Global Design Project - 'Sketch Challenge' #gdp074

I love a Sketch Challenge! And how lovely is this one?
This weeks Global Design Project #gdp074

I didn't have the opportunity to make my creation in time for Valentine's Day, but it's perfect for an Anniversary card or an everyday, anytime 'I love you' card...


Using my favourite 'Crumb Cake' cardstock as the base, I built my banner from the 'Tags & Labels Framelits Dies'.

The loveliest of embellishments; the patterned wooden heart from the 'Sending Love Embellishments' & coordinating 'Sending Love Glassine Sheets'. The divine 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies', some 'Gold Glimmer Paper' and 'Linen Thread'.

How to make the embossed heart background using the 
Rub an 'Embossing Buddy' over the cardstock prior to embossing.
Brayer the raised hearts within the TIEF with the 'Versamark Pad', and place the 'Whisper White' cardstock into the folder. 
Press onto the folder using your hand to imprint the Versamark onto the cardstock, not necessarily making an impression of the hearts.
Cover the hearts with 'Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder' and melt the powder with the 'Heat Tool'.

Thankyou for visiting. See you next week.

'Get Well Soon' - Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight

 Welcome to my blog! Kylie Bertucci has gathered an amazing bunch of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for a Blog Highlight.
And you can VOTE for my creation!!! The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here.

http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/02/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html

And while I am at it, I have also created for Colour INKspiration Challenge #CI03 using Marina Mist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede, Whisper White & Soft Sky.



I have used the 'Weather Together' Bundle for my 'Get Well Soon' creation...

 I made this card for my niece who had Emergency appendectomy. Poor possum! She has made an incredible recovery with only 2 days off school, recuperated over the weekend and back to school this week.

I waterwashed the 'Shimmery White' cardstock with 'Marina Mist' & 'Soft Sky' ink and my 'Aqua Painter', giving the slightest hint of blue for the background. The clouds are made from Vellum, outlined with Marina Mist. And on the inside some Peekaboo Peach washi tape from the 'Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape' pack.

A little detail with machine stitching in the corners, and one of the die cut hearts. And some 'Linen Thread' to attach the bannered sentiment.

Thankyou so much for visiting my blog. I have loved having you here. Don't forget to visit Kylie's blog:
Have an amazing day! D x

Global Design Project - 'Colour' Challenge #gdp073

OK. Here we go... 
I am this weeks Guest Designer for the Global Design Project 'Colour Challenge' #gdp073!!!
So honoured and excited to be chosen by the GDP Team and to be here with these beautiful and amazingly talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world.

How bright and beautiful are this weeks colours? This is the little something I created...

Where to start? What to create? 
I know! Let's open my brand new 'Celebrate Everyday Project Life Card Collection'. All the colours I need are right there, and this card collection is so versatile and so is the coordinating 'Accessory Pack'.


I have used the 'Cottage Greetings' stampset for my sentiment. The font is so beautiful, and it fits perfectly inside the heart. The little spray of flowers, and the 'Emerald Envy Solid Baker's Twine' are a bit gorgeous too. I love the little details.


Check out this Stampin' Up! YouTube video showcasing the 'Celebrate Everyday Project Life Card Collection & Accessory Pack'.

And you could totally be the next Guest Designer. Yes, you! Go on and have a go at creating for this weeks Challenge using Daffodil Delight, Emerald Envy & Watermelon Wonder. It's so much fun, and you have plenty of time to get your craft on.


Thankyou so much for visiting, and again to the incredible GDP Team for this wonderful opportunity. See you all next week.
