GDP – Casing Louise

I don’t get a chance to play along at Global Design Project often but I had a little time to play this week.  They are casing one of the talented designers this week, Louise Sharp.  I love her work so I was excited to join in!

 

I decided to case the layout and I wanted to use the Birthday Fiesta stamp set as I just love the Llama!!  I used the cactus piece of the Festive Birthday DSP as it’s also a little quirky!  I simply used the reverse side of this paper for the Melon Mambo piece.

The oval sentiment just grew as I started with the happy birthday then I noticed the floral stamp so I added that too!  Fortunately, it fitted into the oval framelits.  I just tucked the Llama in behind the sentiment for a little fun.

I hope you like my card, please let me know in the comments below.

Don’t forget that it is the last week of Sale-a-bration, so make sure you get your freebies soon!!

Happy Stamping

CTC88 – Everyday Occasions

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are almost at the end of July!!  Where is this year going!! I’m still waiting for winter to arrive, here in Queensland.  It was 28 degrees yesterday and I had on my t-shirt and shorts!!  It’s a bit cooler today but still feels like Autumn.

This week we are back casing the Everyday Occasions section of the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue from pages 66-91.

There are so many gorgeous cards to case!!  I love the Layering Love stamp set although I haven’t got it yet.  I was inspired by the card featuring this set on the top right of the picture.

I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set for my card and I didn’t feel it was quite appropriate to make a shaker card like the sample.  I embossed the main card with the Sparkle embossing folder in Soft Sky cardstock, then cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals framelits in So Saffron and then attached it to the front of the card.  I then cut out the oval on both layers.  I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky on a separate piece of cardstock and attached it from behind.  That way, I could make sure it was centred nicely!!

I then punched a few little flowers and leaves using the Blossom Builder punch and scrunched them up a bit to give some texture and attached them with glue dots.  And of course, there are a few of the teeny tiny pearls in the centre of the flowers.
