NASS - Not a Single Stamp - the magic of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

Everyone feels a little uncreative sometimes. Maybe you think you don't have enough products to really make a WOW card. Well you probably do! These cards used four things:

a pack of Designer Series Paper
Snail adhesive
Paper cutter

Yep, that's it! Well, I did use a little red glitter glue and a punch on one, but you sure don't have to! If you do have other things to 'kick it up a notch' you can, but the simplicity of these cards really bring out the patterns and colors. Plus they are quick, just right for holiday cards you can mail  out ON TIME this year right? Not that I've ever done that, *cough*.

STAMPS: none!

INK: none!

1. Trim your 8 1/2" x 11" paper in half to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score each half of paper at 4 1/4".

2. Cut DSP main image such as the owl and mittens. Measure those. Cut two layers of DSP pattern a minimum of 1/4" larger on each side than that main image for layering. Some of my layers are 1/4" larger, some are 1/2" larger, some are just eyeballed!

3. Adhere all DSP in the layers you want with Snail.

4. Bling if you want to!
