This week’s “Show Me the Sunshine” theme at the Global Design Project challenge had me reaching for yellow. What a perfect opportunity to break into my 2018-2020 In Colors cardstock pack! A panel of Pineapple Punch really brings the sunshine for this sweet card. Here’s my card for this week’s GDP challenge:
- Two Sneak Peeks. Not only does this card feature that bold, bright panel of Pineapple Punch (I’m SO going to love this color!), but it features a lovely sentiment from a great, new stamp set called Detailed with Love that demonstrators who attended OnStage were able to pre-order. Yay! Here’s a look at this sweet, new stamp set: How beautiful are these sentiments?! And here’s another look at Pineapple Punch: That color really packs a punch, don’t you think? [pun intentional] I introduced the new In Colors in a post last weekend – you can see it here.
- All that Shine. You might not be able to tell from the first picture of this card, but the “splattering” above the sentiment is stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. My original idea was to just stamp with Pineapple Punch, but the silver really adds something special here. I stamped the image of leaves from Sheltering Tree, masking the bottom of the card base below the band. I love the effect they give on this bright yellow panel. Here’s a look at the shine: And here’s a look at Sheltering Tree – I’ve used those leaves on more cards for texture than I have used them for leaves:
- Color Combination. There’s something really special about the combination of yellow and gray. I’ve often times paired Daffodil Delight with grays, so I thought it would certainly work with Pineapple Punch. I LOVE the outcome. If you are inspired by this combination of Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Detailed with Love, Sheltering Tree Papers: Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Thick Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black, VersaMark Accessories: Pretty Label Punch, Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
