Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian Color Theory DSP Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, y’all – happy Haawwmp Day!  I hope you’ve had a chance to check out the video I did showing off the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog goodies that I got yesterday!  It was part of my Demonstrator-perk….perked up even more by the fact that I went to OnStage last weekend!  And boy was that a fun box to open!!  Didn’t get to see it?  Check it out right here! 🙂

My card today is a play on one that I remember seeing last week.  For some reason, the “paint chip” paper in the new Color Theory DSP Stack really just caught my eye – guess I need to work in a paint store!!  This is really cool paper, though…

A little tidbit…remember the bindings on the 6″ x 6″ paper stack?  That rubber stuff that held the papers together?  Well – its gone!!  Yeah!!  SU! listened to us griping and it’s gone!!

Anywho – I decided to make a clean and simple card with the Berry Burst “paint chip”.  I added some Artistically Asian – take a look-see:

I played along with the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch for this one:

I started with a piece of the Color Theory paper – in Berry Burst (the stack also features Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim) – and, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamped the Artistically Asian floral image in Basic Black Archival Ink.  I also added the sentiment in Basic Black.

I matted the panel on a piece of Basic Black card stock and then on a second mat of Berry Burst.  And – yep.  That was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used the same Artistically Asian image.  I inked it up in Berry Burst ink, stamped it off 4 times on my Grid Paper, then stamped it in the middle of a Whisper White panel.

I double matted the panel on Basic Black and Berry Burst and then SNAILd it into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

For the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I double-stamped the Artistically Asian image – first in full-strength Berry Burst and then in stamped-off-once Basic Black Archival Ink.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to ever-so-slightly offset the black image…

…and then I added another piece of the Berry Burst Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This one was so quick and easy, y’all – but I think it’s gorgeous!  And – you could do the same exact card on all four colors in the beautiful Color Theory DSP Stack!  Hope you like…and have just added this beautiful stack to your Wish List!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Finny had company overnight!

Our friend Paul came to visit – and Finn was….ecstatic!


He had a great time – even though it’s a LOT OF WORK!!

When Paul left about mid-morning. the Finn-ster crashed.  Hard.  He slept for an hour.


He was still tired when it was time to go get the mail.  Decided to ride.

With his dad.

Still keeping a sharp eye out for any danger – it’s Figment Season here in Georgia, after all.  Those boogers pop out from anywhere – and you really never know which direction they’re going to come from.

No rest for the weary-dog! 😉

  1. Well, I guess I better get a long sheet of paper going for my wish list! I love this dsp! If I got a dollar for every time I said, “No more dsp”, I’d be able to buy all the new dsp in this catalog! I haven’t watched your video yet but I saw others a couple of days ago so I know yours will be magnifique! Will Finn be n watch for stink bugs and love bugs? Have a great day!

  2. This looks pretty! I love all of the matting. At first I wasn’t sure about the “paint” paper, but I think it will grow on me, you surely made it look nice:)

    Presented a program last night so didn’t see the video live. Watched this morning. Great stuff!! Wouldn’t this card, one in each color, make a nice gift set for someone? Or maybe 2 of each color?
    Love the little crate in the video too.

    • Yep – that would be a perfect – and oh-so-quick-and-easy!! – gift! Thanks so much, Julie – glad you got to see all the new goodies! 🙂

  4. Beautiful card Mary! The clean design with that awesome paper is absolutely perfect!! 🙂

  5. Kathleen VanDeVeere

    This card is really outstanding!
    Paul probably didn’t know he was coming for a play date…bet he snored some too. Made Finn’s day, no doubt.

    • Paul’s got an Aussie, too, so he’s familiar with the ramped up energy level! He liked him a lot. Up to you to decipher who “He” and “Him” is – cuz it was mutual! Thanks much, Mom! 🙂

    What a pretty card, Mary. This paper is definitely on my wish list. I didn’t attend OnStage so I will have to wait until May to order.I watched your un-boxing video and am especially excited for all the new DSP! Thanks for doing that. – Ellie

    Wow! Really liked this card: ) Thanks for sharing.

  8. Beautiful take on the sketch!

  9. Awesome take on the sketch! LOVE it!
    Thanks for playing at CTS this week!

  10. Looking at this DSP, at first nothing comes to mind, I’m blank! Then I saw your card! A lighting flash and ideas starting pouring in! Thank you so much for jump starting my empty brain. A mind is a terrible thing to waste!!!!!!!!!!!! TFS!

  11. I’m glad your doing videos as well. I don’t know anything about the filming or sharing part, but, I would like to know how to send a video and make sure it has close captioning with it. I’m very hard of hearing. By having the CC, I can share all the fun and excitement that everyone else gets to experience. Thank you to everyone who uses CC and for those who don’t, maybe think about it? Us hard of hearing and deaf people would love it. Thank you Mary for letting me say my piece. I just hope other demonstrators and people who film will read this and at least consider Closed-Captioning (CC). Have a great day, you’ll!

    • Hmmmm. CC is something I need to research. Not sure it can be done with a Facebook Live video. I’ll see what I can find out, though! Thanks, Gloria! 😊
