I’ll Miss Baja Breeze and the First Edition DSP

I needed to make a simple thank you card to put in the mail.  This card is a notecard sized card.  I still have some of my First Edition dsp that I covered with Gesso a while back.  I stamped the flower and sentiment directly on it (don’t forget to give it plenty of time to dry after stamping).

Thankful Bloom

I used a couple of my favorite retiring products on this card — Baja Breeze card stock and ink and the First Edition dsp.  I will really miss both of these.   However, after looking at the new catalog (which will go live on May 31), there are some beautiful new blues coming and there is a new background stamp that could be used to achieve a similar look as the dsp.  Whew!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Blooming with Kindness
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Paper:  Baja Breeze, First Edition dsp
Embellishments:  Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, Gesso

  1. Beautiful card. I. Am seeing “Gesso” a lot lately. What is it? A shellac? Why did you use it on your DSP?
    Love tour cards snd always look forward to them!

    • Hi Mary! Gesso is a painter’s product. It is an acrylic product used to prepare the painter’s surface. It can be found in the painting section of a hobby store. I used it on the newsprint dsp to just tone it down a bit. I wanted a more sublte newsprint background. I saw Shelly use it on a project at convention last summer (she used it on the pages of an old book). You can just brush a thin layer on your paper with a paintbrush. Hope this helps!

  2. Such a lovely card Amy! I’m going to miss Baja Breeze more than any other color they’ve ever retired. And I love the First Eddition dsp a bunch too. Sigh. This is such a simple card, yet so striking. Love the pop of cherry cobbler on here. So inspiring. Enjoy your Sunday.
