Default DSP suggestions please!

Hi there...

I'm new to card making and would like to expand my collection of designer paper because a lot of my cards are starting to look similar. Most of the DSP I have is from Stampin' Up (the subtles stack and paisley petals). I also bought a package of K&Company DSP online but the patterns are a bit too big to use for cards soooo...

Hoping some of you have good recommendations for other companies that carry designer paper suitable for cards?? Thanks!

I love Jillibean soup 6x6 stacks or the echo park ones too.

I find the 8 x 8 size (or less) have smaller patterns for cards.

I like some of the Basic Grey, Bo Bunny and Imaginisce. Right now, it seems, I have mostly Basic Grey. Their designs fit my present style.

Have fun looking. There a so many companies so you will have lots of choices.

I'm sorry I'm terribly out of the loop, I don't know what DSP stands for! I'm thinking from some of the company names mentioned you mean patterned paper...I must have old terminology!! LOL

Here's a link to look at some of the cute Jilibean Soup papers on Scrapbook.com. I just told my family that's what I want for my birthday this month.

They have lots of very cute 6 x 6 pads that are perfect for cards!

I like the My Mind's Eye papers they have them in a 6X6 size and I find that I am getting away from purchasing the 12 x 12 papers.... as I only make cards and I am really tired of having so many scraps left over from projects.
