I love all the wonderful inspiration being shared at the Global Design Project. From week to week, the challenges are producing some wonderful work from Design Team members and participants – and I love that I can share from the start of each week. This week’s color combination – Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate – offers SO MANY beautiful possibilities. Spring, baby, birthday, sympathy, thank you. Here’s the card I created with this gorgeous combination of colors:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
- Stamps. The sweet and simple images on my card were created by combining a sophisticated stamp set with a cutesy set. Do you know which ones I used? I’m not going to wait for you to guess – I’m just going to tell you. The sentiment is from Picture Perfect (a beautiful Two-Step and Three-Step Stampin’ set), and the flowers are from Bear Hugs (a sweet and silly set with adorable bears). As both images are photopolymer, I easily positioned the flowers perfectly on the sentiment similar to the way I stamped flowers on the Kinda Eclectic sentiment in this card.
- Dies. With super-simple layering, the Lots of Labels Framelits add lovely elements to a clean and simple card. While there are some sentiments and images that are designed to coordinate with these framelits, almost anything can work well inside this fresh, fun frame. I didn’t center the sentiment and image in the frame so I could add some tiny banners beneath them.
- Pretty Paper. I pulled two Designer Series Papers for this color combination – Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper has a really great Daffodil Delight page with Whisper White dots, and Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack has a great Whisper White page with Basic Gray dots. I split the background of this card by combining the two.
Stamp Sets: Picture Perfect, Bear Hugs Papers: Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper, Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Gray, Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz) Accessories: Lots of Labels Framelits, Hexagon punch (for banner tips), Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
