This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge. See what our designers did with the sketch, then create your own design, and hang it in our gallery.


I first thought of using Stylish Shapes Dies for the two squares and sentiment label. This led to creating a stencil by using the square, 2″ die, to cut a hole in Vellum Cardstock, 4″ X 4″. Then, I placed the Vellum over Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 4 1/2″. Using a Blending Brush, I filled in the square “holes” with Bubble Bath Ink (top square), and Fresh Freesia Ink (bottom square).

Hearts & Squares


Next, I used the large, Adoring Hearts Die, to cut two hearts from Flight & Airy Designer Paper. I cut two more hearts, from Thick Basic White Cardstock, to layer with the hearts for thickness, and placed the hearts on Dimensionals. Two leaves were also cut from Basic White Cardstock, colored with Blending Brushes and Garden Green Ink, and attached to the hearts.


The sentiment, “love you,” is from the Lifetime Of Love Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, cut with a Stylish Shapes Die, amd attached with Dimensionals.


The background is all white, Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Perennial Postage Die, and a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
