Global Design Project 115- Theme Challenge

Happy Monday!!

I finally had a chance to sit down and stamp in my room yesterday. I can’t tell you the last time that I did that and the best part it was just for fun. No prepping of classes, just playing with inks, stamps and paper. 

I decided to try last week’s Global Design Project 115 challenge. Last week the challenge was to create a project about sharing the JOY of Christmas and showcasing things that makes you happy at this time of year!

Season Like Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set

One of the things that makes me happy at this time of year is seeing all the beautiful decoration that adores tree’s at this time of year. I love browsing all the different ornaments on the tree’s in the stores and even the ones that decorate tree’s outside. 

Season like Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set

When creating my project today, I used the gorgeous stamp set called Season like Christmas Photopolymer stamp set. The best thing about this stamp set is its’ a Two step stamping and the final stamp image is gorgeous. Make it look like a real Christmas Tree!!!

Great News this stamp set is part of the Last Chance List that is available till Jan 2, 2018. The Sad news, that it won’t be available after that, so if this stamp set has been on your wish list, you might want to add to your collection before they are leave us for good!

You can order these supplies too! You’ll find all of these Stampin’ Up! supplies in my ONLINE  STAMPIN’ UP! STORE by clicking on all of the photo’s below. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!!!

When I first saw the colours, I thought of Christmas. I know you are thinking, did she lose it!! Actually, I was in the process of prepping for my Christmas Stamp a Stack and thought this would make a great card to add to the class!

Global Design Project 093

Hello,

It's a big day in our house today as we celebrate Emily's 19th birthday. It's a little bit bittersweet, we are excited to celebrate this milestone with her but we are also sad that Corrie is not here to see it. I know that he is here in spirit with us as we celebrate this big day!!

As I was making her birthday card, I turned to this week's Global Design Project 093 challenge which happens to be a colour challenge!! I love colour challenges as the thinking is already done for you, you just need to create the project. And this week's colours are ONE of my favourite colour combinations!!

GDP093_Colour_Challenge

On my desk was the Wood Words stamp set, so I challenged myself to create a card with this set. I'm excited to share my card with you and a great little trick on creating a gift card holder inside your card!!

IMG_7155

Using the Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot machine, I embossed the word "Celebrate" on a piece of Whisper White card stock. Using the Circle image from the Wood Words stamp set, I randomly stamped Berry Burst circles on the Celebrate piece of card stock. While doing this, it helps to create the de-embossed look which create the word to stand out more!!!

IMG_7158

When first looking at my card, it looked like a normal card front, but I added an element of surprise to it. I created a belly band around my card. This adds a bit of fun to the card as to open the card, you have to pull off the belly band!! 

My belly band was created with 2 1/2 by 11 piece of Pool Party card stock. I just placed my strip around my card and fold it to create the belly band. I secure the two end pieces with a piece of fast fuse adhesive!

IMG_7157

For the inside, I used the Wood Crate Framelit to create a pocket to hold a gift card. When I was looking at the little slots on the side of the crate, I thought that a gift card might fit into it, and when I tried it out, I was like bonus! I love when you can find other ways to use your products!!

IMG_7159

To create the gift card holder, cut out a wood crate using a Big Shot machine and the Wood Crate Framelit. Then using a pair of paper snips, cut off the tabs and the side tab. This will leave you with the big piece with the slot in it. Adhere to your card stock, but remember to only adhere the sides as you want the gift card to be able to slide in and out of the slots!

I can't wait to see how Emily likes her card tonight!! Now it's your turn to try this fun and fresh colour combination. You can head over the Global Design Project page to check out gallery to see how other stamper's used this colour challenge in their projects!!

Hello,

Last week I had a chance to play along with this week Global Design Project #GDP081 colour sketch. This week the colour combination was the following:

 

I was creating a card for a special friend to let her know that I was thinking of her and knew that I wanted to use the High Tide Stamp set! This is a MUST have stamp set in your collection as you can use it for so many different occasions!!

I decided that my colour combination was going to be: Night of Navy, Whisper White and Pool Party! This combination reminds me of the ocean and they say that the smell of the ocean is good for the soul…just like stamping..its great for your soul!!!

Global Design Project – #GDP080

Hello,

This past week I had a chance to play along with this week's Global Design Project – Case the Designer! This week the designer was Louise Sharp. When I first saw the sketch, I thought it would be fun to focus on the tag.  

On my projects to do list was to create two Easter cards for my mom! I thought this challenge and the Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder Framelits would work perfect for my idea!!

Here is the image that the Global Design Project team pick for us to CASE!! Now we could CASE the sketch layout, the colours, or whatever inspired us and then we were to create a project on our own!!!

I decided to use the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper stack as my focus point. I decided on my pattern paper first and then build my card stock colour from there!!

I went with the yummy colours of Peekaboo Peach, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. I decided to add a bit of colour by adding Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder and So Saffron easter eggs!!! 

Tips for my Project: 

  • stamp the bunny on Shimmery White paper with Black Archival Ink
  • colour  the bunny with Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay ink with a blender pen
  • Emboss the Early Espresso piece using the Boho Chic Impression Folder and the Big Shot machine
  • Use the grass framelit from the Basket Builder Framelit set to create some grass
  • Pop us the Bunny and eggs
  • Use the Scallop Tag  Topper Punch to create the perfect scallop tag

Now it's your turn to play along with us. Head over the Global Design Project blog and give this fun Case the Designer challenge a go!! Can't wait to see what you created!!
