OK, so it is official! I am completely besotted with the new In Colours! I can’t help it, I’ve tried but I just can’t put them down! And based on the card I’m sharing with you today – life is going to be extremely colourful from now on!! I’m super excited to be joining in with the Global Design Project challenge today after a couple of weeks absence. This week it’s a CASE challenge and I busted out a stamp set that might have you wondering ‘where is that stamp?’
The challenge this week is a CASE challenge, in particular case’ing Michelle Last, an incredibly talented demo, and just a lovely person to boot! Here is the challenge:
Stampin’ Up! Oh, Happy Day Card Kit
And let me tell you, these colours make my day very happy! I LOVE them so much! I’ve paired Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst with Bermuda Bay for today’s combination – gorgeous! Did you spot the stamp set though? It’s easy to overlook the card kits in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, but they have some gorgeous stamp sets with them.
WHAT DID I DO?
What really caught my eye about Michelle’s card was the frame she had created and added to her card. Starting with a white background (well, that wasn’t a hardship!), I wanted my frame to be the focal point of my card. I also really wanted to use mismatch shapes to create it too.
I started with a large Hexagon – cut using the Window Box Thinlits – and removing the lid portion. A circle was then cut inside of that to create my frame. I debating stamping my sentiment in the middle onto the base card but in the end decided on the Stitched Circle instead. The Stampin’ Up! Oh, Happy Day Card Kit sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide onto the Bermuda Bay circle. And how about those Lemon Lime Twist leaves? They are from the Flourish Thinlits and I love them in that colour! Lemon Lime Twist really does give that POP!
A few Enamel Dots just finish things up.
