Around the World

This is the first time that I've participated in the Global Design Project - YAY!! I've used some of their ideas for inspiration in the past, but this the first time that I've actually linked to their page with my project.


Still playing with Blooms & Bliss (I hope you're not tired of it yet, because there's more next week and I haven't even STARTED on the pink patterns!), our task on the GDP website was to CASE (copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit - depending on who you ask) the Designer. I chose the layout as my jumping off point and created the card you see above.

The base is Mint Macaron and I added a layer of Island Indigo before adding the Blooms and Bliss DSP.

The balloons are from Balloon Celebration, a set that was available in the Occasions Catalogue earlier this year but that carried over into the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue - which I'm happy about because now I get to play with it for a WHOLE YEAR!! And the very BEST part is that it comes with a coordinating punch to make creating dozens of balloons a snap!


Check out that bling! I didn't think I'd like the new metallic thread, but I think I'm in LOVE! I used the gold for these cards and now Stampin' UP! has added copper and black to the collection - WOOHOO!! It adds just a subtle touch of shimmer to the card and it's just perfect when you want "just a little".

On Thursday, I showed you the Sunburst Card I created for PPA and since I had some leftover pieces of triangular DSP, I added some to the inside of the card:


Who says all your lines have to be straight?
