Stampin' Up! Colour Combo #GDP041

Hi Crafters,

There is a new challenge over at Global Design Project and this week they want to see us using a favourite colour combination of mine.

These colours really are lovely together and the Sweet Sugarplum is part of the new In Colours 2016-2018.  I went with stamping and butterflies for my card.

I masked off a section of Whisper White cardstock and stamped using Sweet Sugarplum and Night of Navy with the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.  After removing the masking tape, I added three butterflies, using the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches, in matching cardstock, I shaped the wings for dimension.  I created the sentiment with the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Classic Label Punch also in Sweet Sugarplum and Night of Navy Stampin' Ink.

I would like to enter this card into the Global Design Project challenge #041.

Happy crafting,

Global Design Project Challenge Entry - #038 Sketch Challenge


As you may or may not know, I recently signed up as a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I have fallen head over heels in love with their products.  Stampin' Up showcase their products in their annual catalogue which was launched for 2016/17 on 1 June.  There are some really yummy new items and I had a open house party on Saturday to celebrate!  Everybody had loads of fun testing out the new goodies and the Rolo cupcakes went down a treat!

Anyway, the reason I'm here is to post my entry for the latest Global Design Project challenge and this week we have been given a sketch.

I do love a sketch challenge - so many possibilities!  Here is my entry:

My card started with many balloons punched from the Balloon Punch (140609) in two of the new In Colours of cardstock, Dapper Denim (141419) and Flirty Flamingo (141421), along with some punched in silver Glimmer Paper (135314).  I created a channel using one of the new dies from the Swirly Scribbles set (141497) and added my balloons using Tombow wet glue (110755) and Dimensionals (104430).  My sentiment was created using the new Thoughtful Banners bundle which includes a wide variety of greetings stamps and a punch (142330).  I layered up my topper using more of the new cardstock in Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo, adding a touch of Whisper White cardstock (106549) to break up the layers.

If you would like to purchase any of the items above, simply click on my Stampin' Up page and shop as normal.  If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line.

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