Popcorn Box Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!

This week over at the Global Design Project we have a theme challenge and the theme is Amusement Park!

Honestly I was stumped, there is one obvious stamp set in the seasonal catalogue which would be a perfect choice but I don’t own it (shock horror – I don’t own everything you know!) so I had to think outside the box.

Then I thought Popcorn box, you eat popcorn at amusement parks, yes that is it, please tell me I own the Popcorn Box Thinlit dies.  Thankfully I do and this is this weeks project…

Isn’t it cute!  Why have I not made these for ages?  I just want to make popcorn boxes and eat popcorn all day!

I love the diagonal stripe designer series paper and added some flowers from the Jar of Love bundle to accent the popcorn label.

#GDP076 case the designer Kylie Bertucci

This week at the Global Design Project we are casing the designer Kylie Bertucci.  Kylie Bertucci is one of the organisers of the fantastic Global Design Project and I am so thankful to work alongside her on this project, be sure to pop over to her blog to check out her latest work.

I have a get well soon card for you today but its a little different to normal but I LOVED making it 😉

#GDP076 Beetles & Bugs from Stampin Up

Some of you might be squeamish about this card but as long as it doesn’t contain spiders I am fine!  I bet some young boys and girls would love this card, I just loved the ‘bug’ reference.

I stamped a panel onto whisper white thick cardstock of insects using black ink and then stamped the bugs in bright colours.  There are 32 stamps included in the Beetles & Bugs stamp set and which stamp correlates to each critter is shown on the cover so its easy to create your insects.  I then added crystal effects to the larger beetles to make them look shiny and some heat embossed dots in silver to some of the others.

#GDP076 Beetles & Bugs from Stampin Up

To create my own greeting I used the labeler alphabet stamp set and stamped and cut around each letter and added more crystal effects (or glossy accents or fine tip glue) to give them the shiny finish also.

Finally I added a strip of dapper denim cardstock to frame the stamping.  Thank you for the inspiration Kylie Bertucci.

Hey Chick stamps free during Sale-a-bration

Thanks for popping by today.  I am sharing a card I made for a colour challenge with the Global Design Project using the Hey Chick stamp set which is free during our amazing offer Sale-a-bration.

Hey Chick free during Sale-a-bration

Love this crazy looking chicken and I created the chick wire back ground by using our Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder and Inking one side of the folder with black ink so that it stamped and embossed the design in swipe through the big shot.

I then punched out a circle of cardstock and then cut into the circle to create the opening for the chicken.

I then grunged up the edges and inked the edges with a sponge and the Basic Grey Ink.  The chicken itself was stamped on whisper white and coloured using our wonderful watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

As I mentioned this week at the Global Design Project it is a colour challenge and these are the colours you can use to make your own project and share with us to be in with a chance of being the weekly winner and being a guest designer.

Window Box Thinlits from Stampin Up

I am sharing a card I have made today using the Window Box Thinlits for the Global Design Project case the designer challenge!  This week we are casing Krista Frattin who is a Canadian Stampin Up Demo who is uber talented and a past Artisan Design team member.

#GDP072 Window Shopping Thinlits from Stampin Up

I have used a combination of products to make this card including the Irresistibly Floral design er series paper which is white and has an embossed design on it so I used the sponge brayer to add Daffoldil Delight ink to make it background yellow and the diamond pattern pop in white.

I then cut the small square die from the Window Box thinlit dies and cut around the pattern using the stitched shapes framelits. The scallop circle is from the circle framlits nesting dies and the vellum piece has been stamped and heat embossed with the little flower from the Window Shopping stamp set which coordinates with the window shopping dies.

I added a little circle of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper behind the die cut to add some sparkle.

The card we cased is shown below.  Beautifully simple or simply beautiful, either way so easy to case and make your own creation.  So why not join us this week and case Krista and upload over at the Global Design Project?

#GDP067 Lovely as a tree from Stampin’ Up!

This week at the Global Design Project we have a theme and that theme is to make a card with trees in it!  It was so easy for me to choose which stamp set to use, the iconic Lovely as a Tree from Stampin’ Up!  It is the only stamp that has been in the annual catalogue every UK catalogue since we launched back in 2009.  A true classic and so versatile as you will see in a moment.

I saw a beautiful card made by Kim Jolley and she has kindly shared the tutorial her blog so please pop on over to see how to make this style of card which she calls Foolproof Watercolor.

#gdp067-lovely-as-a-tree cased from Kim Jolley

As you can see I loved it so much I made three!  They really are quick to rustle up and so effective. Which one is your favourite?
I used the single tree stamp for the card below and embossed the tree with gold embossing powder.

#gdp067-lovely-as-a-tree cased from Kim Jolley

On the card below I used the stamp from Lovely as a tree (the one with several trees) and embossed it in white and staggered the trees off into the bottom left corner and I also used the splatter dots stamp from Timeless Textures to look like snow.

#gdp067-lovely-as-a-tree cased from Kim Jolley using Lovely as a Tree

On the last card below I stamped the row of trees once and embossed in gold.  We made this card at a class this week and the ladies loved it!
