Have you ever looked at all the awesome patterns on tissue boxes and thought, “Wow! That’s some great designer paper?” Me too! Now I’ve finally taken one of them and turned it into a couple of cards.

I cut out several of the squares and arranged them for a fun backdrop to the sentiment.

Because the patterned cardboard pieces are already quite thick, no dimensionals were needed to give the pieces a popped-up look.

On this second card, however, dimensionals were placed on the back of the right half of the image panel. Since the left half of the panel is resting on the cardboard, the dimensionals allows the panel to lay flat.

One of the squares is used as a Kleenex box!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week over at Splitcoaststampers, and this year they have opened up all the challenges to everyone!! This card is for one of the DTGD challenges as well as some of the other fun challenges around blogland.

No stamps or inks were used on this card. Instead this beautiful dove die does all the work. The sentiment was computer generated.

I placed tiny rhinestones in the centers of these cute little snowflake sequins.

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week over at Splitcoaststampers, and this year they have opened up all the challenges to everyone!! I decided not to host any challenges this year as I have one of my sons and his family visiting. But that doesn’t mean I won’t be playing along in some of the challenges!

After stamping and cutting out the beehive, I inked/distressed it around the edges. The negative cut piece was also distressed around the outside edge and the inside edge of the beehive negative. It was then stamped with the sentiments and a dotted background image. I used the honeycomb die as a stencil on the left and top of the piece as well. A honeycomb was also cut out, distressed and then adhered to the back of this piece with some of it peeking out. This was then popped up with dimensionals over the beehive which had been adhered to the yellow cardstock on the card base.

This was such a fun card to make, but in the end there may have been more ink on me than on the paper!

I recently purchased this beautiful designer paper with gold foil on several of the patterns. Was so happy to be able to play with it in combination with a stamp set that’s been around for awhile and really needed to see some ink.

Two different paper designs, one on the background and one on the flowers, are used. The background paper is also embossed as well as the dark green centers on the flowers.

From card base to the flower centers the card has 7 layers. It’s been awhile since I’ve done that, and it was really FUN!
