Colour Challenge using Stampin’ Up! Products #CCMC406

Colour Challenge using Stampin’ Up! Products #CCMC406 – Create with Connie & Mary

Yes it’s Thursday and it’s time for a Colour Challenge using Stampin’ Up! Products! This week the challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary (#CCMC406) is to use the colours Crumb Cake/Kraft, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate!

CCMC406

Wow – a difficult combination this time around! I instantly thought masculine card when I saw this combo, but then I stopped and thought about how I could do something a bit more feminine! I think I pulled it off – what do you think?

I thought butterflies work in any colour and decided to create a simple card using an old favourite that I haven’t used in a while! I am very happy to say this set is carrying over to the new catalogue!

Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

Sneak Peek – Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

Ok I’m back after a long weekend off – well not off actually as two little boys require constant supervision! But it was a bank holiday weekend and a post yesterday was just not going to happen! Today’s project is another one for Global Design Challenge (#GDP034) where it’s sketch week! I decided to do a Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Products – a new stamp set – Thankful Thoughts – which I’m sure will soften the blow of losing Another Thank You once I’ve used it a bit more! I’ve stopped using Another Thank You as it’s already sold out on the Retiring List!

So here’s the sketch from the wonderfully talented Teneale Williams.

GDP034 sketchI had some Pacific Point ink left over in a paint palette, so that kind of made the decision for me on colour lol! I started by stamping the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts in Versamark onto watercolour paper and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

I then sprayed the area around the sentiment with water and dropped in the Pacific Point ink. I also splatted some clear Wink of Stella around once the ink was dry and finished off with a few flowers from the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies set, which I think set it off perfectly! Hope you like it!

Head on over to the Global Design Project Challenge and take a look at all the fabulous design team inspiration cards and the fabulous entries from around the world!

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!

GDP032

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! 😉
