Create and Play with Classic Garage DSP

Hey Friends!  Today's project is a challenge from my friend and leader of the STARS, Dawn Olchefske.  She sent several STARS a kit and told us to get creative!!   My kit contained pieces Classic Garage DSP, so I made a father's day card.  So perfect for my husband, he loves cars and travels around the country photographing races -- that is his hobby.

Classic Garage DSP 
Stampin' Up! (r)

 Measurements:
Basic Gray base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 
 Classic Garage DSP red layer 5 1/2 x 1
Classic Garage DSP oil can 5 x 3 3/4
Classic Garage DSP dark gray 1 x 4
Whisper White liner 5 1/2 x 4 
Ink:
Versa Mark
White Emboss Powder


Tip: Since some DSP is not very thick and I wanted to wrap the ribbon around this DSP and tie a knot I added a layer of cardstock.  This give the DSP more stability and keeps it from wrinkling or ripping if I tie the ribbon too tightly.

Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - Love It, Chop It!!


Hello friends!! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's training group blog hop for February 2019. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators working with Kylie from Australia to learn more about improving our Stampin' Up!! (r) businesses. Today I am embracing the Kylie's philosophy of "love it, chop it".  She has a point why buy DSP that is totally gorgeous, that you adore so much you hate to cut it up only to have it waste away in your stash.  Cut it up and share the love. I did and it was fun. Two pieces of Botanical Butterfly DSP made 24 fantastic cards.

  Measurements:
Highland Heather base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 
 Basic Black layer 3 1/8 x 4 1/8
Butterfly Gala DSP 3 x 4
Whisper White Sentiment 1 x 4
Whisper White liner 5 1/2 x 4 
Ink:
Memento Tuxedo Black

You can make this type of batch cards with any DSP.  So easy and quick, check out my process below. The best part of this is that Botanical Butterfly DSP is free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, so that make this batch of cards even sweeter.  


I use an assembly line process to create a big batch of cards. Here are my steps in this big process:
  • Cut DSP (two sheets 12 x 12) 3 x 4 
  • Cut Basic Black layer 3 1/8 x 4 1/8 
  • Cut Whisper White liner for inside card (I always add a liner)
  • Prep 24 card bases 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 
  • Gather Ribbon and any other embellishments
  • Cut 24 pieces of Whisper White 1 x 4, stamp with sentiment, punch Banner Triple Punch
  • Adhere DSP to Basic Black layer (all 24)
  • Adhere Whisper White liner inside card bases (all 24)
  • Tie ribbon onto DSP layer, add sentiment strip with Stampin Dimensional (all 24)
  • Use Multipurpose Glue to attach DSP layers to card base 
  • All done!! Time for pictures. 



Product List


Note: The Organdy Ribbon Combo pack from sale-A-Bration are no longer order-able due to higher than anticipated demand and are not listed in my supply list above.  Whisper White Sheer Ribbon #144172 would be a good substitute.
