Stampin’ Up! Affectionately Yours DSP for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Logo for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

It’s that time again! Time for another Inkin’ Krew blog hop. This month we are creating projects for Mother’s Day or a feminine card. I’ve chosen to feature the specialty designer series paper Affectionately Yours. This DSP is truly magnificent but, sadly, will not be available from Stampin’ Up! after May 31st, 2017.

Completed greeting card with a Night of Navy card stock base trimmed with a piece of colorful flowers from the Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper.

The specialty designer series paper Affectionately Yours is truly magnificent and, sadly, will not be available from Stampin’ Up! after May 31st, 2017. The sentiment is the only “stamping” on this particular card, making this a very quick and easy creation. The sentiment, “Hoping Your Day IS Perfect,” is versatile and the hand written interior message can pin point the occasion—birthday, thank-you, etc., or can easily be used to send a simple note.

As usual, I started my project by cutting out the card stock (please see measurements near the end of this post.

Night of Navy card stock, card base, torn.

The base of the card is Night of Navy with a landscape orientation. Beginning about one-third of the way from the top, I tore the paper to produce the ragged look.

gold ribbon on card with Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper adhered below the tear line on the base card.Next I wrapped the 1/8″ On-Trend Gold Ribbon and tied a bow on the top part of the Night of Navy card front. The piece of Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper was then adhered with SNAIL to the front of the card beneath the Night of Navy.


Sentiment, "Hopping Your Day is Perfect embossed in gold with circular die placed on the Daffodil Delight card stock for cutting


I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a scrap of Daffodil Delight card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heat embossed it. The sentiment was then cut our with a circle from the Stitched Frames framelits dies.


The sentiment was adhered to the front of the card using dimensionals.

A piece of the dark Affectionately Yours Washi Tape was placed near the bottom of the interior message panel of the card.

You’ll find a complete list of supplies for this project, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.

  1. You had me fooled…I thought you tore the DSP. Great job…pretty card. This particular piece of DSP I haven’t used yet. Couldn’t figure out what to do with it. Thank you for the idea!
