Tip of the Week Coordinating Colors with DSP

Did you know that the label on the back of the Designer Series Paper package lists the colors that coordinate with the DSP? There’s usually a coordinating Cardstock pack but you can just look at the label to see what colors to use.

For the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, you’ll see that it coordinates with Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White. Stampin’ Up! took the guesswork out of it for us.


One the the best things about Stampin’ Up! is that everything coordinates; cardstock, DSP, ribbon, ink, markers, etc.

Here’s a simple card that I made using the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. The DSP really makes the card. A piece of the Glimmer Paper, ribbon and sentiment and its a beautiful card.
