Move Me Framelits for GDP096

Woo Hoo!  It’s time for another CASE the Designer Challenge with the Global Design Project.  There are so many places to find inspiration for the project we make.  I love the opportunity to create a project that’s inspired by the art of my fellow team members on GDP – always a joy!  This week we are CASEing a gorgeous Dragonfly Dreams project by Tanja Kolar, a talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Germany.  Here’s my card:Move Me Thinlits, Oh So Eclectic, Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, GDP096And here’s the banner for the Global Design Project challenge that inspired my card:If you want to read more about Tanja’s beautiful card on her blog (and if you are fluent in German), CLICK HERE.

When we CASE (Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit), we find inspiration in a project – theme, color combinations, layout, products used – and create our own project by making changes to make it our own.  When CASEing, it’s important to give credit to the original designer – it doesn’t take away from your project at all.  I created a clean and crisp card using the same layout as Tanja – and I added a beautiful, flying insect.  Who doesn’t love flying insects?

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • You Move Me.  Have you seen this butterfly before?  It’s beautiful, right?  The butterfly is a part of the Move Me Thinlits that coordinate with the You Move Me stamp set.  The butterfly is composed of a Thinlit that cuts out the intricate designs on the butterfly’s wings and a Framelit that cuts out the border of the butterfly.  Move Me Thinlits, Oh So Eclectic, Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, GDP096Here’s a look at this You Move Me bundle:

    You Move Me Bundle, Stampin’ Up!

    This bundle is quite amazing – you can create images that appear to flutter as you slide them past a magic window.  Sounds crazy, I know.  Here’s a look at Stampin’ Up!’s fun video that shows you how this bundle works:

  • Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  While I showcased the butterfly on a 2-1/2″ square of Soft Sky that mimics the color of the card base, it’s the larger 3-1/2″ square of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper that really pops on this card.  I adore the watercolored circles – such an artistic look for very little work.  The colors are gorgeous, and I couldn’t wait to work with them.  Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in this wonderful pack of papers:  Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!If you love this paper as much as I do, be sure to check out my suggested color combinations for Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper – you can see it here.
  • Great Color Combination.  I pulled the colors for this card straight from the page of Designer Series Paper I featured in the design.  Easy!  I love this combination of greens and blue.  So soft and sweet.  If you like this combination, too, please save this:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy
