 3/4 and adhere to card base.
Add your DSP which should measure 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere to card.
Cut a piece of your remaining DSP and use reverse print. This is to measure 3 3/4″ x whatever height you wish. Cut a piece of whsiper white 1/8″ or 1/4″ smaller in height. Stamp chosen sentiment to left side and adhere to your card.
Colour your peaceful poppies velum elements in chosen colour and also adhere to card. Colour some pearl jewels too and add these where you feel they would look nice.
