I have had the Raspberry Tart DSP for awhile now and just didn't know what to do with it. My original idea was to use it for Valentine's day cards and I think the green in the paper was throwing me off, because I just couldn't get the Valentine's vibe from it. So, before I ruined all of the paper trying to force the V-day plan I set it aside and moved on. Well, every since then this paper has been on my mind. Part of the reason is that I bought two packs of it (thinking I would need plenty for the V-day cards I had in mind) and I didn't want this paper sitting unused and then before you know it no longer available in the SU book.....so it would be the dreaded OUTDATED DSP!

I've probably said this before about many other stamps sets, BUT this could be my FAVORITE set! Its called Petal Pizzazz 113417 page 90 in the SU IB&C. I just found a card made with this set on one of my favorite blog pages and forgive me, but I can't remember which one or I would love to make note of it. The card used this color scheme and I changed the design to make it my own. I can't wait to also use this set with pink, brown, and orange flowers too with the Sweet Always DSP. This particular card was made with the NEW Specialty DSP Sweet Slumber , which BTW is Textured, cover-weight card stock.......very fun to use!
The DSP (Designer Series Paper) used on this card is Green Tea and has been retired......that makes me quite sad. I really love this paper and wanted to use it up. In the current SU IB&C (Idea Book and Catalog) you will find a similar paper called Urban Garden that shares in this color scheme with the Baja Blue and Kiwi Kiss. So, you could easily convert this card by using Urban Garden and still get the same affect.

BIG SHOT MATERIALS LIST FOR BIGZ AND ORIGINALS DIES
The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine and Bigz and Originals dies. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials. As a rule of thumb, you can cut a material with your Big Shot machine and Bigz or Originals dies if you can cut it using your Craft & Paper Scissors.
This little card was created due to a request by my neighbor for a baby card. This little onsie idea has been around for awhile, but I put my own spin on it and this is what I came up with.
This is one of the Valentine's cards I made and sent out this year....Too cute huh?
