Global Design Project #GDP081

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!!!

Tips and Tricks for my card:

  • Colours that I used on my card are: Night of Navy, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, and Old Olive
  • Stamp the solid image of the light house in Night of Navy and then stamp the image of the lights in Smoky Slate
  • Water was created with the water image and pool party. I just randomly stamp in different area's to create the waves in the water
  • I used the Seaside Impression Folder to add a little bit of texture to my card
  • My pattern paper is from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper 
  • My sand was created with the sand image and soft suede ink
  • Add a little bit of grass with Old Olive ink
  • I stamped my greeting on Whisper White paper with Night Of Navy ink and cut out with the Big Shot and the Stitched Shape Framelits

I can't wait to hear how my friend liked her card..I just wanted her to know that I was thinking of her and that I'm here to support her through the high and low tides of life!!!

Now, it's your turn to play along with this Gorgeous colour combination!! You can head over the Global Design Project blog to see the gallery of project created with this week's #GDP081 challenge!!

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!!!

GDP80.jpg

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!!

Last Day of Sale a Bration!!

Hello,

I can't believe that today is the last day of Sale a Bration!! You still have time to order your favourite Sale a Bration they are gone for good tonight!!

My project today is one that my bestie friend Michelle made a few weeks ago! She was here one night and want to get me back to stamping. So we made this card!!!

IMG_6624

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So the crazy part of this whole card was that it took her over an hour to cut out each individual hexagon as she wanted to make it look like Chicken Wire!! This card has been a highlight in my studio...the ladies love it!!! 

The funny part after she was done making this card which took her over an hour to make, I told her that I would like 20 more and of course Michelle just laughed at me!!!

Tips on this card: 

  • Michelle inked up the Hexagon Impression folder with Black Memento ink and they ran a piece of paper through the Big Shot. 
  • Then she took a pair of Paper snip and cut out each hexagon to make it look like Chicken Wire
  • Then she cut out the middle of the hexagon as she wanted it to look like her chick was in the middle of the card!

Remember you only have till 11:50 pm tonight to place your last order for Sale a Bration. I have an order going tonight at 8 pm if you would like to add it!! Remember you can also earn Sweet Rewards on your orders placed with me!!
