Global Design Project

Good morning all!

This week I thought I would give the Global Design Project a go. Each week they give different types of inspiration for a challenge, this week it is CASE the designer Connie Collins

I decided to follow Brian's example and show case one of the stamp sets I won at On Stage Local. I was lucky enough to win Beautiful You.

I took the yellow, green, blue colour pallet from Connie's card. I stamped the main image using Early Espresso then coloured her in using Stampin' Write Markers. I just knew her dress had to be green, bizarrely as green is not one of my go to colours. Once I had settled on Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and So Saffron chose themselves! 

The reflection is also part of the stamp set and the sentiment 'Life may not be the party we had hoped for but while we're here we might as well dance' is perfect.

I love both the carefree images and the lovely sentiments, this set is in the Stampin' Up! 2017 Spring/Summer catalogue and will be available for you to order from 4th January 2017.

Hidden 50 Birthday Card

Good morning all

Today I thought I'd share a 50th birthday card that doesn't have the number emblazoned on the outside but is positioned more subtly on the inside! I cased this from Diane Barnes an Australian demonstrator click here for the original post.

This was the first time I had used the Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies and I was so glad I had invested in the Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush, they made removing the the finished die cut really easy. They really are essential when using these intricate dies!

Here is the closed card, I think it really packs a wow!

Keep stamping
