Papillon Potpourri by Stampin’ Up! #GDP045

I’m back with a super quick post today! I’m entering the Colour Challenge over at Global Design Project and I’m using Papillon Potpourri by Stampin’ Up! I haven’t used this stamp set in a while, so it was nice to get it out and ink it up for this challenge!


I love this colour combination! My instant thought was to make the card that I am entering, but for some reason, I started fiddling around with other designs. Non of which turned out the way I wanted, so eventually I reverted back to the original idea of using Papillon Potpourri by Stampin’ Up! of course!

I like my card but I don’t think it’s a winner this week, which is a shame (or probably a blessing really)! The Global Design Project team have announced that from this week, they will pick one of the winners of the challenge to be a guest designer on the next colour challenge!


It’s absolutely great fun being a guest on the design team. I had the honour once and I would love to do it again! Why don’t you join in and give it a go! You never know, you could be the next winner!

Touches of Texture from Stampin’ Up! Colour Challenge for #GDP041


I’m back today with a card I’ve made for the Global Design Challenge colour challenge this week. I’m using Touches of Texture from Stampin’ Up! I know this stamp set is going to become a firm favourite along with Timeless Texture and Gorgeous Grunge for background stamping. But, you can also use Touches of Texture as the star of the show, as I’ve done with my card. I found the colours a little challenging (ahem no pun intended!) again this week. I am determined to persevere and conquer this colour challenge phobia of mine though!

I decided to use Sweet Sugarplum for the card base. Then I went with a mat of Night of Navy underneath the Whisper White card front. Once I had decided on that combination, it seemed to make sense to stamp the background splatter in Sweet Sugarplum and use Night of Navy for the focal image.

I also stamped onto the card base using Sweet Sugarplum and decided I like the layers off-kilter too. I’m not 100% happy with it, but I can’t put my finger on why not? What do you think?

I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts. I’ve severely depleted my stock of thank you cards this month with all the orders from the new catalogue, so you will probably be seeing a load more thank you cards from me for a while, as I build it back up again!

Well that’s it from me. Do pop over to the Global Design Challenge and take a look at what the super talented design team have come up with! They are all amazing!
