Global Design Project 080 | Case the Designer

I'm back for another Global Design Project Challenge! This week, we are CASE-ing the talented Louise Sharp! You can click her gorgeous project below to learn more about this challenge.



The first thing I noticed about this card was that bright pop of Real Read contrasted with subtle Soft Sky. I immediately thought "retro", so this card inspired me to go for the retro look, and I just LOVE how it turned out!




I have been using my burlap ribbon a ton lately - I just can't get enough! I especially love the shabby chic look of the ribbon rolled up and secured with a staple or two. You can use your linen thread to gather the tail end of your ribbon for the perfect finishing touch. I love the gentle curl of the Linen Thread - it really gives your project a whimsical feel, don't you think?


Follow along with me as I make this card on my video!









Here are the paper dimensions for this card:


  • Crumb Cake card base = 4 1/4" x 11
  • Very Vanilla card front = 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  • Real Red layer = 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Soft Sky tag = 4" x 2" (finished - after the tag topper has been punched)
  • Real Red strip = 1 1/4" x 4"

And as promised, if you click the prize wheel below, you'll get all the details for my $100 Stampin' Shopping Spree.

Enjoy Your Special Day!

Whew! I have been so incredibly busy in these last few days of Sale-a-Bration - I love it!!! I am finally here with another project sheet for you featuring another bright and happy card!



This card was so much fun to make. I love it when I can add an interesting background using my stamps, and I'm especially in love with the subtle look of the duplicate color on color look! I know I'm going to be using that idea for a lot more cards. This card was one of the options at a card buffet I put on with my demonstrator friend Cathy this past weekend, and it was really popular. The ladies loved the idea of breaking up that sentiment - it definitely gives some variety within your stamp sets!




So...gather your supplies! Here is your card recipe:


Stampin’ Up! Supplies:


  • STAMPS – Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (144728), Balloon Adventures (142823)
  • PAPER – So Saffron (105118), Basic Black (121045)
  • INK – Basic Black (140931), So Saffron (126957)
  • OTHER – Sunshine Wishes Dies (141489), Basic Black Metallic Thread (141695), Big Shot Machine (143263), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Fine Tip Glue Pen (138309), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Stampin’ Trimmer (126889), Paper Snips (103579)
Cutting & Scoring:  


  • So Saffron – 4 ¼” x 11”, score and fold at 5 ½”; 3 ¾” x 5”; scrap
  • Basic Black – 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”; Scraps
Instructions:


  • Using So Saffron, stamp the solid bee from the Dragonfly Dreams set in a random pattern on the So Saffron card front
  • Adhere So Saffron card front to Basic Black piece
  • Die cut the flower from the Sunshine Wishes Dies and the Bee from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets in Basic Black & adhere to the card front
  • Wrap the Metallic Black Thread around the layered card front 5 times and secure with tape on the back
  • Stamp your sentiment in basic black on a scrap of So Saffron – snip around each word to separate them.
  • Adhere the snipped words to scraps of Basic Black and snip to frame each So Saffron piece. Attach the layered words to the card front using dimensionals
  • Adhere card front to card base
  • Stamp the inside of your card with the solid bee in So Saffron diagonally across the card.
  • In Basic Black, stamp the birthday sentiment in the middle of the inside of the card (over the diagonal bees)
