GDP#0016 – It’s time to play with new goodies!!

Well, I’ve finally done the swap over and put away my Holiday Catalogue products away and have put my new Occasions Catalogue goodies out so that I can play with them!!!

There are so many gorgeous new things to play with, that it’s hard to know where to start!!

I decided to play with the Global Design Project today. This week, the challenge is to case the designer, who is the talented Bibi Cameron from the UK.

GDP016 Case the designer

I used the circle and the sentiment as the inspiration for my card. I just love the word thinlits and I don’t use them enough. I cut out the thanks from the Greetings thinlits in Silver glimmer paper.

One of my favourite stamp sets is Circle of Spring. I just love colouring the flowers with my blender pens. Makes me feel very arty! I stamped with basic black, then coloured in with Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder. I created my own background by using my aqua painter and putting a few drops of Mint Macaron ink in the lid of the ink pad and drew my lines across the thick Whisper White cardstock. I am just so arty today!! lol

I think I’m getting better with my Silver cord swirls now that I try to follow the curls of the cord. You’d think seeing as I have curly hair, that I would know to go with the curl not against it!!

I just love the new thick Watermelon Wonder Stitched Satin Ribbon. It’s so nice and thick and shiny. I cut a piece to make a banner across the card and then felt it need something more in the middle. I cut a long piece of ribbon and got out a needle and thread (shock, horror, I know!!) and gathered the bottom of the ribbon. A couple of knots and doesn’t it look great!!

I then put a bit of glue using the fine tip glue pen on the back of the thanks and placed it on the ribbon. To make it stick, I put a large block on top of it and left it for a few minutes until the glue had dried enough. It seems to be hanging on so far!!

It’s always nice when a plan comes together!!

  1. That bow you sewed in the middle is beautiful. So envious . I can’t sew to save my life, but I enjoyed looking at your creation. The background is awesome too. I thought it was dsp or a background stamp until I read your blog. Great “artsy” job 😉

  2. Gorgeous card Rebecca! Love your idea with the ribbon. I have never noticed that watermelon wonder ribbon, you have totally sold me on it. Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge!
