I think the Hand-Penned Suite is the set of products I have used the most from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is so pretty and the patterns mix and match so beautifully. Another thing I really like is that it is an easy set to do Two-Step stamping. Why? You do not have to line things up perfectly for it to look great.
This is one of my favorite go to layouts.
- Pale Papaya CS 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2", 3-1/4" x 4", 3" x 3" (scalloped circle)
- Basic White CS 4" x 5-1/4" (inside of the card), 3" x 3" (circle), 3-1/4" x 4" (flower bouquet)
- Hand-Penned DSP pattern A-4" x 5-1/4", pattern B 3" x 3-7/8" cut into 3 panels measuring 1" x 3-7/8"
- Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon
Adhere pattern A DSP to the front of the card base.
Adhere pattern B DSP to the 3-1/4" x 4" Pale Papaya CS. Wrap and tie a bow with the Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon.
Adhere to the card base.
Stamp the flower bouquet using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the 3-1/4" x 4" Basic White CS. Color the flowers using Blushing Bride, Pale Papaya ink and the leaves using Mint Macaron ink.
Die cut the Basic White circle and the Pale Papaya Scalloped circle (Layering Circle dies). Attach the bouquet to the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals. Adhere to the card base.
Attach Genial Gems to the centers of the flowers.
Adhere the 4" x 5-1/4" Basic White CS to the inside of the card.
I always like to add something to the inside of the card. Sometimes I stamp something, add a die cut or at the very minimum I add a strip of DSP.
Hope you will use this layout. It is an easy way to show off both sides of the pretty paper. Starting July 1 there will be 9 DSP packs that will be 15% off and yes, Hand Penned is one of them! It will be a great time to add some new pretty paper. Stay tuned for all the details!
Thanks for stopping by!
