Global Design Project #032



Global Design Project #032 

Case the Designer

Well I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever blog hop so much I thought I would try my hand at a Global Design Project (GDP) so I popped on over to the site to see what they were planning for this weeks project and found they were casing Krista Frattin



WOW I fell in love with this ladies style!!
I had a peek at all the other designers take on this beautiful card and thought You can do this just 
GO FOR IT!
So I did :)

Here is my card

'For You'

#GDP032 #Birthdayblooms #Timelesstextures #KOCreationscards


How I made 'FOR YOU' :
  • I cut my card front to 11.5cm x 16.5cm and made each layer 2 millimeters larger. Te card base is cut at 12cm x 17cm.
  • I sponged Blushing bride ink using the Stampin' sponge onto Whisper white, firstly spritzing the paper with water so the ink blended nicely.
  • I then use Whisper White ink with the Timeless textures wood grain stamp then embossed over the top.
  • I stamped the large rose from Birthday Blooms and proceeded to colour & blend. I then stamped again using my versa mark embossing ink and embossed. This makes the fussy cutting much easier and helps the item not to tear.
  • I stamped the sentiment using Versa mark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder.
  • I put dimensionals behind the leaves and small flowers but NOT behind the largest centre flower. 
  • I used my elegant butterfly punch to punch out my butterflies in silver foil & the Birthday Bouquet pink stripe sheet. I also punched out some confetti hearts too :)
  • I layered Blushing Bride and silver foil behind the Whisper White card front & used Whisper White cardstock again at the base.
I hope you enjoyed my creating efforts today & thank you so much for stopping by.

    1. Thank you Lynn, So happy you found a useful tip on my blog. I always make more background pieces than I actually require and play with texture til I find something I love. I will use the other background hopefully today. I don't know many adults who doesn't enjoy or love colouring I think it's a leftover remnant from our childhood :)
