The Global Design Project is celebrating their 100th challenge!!! How fun is that. Earlier this week I cased the fabulous, Brin King. You can see my card here. Today, I am caseing my friend Shawn DeOliveira. Shawn and I officially met last year at World Card Making Day in Atlanta! Though we know each other in the cyber world much longer. So, I knew I had to CASE his awesome card for the Global Design Project 100th Challenge!
I love this card so much! The colors are awesome! The use of metallic is just perfect! One think that always impresses me about Shawn’s cards is the graphic feel they have. That, and how he uses ribbon is beyond amazing!
Here’s the banner for Global Design Project. I hope you all will hop over to see the design team’s cards for this very special challenge!
I wanted to use metallic, like Shawn did! I also wanted to case his card design. I love the clean and beautiful feel his card had. I loved the texture of the background so, I wanted to case that as well. That gave me a starting place…Matallics, design, and texture!!!
So the only thing let to decide on was the stamp set!
I decided on Lift Me Up! Mainly because, I thought the dies and stamped balloons would work as a focal point. Much like the sentiment, vellum, and ribbon all draw the eye to a certain point on Shawn’s card. And, well, I love this set! And I had not used it recently. So, it was time to dust it of…
I love how cute this stamp set is! And it is even better that the stamp set and coordinating dies work together to make verity of balloons. What fun!!!
- I decided for the metallic I would use the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper paired with silver foil. What a fun combination! Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst complete the color combination
- For the texture I added silver embossing with the touches of texture stamp set. This was added to the Berry Burst background and to the large balloon
- The sentiment is outlined with a banner border from Thoughful Banners. Look how wonderfully the sentiment fits right in there!
