Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Mine ended with a phenomenal Christian concert called Young Messiah. I had never heard of it before, but I love anything to do with Handel’s Messiah. Fun fact about me. I once joined a choir just so I could sing in this beautiful oratorio. Every minute of it was just wonderful and now I am listening to it on Spotify as I write this blog post. SEO analytics will tell me to put the key word in the first sentence, but I am rebelling a bit. The blog post today is about Winter Meadow, which is a stunning designer series paper from Stampin’Up!


Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper


Do you know why our patterned paper is called Designer Series Paper? It is because there are actually in house artists, or designers, that create this beautiful paper. It is often referred to by its shortform, dsp. Just one of the many things that give Stampin’Up! its own lingo. Newbies can be confounded with all the terminology including the two word colour names! My cards use primarily Bojo Blue, Misty Moonlight and Basic White. If you want to see how I made the card below, please check out this YouTube video.


Winter Meadow Sympathy card with Dutch sentiment from Autumn Wishes or Herfstwensen.


The card above uses the Dutch version of Autumn Wishes called Herfstwensen. I added a layer of torn vellum behind the Bojo Blue cardstock to soften up the patterned paper and also to symbolize the tearing away of a life, of a loved one. The pearls were coloured with Bojo Blue Blends, which is a great trick to coordinate your gems with your patterned paper or cardstock.

I also made this card using our lovely All Autumn Autumn paper which is now back in stock. You can see that video here. Here is a closeup of the card, just enough so you can see how beautiful the paper is.

I participated in a blog hop with the Dreamgirls Dutch team from Maaike deRidder-Sack. What an honour!! You can check out it below.


My Last Winter Meadow Card

This card was inspired by a card sample in the holiday mini catalog. You can find the card that inspired me on page 36, top left.


Winter Meadow paper with Regal Reindeer dies, Deckled Circle dies and Nested Essential Dies.


I forgot to add the Deckled Circle Dies and the Nested Essentials dies to the supply list but they are essential to the card above. Both are fantastic and highly recommended. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I still want to urge you to take advantage of the starter kit. It really is the BEST deal ever. You can put $165 worth of products in your kit and you pay only $135. NO shipping and no tax in most of the provinces. Super great deal. Plus you get to be on my team!! How amazing is that? No need to do what I do, that’s for sure.

Here you can see how the card above was made and also see each of the stamps and dies in the Magical Meadow bundle.




Thanks for joining me today, I really appreciate you! I hope that I have inspired you today. Happy stamping, and remember, together we CAN change the world, one card at a time. Hugs from Holland.
