Thank You - Simply Said - GDP443 Theme Challenge

Thank You - Simply Said - GDP443 Theme Challenge


Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today's card is for Global Design Project's GDP443 Theme Challenge. This week we have a fun Theme Challenge inspired by "Music". As I don't have many music themed sets, I decided to use one of the really fun music themed DSP from Stampin' Up!® which is retiring soon (unfortunately). The paper is really versatile due to its black and white graphic imagery.

For my card, I used the Simply Said stamp set, Rock & Roll DSP (retiring), 2" Circle Punch and Stampin' Blends.


Instructions:

- Use Basic White for the card base and layer with 2 pieces of the Rock & Roll DSP. Punch two circles from one of the pieces of the DSP with a 2" Circle Punch.

- Fussy cut music related images from one of the graphic papers of the Rock & Roll DSP. Colour the images with Stampin' Blends (Lemon Lime Twist, Petunia Pop, Flirty Flamingo, Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Pool Party and Summer Splash). 

- Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Said stamp set onto Basic White with Tuxedo Black ink.

Beloved - Queen Bee - CAS on Friday

Beloved - Queen Bee - CAS on Friday


Hello and welcome back to my blog! My card for today is for this week's CAS on Friday Challenge #282 theme which is a 'Sunshine' Challenge. The Sunshine theme reminded me of a floral garden which is what inspired today's card.

For my card today, I used the Queen Bee stamp set (colouring the images with Stampin" Blends) and Queen Bee Dies (retired), Metal Plate Embossing Folder and Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (retiring end of April). 

Make sure to visit the blog HERE to see the rest of the team's projects.

Instructions:

- Use Basic White card for the card base and layer with a piece of Bubble Bath card which has been embossed with the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder. 

- Stamp the bee image from the Queen Bee stamp set onto a piece of Basic White card using Smoky Slate ink. Colour the images with Stampin' Blends (Lemon Lolly, Bubble Bath, Petunia Pop, Summer Splash and Pecan Pie). 

- Die cut the image with the Queen Bee Dies. Use the dies to die cut flowers from Lemon Lolly card, as well as a bee from Very Vanilla card (this was an off cut from a previous card). Adhere all the die cut pieces to the card front.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Queen Bee stamp set using Smoky Slate onto Basic White and attach. Add some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the die cut flowers to complete.
