Global Design Project

Hi Everyone,

I've made a card for the Global Design Project challenge (#GDP014) and this week the theme is a sketch.

Of course I used Stampin' Up products and this was my creation.

I used Mint Macaron cardstock for the base card and the layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top.  My main topper was made from the grey cardstock from the Neutrals pack and I embossed this with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I lighted coated the embossing with white ink.

I made the trees from the Peaceful Pines set using Soft Sky and Elegant Eggplant inks.  I used the Perfect Pines framelits to cut out the trees.  I popped the middle tree up using dimensionals.

The Stars Confetti Punch was used for the top of the card and my sentiment was from the Happy Scenes stamp set, cut with the Bitty Banners, which fit perfectly.  I stamped this with the Elegant Eggplant ink.

And now for a side view

How about a close up!

Happy Crafting,

My Take on Sketch Saturday

Happy Saturday Crafters,

This morning I have been crafting away in my craft room with the Christmas music on full blast!  You can't beat a bit of Jim Reeves to get you in the Christmassy mood!  Sketch Saturday have a brand new challenge up so I thought I would join in and this is the sketch.

This is what I made, using mostly Stampin' Up products as I've recently become a demonstrator.

I started with a 7" card blank in white and layered up some navy card and then white glimmer paper on top.  It's super sparkly and perfect for Christmas.  My light blue layer is embossed with the Softly Falling Stampin' Up embossing folder.  I added a strip of white glimmer paper and topped this with a piece of navy paper that had been punched with the Stars Confetti Punch from SU.  My ovals were cut and embossed using Spellbinders Classic Ovals.  I used the Cozy Christmas stamp, in Soft Sky, set for my sentiment and added some stars for the finishing touch.

Now for a close-up of the sparkle!

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