Global Design Project 083 | Theme Challenge, Sneak Peak In Colour Stampin Up

Global Design Project 083 | Theme Challenge


Hello There, 
Todays card is for the Global Design Project Challenge Blog HERE, and the theme is Sparkles/Bling.


I couldn't resist both, I decided to Sneak Peak the new In Colour Lemon Lime Twist thats bling in itself, Wow what a Colour, and Bang on trend its just appeared in all the shops from Homeware to Clothes. and coupling this with  another Sneak Peak called Hello Gorgeous and Stamp and Die Bundle.

I used two techniques on this card, to showcase the Ink, Watercolour Effect using watercolour Card Stock and  drenching it with a WaterBrush and then taking the Ink from the Pad itself onto a Clear Block adding water making a wash and then just madly adding it to the Wet Watercolour Paper.




I then heat dried that and then took a Baby Wipe and scrunched it up and dabbed the Ink Pad and then pounced it off the Water Colour Card stock I just painted ,  great effect, Then I took some ink from the Block and soaked in Ink and flicked like mad all over.

I cut the Happy Birthday from the Bundle from Shimmery White as had that same Vannilary (if thats a word) shade and a touch of Sparkle in it.
Hopefully you can see the Sparkle!

Then finished it off with Sequins that match perfectly, and another Sneak Peak Glitter enamel Dots, OMG 160 Sparkly, Adhesive backed Dots in Ombre Shades Yayyyyyyyyyy.......... 

And then if thats not enough Bling and Sparkle I flicked like a Mad Woman Clear and Gold Wink Of Stella, I think by the time I had finished I was covered in it.

If you would like me to do a video on this please do leave a comment..

Freshly Made Sketches #280 


The colours are Denim Dapper and Emerald Envy, very striking together, as well as using the Lift me Up Stamp set I used the Floral Phrases for the sentiment , I trimmed the first part off.. 


The Masking Technique for the Balloons was used on this card.

 I used the 2016-2018 Incolour DSP stack to match the Denim Dapper, and finished off with Linen Thread and Rhinestones.  Oooooh I forgot the Little splats  from Timeless Textures they are stamped in Smokey Slate just to add that little extra that I thought was missing...

Jar of Love, Stampin Up! #GDP079

Over at Global Design Project#GDP079 HERE this week the theme is Amusement Park.

When I saw this challenge I was a bit perplexed but the more I thought about it the more it brought back memories of when my Dad used to take me to the fairs when I was a little un. 
I always came home with a Gold Fish or Two, and a face full of Candy Floss, the poor little Fishes must have been dizzy on the journey back home, with me swinging the bag excitedly. 

I used scraps that I made whilst playing with the Bubble wrap Technique, Using Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink pads on to Shimmery Card Stock.
 I made a Jar for the Jar of Love Bundle, a little acetate window , and I coloured the Fishes with marker Pens, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, and Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie  with splashes of Wild Wasabi. the sliver of DSP is from the Tasty Treats pack which is now on offer for Free with the Sale- A-Bration offers until the end of this month. I sprinkled a few tiny sequins from the Cool Treats Suite and a few Rhinestones .




The sentiment is from the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set and is very apt indeed.
  
 I really didn't know we were making memories, I did just think we were having fun!!

The colour  I have chosen is Watermelon Wonder, I adore the Boldness of this colour and will truly miss it.

I used the Sweet Cupcake Bundle, a set that was gifted to me by my lovely upline Natalie O'shea to celebrate my promoting within Stampin Up to GOLD ELITE last month, it's a fabulous bundle I love the font used in this set, and the dies are versatile too...



These colours are retiring , what is your favourite?

Global Design Project 078 | Sketch Challenge

Global Design Project 078 | Sketch Challenge


Today's Card is using another Sketch this time the Global design Project Teams Sketch HERE #GDP078. 
The Stamp Set I used today is the That's the Tag Set, The sentiment is from the Iconic Occasions Hostess Set, and the DSP from the Sale- A - Bration selection , only available when you spend £45 by the end of March 2017.

I used the Bubble Wrap technique where you colur the Bubble Wrap with watered down ink using a water Brush not Shimmery White Card Stock, shame you can't see the shimmer in the photo's.

I used the Stiched Shape Framelets that are coming in the June Annual Catalogue but are available NOW in my online shop item code 145372.


The Colours I used are Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black.  Firstly I stamped the stiched circle from the Stamp Set, and I stamped the pretty flower from  the That's the Tag set, and stamped again onto DSP and used the ball of my embossing tool to manipulate the petals so that they curled. and adhered to the stamped flower on the circle, I cut the circle out using the Stitched Shape Framelits, you get three different shapes and four sizes of each shape, all for £27

Here is another Using Pool Party and a splash of Bermuda Bay, and the DSP is from the Sweet Treats This one is winging itself to a good friend that just loves Blue.
Have to say though I very nearly kept it, lol.
Edited to say I am pleased to say I am winner with this card over at GDP Soooo pleased.

Global design Project # 077- Colour Challenge with Dragonfly dreams Stampin' Up!

Today's card I entering into the Global design Project # 077- Colour Challenge where you get a chance to be picked as a guest designer for a Colour Challenge now wouldn't that be fabulous!!


There's some fabulous inspiration over at the Challenge Blog HERE please do go take a look.


I wanted to use a technique I came across on an American demo's blog (My Pink Stamper,  this Lady is amazing, ) called Bubble Wrap Watercolour Background, its a fab fun and not so messy technique using Household tat, namely Bubble wrap...


I used watercolour Paper, Flicked splashes of Clear Wink of Stella you can barely see this in the photo's but it just finishes it off all lovely and sparkly, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, Sequins and Brights Enamel Dots add to the textures.



I stamped the sentiment in versamark and threw White Embossing Powder on top for my Free choice Colour,  Ooooo and I spaltted a few bits of Gold Wink of Stella too as I have now run out of the Clear one, Must remedy that!!
