Sweet Pea Trio


When I first received SU's new Sweet Pea Designer Paper pack, I thought, "What in the world am I going to do with some of these pages?"  If you're a scrapper, there are lots of cool pages for layouts.  If you're a cardmaker, you may think that those pages will just go to waste.  I wanted to make a few cards with those exact pages just to show my customers that with very few supplies, you can make some awesome cards with those pages. 

Basically, I just cut the portion of the 12x12 sheet that had the main focus on it, into a 4"x5 1/4" sheet, mounted it onto a coordinating color card and added a rub-on sentiment.  So let's look & see.  Here is a full sheet of DP:


I trimmed the corner down to the size I wanted, added a couple layers, a rub-on sentiment from Autumn Harvest, and faintly stamped a little silhouette from Pocket Silhouettes on the panel.  I added a Pumpkin Pie flower punched from the Boho Blossoms punched, stamped it in Craft White with the polka dots from IBBG and added a large brown brad for this quick effect:


Even easier is the next one: no stamping at all!  JUST a rub-on sentiment:


Oops, I lied.....I did line the interior of the card and stamped a tiny little bit:







Recognize that from the Trendy Trees set?



Finally, I did do this one up a little more with some heat embossing of the Medallion stamp and a little tag cut with the Modern Label punch and using the Teeny Tiny Wishes set:


You will get LOTS of use from this great DP---there are tons of coordinating patterns & prints....I can't wait to go make some more!  TFL!  Remember, if you'd like to create some projects like this, I can help you with any SU purchase you may care to make!  Just click on my link on the sidebar!
