Latte Love for Global Design Project 438

This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge. I’m using the new, Online Exclusive products, Latte Love, with an Annual Catalog favorite, Gorgeously Made.

I began by using two Gorgeously Made Dies to cut a pattern of A Little Latte Designer Paper. Then, I used two, Gorgeously Made stamps to stamp Basic White Cardstock, 4 ” X 5 1/4″, in Early Espresso Ink. A third stamp was used to stamp the center panel,1 7/8 X 4 7/8″, layered on A little Latte DSP, 2″ X 5″.

Latte Love

 

After stamping the layer, I glued it to a Lost Lagoon card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I glued the die-cuts and panel in place.

Next, I used a Latte Love Die to cut a coffee cup from the A Little Latte Designer Paper, and attached it with Dimensionals. 

 

“You’re the best part of my day” is from the Latte Love Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on A Little Latte Designer Paper. To complete the sketch, I cut a 4″ X 1 1/4″ piece, and gave it an uneven top with a Gorgeously Made Die. The final step was adding three, delicious, Adhesive Backed Swirl Dots.

 

See how our designers used the sketch, then create your own card, and hang it in our gallery.

Arty the Alligator is Back!

I made today’s card especially for my granddaughter, Lily, because she has a large, stuffed alligator, named Arty. Lily’s second birthday isn’t until the end of August, but Arty wanted to make this card when you would still be able to order his stamp set. He is in the Jungle Pals Stamp Set that you can earn for free, but only until February 29, when Sale-a-bration ends.

Arty said this would be an easy card, because all I needed to do was stamp him in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and use a Perennial Postage Die for cutting. He thought it looked like he bit the paper with his teeth, and I have to agree. After cutting, Arty said he needed to be green, like Lily’s alligator, so I used three shades of Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow.

Arty’s card for Lily

 

Next, Arty said the card base needed to be purple, Lily’s favorite color. So, I cut a Highland Heather card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I layered it with Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Perennial Postage Die, for more teeth marks.

 

Arty wanted Lily’s birthday card to have lots of balloons, which we found in the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set. I stamped them in three colors of Ink: Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia, and Highland Heather, along with a couple strings in Memento Black Ink. This is when I surprised Arty, because I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Sweetly Scripted Stamp Set. This is a new set that he hadn’t seen, and he thought it was perfect. It will be available in Online Exclusives March 5th, along with many new products!

Arty said he didn’t really like sequins, but thought Lily would, so I should add them. Isn’t he considerate?

 

Arty is excited to share his card with TGIF.

Beauty of the Deep Birthday Card

Sea life is intriguing, and our Beauty Of The Deep Stamp Set has wonderful images. I began today’s card with a 1 3/4″ Stylish Shapes Die, cutting three circles from Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used a Blending Brush to color them with Lost Lagoon and Granny Apple Green Ink. After coloring, I stamped the fish and dots in the same colors of ink, and placed the circles on Dimensionals.

Birthday Wishes with Fish

 

For the background, I stamped on Basic White Cardstock, 3 1/4″ X 5 5/16″. The seaweed was stamped in VersaMark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool. I used the same method for the angel fish, used its Beauty Of The Deep Die for cutting, and attached it with a Dimensional.

 

Prior to attaching the layer, with Dimensionals, to a Lost Lagoon card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I stamped the bubbles in Pool Party Ink, and “Happy Birthday” in Lost Lagoon Ink. The bubbles and sentiment are from the Simply Sparkling Stamp Set.

 

Finally, I used two Sending Dies to cut “Sending” from Gold Foil, and the backing from Basic White Cardstock. After gluing the two together, I glued the center of the word on the middle circle, and propped the ends of the word on Dimensionals.

I think this card would be good for a guy, don’t you?

 

I was inspired by TGIF.

Adoring Hearts

Today’s card is a clean & simple Valentine, using the Adoring Hearts Stamp Set.

I “adore” this heart and sentiment, don’t you? I stamped the heart, and “you are most loved,” in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I colored the heart with Stampin’ Blends in Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo.

Most Adored

 

After coloring, I used a Garden Meadow Die for cutting. This wonderful arch die is part of an online exclusive set.

 

Next, I cut a piece of Most Adored Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. This is one of the patterns of a FREE Sale-a-bration item, with a qualifying purchase. Then, I used the same arch die to cut a hole from the center of the designer paper.

After gluing the pink frame to a Thick Basic White card base, I filled in the hole with the stamped & colored, white arch.

For a sweet touch, I added three, Iridescent Pearls.

Cupcake the Birthday Bunny

Meet Cupcake, from the Fluffiest Friends Stamp Set, an online exclusive. She was so happy to finally be featured on a card, and very helpful with her suggestions. She thought Crumb Cake fur would be the most flattering, and her cupcake should have Bubble Bath frosting, with a Real Red cherry on top. Plus, she wanted the paper wrapping the cupcake to sparkle, and said I should use Wink Of Stella. Wasn’t that a good idea?

Cupcake the Bunny

 

Next, Cupcake wanted to sit in a circle, which I cut from Basic White Cardstock with the 5th smallest Deckled Circles Die. We found the perfect sentiment in the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set, “Let’s get our celebration on.” The circle behind the white circle was cut from Most Adored Designer Paper with the 8th smallest Deckled Circles Die. And, this was layered on Crumb Cake Cardstock, cut with the 9th smallest deckled Circles Die. I think she got her wish to sit in a circle!

 

Once the circles were attached together, I glued them to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to gluing, I embossed the card base with the Stripes Embossing Folder.

To complete Cupcake’s card, she said I needed to add three flowers from Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers. This really made her smile!

 

Cupcake is excited to share her card with TGIF.

Most Adored Valentine

Today’s card developed from a fun sketch, you’ll see below. My first decision for the design was to use a FREE Sale-a-bration designer paper, Most Adored. I cut two heart patterns, 3 1/2″ X 2 1/4″ and 1 7/8″ X 1 7/8″, and layered them on Real Red Cardstock, 3 5/8″ X 2 3/8″ and 2″ X 2″.

To complete the sketch, I cut Gold Foil 4 3/4″ X 3/4″, placed Tear & Tape down the middle, and adhered Burlap Ribbon to the tape. After trimming the ends, it was glued to the background.

Adoring Hearts

 

The background is another selection of Most Adored Designer Paper with tiny, gold hearts. Isn’t it pretty? I glued this to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

After the pink, heart layers were attached with Dimensionals, I used Love For You Dies to cut “love you” from Gold Foil, and glued the words in place.

 

The final touch was adding a pink heart on top of the square. I used an Adoring Hearts Die to cut a heart from the matching Most Adored DSP, and attached it with Dimensionals.

 

I was inspired by TGIF.
