My favorite project that I made for my presentation at OnStage in Hartford was my 12 x 12 sampler using a bit of everything from the entire suite. I guess you like it too as I have received so many emails and comments asking for close up pictures and a template to download. So here you go!! If you have any questions, please send me an email!
For the Eiffel Tower I stamped the image from Parisian Beauty on Champagne foil paper with VersaMark then thermal embossed with black embossing powder. I then used the coordinating die to cut it out. The base of this panel was Champagne foil and I added the Parisian Blossoms DSP on top. The paper it is Petal Pink and the script is in Champagne foil, so beautiful! I attached the image with mini dimensionals and stamped “Amour” in memento black on Whisper White and punched it out with my Classic Label punch, I mounted in on Champagne foil and trimmed. This was also attached with mini dimensionals.
This floral spray from Forever Blossoms was done the same way as the Eiffel Tower. I really love how the black contrasts with the shiny foil it really makes the image stand out. For the saying I stamped “Love” on Whisper White and used the Stitched Shapes to cut it out, then mounted it on a piece of Champagne foil cut from Layering Ovals. Both were attached using mini dimensionals.
On the center panel I stamped the flowers in Memento Black and colored with Dark & Light Pool Party and Old Olive Blends then cut them out with the matching dies. I used the Petal Pink Satin Ribbon with Champagne metallic edging behind the saying and added a few Champagne Rhinestones.
For the remaining panels I wanted to use as much of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper as I could, adding accents of the smaller flowers, rhinestones and ribbon. The new Label Me Lovely punch was used on two of the sayings. This punch is not part of the Suite but will be in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog (available January 3, 2020).
I came up with the design by starting in the middle with a large square and then built off that. I wanted something a bit different from the usual squares and to show the beautiful suite and how all the products coordinate so beautifully together. Feel free to download the template below to use in your own projects.
This sampler was made with my son Michael and his fiance Jen in mind. They are getting married next October and it would make a perfect gift for a special couple. I hope this inspires you to make your own samplers to celebrate someone special to you!

One of my favorites, Magnolia Lane, is included in this sale.
When I was growing up my mother had the most gorgeous magnolia tree in the yard. I always loved how it would blossom in the spring with the delicate pink and white blooms. She has been gone eighteen years now but when I saw the Magnolia Lane Suite in the catalog it instantly brought back those fond memories and it was number one on my wish list.
The suite consists of; the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, Magnolia Memory Dies, Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder, Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More cards and envelopes, the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack, Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack, Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments, and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends combo pack.
All these items can be purchased separately, the stamp set and dies as a bundle (save 10%) or new this year get the entire suite with just one item number and still save 10% on the stamp set and dies!
I used a Basic Black card base. Along the right side of the Petal Pink panel, I stamped the magnolia bud using Petal Pink ink to create a tone on tone effect. Then I layered a piece of DSP on the left and wrapped a piece of Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon across the middle securing in the back. The saying is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink then cut out using a Stitched Oval die and three little pears are added to the middle. It is attached to the card front using dimensionals. The blooms on the DSP paper used, can be cut from one of the coordinating dies.
For this card I stamped the magnolia bud using Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored it with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Blends and cut out with the matching die. I stamped the saying on Whisper White with Mossy Meadow and cut it and a Petal Pink piece out using the Stitched Nested Labels. The card base is Petal Pink with a layer of Mossy Meadow and a piece of DSP. This time I ran the ribbon vertically and attached to the card base. Then then attach the bud on top of the saying then to the card base with dimensionals.
This was a fun card because I love to color! The large bloom was stamped with Memento ink on Whisper White and then colored with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Blends. I ran a panel of Petal Pink through the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder to create some texture. On the bottom a piece of beautiful striped DSP. And yup I used the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon again, can you tell I love this ribbon??? The saying was stamped using Mossy Meadow ink, cut with a Stitched oval die and a few pearl accents were added. The flower and saying were attached to the card front with dimensionals.
This is my favorite, a fun bridge card! The card base is Petal Pink with a Mossy Meadow bridge. The two outer panels have floral DSP with striped DSP on the the two inner panels. The bloom is colored with blends and the sayings are stamped with Mossy Meadow.
To assemble the card, after attaching all DSP and center panels fold the card over as shown. Attach the assembled bridge to the two outer panels only so when opens it creates that 3D look but folds flat for the envelope!
I hope these projects have inspired you to use Designer Series Paper in your own projects!
Don’t forget the sale ends on Monday September 30th!
