Global Design Project - Sketch Challenge #gdp070

So this happened on Monday...

   
 I am so excited to be creating for the next Global Design Project 'Colour Challenge'. And all because of those cute pineapples!
Thankyou GDP Design Team xox


Today's creation is for the Global Design Project 'Sketch Challenge' #gdp070
You can let your imagine go wild when it comes to a Sketch Challenge, and I love the Challenge for this week.

I have used some products from the 'Cool Treats Suite' featured in the Occasions Catalogue and my creation is very cool...
 
A fun way to use the 'Cool Treats' stampset, gorgeous 'Tasty Treats Specialty DSP' & 'Sprinkles Embellishments.
 
 The dainty white grosgrain ribbon is from the 'Sending Love Ribbon' combo pack, and it makes bows beautifully.
 
A closeup of the sparkly 'Sprinkles Embellishments' - they are so pretty, and look so lovely around the 'You're Cool' sentiment.
 
Thankyou for visiting. Have a cool day.

'Travel' - Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight

I'm back! And this time it's for Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight Theme: 'Travel'.
And you can VOTE for your favourite of favourite creations!!!
The top ten winners will get to be a part of an International Blog Hop. 
So please vote for my project. You can do that here.


My creation is using my favourite stampset 'You're Sublime'. I have loved this stampset as soon as I opened the Occasions Catalogue at OnStage in Melbourne in November 2015!!!, and I thought the caravan was perfect for our 'Travel' theme.

 Here she is; the most darling of caravans you ever did see. And the 'Follow your heart' sentiment is such a perfect 'Travel' sentiment.
I have made my card for friends who are moving back to the UK. They moved to Australia 8 years ago, and due to lots of different reasons, they are heading back home in a couple of weeks. They are definitely following their hearts.

The background of my card is from the 'Serene Scenery DSP Stack'. A lovely beach scene reminiscent of where we live on the Coast. 
The caravan is sitting on a vellum Oval from the 'Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies' - Yay! they're back!!! And the 'Burlap Ribbon' & 'Gold Natural Trim' finish this card nicely.


Bon voyage, my friends!

Thankyou for visiting my blog and make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an International Blog Hop.
Have a wonderful day. D x

Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #CI01

This week I am entering a new Challenge; the Colour INKspiration Challenge #CI01
Why not join in? Challenges are so much fun, and this Challenge finishes Monday 23rd January. Maybe you can get crafty over the weekend?

And look at this gorgeous palette of colours to start with! There are 6 colours in total and you can use a minimum of 3 or all of them.
I used them all...

The colours are more Spring-time to me, and I have used the 'Circle of Spring' stampset for my projects; a Birthday card and matchy-matchy gift box.

I stamped the flowers onto 'Watercolour Paper', and coloured them using an 'Aqua Painter'. Once dried, I die-cut each pretty pastel flower.
And then I did something crazy and fussy-cut the flourishes from the wreath stamp!
I do that sort of stuff.

The card base measures 4" x 4" (4" x 8" & scored at 4"). The top mat is 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" - stamping in the middle, and then I ran a 'Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Marker' around the edge to add a frame.
The belly band for the gift box is a strip of Whisper White cardstock - a tad smaller in width than the 'Mint Macaron' ribbon. Attach 'Tear & Tap Adhesive' to the belly band, then wrap the ribbon around. The flowers will hide the join at the top.

The gift box: I bought a lip balm (similar to the EOS ones), and found on Pinterest this easy peasy video tutorial to make this sweet little box by Maria Fennelly - click here for the video tutorial.

Thankyou for visiting. I've loved having you here. If there are any questions - fire away, and comments are more than welcome.
Have a fantastic day. D x
