Fun Guy Card

Hello folks,

First of all, sorry about the title; couldn’t resist!

Just lately, I have been experimenting with different ways to create layers on my cards. This is what I came up with today, partly inspired by some recent challenges I have taken part in.

For this design, I have opted to use the same patterned paper design on both panels. This is from the Pick A Pattern collection.

The base layer has been cut to my usual formula using a black card base .

The second layer was cut 1 inch shorter and narrower with DSP to match.

Some Whisper White sheer ribbon was wrapped three times around the panel before adhering to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is taken from the matching stamp set and was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. This was cut with a scalloped circle die and mounted on to an Everyday Label punched from Sahara Sand card stock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. The supplies used are listed below.

Sending Love #GDP108

Good Morning.,

It’s Global Design Project time.

This week the challenge is to CASE the designer, Brian King. You can see what the design team created here.

This is what I made;

The original card uses a DSP background. I selected this piece from the A Whole Lot of Lovely collection. This determined the colour of the card base – Pool Party. I stuck with Early Espresso for the matting.

I used the coordinating stamp set for the bold greeting which I decided to heat emboss with copper powder.

I pulled in two hearts, rather than just one. I picked out Early Espresso to match the layers, and Tangerine Tango from the paper.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Coffee Shaker

Good Morning!

Here’s a first… A shaker card!

I have used a Crumb Cake card base.

Some Coffee Break DSP was cut to size. Before adhering this to the card, I die cut a circle forming an aperture.

The same die was used to cut some Early Espresso card stock, I then used a larger scalloped circle to create a frame.

I cut some foiled acetate with the same scalloped die. The Early Espresso frame was adhered to this to create a window. On the reverse, I used a foam strip, these are easy to shape around the window.

Some sequins were added to the card base. Don’t make the pile to deep as they will get caught and move around. The window was positioned over the top.

A coffee cup was stamped in Crumb Cake ink, with the sentiment added in Early Espresso.

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

Inspire. Create. Challenge #002

Hi there,

It’s time for a new Inspire.Create. Challenge!

This time it’s a sketch challenge.

You can see what the design team came up with here.

This is my interpretation. I have used the Eastern Beauty suite of products.

I started by making a card base from Dapper Denim card stock. I added a Lemon Lime Twist card layer.

A piece of designer series paper was cut slightly smaller, and then sliced at an angle, I didn’t measure it – just went for it.

The centre panel is made with Dapper Denim card stock. This is 3/4 inch smaller than the card layer. A Whisper White layer was cut to 1/8 inch smaller. This panel was adhered flat to the card base.

For the sentiment, I stamped the circle and wording with Dapper Denim ink and die cut with a Layering Circle Framelit. This was adhered to an Eastern Medallion cut from Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

A vinyl sticker was placed on to the card. The medallion was then added with dimensionals.

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

There For Me

Good Morning,

I gave in and made an eclipse card. All the examples I have seen use letters to make this style of card, but I decided to do something a bit different.

The card itself is very simple.

The base is made with Pear Pizzazz card stock.

The white layer was stamped with the bamboo image from Artistically Asian using Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive ink.

Heart dies were used to cut apertures from the stamped layer. Keep the pieces that come out. Cut another pair of hearts from thick Whisper White to sit in each aperture.

Stick down the stamped layer on to the card base. Add two layers of the plain hearts to each aperture, then the stamped ones on top.

A sentiment from the set was added in black ink at the bottom of the card.

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

RAWR!

Hey there,

This is a fun card to make for a special someone in your life.

This card features the Pick A Pattern designer series paper which is currently included in the DSP sale this month.

The paper helps me to decide on the colour scheme of the card. For this I picked out Sahara Sand as a neutral to make the card base.

I have teamed this with the No Bones About It stamp set. I used one of the skeletons and Sahara Sand ink to add interest.

A piece of Basic Black card was cut 1/2 inch shorter and narrower than the card front, with the DSP being cut 1/8 inch smaller again. I added some Crushed Curry bakers twine and adhered this to the card at a slight angle with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Crushed Curry ink and die cut. This was layered on to some Emerald Envy card stock cut with the Starburst punch. A small banner of Sahara Sand card stock was put behind this for some contrast.

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

This week is a theme challenge. Click here to see what the design team created.

Here is my project.

inkybutterfly: Copper embossed Hello Friend card for Global Design Project #107

From Whisper White card stock, I created a card base and cut two card layers, 4 by 5-3/4 and 3-1/2 by 4-3/4 inches.

On the larger piece, I used Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the decorative image in two corners. This was adhered flat to the card base.

The smaller layer was rubbed over with an embossing buddy. The wreath was stamped in versamark ink and heat embossed with copper powder.

Some Pear Pizzazz Shimmer ribbon was wrapped around and adhered to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and die cut. This was positioned on top of the ribbon, with loops of copper metallic thread behind it.

To complete the card, I added a small bow and rhinestones.
