So happy to be joining an amazing group of demonstrators from around the world to share some of the great products from Stampin' Up! This month on              New at SU Blog Hop we are looking at the amazing                                 Designer Series Papers (DSP's)!  There are a lot on sale this month so be sure to check it out!!

Here's my card for this month's hop:

The DSP I am featuring is the most amazing Expressions in Ink 12x12! This paper is gorgeous! It has so much pretty gold running through it! I decided to use a "mosaic" or "grouting" technique because I've used this pack so much I have a ton of scraps! Some packs live on forever & some go very quickly! This is one of the latter! It's just too pretty to sit in a package!


This technique involves using the scraps & laying them randomly. First, I used some Adhesive Sheets to cover a piece of white cardstock, then attached the scraps to that. But the fun part is filling in the cracks! I used some Gilded Leafing to fill in the cracks. I've done this with Embossing Powder also, but the leafing really brings out the gold in the DSP!

Then for the flowers & leaves I used the coordinating                                   Artistically Inked Cling Stamp set & cut out with the also coordinating          Artistic Dies!

Didn't have any Pear Pizazz Ribbon so I used a Light Old Olive Stampin' Blend to color a piece of the
White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon
! Love that the Blends are so versatile!

So now hop over to Rochelle's blog & keep hopping around the world to see some great creations featuring our Designer Papers! Simply click on her name here or the icon below! The list of all our hoppers is at the end of this post, so be sure not to miss any!!!
