Jar of Love from Stampin’ Up for #GDP082

I am using my favourite set today, Jar of Love.  I simply adore it and I hear it is carrying over into the new catalogue so that is a whole another year to share ideas and inspiration using this set.  This week at the Global Design Project we have a sketch challenge.
Jar of Love for Global Design ProjectMy card is made using heavy weight whisper white cardstock and has no layers, I simply masked a line on the card front and stamped the two separate areas of the card separately.

I used the Diagonal Stripe background stamp to create the stripes in Pink Pirouette Ink and then stamped the flowers from the Jar of Love stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the flower off first to create a lighter shade for the whole flower then stamped the flower centre using the Flirty Flamingo ink without stamping off first.

I filled the gaps with the leaves and hearts using versa mark and heat embossed in Silver Embossing powder.

I added a sliver glimmer paper strip down the card to separate the two stamping styles.
I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments in the seasonal catalogue using versa mark ink and heat embossed in silver too.  I used the label framelits to cut out the greeting and simply stuck it in place with dimensionals.

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.

#GDP064 Case the designer Connie Collins

This week at the Global Design Project we are caseing the designer Connie Collins.  I adore Connie’s card and her photography so relished the thought of making a card in her honour.  I loved the bright colour scheme of Connie’s card and that was my starting point for this card.

#gdp064-best-blooms-case-of-connie-collins

It combines lots of my favourites as I have used Jar of Love and Blooms & Wishes and its such a refreshing colour palette at this time of year! Below is the card from Connie, we would love you to join in and design a card based on the one below.

#GDP061 Hidden Message Card

Happy New Week.  I have a hidden message card to share with you today.  I was first inspired by Patrice Halliday-Larsen with her beautiful hidden message card shown here! This card was made for a colour challenge for the Global Design Project and I would love you all to join us and made something using the 3 stampin up colours shown below.

#GDP061 Hidden Message Card

I have used a stamp set you may not have noticed called The Places You’ll Go from the annual catalogue as I adore the sentiment. In case you are wondering where the black dots are in the centre of the flowers are from, they are our pearls coloured with a black sharpie.

And here is the inside… And you are probably wondering where the hidden message is?

I created a quick video for you… click the link below to view.

Jar of Love Christmas Shaker Card

Designer Series Paper Sale from Stampin Up

I made this cute shaker card using the Jar of Love stamp set and dies from Stampin’ Up!  I love this set so much and I love shaker cards but I thought I would add sweeties this time and do a little something fancy so that the sentiment shows through the acetate but is in fact on the inside of the card!

Jar of Love Christmas Shaker Card

I used some designer series paper (get one pack free when you buy three packs in October) across the bottom and embossed the white card with the beautiful Holly embossing folder.

I used the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set for the sentiment and to stamp and punch out the little sweets.  Love the pop of red on the card!

I also heat embossed the jar lid to make it look like metal.

There is a chill in the air so it is definitely time to start thinking about Christmas cards!  We have some gorgeous products in our seasonal catalogue (and our annual too) so time to get shopping and pinning on Pinterest ready for your goodies to arrive.
