Wonderful Fall #GDP159

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Global Design Project challenge is a cute seasonal theme; the design team have made some very varied projects as inspiration. You can see them here.

I have chosen to work with Colourful Seasons.

I created a heart shaped mask from post it note paper.

Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz inks were used to stamp the three different leaf images from the set.

The sentiment was taken from Rooted in Nature. I used the Stamparatus to ensure a crisp impression.

A few sequins completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Good Morning Everybody.,

Welcome to another entry for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jen B.

The design team have made some great inspirational projects. You can see them here

I have used Country Lane Designer Series Paper to make my panels.

Some striped Burlap ribbon is lying behind the panels to add to the country theme.

I then used my favourite bundle, Rooted in Nature to stamp and Die cut some leaves.

The sentiment is from the same set and cut apart to go across each panel.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Sorry…

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s make is a clean and Simple card.

I began by embossing a white card base with the brand new Swirls and Curls embossing folder. The folder was not rolled through all the way, resulting in the bottom of the card remaining flat.

The word “sorry” was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with copper powder.

The partner sentiment was added with Early Espresso ink.

The tree was inked with Cajun Craze, a sponge was used to add some Early Espresso to the trunk. The image was die cut and adhered using mini dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Look out for more Autumn Winter catalogue sneek peeks ahead of next week’s launch.

Good Afternoon,

I thought I would pop an extra post up today using my beloved Rooted in Nature stamp set and matching Designer Series Paper.

A 3 inch strip of paper was adhered to a white card base.

The colours, Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Cajun Craze were selected to match the paper.

The tree rings were fussy cut and positioned to the left hand side popped up on dimensionals.

Mint Macaron ink was used to stamp the tree. This was die cut and layered over the top. Double dimensionals were used to support the right hand side.

Finally, the sentiment was stamped with Cajun Craze Ink and fussy cut. Multipurpose glue was used to add this to the tree rings.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

For All You Do

Good Morning Everybody,

I have revisited one of my favourite bundles in the Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue today… The stunning Rooted in Nature and Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

The card base was prepared using Tranquil Tide card stock. I picked out a coordinating patterned paper from the Nature’s Poem collection and adhered that to the front.

I love the combination of Tranquil Tide and Blackberry Bliss, so I added a 2 inch strip across the card towards the bottom.

Coordinating inks were used to stamp the trees and these were Die cut. These were then arranged on the card and secured with snail and dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and added to the bottom of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Thinking of You – Just Add Ink #418

Good Morning Everybody!

Today I am sharing my entry for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.

The design team have made some great inspirational projects. You can see them here!

I found this set of colours tricky… The Daffodil Delight is very bright compared to the other colours in the palette.

This is what I created.

I decided to use Daffodil Delight designer series paper for the background. A 4 inch square was cut diagonally, each portion being adhered into the corners of a Whisper White card base.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to add some leaves to the gap.

I wanted a bold sentiment. I picked out “thinking of you” from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set. This was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and cut with a 2-1/4 inch circle punch.

Three flowers from the Pop of Petals stamp set were stamped with Blushing Bride ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

I used the Leaf punch to cut three sets of leaves from Soft Sea Foam card stock.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed below.

Good Morning!

Here’s a fun sketch challenge from Linda this week ….

See all the inspiration from the design team here!

This is what I have created.

I couldn’t resist using the Rooted in Nature bundle and coordinating designer series paper.

I began by adding a 1-1/4 inch strip down the left hand side with snail adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped in position using Blackberry Bliss ink.

The leaves were stamped with the same ink and die cut. These were then arranged on the card.

Really simple card, but looks amazing.

This week’s Wednesday challenge from the Global Design Team is to “case the designer”. Charley has made this great card… What would you make?

The rest of the design team have made some fantastic samples which you can see here!

This is my design, combining Rooted in Nature, Wood Textures and Accented Blooms.

2-1/2 inch strips of Wood Textures and Nature’s Poem designer series papers were adhered to a Whisper White card base.

The Pearl Doily was substituted for the large tree ring image from Rooted in Nature. This was fussy cut and added to the card with dimensionals.

A scrap of Whisper White card stock was stamped with the gorgeous tree using Tranquil Tide ink. The corners were rounded with the Detailed Trio punch.

The Tailored Tag punch was used to cut the sentiment which was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.

Make Me Proud

Hello Everyone,

My absolute favourite colour from the new release has got to be Blackberry Bliss – just love it!

So today’s project is made entirely in this colour – well except the Whisper White to stamp on.

I randomly stamped the leaves using first, second and third generation ink.

Some Nature’s Twine was wrapped around this panel which was then adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped and trimmed down to size. The corners were rounded with the Detailed Trio punch.

A tree from the Rooted in Nature stamp set was die cut and added to the card.

To finish the card, I added some faceted dots.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

You are Wonderful #GDP141

Good Morning Everyone,

The Global Design Project this week has a colour challenge going on.

The Design Team have created some stunning samples that can be seen here!

I thought these colours were very autumnal, so I pulled out the Rooted in Nature stamp set.

I opted to use Rich Razzleberry as the base for the card.

A white layer was embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder.

Three leaves were stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and die cut.

Three squares were also die cut from white card stock, these could also be cut using a trimmer.

The sentiment was stamped with Real Red ink and trimmed down to get an even border.

The elements were arranged on the front of the card and secured with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thinking of You #GDP140

Good Morning Everyone!

This week the Global Design Project team are casing this wonderful card from Brian King.

You can see all their cards here!

This is my interpretation using the new Rooted in Nature bundle.

A piece of Whisper White card stock was cut to 3 by 4-3/4 inches.

The bottom portion was stamped with leaves using second generation Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron inks.

The sentiment was added over top with black ink.

The Rooted in Nature dies include some elements that will emboss rather the cut. The coordinating stamped leaves were embossed with the Big Shot.

The panel was adhered to some Soft Suede card stock. This was then added to a Tranquil Tide card base using dimensionals.

The beautiful tree as stamped twice with Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut. The lighter image was adhered flat, the other was raised using mini dimensionals.

As a final touch, some Grapefruit Grove twine was added to the tree trunk.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below, and available from 1st June.
