Global Design Project 122 – Sketch Challenge

Yes! It has been a while since I’ve posted. I had a nice break over the summer with my family and planned to get back to blogging earlier in the month, however a mini trip to hospital put a spanner in the works! I’m all good now and time to get blogging!

To get the mojo going, I played along with some challenges this past weekend. My first is the sketch challenge for the Global Design Project #gdp122. I love a sketch challenge as you can interpret it any way you like; left, right, round and upside down. lol!

I wanted to have a play with the new shimmery white embossing paste and I used that on the background of this card. I coloured it with a smoky slate re-inker to give it a grey / realistic brick look.

The shimmery white embossing paste is AWESOME! I can’t wait to try it out with loads of other colours. It is a lot more “shimmery” than I anticipated, which I love!!!

This card was a celebratory card for a team member of mine who recently promoted. She’s done a great, persistent job to achieve this milestone. I’m so proud of her and I hope she likes her card!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Don’t forget to pop on over to the Global Design Project page and check out all the other awesome entries for this week’s challenge. I love seeing the diversity of how everyone interprets the same sketch.

Hopefully this post is the start of some regular blogging and challenge fun!

Happy Crafting,

What Will You Stamp? #130 – Mixed Drinks

I’m excited to show you one of my favourite stamp sets in the 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue for What Will You Stamp? this week (#wwys130). This week we’re showcasing the very cool, the very fruity and the very refreshing “Mixed Drinks” stamp set.

This stamp set is so versatile that I chose to create three different cards today using the same layout, but with different stamps from the set. Today I’m showing how you can use this set for many different occasion in your life.

The first card was created to celebrate an achievement; I used the champagne flutes and the “cheers” and “clink” sentiment stamps to create the backgound.

The second card is my favourite! A little bit of tutti fruity as a “just because” card. The cherry and the the fruit slice were used to stamp the background. I stamped “tone on tone” for all the background images.

With Father’s Day in Australia just around the corner, the beer glass was the perfect stamp to create a card for that special man in your life. I used the ice cubes for the background images and stamped the “beer” in Crushed Curry ink.

I added some wink of stella pen to each card to give them a bit of a shimmer and a few rhinestones for some “bling”. I love that I was able to create 3 different cards using the same layout. So quick and easy!

I hope that toady’s creations over at What Will You Stamp? have inspired you to get creating with this refreshing, fun set. Be sure to pop your creation up over on the WWYS blog.

We’ll be back next week with another favourite stamp set of mine! Can’t wait to show you.

Happy Crafting,
