Easy Thank You for Global Design Project

Over at Global Design Project, they have a great challenge going on.  The design team really have some great inspiration for all of us so be sure to check it out!  I am super excited to be playing along this week!  It has been a while sence I had the chance to play with Global Design Team!  So, Yeppie :>

GDP027 Thank you

The theme is Thank You so of course I had to pull out my favorite Thank You set.

One Big Meaning

One Big Meaning

I have not used this set in a while and I am not quite sure why.  So it was nice to playing with it again.  IMAG3012

Here are a few notes:

  • The card base is Pear Pizzazz cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches.  The card layers are So Saffron and Shimmery White
  • The background is made with the Happy Patterns Decorative Masks, Clarity Stencil Brushes, and the ink colors So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Sky.  I taped the mask down over shimmery white paper then using the stencil brush picking up the ink directly from the ink pad added color to the card.
  • The soft yet bold background works perfect with the One Big Meaning Stamp set.
  • While I had my mask out, it was easy to make several backgrounds at once.
  • If using the same color palate it is not necessary to clean mask in between backgrounds.  The ink on the mask will help make interesting color combinations as you work.

Here are two other examples.  The first using a dotted mask I have had a while.  The second is with the diamonds from Happy Patterns Decorative Mask. IMAG3025

The colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise.  But, because I  blended the Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoises inks the middle is green….

The Card base is Pear pizzazz .  And the base layer is So Saffron


The colors used on this card are  Crystal Pewter, Smokey Quarts, and Light Onyx by the Ton Stamp Company

The card base is Always Artichoke card stock. The Base layer is So Saffron
