6×6 Crafting Hacks – See Both Sides of Stampin’ Up!®’s NEW Mediterranean Blooms DSP + Citrus


Lovely new papers make for such fun card bases – even when they’re Faux Card Bases, like with today’s orange-y Citrus Blooms stamp set feature and the pretty Mediterranean Blooms DSP. This card uses a 6×6 crafting hack to make it look like there’s more DSP involved – but really a 6×6 piece is perfect (not a coincidence that you have only couple of days left to sign up for the LovenStamps Paper Share!


To make this DSP feature card, cut a 6×6 DSP layer down to 4″ wide and score at the top to make a 3/4″ flap. Cut the inside white layer to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stack the pieces on a regular 1/4 sheet card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). Decorate with the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossed greetings and a dotted circle from the Everyday Moments Dies for a set of really quick (and beautiful) cards.


This card is SO easy to create – you’ll want to make it over and over again with new 6×6 DSP selections. Need a few more papers and coordinating cardstock?? I’ve got the perfect solution – it’s like 91 cards in a single package! The ‘back by popular demand’ LovenStamps DSP Paper Share for the new catalog is open for signups for a few more days! (Includes Ready-to-Stamp Card Bases like the one shown in the project today.)
