For all things and Global Design Project

Global Design Project has a all new challenge for us this week.  This challenge is a color challeng.  I personally love the colors of this challenge.  They were so much fun to create with.  Be sure to check out all the projects by the Design Team over at Global Design Project.  GDP009 Challenge

Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, and Watermelon Wonder are all part of the In Color collection .  They are happy and cherry colors.  This makes them fun to work with.  Tip Top Taupe has become on of my go to neutrals.  It is such a great color.  And Mint Macaron is just lovely.  I want walls this color.  Actually, I had walls this color or very close.  Watermelon Wonder is very versatile.  It is going to be a rock star in the spring.  But, it is a great leaf color for right now.  And will also work for the upcoming Holiday Season.

I pulled out a few of my fall stamps that have been neglected this year.  For All Things  is a fabulous stamp set that has a watercolor fill to it.  The  stamp set is designed for layering of the stamps with a watercolor look when you get through.   If you like the watercolor look but, don’t want to actually watercolor.  This stamp set is perfect for you!  For all things

This set has everything you need to make beautiful cards. IMAG2355

The card base is Mint Macaron card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches.  The layers are Tip Top taupe  and Whisper White.  On the Whisper White layer stamp the images using Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe.  The small Mint Macaron leaf is from the stamp set lighthearted leaves.  Make a panel with Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, and Whisper White. The Whisper White is 2 1//2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.  The Tip Top Taupe is 1 /8 inch larger.  The Mint Macaron layer is 1/4 inch larger than the Tip Top Taupe layer.

On the Whisper White layer stamp the Sentiment  using a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig makes it so very easy to get everything lined up just right.  Then stamp the watercolor wash stamp in Mint Macaron.  Stamp the Branch bundle in Watermelon Wonder over the Mint Macaron wash.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the panel to the card base.  This give the card some much needed dimension and life.
