Global Design Project 259

Challenges are so fun! It really helps me to get my creative juices flowing. This card is for the Global Design Project 259, one of my favorite challenges. The stamp set I used is the HARVEST HELLOS. At first glance it might seem to be a fall / Halloween set but it is so much more versatile. Thank you cards, just a simple hello card, get well cards and yes, Halloween and fall too. It covers so many different occasions. And I am sure all the talented stampers out there can come up with even more brilliant ideas. Click here to order your set today. Oh, and did I mention there is a coordinating punch for the apple? No fussy cutting required, makes it real easy.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting,

Have A Happy Day

If you have not seen the Rainbow Glimmer paper in the current Stampin' Up! catalog yet you need to check it out. I have been working with the paper all evening and there was not a speck of glitter anywhere!!!!!Love, love, love that! This card is quick and easy to make and the glimmer paper on the new magenta in-color really makes it pop.

Have a happy day everyone!

Global Design Project #253

This weeks Global Design Project #253 is a color challenge. The combination "Granny Apple Green", "Bumble Bee" and "Calypso Coral" is certainly creates a wow factor. I found it so inspiring that I created a whole stack of cards and had a hard time to decide which one I should submit.

For the flowers I die cut the base and the overlay from the same cardstock. To achieve the contrast I sponged the base with the same color ink and left the overlay untreated.

Another Bird

The Birds and More bundle with the Birds and Branches photopolymer stamps and the coordinating dies is so stinking cute! The two step stamping gives the stamped images so much depth. I find myself using all occasion sentiments lately. Oftentimes I make cards that are not for a special occasion and that way I can use them for pretty much everything.

Whiskey Business

Are you struggling to make masculine cards too? They were one of the biggest challenges for me. But now there are so many really cool stamp sets in the current SU catalog that make this task super easy! The first one I played with is the Whiskey Business. Combine that with the In Good Taste paper and it looks really masculine.

Global Design Project #248

This week's Global Design Project challenge #248 was CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) the designer. We were honored to CASE a card designed by the super talented Manuela Geiswinkler from Austria.

I used the fabulous Rainbow Glimmer Paper from the new 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! catalog. It's sooooo pretty and so sparkly! It is great to work with too because it doesn't cover your entire work area with glimmer.

Splash Vellum Background

This technique is so fun. And it was the perfect background for the Global Design Project #GDP247 theme "SUN FUN" this week.  I created a whole bunch of cards with it and every background is unique and different and it is always a surprise how it turns out.

I am so very honored that this project has been chosen by the design team to be a winner for this week's challenge!

I colored my velum with my Stampin' Blend markers. Then I spritzed some alcohol over the vellum. The ink gets pushed away where it hits the vellum and that creates super cool effects. Give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to see the new catalog a little early. We also get to pre-order some products from the new catty. It always feels like Christmas to open that box and see all the new stamps, dies, punches, accessories and so much more.

Here is a card I made with the new Birds and Branches set that comes as a bundle with coordinating dies. Isn't that so cute?

Stay healthy and happy crafting,
