At the Global Design Project this week, the challenge is a baby theme. I love the large sentiment on the Big News stamp set, so I decided to base my card around that.
I then choose Mint Macaron and Hello Honey for my colours. I don’t have any of the Baby DSP from this catalogue (I’m trying to be sensible!!) but then I realised that I only have the neutrals DSP stack which doesn’t quite go with my colour theme. But I DO have the Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP, so I decided to colour the dotty one with my sponge dauber and Mint Macaron.
Once I stamped the image from the Big News stamp set, I coloured the words in with the Hello Honey marker as I wanted them to stand out.
I then stamped a duckie from the Something for Baby stamp set and cut it out with the matching framelits, Baby’s First. I LOVE matching framelits!!
Now I just need to find someone having a baby to give this card too!! I wonder who it will be!!

I was so excited when one of my stamping besties, Jessica of The Paper Caper, told me that she had been invited to be a part of a new challenge blog, The Global Design Project. She certainly deserves to be a part of such a talented and inspiring team.
I like to support my friends’ in their endeavours, whether it’s shopping at their stores or participating in challenge blogs, so I had to give this one a go!! For their first project, they have gone with a colour challenge.
It’s very pretty, isn’t it!! I felt this said baby girl to me, so I had a look through my stamps and decided to use the cute little duck from Something for Baby. I may have also been persuaded to use this set as it has a matching set of framelits (Baby’s First) and I knew I wouldn’t have to cut it out!!
To make the dotty background, I used the Color Me Irresistible specialty DSP and sponged it with a stamping sponge as opposed to using a dauber. I wanted to make sure that it was softly coloured and not too splotchy which can sometimes happen with a dauber (at least it does to me).
I then made 2 banners and cut the ends with the Triple banner punch which I just love!! No more dodgy banners for me!!
So, what do you think?
I had fun playing along with this challenge and I can’t wait to see what’s on for next week!!
I’d love if you would leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
So this week we are exploring the Baby section of the catalogue. There are so many cute things to choose from!! Almost makes me want to have a baby so I can make such cute things!!
So when I looked through this section, I found that I didn’t have many of the baby stamp sets. I really only need to have one set so that I can make cards for when my friends have babies. I had got the Something for Baby Stamp set and co-ordinating framelits during the pre-order period of the catty as I love it when things match!! Also, how cute is that onesie!!
So I thought I would case the baby shower decorations on page 72 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
But I didn’t want to copy it exactly, so I thought I would turn them into cards.
I have to say I love the duckie stamp and of course the framelit!! And I’m so glad the pram has a matching framelit cos I would not want to cut that sucker out!!
Let me know what you think!!
