This pack of New Horizons Designer Series Paper does all of the work for you. The possibilities are unlimited. You can stamp on it, or you can choose to simply adorn your card front with it. Below are four different cards I made using only one sheet from the pack. What do you think? 

Happy Birthday Horizon

Relax Horizon

Thinking of You Horizon

Thank You Horizon

   On the Horizon
   Best Year
   Grassy Grove

   Basic White A-2, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
   Basic Black 3-1/8" Sq.
   New Horizons DSP 3" Sq.

   Tuxedo Black Memento


   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Basic Pearl Jewels

First, I cut my 6x6 DSP sheet into 3" Squares.

I then stamped each of the squares. The trees on the Thank You card are from the Grassy Grove Stamp Set. All of the other images are from On the Horizon Stamp Set.

I matted the four squares using Basic Black and attached them with dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the sentiments. The birthday and thank you sentiments are from the Best Year Stamp Set. The others use On the Horizon Stamp Set.

Lastly, I added rhinestones or pearls to the card fronts and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of each card.

Textured Birthday

Dry emboss a panel of vellum and be amazed at the results. As the fibers are broken up by the embossing, the vellum turns white. I really like the look and feel that is created. What do you think? 

   Amazing Silhouettes
   Best Year

   Evening Evergreen A-2
   Vellum 5-1/4 x 4
   Soft Succulent 2-1/2 x 3-1/2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Evening Evergreen

   Dry Embossing

   Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder
   Genial Gems
   Stampin' Seal+

First, I dry embossed a vellum panel.

I then stamped my image and sentiment on a piece of Soft Succulent.

I adhered the stamped panel to the center of the vellum panel.

Next, I applied Stampin' Seal+ to the back of the vellum behind the Soft Succulent piece and added it to the card front. This will keep the marks left by the adhesive hidden from view.

Lastly, I added a few gems and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Valentine's Wish

 Valentine's Day reminds us to show and tell others how special they are to us. Sometimes we send flowers, chocolates or other small tokens of love. My question is: Why wait? Shout it TODAY! Thoughts?

   A Wish for Everything

   Pretty in Pink A-2
   Sending Love DSP 3-3/4 x 4-1/4
   Chocolate Chip 1/8 x 4-1/4 (2)
   Very Vanilla 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside), Scrap

   Real Red
   Chocolate Chip


   Heart Punch
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Real Red Candy Dots

First, I stamped, punched, and sponged the heart. I stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla and used Chocolate Chip and Real Red inks. You can easily switch to Early Espresso if you do not have Chocolate Chip, or choose another accent color.

Next, I adhered the Sending Love DSP onto the card front and added two Chocolate Chip strips to frame it.

I attached the heart using dimensionals and added a few Real Red Candy Dots and rhinestones. 

Lastly, I added the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card.

Valentine Hearts

Stamp and die cut your own hearts to place on your card. I like making my own valentine cards and sending them to my grandchildren. It is always nice to put a small package together for them. Surprises are always fun! Don't you think? What was the last surprise you received? How did you feel? Tell me about it. 

   Sweet Conversations

   Blushing Bride A-2, Scraps
   Sweet Talk DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside), Scraps
   Real Red 2-3/4" Sq., Scraps
   Highland Heather Scraps

   Blushing Bride
   Gorgeous Grape
   Highland Heather
   Real Red

   Die Cutting

   Sweet Hearts Dies
   Glue Dots

First, I took scraps of Basic White and stamped the words and outlines of the various hearts using Gorgeous Grape. I then stamped the inside fillers with Highland Heather and Blushing Bride.

Next, I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Basic White. I used my snips to cut it down to size. I added a Highland Heather matte from a scrap. I attached the sentiment using dimensionals.

I then die cut the various hearts. I used scraps of Blushing Bride, Real Red, and Highland Heather to cut the smaller hearts. 

I also die cut the small envelope and used a glue dot to hold the flaps closed. 

Lastly, I put the card together. The DSP was adhered first to the card front. I then arranged the various hearts and envelope. I used my liquid adhesive to hold them in place. I also added a couple of hearts around the sentiment. The Basic White panel was added to the inside of the card.
