#simplestamping   On Saturdays, I will continue to showcase simple stamping projects that include primarily Stamps, Ink and Paper.  This week I want to share projects using designer series paper.  We all have our favorite designer series paper that we are afraid to cut into.  For todays projects, I want to show you that cutting your designer series papers into 3″ x 4″ pieces are a quick and simple way to #loveitchopit.  When you cut your designer series paper into these 3″ x 4″ pieces, you get 12 good sized pieces from 1 12″ x 12″ piece of designer series paper.

For these projects I used the free Botanical Butterfly designer series paper that you can get during Sale-a-Bration.  This whimsical paper is a butterfly lover’s dream, with both colored and black-and-white imagery that can be colored or embellished.   Colors include;  Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.

Belated Birthday, #simplestamping, Botanical Butterfly, Itty Bitty Birthday, Stampin' Up!

I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  For the greeting, I added a Whisper White strip 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.  As you can see, I simply added a Basic Black cardstock layer behind the 3″ x 4″ Designer Series Paper.  I chose a cardstock color – Highland Heather from a color in the designer series paper.

Happy Birthday, #simplestamping, Botanical Butterfly, Itty Bitty Birthday, Stampin' Up!

For this card, I used a 1/2″ x 3″ strip of Balmy Blue Designer Series Paper.   I added a 1 1/4″ circle punch behind the greeting to help the greeting stand out a bit.  What a simple but gorgeous card.  The Botanical Butterfly designer series paper really makes the card go from plain to spectacular.  #simplestamping  Stamps, Ink & Paper

Butterfly Gala, #simplestamping, Botanical Butterfly, Butterfly Gala, Stampin' Up!The Occasions catalog has several butterfly stamp sets.  I wanted to see how they would coordinate with the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper.  The verdict is – great coordination.  But since I was working on #simplestamping today, I chose a greeting from the Butterfly Gala.   I did add a little Adhesive Backed Sequin for just a little added pizzazz.
