Falling Flowers from #GDP083

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter.

This week over at the Global Design Project we are making projects which are sparkly or bling.

I am not normally known for sparkles and don’t have a strong love of glitter but I used out heat and stick powder and our dazzling diamonds glitter on the Falling Flowers Bundle as the heat and stick keeps the glitter on the card.   Heat & Stick is being discontinued so if you love it I encourage you to stock up.

#GDP083 Falling Flowers from Stampin Up

It is wedding season and I decided to use Falling Flowers and Better Together for the sentiment.  I stamped the background with soft sky ink and the beautiful swirly stamp onto whisper white cardstock.

I then stamped several flowers and leaves in versa mark and sprinkled over the heat and stick powder and heat set and whilst the glue from the Heat & Stick was still tacky I sprinkled over the Dazzling Diamonds glitter which then sticks in place without rubbing off.

I then die cut the flowers and leaves with the matching May Flowers Framelit dies.  You only have until the end of May to stock up on this bundle of stamps and framelits at a 10% discount.  They are going into the new annual catalogue but they won’t be offered at a discounted bundle.

The greeting/sentiment is from Better Together which I heat embossed in white onto vellum.

It is so sparkly and I raised the flowers up on dimensionals and added a pearl to the centre of the flowers.

So I really hope you are going to play along this week and make something of your own which is sparkly/blingy and upload to the Global Design Project.

Let’s pop on over to see what the other design team members have made using this same theme, you are sure to be blown away.

Mixed Drinks from Stampin’ Up!

I have been playing with my Mixed Drinks Stamp set and have made some really simple cards.

I love the champagne glasses and I added some sparkle using the heat and stick powder and the dazzling diamonds glitter and a versamark pen.

Mixed Drinks Champagne Card

I used the same card style for lots of drinks and loved how they turned out!  I especially love the beer one, a perfect male card.

Once I started I could not stop 🙂

Mixed Drinks with Sparkly Champagne

I adore the sentiment ‘Friends don’t let friends wine alone’.  Lots of friends I could give that to!

So I hope I have inspired you to reach for this set and get crafting as it is so easy to get a good result and with so many stamps there are so many options.

Don’t forget that we only have 9 more days of saleabration so that means something free with every £45 you spend and there were more free options added yesterday, check out my blog post to see the saleabration offering.

Jolly Friends from Stampin Up for #GDP052

This week we are casing the designer Teneale Williams!  That is quite a task as Teneale makes BEAUTIFUL things, she is an Artisan Design Team member and uber talented!  Check out Teneale’s blog here, you won’t be disappointed!  I used her beautiful card as a sketch and incorporated the new Jolly Friends stamp set on my card.

Jolly Friends from Stampin Up #GDP052

There is lots of texture on this card, I just adore the new cable knit embossing folder, it gives such a deep embossed finish.  I had some stamped and inked hardwood cardstock left over from this baby card from the Global Design Project challenge so I decided to use it on this card.

There are lots of jolly characters in the Jolly Friends stamp set including a moose! You can interchange the hats, scarves and make them your own and of course there is a matching builder punch too.

Here is the card we have to case, why not join in this week too and case Teneale’s card?
