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.

High Tide from Stampin Up for #GDP080

I wanted to get my High Tide Stamp set inky for this weeks Global Design Project entry.  It is a case the designer week and we are casing Louise Sharp.  Louise is a super talented crafter who lies in Australia and is on the Stampin Up Artisan Design Team. I simply love her style and you must pop over to her blog.

High Tide from Stampin Up

I decided that the High Tide set needed a little grunging and totally she went for it with my sponge and timeless textures.

I inked the background onto very vanilla cardstock and sponged the sky with Pool Party and Marina Mist and then inked the edge with Smoky Slate around the edge.

I stamped the lighthouse in Dapper Denim Ink and added the shadow for the lighthouse with Basic Grey Ink.  The sea was stamped in Marina Mist and Mint Macaroon Ink.

High Tide from Stampin Up

I cut a 2″ wide rectangle to make a tag and added a dapper denim circle and punched a hole in the centre and tied linen and gold thread through the hole.

I added a rectangle of gold foil cardstock as a mount to the card and then added it to a Pool Party card base.

So let me show you Louise’s original card which we are casing this week.

#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.

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!

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.
