Global Design Project is celebrating love with there challenge this week. I have been thinking about what I wanted to make for this challenge. Last night I came home and worked on a few ideas. I did not really like anything that I created. So, today, when we come home from work early because of snow. I decided to take advantage of the time and make a few cards. This time I decided to set the mood. I turned on the oil diffuser and used my “At Peace” oil. I love the smell of this oil and it seems to help me relax so I can create. And guess what??? My mojo got going with creativity! The theme for GDP #019 is love.
I decided to go all in on Valentine’s Day with this theme. I used red (almost), white, and hearts. I did add a little green to mix things up a bit. Looking around at what I had regarding love them stamps seem to be lacking. I did find that I had the Hello Life stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Maybe, I need to invest in more stamps that are “love” oriented. I have plenty of flowers. But, like I said. I really wanted to go all out Valentine’s Day for this project. This to me meant hearts and love!!!!
The card is full of lovely layers. The base layers are Whisper White (card base), Mint Macaron, and Watermelon Wonder, and another Whisper White layer. On the top Whisper White layer the word love is stamped in Watermelon Wonder using the stamp set Hello Life stamp set. The top layers are Mint Macaron, and Watermelon Wonder. The top Watermelon Wonder layer was made using watercolor paper, Watermelon Wonder ink pad, and a sponge dabber. This added a little color variety to the background for the hearts. The hearts were punched from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.
Well, that’s what I did during the snow. What did you guys do on your Friday afternoon. And how are you planning on enjoying stamping over the weekend. I hope everyone is safe and sound during the current cold weather and wet. Happy Friday Night.
