I always love the “CASE the Designer” challenges at thse Global Design Project. It’s always such an honor to pay homage to fellow designers and friends. While I’ve not met Michelle Last, a super-talented and successful demonstrator in the UK, I’ve developed a great online friendship with her. I’m excited that I can CASE one of Michelle’s cards for this week’s challenge. Here’s my card:
- The Layout. I adore the layout of Michelle’s card – while we cN CASE the colors, stamp sets, papers, layout, theme (the list goes on), I am most intrigued by the layout of Michelle’s card. The panel that drapes over the top, left of the card intrigues me so I couldn’t wait to recreate it in my own visions. Like Michelle’s card, I used a panel of gorgeous Designer Series Paper for the background and a fun focal image on the panel. I placed my sentiment at the base of the panel – I rounded the corners with my Project Life Corner punch – I love how that small change can make such a difference in my card.
- Sweet Cherry on Top. I just love this ice cream cone from Honeycomb Happiness – one of the items you can earn with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. I stamped two scoops of ice cream on Mint Macaron cardstock and this speckled pattern from Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and stacked them high. What fun! It’s a small element on this card, but it plays a big role. I stamped the tiny, smiley-faced cherry from Cupcake Party and punched it with the Cupcake Builder punch. He adds a little whimsy to this sweet and sophisticated card.
- Mint Chocolate Chip. I have fallen in love with Mint Macaron. I initially set out to create a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone, but I found that wasn’t necessary if I surrounded the ice cream with the right colors. I love the warmth of Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso – just so sweet. If you like this combination, too, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Honeycomb Happiness, Cupcake Party Papers: Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Mint Macaron, Whisper White Inks: Early Espresso, Real Red Accessories: Project Life Corner punch, Cupcake Builder punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s CASE the Designer challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
