Love & Thanks #GDP142

Good Morning,

The Global Design Project has a sketch challenge this week.

You can see the samples made by the design team here!

I have used Tropical Escapes suite to make my card for the challenge.

I picked out some Designer Series paper which was cut at an angle. I didn’t measure it, just what looked appealing. This was adhered to a white card base.

The opposite side was punched with a 2 inch circle punch and added with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.

Two leaves were stamped with first and second generation ink and die cut. These were positioned under the sentiment and secured with snail adhesive.

A double bow was tied from silver Baker’s twine and added with a glue dot. Some Mint Macaron faceted dots finished the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Textures of the Sea #FMS339

Hello Everyone,

This week’s sketch challenge has been set by Jen Brum.

The design team have made some great projects as inspiration; you can see them all on the Freshly Made Sketches blog, here!

This is my entry for the challenge;

I really wanted to use Sea of Textures on this card. I thought the shape could be a coral reef on the sea bed.

I picked out some paper from the coordinating designer series paper collection. The paper was cut diagonally, one piece was flipped over to create the “V” shape.

Before adhering to the card, I stamped the tall sea weed across the background with Tranquil Tide ink.

The papers were added to the card, leaving space for other pieces to be positioned behind them.

Other seaweed and coral elements were die cut from Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig. These were tucked in place.

Finally, the octopus was stamped with Night of Navy ink, die cut and adhered with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!

Sending Love & Hugs #FMS336

Hello and Happy Friday!

The freshly made sketches design team have been busy again. See how they interpreted this week’s sketch here!

And this is what I have created;

Some Real Red Tutti-Frutti designer series paper was adhered to a Whisper White card base.

A piece of Lemon Lime Twist paper from the same collection was cut to size along with a piece of Whisper White.

The Ribbon of Courage stamp set was used as the feature image. I chose to use Real Red ink to match the base layer.

The ribbon was coloured with watercolour pencils.

The layers were adhered together with snail, and then to the base card with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Inspire.Create 017

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful bank holiday!

Today’s project is my entry for the Inspire Create Challenge.

This time it is a sketch challenge…. I like these because it makes me think differently about my crafting. You can see what the design team did with this by clicking here!

This is how I decided to interpret this sketch.

Of course I am using up supplies that are due to retire at the end of the month.

The card base is made with Peekaboo Peach card stock with a layer of A Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper added to it.

A 3/4 inch strip of Old Olive card stock was added at the top.

Three 1 inch squares of Peekaboo Peach card stock were cut ready to decorate the card.

The small flower from the Falling Flowers stamp set was stamped with Pool Party ink and die cut.

The flowers were adhered to each square with leaves punched from Old Olive card stock. This was then added to the card with dimensionals.

I wanted to add a sentiment, so I used a small thank you from Thoughtful Banners which was cut with the Classic Label punch.

Then I went a bit crazy with the rhinestones! Adding to the flower centres and the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used to make it are listed below.

The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink and cut with the Starburst punch.

This was added to a 2-1/4 inch card stock circle. The largest circle from the Stitched Shapes framelit collection was used to cut some vellum.
