Retirement Rewind #8: Everyday Enchantment DSP

Hey Stampers,

Happy Friday !! And it is time for another edition of my Retirement Rewind Series !! This one is #8 and focuses on the FABULOUS DSP from last year's Saleabration, Everyday Enchantment. These papers were a HUGE hit last year ... I loved them and everyone else I know did too !! Such beautiful colors and patterns, super vintage and fun. I also got to dust of a couple of my favorite retired In Colors, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade ! I was scanning the inter-webs and found the inspiration for this beautiful card trio over on Victoria's blog - www.bluejellystampin.blogspot.com. Her post was from LAST March, but I loved her design so I CASEd it !! I paired the beautiful DSP with the Beautiful Wings embosslit and love what came together !! Take a look ...


Aren't they stunning ?? And so quick and easy. This would be a great layout to duplicate with any DSP pack and even some butterfly or flower punches !! And my elegant sentiment is also from an item from last year's SAB, Elementary Elegance. But any sentiment would fit in well here !! Birthday, thank you, thinking of you ... The possibilities are endless ! Now lets take a closer look at the cards !


Here is the Peach Parfait one. My standard Whisper White card base was embossed on the bottom half with the Finial Press embossing folder (also retired) and then a 2-1/2"by 4-1/4" strip of the DSP was layered on a Peach Parfait piece of cardstock (1/4" wider) and adhered to the card. The sentiment was stamped in peach Parfait ink, and then some Peach Parfait butterflies (with some blingy Rhinestones) finished it off. So simple !!


Here is the Poppy Parade version. The only difference here other than the colors, is that I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for this card base. Doesn't that Poppy Parade just POP ?!?! I really miss this color and would LOVE to see it return ! And this pattern of the DSP was my favorite from this pack. Love that gorgeous pattern !


And lastly, the Pool Party card. Here I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder. Love that delicious texture !! 

Well, thats the cards for today !! One lucky lady at my March Stamp Club next week will get these cards along with some of this great DSP as a door prize ! Wouldn't you like to join us ?? Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!

  2. Hi Catherine, I absolutely fell in love with that DSP when it came out last SAB. My customers loved it as well---more so than they like this year's. I've kept a stash for myself and use it because it's simply so pretty and fun to use. Love your cards!
