Global Design Project #276

If you follow me on Instagram  or my blog you know that I like to play along with the Global Design Project weekly challenge. This weeks challenge #276 is case the designer Connie Collins. She is so talented and I love her art work.

Here is my take on her inspiration. For the background I die cut the chicken coop and corn from the Stampin' Up! Chick Dies set that will become available Feb.01, 2021, so mark your calendars LOL. It adds interest to the background but because it's cut out in the same color as the base layer it is very subtle and doesn't take away from the focal point. I also added some feathers as a fun element.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Global Design Project #273 | Color Challenge

 Happy New Year 2021! I hope this new year is a healthy and happy one for you!

This week the new January to June 2021 Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogs went live and they are chock full of super fun stamps, paper, dies and coordinating accessories!

One stamp set I skimmed past when I first looked at the catalog was the Friends Are Like Seashells. But when I watched the presentation at our virtual convention On-Stage-At-Home in November last year I totally fell in love with it. I feel the catalog pictures don't do it justice, especially the Pearlescent Specialty Paper. It's so pretty when you see it in person, a total must have!!!

And then there is the Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I didn't use the Hea t& Stick to apply the gold on this card, just the regular glue because I only wanted little accents. I let the glue slightly dry and then dipped a brush tip into the Gilded Leafing container and picked up some gold. This way the application more controllable. 

The color inspiration came from the Global Design Project #273. Always fun to play along!
