Today’s Global Design Project is the final one for 2021; a two week challenge. I used retiring, and current products, plus a new tool, Blending Brushes.

Peace on earth


I began by using Blending Brushes to color Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) with Balmy Blue Ink and Highland Heather Ink. The Blending Brushes are a new item in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog (#153611), and will be available January 5th. They are so soft, and easy to clean by rinsing with water, you’re going to love them!

Next, I cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 2″) with a Birds & More Die, and glued it across the top of my colored layer. Doesn’t it have a pretty edge?


The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

“Peace” was made with two Joy Dies, Silver Foil, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and attached with Mini Dimensionals. The coordinating stamp set, Peace & Joy, provided the words “on earth” that I stamped in Balmy Blue Ink. The two “peace” dies are shown in the first photo.

Finally, the five bells were made with a Sounds Of The Season Die, Silver Foil, and attached with Mini Dimensionals.



Here is Kerstin’s gorgeous card that we used for inspiration. You can click on it to see how the other GDP designers used Kerstin’s idea.

The stamp set and two die sets that were used for the sentiment are in the Year-End Closeout Sale.
