This week’s Global Design Project challenge encourages us to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a design by the uber-talented Kylie Bertucci, a Design Team Member for the Global Design Project. Kylie is a good friend of mine, so this was particularly fun for me. The inspiration can be found in the layout, the colors, the sentiment, the images. What a great way to share our work while honoring someone else! Here’s my Design Team Member card for this week’s challenge:
- The Large Circle. I just love the big, bold circle that showcases the image and sentiment on Kylie’s card. As such, I showcased my image on a big, bold circle as well. I stamped my sentiment from That Thing You Did on Thick Whisper White and then cropped it with one of the larger Circles Collection Framelits. I’ll share more about how I stamped the image in tomorrow’s post – with a new video.
- The Textured, Neutral Backdrop. I love how Kylie used the Writing Notes background stamp to create a lovely striped texture in the Tip Top Taupe backdrop for this card. I, too, created a Tip Top Taupe backdrop but used the striped pattern from Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack to create a bold panel along the right hand side of my card.
- The Cherry Cobbler Banner. I love the bold, Cherry Cobbler banner that Kylie created on the front of her card. I knew I wanted to add the secondary sentiment that coordinates with “High Five” – what better way to add it than to heat emboss it with White Stamping’ Emboss Powder? I cropped one side of the banner with the edge of my Hexagon punch. Too see how I did that, watch my video here.
- The Color Scheme. Don’t you love this color combination – mostly Tip Top Taupe and Cherry Cobbler with a little bit of Crushed Curry thrown in for good measure? If you like this combination, please feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: That Thing You Did Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Tip Top Taupe, Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack, Thick Whisper White Inks: Tip Top Taupe, Cherry Cobbler, Stampin’ Write Maker (Crushed Curry) Accessories: White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Circles Collection Framelits, Hexagon punch (for banner tip), 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.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow. I’m excited to show you how I inked up this photopolymer stamp with three different colors. Any guesses? 🙂
