DSP Inspiration...

I have an incredible stamping friend across the waters... Kylie Bertucci.  She started this lovely hashtag movement called #loveitchopit one day last year on one of her Facebook Live videos and first posted about the hashtag here.  It’s a wonderful idea because so many of us stampers fall in love with Designer Series Paper (DSP), buy it and, for some reason or other, don’t use it as soon as we buy it like she does. 😉

I was inspired by a simple, elegant card last month by the incredible Susan Itell and just had to CAS(e) her card especially since it was a #loveitchopit card!

And while I was busy chopping... I made MORE cards.

It took no time at all to create these cards, once I got started.  I just had to CHOP the paper!  You might even notice something else...  I colored some ribbon with my Stampin' Blends to coordinate with the cards, too!  This was an idea from the amazing Patty Bennett and I wish I had taken a picture of me coloring my ribbons like she did!

I hope these cards have inspired you to get creative with your DSP and just not use it for 3D projects or scrapbooking!

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!
Have a blessed day!
