Sneak Peeks – Thankful Thoughts & Playful Backgrounds from Stampin’ Up!

Sneak Peeks – Thankful Thoughts & Playful Backgrounds from Stampin’ Up! Global Design Project #GDP032

It’s Global Design Project challenge time with #GDP032 Case the Designer. This week it’s the turn of the fabulously talented Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design team member Krista Frattin. Spoiler Alert! I’ve used Thankful Thoughts & Playful Backgrounds from Stampin’ Up! which are both new stamp sets coming in the next annual catalogue in June!


This is Krista’s beautiful card that everyone is casing this week! She’s certainly a tough act to follow that’s for sure!

Thankful Thoughts & Playful Backgrounds from Stampin' Up! Global Design Project Tracy May #GDP032


I used most of the different elements from Krita’s card in my version, but changed the card to portrait and added some ink splats from Timeless Textures to break up the white a little. The stripes are from the new photopolymer stamp set Playful Backgrounds and the sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts new sentiment stamp set.

So what do you think? I keep thinking I should have left it landscape, but then I’m never satisfied!! Anyway, I love playing along with the Global Design Project challenges. They are great fun! You should give them a go! I was one of the winners last week, with this card, woohoo!  😃😘😍That was a huge surprise and I didn’t realise until I got a couple of comments on my blog post congratulating me! Yeah I know – I’m useless aren’t I? Lol! 😉
