Three Cards One Sketch - Dandy Designs DSP

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have three cards using one card sketch to share with you. I also used the Dandy Designs Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper on each of the cards, along with the A Grand Kid Stamp Set.

For the first card using the card sketch I added the sentiment on a strip of Basic White Cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink, and then colored the open letters with my Stampin' Blends. I used Fresh Freesia, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends for the coloring.

Here's a look at the card sketch that inspired today's cards.

For the second card I turned the card sketch on the side and used the same measurements and designer series paper. I changed the pattern of the DSP and changed up the card stock colors.

I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock. I also added an embossed layer of Fresh Freesia Cardstock. I used one of the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders to emboss the cardstock.

For the last card I used the Alphabet Al La Mode Dies to cut out the word Hey from the center of the designer series paper. I used Foam Adhesive Sheets to pop the letters up.
