July Thank You Cards

For my July customer Thank You cards, I wanted to try something different.  Many of my fellow Stampin Up Demonstrators were doing this of late....making their own DSP (Designer Series Paper).   I fancied having a go.   Using the stamp set Garden in Bloom, and various colours of ink....I stamped a piece of 8 1'2" x 11" white card stock.  

It was so relaxing, stamping randomly all over a clean crisp piece of card stock.  

Once I was finished, and happy with the colour combo, I used my paper trimmer to cut up the card stock into eight smaller pieces.

No real exact measurement, just something that would fit nicely on a Stampin Up notecard.  I love the notecards, they are such good value and the perfect size for many projects.

Each square of my DSP was then layered onto a piece of matching coloured card stock 1/8" larger and adhered to the notecard.   

I positioned the layered piece down and decorated with a sweet little Thanks sentiment using my oval punch and scalloped edge oval punch (sadly now both retired).    I really enjoyed making my own DSP and have some great ideas for other stamp sets and card layouts.
