Throughout the month of May buy three packs of Designer Series paper (including our Specialty Designer Series paper) or 12" x 12" textured card stock and get one FREE! We want to celebrate with you by sharing many wonderful ideas showcasing all of the designer series paper Stampin' Up! has to offer.

This is your 1st stop on the Parade of Papers and when you get to the end you'll be given the link for the 2nd fantastic stop, but don't stop there be sure to check out all 24 stops. You can find more info on the blog hop at Stampin' Addicts.

I have lots of projects to share with you using one of my favorite specialty papers Rockabilly! It's right up there with my favorite stamp set Just Jawing, which I also used!! This paper set has a special added touch to it in that it has a glossy finish.


The first one I want to share with you is little project I call a Flip Scrap Card.



This little beauty folds down to 5x6", a great size for a card but when you open it completely it is 5x12".




Each flap opens revealing another page. You can add pictures, quotes or journaling, it all depends on what you want to do. It may seem like it use a long of paper but it only took 1 sheet of DSP, and half a sheet each of colored cardstock.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Just Jawing; Cardstock - Rockabilly Specialty DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, and Whisper White, Basic Black; Ink - Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Versamark; Accessories - White Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Versamarker, Real Red Pen, Old Olive Pen, White Gel Pen, 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Scallop Punch, Scallop Border Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Handheld Circle Punch.

I wanted a fun boy/tween card and this one did just the trick.



It's bright and fun. The glossy DSP adds just the perfect touch giving it the Rock & Roll feel to it.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Just Jawing; Cardstock - Pacific Point, Rockabilly Specialty, Going Gray, Basic Black; Ink - Versamark; Accessories - White Embossing Powder, Black Embossing Powder, White Gel Pen, Star Punch, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon.


This next one is perfect way to spruce up those gift cards we give; especially for a teenager.


The belly band slips around to keep the gift card closed.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Just Jawing; Cardstock - Going Gray, Rockabilly Specialty; Ink - Riding Hood Red, Versamarker; Accessories - Basic Gray, Black Shrinky Dink, Black Eyelets, Glue Dots, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Slot Punch, Heat Gun, Glue Dots.

Next here's a girlie card ... as a matter of fact this is the one my Mom is getting for Mother's Day ... ssh don't tell her.



This one I actually had a hard time trying to get just the way I wanted but finally it all fit together.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Great Friend; Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Rockabilly Speciality, Whisper White; Ink - Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Versamarker; Accessories - White Embossing Powder, Pretties Kit, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots, Dimensionals.

My last project is this rockin' 6x6 scrapbook page.



I just love this skull and it works perfectly with this sheet from rockabilly! I want a more masculine eye so I punched the hearts out with the circle punch and layered behind it with basic black paper and added the kiwi kiss pupils with the handheld punch. To give him a bit of color I watercolored the bones to match the paper.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Just Jawing; Cardstock - Rockabilly Specialty, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Basic Black; Ink - Kiwi Kiss, Versamarker; Accessories - Black Embossing Powder, Black Eyelets, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionls, Aquapainter, 1/2" Circle Punch, 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch.

Can you believe after doing all of these projects I still had 9 full sheets, 2 2/3 sheets, and some scraps left over. These paper packs are a FANTASTIC value. If you've enjoyed the projects on this stop be sure to leave me a comment and enter your chance to win a sample of Rockabilly Specialty paper. Comments are now closed. I picked a name very scientifically and had my son pick a number from 1-90 and he picked 6. So Jyll email me and I'll send you the sample. Thank you everyone for playing a long with us!!

I'm glad you visited my stop on this Parade but don't forget to take the next stop and check out what Rhonda from The Stampin' Bunny has to share. In case you want to work the circle in the other direction check with Beth of Stamp Me a Rainbow, she's technically the last stop on our Parade. The Parade of Papers ends at midnight on May 10th so be sure you aren't left out .... Happy Stamping!!
