What an amazing week of projects at the Global Design Project last week! Y’all really showed up with some beautiful work. Thank you to all of those who participated – and a special thank you to all of those who CASEd my project. I loved every one of them!
This week’s GDP color challenge features three gorgeous colors – Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo. I needed a “thinking of you” card for a friend who’s going through a rough patch. Nothing says “I’m here for you” like a warm blanket and a beautiful card. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Christmas Quilt Bundle. If the Christmas Quilt Bundle (which includes the Quilt Builder Framelits) isn’t on the top of your wish list from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, then you don’t yet have a wish list. I’ve used this set twice (click here to see my first project with this bundle). Funny that neither of my projects has a “Christmas feel.” Here’s a look at this new bundle (if you click on the picture below, you can see other samples and a video with this new bundle):
- Intricate Details. I love the patterns and details in these Quilt Builder Dies. I used three of the dies in this versatile collection to build my quilt pattern. First I used the star-shaped image in the lower left of the picture above with Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo cardstock. This die doesn’t cut anything – it adds stitched lines to the pattern I then cut with the Framelits dies in the bottom, right corner of the picture above. To create the Night of Navy frame in which these pieces are glued, I cropped the die in the lower, right corner AND included the slightly larger square at the same time. This gave me the perfect fame I wanted. I glued all of these pieces on a Whisper White square and layered from there.
While we are talking about details, the little heart came from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch – what an adorable little heart!
- Crumb Cake, Anyone? I love these colors – the sweet pink, the bright blue and the dark blue are perfect together. I needed one more color, though, to complete the balance of this card. One of my go-to colors in this situation is Crumb Cake, a neutral that works with everything. I didn’t add too much Crumb Cake – just enough to tone down the colors a bit. Also, I like cake.
