What I love most about Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers is that they do all the work for you. 

They give you an instant design as well as tell you exactly what colors of card stock and ink to use with them. (Seriously, look on the back of the pack. They tell you the coordinating colors right there.)

Some of the Specialty papers even include a little glitter and shine!

Plus there are so many great techniques that you can use with them.

Today I’ve got a super fun yet quick & easy Spotlight Technique for you to try with your Designer Series Papers (or any other pretty papers you’ve got on hand)…

Watch the video above to see how easy it is to create this fun Spotlight look with your Layering Square Dies

Of course you could also try to fussy cut out a square with your paper cutter but trust me when I say the square dies make it SO EASY!!

If you don’t have a Big Shot yet, it’s time to invest. 

A few cranks of a handle and you can have beautifully embossed designs and fancy cut-outs.

Here are a few of the Spotlight Technique cards I’ve made…
