#GDP015 – Theme:Celebration

Hi,

I can’t believe Christmas is this Friday…  Where has the time gone?

I have been meaning to make two cards all this week and finally got around to it at 10pm the night before this weeks Global Design Project challenge finishes… But it is first for me that I made a card and blogged about it on the same day.

I actually made two cards with this challenge in mind.

Here is the first card:

 

LM16-BC001

So this is for one of my family who birthday is three days after christmas.  I have been dying to use the new It’s My Party Designer Series Paper and the Party Wishes Stamp Set.  I also wanted to try the Envelope Punch Board Flower that was demonstrated on the Stampin’ Up! YouTube channel early last month.  I added in the sentiment in the centre of the flower using Melon Mambo.  I really like how it turned out.  I added a banner in Sahara Sands behind it, added a cupcake stamp also using Sahara Sands Ink.

Here is the Second Card:

LM15-CC010

So this one I went a bit crazy with the envelope punch board flower.  I think I used all the circle collection framelits except the smallest 2.  The Designer Series Paper and Vellum is from the Winter Wonderland Suite.  The snowflake in the middle of the flower is the negative from the Oh, What Fun Tag Kit and put a small circle of Gold Glimmer paper behind that.  I also added on a Reindeer Paper Clip (this is the first time I am using it) and Gold Cording Trim.

Due to the size of the flower I didn’t want to add in another layered element so I stamped the sentiment straight on to the card.  I lover how this turned out and I think I will be using the Envelope Punch Board to make more flowers.

Here is the Global Design Project inspiration:

Looking forward to next weeks challenge.

Happy Stamping,

Lauren

Hi,

I almost forgot to post my Global Design Project Card for this week…  I spent the night finishing off the christmas decorating with my Mum went to go to sleep and thought ‘oh no, I can’t not post this weeks card’.

Here is my card:

LM15-CC009

I made this card for my Mum and the rest of her work colleagues  to give to their boss for Christmas.

About the card:

I have been dying to use the Silent Night paper from the Home for Christmas designer series paper but didn’t want to cut it down to tiny pieces and then not be able to read what it actually says.  I just wanted to get the full effect of this pattern.

I tried using a banner for the sentiment but it wasn’t quite large enough for my liking so changed it to a circle and then was able to add that extra stamp below the sentiment.  I have been loving the snowflake elements and gold cording and used them in so many of my cards.  I of course had to use a little bit of that winter wonderland vellum at the top of the card.

I have never been one for glitter because it sheds and gets everywhere especially after doing 9 and now 10 years of Christmas gift wrapping for charity I know I tend to stay away from it.  But after making up the Oh, What Fun tag kit and also using some gold glitter ribbon to decorate my christmas tree I am warming up to it.  So I had a small section of gold glimmer left over from the tag kit so I managed to die cut a circle from it to add to my card and I love how it turned out.  Added some pearls and called the card done.

I added some stamping to the envelope which I love to do.

Here is the challenge inspiration:

It was such a great challenge I can’t wait to see what next week’s one will be… Oh and before I forget here is couple of photos of my christmas decorations…  And yes there is a lot of lights on that door garland… 200 to be exact… really lights up a dark hallway.

#GDP013

Hi,

Here is my latest card creation… I must say I have been enjoying blogging lately and especially with the Global Design Project giving me different inspirations each week.

So here is my card…

LM15-CC007 copy.jpg

Here is the inspiration…

gdp0132bcolour2bchallenge

About the card…

I knew I wanted to incorporate a circle and I had recently bought the oh what fun tag kit and stamp set so used that as inspiration for the sentiment having part of the sentiment being on popped up on dimensionals.

I also just love the Winter Wonderland Vellum Stack and I was never a ribbon kind of person, until I used the Gold Cording Trim.

Happy Stamping,

Lauren
