Winter Frost Inspiration

I love that Stampin' Up! brings out several designer series papers (DSP) in different colours & styles for Christmas. This year they have 2 different sets of DSP, one is Seasons of Style which has the traditional red, green & brown colours in it, and then there is Winter Frost!! This is my favourite set this year. It is silver/grey, aqua/turquoise. The DSP comes in a pack of 12 double sided sheets and they are 12" x 12". Something I love is that they also have the option of a Paper Stack, with both DSP's. It comes in a little rip off pack which is 11.4 x 16.5cm (perfect size for card fronts).

I asked my on Facebook page recently which was everyone's favourite DSP this year, and the clear winner was the 12" x 12" Winter Frost DSP. I too love it and have been starting to experiment with it. 

Project recipe below.

This is the card that we made at Ronda's Christmas Workshop a few Saturdays ago. I love it. Such a lovely combo of colours but as usual, the beautiful DSP is doing all the work here! I have used strips from the Winter Frost Paper Stack for this card. 

When I punched out the ornament from the gorgeous glimmer paper I couldn't throw it out. It is just too pretty and it seemed such a waste. 

Project recipe below.

So I made a matching envelope!!! How sweet does that look? I am loving it.

And here is my second card using this beautiful DSP. I CASE'd this card from the Holiday Catalogue, but did change it up a little and used what I had. I can't decide which card I like better, though. They are both so pretty, and so my style of card.
