This week’s Global Design Project is a fun color challenge, using Lost Lagoon, Poppy Parade, and Grey Granite. I thought the colors would be great for a masculine, Valentine card, and started by stamping the truck, from the Trucking Along Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used its “two-step” stamp to color the truck with Gray Granite Ink.

Trucking Along Valentine


Next, I used an Adoring Hearts Die to cut the heart from Poppy Parade Cardstock, filling the truck with a heavy load. And, I cut two, tall bushes, using a Painted Lavender Die, from Perennial Lavender Designer Paper.


The rectangles were cut with a Perennial Postage Die, 2″ X 2 3/4″, from Perennial Lavender Designer Paper. These were glued on an angle to Basic White Cardstock, cut with the largest Perennial Postage Die. All were glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Don’t you love the detailed edge that these dies provide?


Finally, the sentiment from the Trucking Along Stamp Set. I stamped “special delivery” in Memento Black Ink, and used another Perennial Postage Die, 1/3/4″ X 3/4″,  for cutting. After attaching it with Dimensionals, my card was complete.


See how the designers used the colors, then create your design, and hang it in our gallery.
