Global Design Project #006

I  am absolutely in love with this week's Global Design Project Challenge!  I love the sketch and I hope you will, too!



Here is what I came up with!  Of course I had to make more than one! 🙂  I love the colors of Smoky Slate with Bermuda Bay-it is just a classic looking combo and looks great for a variety of occasions!


I created the background by stamping the dots from the set, Stamp A Bag in Smoky Slate. I started with the bottom row at an angle and then worked my way up to the right-hand corner.


Then I added the white satin ribbon and stamped the greeting (from Watercolor Wishes Set)


I used Whisper White paper to punch the Fun Flower punch twice, I then stamped the centers from the set, Beautiful Bunch.  The leaves are just 2 petals from the same Fun flower punched in Pear Pizzazz.


My Second card for the GDC, is this pretty Hello Honey Flower! 


I stamped the lines for the background the same way as dots–they are even from the same set!


The flower is from the set, Crazy about You and is stamped in Hello Honey and punched with the Flower Medallion Punch.  The center is punched with the Itty BItty Accents Punch Pack and a white perfect accent is awesome in the center!

  2. Two cards…..I struggled with one! Both are as stunning as each other. Both gorgeous color combinations and beautifully polished with the layering and the flowers. You amaze me every time.

  4. Both cards are SO BEAUTIFUL, Dena! Love how you used Smoky Slate in both – once as a backdrop and once as the accented color. Both are lovely! I’m so happy you played along with this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge. Thanks!
