I love sharing my Global Design Project cards with you each and every Monday. What an incredible group we’ve created – and the participation has been amazing (so many amazing cards!). This week’s theme is “Thank You” – and I’ve created a clean and simple card with an adorable terrarium with my Stampin’ Up! products. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Build-a-Terrarium. Tiny plants and succulents have been really trendy in the paper crafting world for a couple of years – several stamp companies have promoted adorable build-your-own-terrarium stamp sets , but we don’t have anything like that at Stampin’ Up!. Who doesn’t want to create an adorable terrarium with sweet, tiny plants? As I was performing my daily review of my current stamp sets, I laughed at how one of the flowers in Flowering Fields looks like it has little artichokes on it. A couple of creative punches and a little bit of stamping and coloring, and I turned this stamp into an adorable terrarium. Here’s the Sale-a-Bration set I used for my project:
- Tiny Thanks. What better to pair with this adorable, teeny terrarium than this sentiment from One Big Meaning? Well, there’s actually a big thanks behind this card – our design team members wanted to send our cards to stampers who have been playing along with our challenges. What a fun idea! My card is currently making its way to Maine (USA) to thank my friend Dawn MacKay at Stamping Peace for her continuous participation in our challenge and for her friendship. Dawn has been featured as a winner in our challenge, but it’s the fact that she always plays along that makes me most grateful. I hope this little card means a lot to Dawn.
- Staying Neutral. I am a fan of all colors, but there’s something really special about a very earthy color combination. This collection of browns and greens makes me very happy. They are so serene! If you like these colors, too, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Flowering Fields, One Big Meaning Papers: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Whisper White Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black Archival, Stampin’ Write Markers (Old Olive) Accessories: Ovals Collection Framelits, Cupcake Builder punch (handle on dome), Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the AMAZING cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
