Wednesday Trends -- Custom DP

Hello there, it's Maki. Welcome to my Wednesday Trends!! One of my favorite things to do with stamping is making my own custom designer paper. With just a little time of effort, you can make one of kind beautiful designs!! Do you already own so many designer papers that are needed to be used?? No problem! Look at the card above -- I stamped the images from Treemendous set around the edge of the specialty paper and then sponged the chalk ink around the same edge to make it distressed. I usually pick subtle and monochromatic colored designer papers so that the stamped images are shown well.

Here are a couple more samples I made a while ago.

[card 1]
Stamps: Treemendous (TSG)
Paper: Specialty DPs, kraft cardstock
Ink: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, VersaMagic aegean blue, aspen mist
Accessories: ribbon, dew drops
, white gel pen
Tools: border punch
