“Lovely You” DIY DSP

Hello there!  Today’s project has been sitting on my craft desk half done for almost 6 months.  Sometimes I can get easily distracted by the latest and the greatest that I forget about older products that I still enjoy crafting with. I already had the backgrounds stamped on 8 1/2 x 11 Basic White card stock and just needed to create some cards…

If you enjoy a lot of stamping, this is the project for you.  The Lovely You stamp set was perfect as it had just the right size images.


The hardest part was deciding on the color combinations.  I’m sure I could have come up with a dozen more!  By stamping a full sheet of each color combination, I still have extra to create more cards.
