Blooms & Wishes from Stampin Up for #GDP041

I am sharing a card inspired by a colour challenge over at the Global Design Project.

Each week the Global Design Project shares a creative challenge and everyone is invited to upload their own creations and inspire one another.  3 winners are selected each week along with some honourable mentions.  Why not join us this week?

Blooms & Wishes #GDP041

I reached for the new Blooms & Wishes stamp set and only using two colours of ink, I found it surprisingly easy to create a pretty card!

Blooms & Wishes #GDP041

I wanted to create a little dimension so I added some enamel shapes and stamped some of the smaller flower and cut around it and raised it up on dimensionals.

I got three shades of the same colour by stamping the flower three times, that way I was able to use just two ink pads and get varying shades of ink…

This is this weeks colour challenge, please join us and make something using the same colours and upload it to the Global Design Project website, we love to see what you make. You can also see what all the design team have created using the same 3 colours and you are sure to be inspired.

Stampin Up Incentive Trip – Med Cruise 2016

I recently went on the Stampin Up Incentive Trip on a Mediterranean Cruise and had a blast.

Honestly it was an amazing experience and I made so many wonderful memories.

We flew out to Barcelona 3 days before the cruise departed as we had never been there before.  We hired an apartment right in the centre of Barcelona and took in the sights and sounds with these lovlies…. We did a segway tour, walked Las Ramblas, visited the food market and had some lovely meals together.  The icing on the cake was the roof top pool, it felt so good to relax and refresh before the cruise started.Med Cruise 2016 - Stampin Up Incentive Trip

Once we boarded the cruise it was non stop fun, friends and excursions.  We only had one day at sea and every night when we went back to our cabin there was a pillow gift from Stampin Up.  We were well and truly spoilt.Med Cruise 2016 Pillow Gifts Stampin Up

These are some of the lovely people I got to hang out with…Med Cruise 2016 with Stampin Up

So many amazing memories jam packed into 10 days.  These trips are not just a free holiday they are some of the best experiences and wonderful memories and worth all the hard work and commitment.  I am really blessed to love what I do, whilst having a blast at the same time.

Here is to Thailand next year! Thanks for visiting my blog x

Jar of Love Vase of Flowers - Pinkies Blog Hop

I love this colour palette and the little stripe of washi tape really adds a pop of colour.

I also used the new sponge brayer to add a little sahara sand ink around the edge of the white card which was raised up using dimensionals.

I left off the sentiment so that I can add the perfect one when I am ready to send this little jar of flowers.

Global Design Project #GDP040 using Jar of Love

This weeks card is case the designer week and we are casing the super talented and oh so lovely Shawn de Oliveria.  Shawn is one of the super talented design team at the Global Design Project and I really recommend you pop over to his blog as he makes beautiful cards.

I am having so much fun using all my new supplies from the new annual Stampin Up catalogue. One of my new favourites is Jar of Love.  It has so much potential as there are so many stamps and framelits in the bundle.

Jar of Love from Stampin Up - #GDP040

I embossed the background onto a Daffodil Delight Card base leaving a blank panel on the right for the sentiment.

I inked a piece of pool party cardstock with rich razzleberry ink and diecut the sunshine die cut from the new Sunshine Wishes Framelits. I added the ‘spread the’ sentiment from Jar of Love.

I stamped the glass jar onto acetate using White StazOn and added a layer of white card underneath which was watercoloured to give the effect of water in the jar.

Jar of Love from Stampin Up - #GDP040

I stamped and die cut the flowers in varying shades of Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Ink (and crushed curry ink).  And finally a little flourish of gold metallic thread around the neck of the jar and an enamel dot as the dot for the ‘i’.

Here is the sketch of the card from Shawn de Oliveira. Isn’t it beautiful?

#GDP040

Get Well Card using Stampin Up products

This weeks Global Design Project theme is to make a Get Well Card using Stampin Up supplies.

I made this before I left for the Stampin Up Incentive trip and I am so pleased I did as I have my Open House tomorrow and still have lots more to prepare to share with all the ladies who are coming along!

#GDP039 Get Well Card using Stampin Up Supplies

I used Timeless Textures to create the grid backgound and heat embossed it in white and added the flourish.  I then used our new sponge brayers to add two colours of ink which gives a lovely subtle background which is easy to blend.

I added the sentiment from Greatest Greetings using Watermelon Wonder ink and added a flower and leaves for some more texture and detail.
