#GDP037 - Colour Challenge


Admired, respected & loved....that's you.

Welcome to my blog.

Today I am blogging my card made for the Global Design Project team. This weeks challenge is based around color. You can see the colors that the team have chosen below. Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe & Island Indigo.


I chose for this card a more manly theme. I haven't made a male orientated card for a while, so I was excited. I used 'The Wilderness Awaits' &  'Lovely As A Tree' stamp sets. 

Here is my card

Admired, respected loved....

Before I started stamping on my Very Vanilla cardstock, I made masks of my images to help me create the scene. I then colored the scene using Tip Top Taupe, Island Indigo & Mint Macaron ink pads with my aqua painter. I added Gold Wink of Stella to the deer antlers.
I cut the stamped scene down to size using the Layering Squares thinlits. I also made the scalloped frame using the same thinlits set & backed it all with Tip Top Taupe cardstock. I had some Mint Macaron Birthday Bouquet DSP that I used as my background, which I backed with Island Indigo cardstock with Tear and Tape adhesive. 
I mounted almost everything using Stampin' Dimensionals, so the card has lots of layers.

Using the sentiment from 'The Wilderness Awaits' stamp set, I stamped with Mint Macaron onto Tip Top Taupe & then cut into little strips. Adding a small edge cut from the Burlap ribbon as an added accent under the last sentiment strip 'That's You'. I topped it all of with some Tip Top Taupe leaves stamped onto Very Vanilla, from the 'Lovely As A Tree' stamp set.

For the inside of this card, I used Very Vanilla.
I repeated the stamped leaves in Tip Top Taupe on two corners, leaving plenty of space for a personal message.


 The Layered Squares thinlits will be available from June 1st in the new catty.
Everything else I have used is available now & will also be in the upcoming catalog. I hope everyone has there copy.
If you haven't got your copy of the 2017-2017 catty please e-mail me with your postal details to kocreationshandmadecards@gmail.com & I will organize with you to have one sent.
