Suite Showcase 16 - Delightfully Eclectic Adhesive-Backed sequins

Hello, hello! How are you?  

Today, I'm sharing with you the latest Suite Showcase - Delightfully Eclectic. This is a showcase with a difference, because the only thing in this 'suite' is the designer series paper. It's a whopper of a pack - 48 pages in total, all double sided with all sorts of themes and patterns that are all 12" x 12". That means it will pretty much go with whatever you already have in your stash.

In my first card, I chose two different types of DSP from the pack and cut them to fit the Night of Navy standard card base, trimming to ensure it left a slight border on all 4 sides.

I did something, I don't normally do and glued the dsp pieces direct to the card base.

From scraps of Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and  Bubble Bath, I die cut some foliage from the Timeless Arrangements set. I used the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the second largest circle from Basic White as well as a banner for the sentiment, which I stamped in Night of Navy.

I made a faux bow using the Gold and Vanilla ribbon and adhered this to the front of the card.

The foliage pieces I die cut, I layered together and adhered to the back of the banner. I felt that the card needed something else, so from the alternative side of the dsp, I trimmed a piece to glue between the banner and the die cut circle.

To complete the card, I added some Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

For my second card, I selected a piece of floral dsp and cut to a standard matting layer size of 14cm by 9.7cm. On the long side, at 7.2cm, I made a cut 5cm in from the side and folded the corners back. I layered this piece of dsp onto a slightly smaller piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped a sentiment from Timeless Arrangements in the opening and added some stamped flowers, coloured using my blends pens in light and dark Bubble Bath and Berry Burst. Both of these were added to a layer of Bubble Bath cardstock.


These were adhered to a standard size card base in Garden Green. To hide the point of the dsp fold, I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Charming Sentiments set and I fussy cut this out (although there are dies available). I added some foliage from Timeless Arrangements in Bubble Bath and Garden Green. The card was completed with white Bakers Twine and some pastel sequin gems.

For my third and final card, I used a Fresh Freesia standard card base that matches the sheet of dsp I chose.  Again, I did something I don't normally do and cut a layer (also from Fresh Freesia) the same size as the card front. This was then embossed using the floral embossing folder from the Basics 3d Embossing Folder pack. 

To add some definition between the embossed layer and the dsp, from Basic White, I die cut an edge strip using the Basics Borders dies and attached this to the back of the dsp layer. To cover the join, I added a strip of Black and White Gingham ribbon. I adhered all these layers to the card base.

Again, I selected a sentiment from the Charming Sentiments set and white heat embossed this on Basic Black cardstock, which I then die cut using the second largest circle from Stylish Shapes dies. I decided, I needed to add some more dimension and so chose to die cut some flowers and foliage from the Timeless Charm set, all from Basic White. I created a faux bow from the gingham ribbon and laid this directly to the card front. I added the sentiment on dimensionals and then tucked the flowers and foliage around the circle. Then to complete the card, I added some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

This is such a big pack of dsp, it feels never ending and the possibilities are endless. I think I might be making some gift bags from this dsp in the near future.

What do you think? Which one is your favourite? Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love purple, so you can guess which one is my favourite.
