Make sure you pop on over and have a look at all the inspiration at the Global Design Project. Here is my take on Global Design Project #024 CASE the Designer.

I started monthly technique classes and this was one of the samples I made using the Emboss Resist and Watercolour Technique. The ladies loved the class and the technique. What do you think of the card? I simply love this bundle – the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Rose Garden Thinit Dies. It’s very versatile and has some wonderful sentiments as well. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on Basic Black and I used White Emboss Powder before… Read more »

Here’s another card I have made for the Global Design Project #023 | Theme Challenge. I was inspired by a card I saw on Carolyn Bennie’s blog where she did some Faux Embossing. I decided to do a similar thing using Balloons. I just wish I had a way of ensuring the photograph represented the colours better. I’ve used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out some balloons in Soft Sky and then adhered them to the Soft Sky layer of… Read more »

Another week gone as February seems to be whooshing by. I hope this post finds you well and in the mood to create. I decided to use the Number of Years Photopolymer Bundle today which comes with the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, which are fantastic for this type of card. I made 2 similar cards while I was at it. When I have my Big Shot out I like to cut a… Read more »

  I’ve made an Easel Card this week for the Global Design Project #023 | Theme Challenge. It has many elements with dry and wet embossing, stamping off, ink distressing, masking and layering just to name a few. It was fun to make. I had this idea in my head however it hasn’t quite turned out like the picture in my head. It’s close. I have other ideas for this challenge however I’m not sure I’ll get them made this week….

The new Rose Wonder and Rose Garden Bundle are truly wonderful, both from the Occasions Catalogue.  This is another card made at our team meeting last week with Leonie. When you run the card through your Big Shot, then use the new Big Shot Die Brush to remove all the pieces and it’s ready to colour with daubers. I used the  single flower stamp which matches the single flower die cut on the front of the card, to stamp 3 images… Read more »

I decided to do a quick video to share these hints and tips with you and show you just how… Read more »
