I’m back with another one of Laura’s Quick Tips!!! This one might sound obvious but I know I tend to forget!!! Punch your DSP (Designer Series Paper)….or die cut or fussy cut!!! Stampin’ Up creates beautiful paper and there are so many ways to use it!!!
I tend to use Designer Series Paper for backgrounds, layering, or a decorative piece along the side. Stampin’ Up creates so gorgeous paper with images that are so hard to cut into pieces. So instead, punch your DSP!!! Get out those punches, die cuts, or even scissors. I’m not a huge fan of fussy cutting…except for this card!!!! I do love grabbing a punch quickly and going to town creating beautiful focal points for my cards.
These birdies are from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch is perfect. You can punch out blue, yellow, or gray birdies for your project. The ones on the edge can be punched/die cut with a label for the edge of your card too! There are so many possibilities!!! Check out the supplies below to get your hands on these and have fun punching out DSP!!!
