It’s time for another CASE the Designer Challenge with the Global Design Project. There are so many places to find inspiration for the projects 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 sweet Petal Palette project by Stesha Bloodhart, my super-talented friend.
Here’s my card for this CASE the Designer challenge:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:If you’d like to read more about Stesha’s project, click here to see her original post..
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.
Stesha’s project inspired to create a sweet thank you card with Petal Palette bundle. Like Stesha, I also kept a clean layout for my card, positioned these gorgeous flowers along the left side of the card. A clean-and-simple thank you note – what great inspiration!
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Petal Palette Bundle. I couldn’t love the Petal Palette Bundle more than I do. The beautiful, watercolored design is perfect for almost any occasion – weddings, thank yous, birthdays and just because. Does just because count as an occasion? For the sake of this post, please consider that it does. When Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog was first released, I knew that this bundle of flowers, a bird and some amazing sentiments would top my list of must-haves. I’m still as excited about it today as I was when I first saw the Occasions Catalog. Here’s a peak at this chic and stylish bundle:
- A Little Tutti-Frutti. I absolutely love the Tutti-Frutti 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and reach for it often. Not only is this pack of paper perfect for sugar-sweet projects that celebrate fruity goodness, but there are also patterns that work with other color schemes. There are 13 colors listed in the product listing for this pack of papers, but Crumb Cake is not one of them. That’s A-OK by me because this page of diagonal stripes works beautifully on my project. Here’s a look at the fun (and classic) patterns and colors in the Tutti-Frutti 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:
- Layers. Sometimes simple layers can be so effective. My card is quite simple, but I love how the layers build – from a solid Crumb Cake Layer to a Crumb Cake & Whisper White layer to a Whisper White layer. Sometimes I feel sweet and want to share the measurements for my layers. Here they are, working from the base to the top of the card:
- Crumb Cake – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″)
- Basic Black – 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″
- Tutti-Frutti 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
- Basic Black – 3-7/8″ x 2-5/8″
- Whisper White – 3-3/4″ X 2-1/2″
- Crumb Cake – Petals & More Thinlits Dies
