Stampin' Up! - Thanks for being you

Hi Crafters,

I'm back with another entry for the Global Design Project challenge blog.  This week is all about being thankful with a theme of thank you.

This a great challenge as everyone will think of something different and this is my entry:

I started with Mint Macaron cardstock and made a bespoke card blank.  I embossed a piece of pink card from the Love Blossoms card pack using the Fluttering embossing folder.  I covered this with a piece of Stampin Up vellum which is superb quality and embosses like a dream.  To create the top and bottom panels, I used the Birthday Bouquet designer paper series and cut the edge with the Large Scallop Edgelit die.  

For my sentiment I stamped onto Whisper White card in Pink Pirouette and Mint Macaron using stamp sets - Blooming Love and Suite Sayings.  My sentiment is also popped up using Dimensionals.  I layered three of the butterflies from the Butterfly and Bold Butterfly thinlits to give extra dimension.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Happy crafting,

Stampin' Up Crafting - #GDP026


I recently signed up as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator and really love their products.  The stamps are so versatile and the matching dies make life so much easier.  The Global Design Project challenge this week features a sketch and I've made a card to join in.

This is the sketch:

I've made a new baby themed card and here is my entry:

I started with a Crumb Cake card blank and used a piece of Whisper White card to stamp the Brushstrokes background stamp in Soft Sky.  My main image is stamped using the Something for Baby set in Daffodil Delight and I used the matching dies called Baby's First.  My sentiment is from a set called Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I love this set as it covers every occasion.  I cut it out with the Bitty Banners die set, another favourite and mounted with Stamping Dimensionals.  Finally, I added three white star sequins to complete my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
