Live, Love, Grow GDP042

I have told you guys many times that Global Design Project is my favorite challenge to participate in.  I just love the talent on the Design team.  This week I made sure that I took time to create a project for there challenge.  I encourage each of you to play along with the Global Design Team.  Here is this weeks banner.GDP042

When the new catalog came out there were a few stamps (more that a few actually) that was on my must have list!  Close to the top of the list was a great little set called Live, Love, Grow.  I just LOVE the name of this set and even better it is one of the sentiments!!!

Live, Love, Grow

Live, Love, Grow


The succulents and the bell jar terrarium just make this set precious.  It even included the glass jar topper.  Thought, I forgot to use it. Woops….Rocks, and dirt…They really did think of everything! I am head over heals in love with this set.  Live, Love, Grow for Global Design Project

Here are a few details:

  • On cold press watercolor paper I watercolored a blue background with a little aqua in it.   Though, in the picture you can’t really tell it.
  • Then I stamped the bell jar terrarium with the archival basic black ink.
  • Then using only the solid images from the stamp set I stamped my little garden using a varity of green inks and Tip Top Taupe ink for the rocks and dirt.
  • The background is the Brick Wall Textured Impression on Tip Top Taupe card stock
  • For a little contrast I added a Watermelon Wonder ribbon  behind the bell jar terrarium
  • All that is left is to stamp the sentiment…

Live love grow

Here is the supply list:

  • Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder, Watercolor Paper
  • Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Garden Green, Old Olive, and Cucumber Crush
  • Textured impression: Brick Wall
  • Other: Stampin’ Dimentionals, multipurpose glue, Watermelon Wonder 5/8 inch mini striped ribbon


In life we should a live, love and grow a little!  I personally don’t like the growing part.  I can live, and I can love (most of the time) , but growing to be a better human is challenging….I wish I could just eat and grow to be better person and not grow in size.  Would that not be the best.  Eat something wonderful like, Hot fudge cake and it would give you some kind of mystical power to be a better person!   Well, I am going to think on that for a while.  Hope all of you are enjoying your Forth of July Holiday Weekend.  I am crafting all weekend getting ready for the Christmas in July class.

Much Love,

  1. Such a beautiful card, Jennifer! I adore your artistry and how you think. Love the texture you’ve created with the embossing folder and how you’ve used the folded ribbon behind the terrarium. Love it! Thanks so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge!
