This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch challenge, and I’m excited to share a sneak peek of Thoughtful Journey Designer Paper with you. This gorgeous paper will be available May1st!

I began with a Basic Beige card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, using a Radiating Stitches Die, I cut another piece of Basic Beige Cardstock, 4″ X 2 5/8″. Basic Beige is a new color that will also be available May 1.

Thoughtful Journey in layers


Next, I cut Thoughtful Journey Designer Paper, using three, Radiating Stitches Dies. The dies were run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, on top of the DSP, at the same time. The frame that was created with the largest die was glued on the card front.

After adding cardstock for thickness to the top layer, I wound Linen Thread around it, and tied a bow on one end. Then, I attached the top layer with Dimensionals to the middle layer of Basic Beige Cardstock, which was attached with Dimensionals over the frame.


“Have a blessed day” is from another new stamp set, Unbounded Love. It comes bundled with wonderful, Unbounded Love Dies, but I used an extra long die from Hearts & Hugs, another new set! After stamping the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink, I attached it on top of the Linen Thread with Dimensionals.


The last step was adding three 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems. This happens to be my Host Code Gift for the month of April, and you can see the details below.


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