Global Design Project #254

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for the challenge at the Global Design Project.  This week their challenge is a sketch challenge.

I’m on a Christmas card making roll.  It’s easy to do when I’ve got so many sets that I love creating with.  The stamp set I’ve used is called Poinsettia Petals.  I originally had the large poinsettia’s all coloured up ready to use, but when I placed them on my card, I felt they were a little bit too big.  So I stamped up four of the little ones and coloured them with a combination of Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Blends. The centre of them were coloured the the Dark Mango Melody Blend. I fussy cut them out and layered them with two images each stacked on each other.

The leaves for these poinsettia’s were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies that I had discarded from another project and were siting on my desk.  I also had the Soft Suede Ink berries discarded from yet another project that I added to the card.  Love it when I can use up images and die cuts rather than bin them.

The background of my card has been daubed with Sahara Sand Ink and over this, I stamped the ink splatters image in Soft Suede Ink from the Forever Fern Stamp Set. I added a strip of DSP from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper and added a sentiment from the Joy Dies and Peace & Joy Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love what you’ve done with these sets. The “peace” and the label are so beautifully highlighted on the woodgrain – and surrounding it with the poinsettias and white elements is gorgeous!
