Technique Spotlight: Double Time Designer Series Paper

Yes, I made up this term for the "technique," but that's because it's so similar to the Double Time Stamping technique I shared earlier this week. And honestly, it's soooo easy that when I resurrected it, I started to wonder why I haven't used it in awhile. It's simple. Cut a shape out of a piece of Designer Series paper, then layer that shape onto a larger piece of coordinating cardstock before adhering it back into place, lining up the images with the cardstock layer in between. In this case, I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece out of the middle of the Designer Series Paper.

After measuring the size of the cut-out rectangle, I cut a piece of Garden Green cardstock 1/4" bigger on both sides, then layered the two together before putting it back into place on the card base.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) I used here is the Day at the Farm, which you can choose free with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration, which ends February 28. The best part of this DSP is that it coordinates with the On the Farm bundle in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

I love how some of the dies cut out images of the DSP.

I used the DSP to create this fun fold card, and I honestly can't stand how cute it is! :)

On this one, I cut out the flower and the sheep right from the DSP using the dies. The inside Basic White piece that pulls out measures 8" x 5 1/4" and is scored at 4" and 6."

Why make one fun fold card with this cute farm product when you can make two? This one uses the DSP background, then the stamps and dies for the barn, silo, and trees.

The Garden Green card base measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and is scored at 3" and 7 1/4."

Like what you see? You can find all the products used on all three cards, along with links to those products in my online store at the bottom of this blog post. The On the Farm bundle (stamp set and dies) is $51.25, which means you can choose the DSP for free, if you wish.

Happy creating!
