This week’s Global Design Project sketch is super-clean and super-simple. It doesn’t get any better than this – and I was excited to finally use my cake stamp from Party Wishes and my sentiment from Party Pants. All-in-all, this card is all about the party. 🙂 Here’s my card for this week’s challenge:
- Party Wishes. I started to use this cake image (love it, by the way!) several times since I first got this set, but I haven’t been able to make it work the way I wanted. Every time I’ve tried to use it, though, I’ve consistently stamped it in Mint Macaron. I just scanned the catalog, sure that maybe a project in there inspired my consistent pairing of this cake and Mint Macaron, but no – the cake is shown in yellow in the catalog. Not sure where that came from, but I have to say it’s yummy. 🙂 I used my Misti to stamp the entire image in Mint Macaron before inking the cake stand in Island Indigo. This great tool allowed me to get it EXACTLY where I wanted it.
- More Blues. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been making a lot of blue cards lately – Pool Party, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy. Today’s project uses more aqua blues, but there’s also a lot of white in this card to help balance them out a bit. If you like this combination of colors, feel free to save this:
- Party Pants. I love the pairing of this sentiment from Party Pants set with this cake from Party Wishes. What a great set! There are so many wonderful sentiments – and each fits perfectly inside a balloon from the Birthday Bouquet punch. But you don’t HAVE to put the sentiments in the balloon – I won’t tell you what you need to do, but I will tell you that you want this stamp set. Better yet – it’s a BONUS with a $50 purchase. Yippee! Check out all the great images and sentiments from the set:
THERE’S EVEN MORE: I’ve shared a second post about this card with lots more information and a fun graphic to showcase the products used on this card. You can see it here.
