Weather Together - Global Design Project

#GDP042

It's Monday again, which means another challenge for the Global Design Project. This week is a sketch challenge and I'm using another new and fun stamp set called Weather Together. The umbrella is perfect for today here in Kiama as it's a bit bleak, wet and cold. However, I wanted to make my thank you card bright and happy for a very special some who gives me so much love.



Now head on over to the Global Design Project and be inspired by our amazing Design Team. Every week they blow me away with their talent!

Wreaths are so on trend at the moment. Last week I did a wreath card, a very quick and simple one using the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Kit. This week I create one using the leaves, stems and flowers from the new Jar of Love set - and I'm quite happy with the result.

This wreath may look a little difficult, however with the matching Everyday Jar framelits it came together quite quickly. I punched a 2.5'' white circle and glued all the leaf elements around the circle, leaving the flowers until last. I raised the circle up on dimensionals and used my Melon Mambo Marker to add a few dots around the outside to finish it off.


The next stop is the talented and ever so lovely, Rhoda Macpherson. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

CASEing Shawn de Oliveira - Global Design Project

#GDP040

A very short and sweet post from me today, I'm about to run out the door as we speak to spend some times with the kids. I've missed them while we have been away and last weekend the weather was crazy we spent the weekend indoors, so I'm doing my 'Motherly' duties and heading to the skatepark!

This week we have 'CASE the Designer' and we being inspired by our amazingly talented Design Team Member, Shawn de Oliveira.
I love Shawn's clean look and blue base and took my inspiration from his card layout and chose to turn it on its side, with ribbon along the bottom. 



I am totally IN LOVE with the new Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper! You will see me use it again soon and may even use it for some decor items - stay tuned! The pineapple is from the new stamp set Pop of Paradise and the sentiment is from Floral Phrases


Now head on over to the Global Design Project and see how each of us interpreted Shawn's card this week. Even Shawn himself has to CASE his own card - and it's another beauty!

This card was so quick and simple to make because I used the new and super gorgeous
Project Life Hello Lovely Card Collection - it's really the shining star of this project!
I finished it off with the 'birthday' banner from one of the new Hostess sets, Time of Year.
