Lovely Inside & Out Bundle for the Global Design Project

I have a card to share for the Global Design Project sketch challenge using the Lovely Inside & Out Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Lovely Inside & Out from Stampin Up

It is a very simply sketch and I really encourage you to join in this week and share what you make using the sketch for inspiration.

Here’s how I made it

I used a brand new designer series paper coming in the new autumn/winter catalogue for the background of my card, isn’t it lovely.  You really are in for a treat in September 🙂

I layered the paper and burlap ribbon to give an earthy/natural feel and added the greeting from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set and cut the ‘hugs’ die cut word from the Lovely Words Thinlits.

I added some gold foil to two of the corners for something different and then fussy cut a small spring of leaves to accent the hugs word. A final wrap of linen thread and it was complete.

Really simply, let’s go and see what the other design team members have made using the same sketch and be sure to check out how to enter this weeks challenge over at the Global Design Project

Grown with Love from Stampin’ Up!

I have a pretty garden themed card made using the Grown with Love stamp set from Stampin Up to share with you today for a colour challenge for the Global Design Project.

Grown with Love from Stampin' Up!

I fell in love with the cute stamps with the greeting incorporated into the design.

How I made this card

I cut a strip of very vanilla cardstock 2″ wide and punched the tag topper punch to create a tag.

I coloured the plant pot in Crumb Cake ink, the leaves in Wild Wasabi and the flowers in Berry Burst using the Stampin Write markers.  I added versa mark ink to the greeting and heat embossed it in silver embossing powder.

I stamped the flowers again in Berry Burst Ink and hand cut around them and raised them up with the teeny tiny dimensionals.

I drew a pencil line around the tag and then stamped the flowers and leaves from the other stamps in this set in crumbed cake to create a stamped background.

I added some Berry Burst splatters using the Timeless Textures stamp and then sponged with crumb cake ink to add some contrast.

Finally some Glitter enamel dots added a little glitter and sparkle and the Finely Woven Ribbon added some texture.

I really hope you join us this week and create a card using the same colours and share with us over at the Global Design Project.

Butterflies Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!

This week at the Global Design Project we are casing the designer Tanja Solar from Germany.  I have used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies as Tanja using the dragonfly in her beautiful card.    You must pop over to take a look at her lovely blog as she is super talented.  We are currently both in Thailand enjoying the Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip together 🙂

Watercolor Wings from Stampin' Up! case of Tanja Kolar

I kept my card pretty simple this week and added lots of layers and textures.

How I made my Card
  • I cut a rectangle from the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP and die cut the detailed butterfly using the Butterfly Thinlits.
  • I punched a piece of Pool Party card with the Ticket Tear Border Punch and layered it underneath the foil frenzy rectangle.
  • I cut a length of Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and glued and stapled it to the foil frenzy rectangle.
  • I stamped a greeting from the Watercolor Wings stamp set onto white cardstock in black ink and cut into a rectangle.
  • I die cut a fancy strip from the Flourish Thinlits in Island Indigo cardstock.
  • Everything was layered up onto my whisper white card base.
  • I then added glue to the body of the butterfly and secured it into the die cut space to hold it to the card but left the wings to move freely.
  • A few rhinestones and it was complete.

Here is the lovely card we are casing this week from Tanja Kolar.

Birthday Delivery from Stampin’ Up!

Today I am sharing a perfect kids/children’s card made using the Birthday Delivery stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Lovely bright colours and a fancy fold too, what’s not to love all for the Global Design Project theme challenge.

Birthday Delivery from Stampin' Up!

Everything about this card is bright fun and energetic just like the 4 year old who I sent it to!

I heat embossed the greeting from Birthday Delivery with Silver Embossing Powder.  I hand cut the presents from the matching Birthday Memories patterned paper.  The greetings in the Birthday Memories stamp set are designed to fit inside the flag/banner that Mr Fox is waving.

This bundle is so clever as the dies are designed to cut out the characters on the patterned paper as well as the stamped images – so versatile!

I created the tab closure with the envelope punch board and when you open it……

The paper insert is attached to the top fold and moves up and down as you open and close the card 🙂

I really hope you join in with this weeks challenge and make a card for the kids in your family.  Simply pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have made using the same theme and see instructions on how to enter your own card to be in with a chance of being the weekly winner!
