Citrus fun - #GDP181

Welcome to another week and another Global Design Project Challenge! The challenge this week is a color combo challenge. Immediately these colors reminded me of citrus fruits and the amazing products in the Incredible Like You project kit from the Stampin' UP!© Occasions Catalogue.

The Incredible Like you Kit (item 148552) comes with all the supplies you see photographed, plus instructions to create 16 cards. Kits are great if you are a beginner stamper or if you needs cards in a hurry. I love kits because the come with coordinating products that I can use together to create my own designs.

Here is what I created for the challenge today with items from this kit:

Incredible Like You - Crafty Carrot Blog Hop

The last two years, the Crafty Carrot Collective has selected a Christmas Card kit for a tutorial feature during the holidays. These have been some of our most popular tutorials, so when we saw the beautiful Incredible Like You kit in the 2019 Stampin' Up!© Catalogue, we knew we had to include it in our spring tutorial offering.

Incredible Like You Project Kit

Delicate laser-cut overlays let the color peek through on these all-occasion cards. Store or gift your cards in the reusable storage envelope. 
Makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs. Folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm). 

Kit includes:
* 16 printed card bases
* Laser-cut card front overlays
* 16 printed envelopes
* Glimmer, printed, and silver foil die-cut accents
* Grapefruit Grove Baker’s Twine
* Stampin’ Dimensionals
* Adhesive dots
* Adhesive-backed rhinestones
* 6-5/16" x 5" x 2-5/16" (16 x 12.7 x 5.9 cm) printed polypropylene storage envelope

The instructions in this kit will walk you through creating 16 handmade cards, but we want to show you other creative ideas for the supplies included. It is our recommendation that you have the Incredible Like you Stamp Set too. It pairs perfectly with the project kit and you will be seeing the design team using it during the April tutorials.

Today, we are "dangling the carrot" to give you a peek at the potential that this kit has; by bringing you a design team blog hop!! Here is what I have created ...

The kit includes card bases, that are printed with a solid Stampin' Up!© color on the back side, a colored print pattern on the front side and white on the inside of the card. I used my own Whisper White cardstock to create a new card base and cut a card base from the kit in half. The Grapefruit Grove layer here is the card base cut to 4" x 4-1/4". Next, I cut the other half of the base cardstock to 3-3/4" x 5". Using the new Sale-a-bration* Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder (149698), I embossed the flowers to the white backside of the paper.

* with a minimum $60 CAD product purchase from my online store, you can earn this folder FREE!

The laser cut flowers were sponged with Basic Grey ink and tucked behind a Whisper White cardstock tag. I created this tag with scrap paper that I had, not cardstock from the kit ... because who doesn't have Whisper White scrap laying around, right?! The Grapefruit Grove ribbon you see, peeking out below the bow, is the only other item that is not from the kit. Can you believe that all of the other supplies are included?

Keep clicking through the hop to see what Cindy, Jenn and Susan have created.

Thank-you for visiting! We hope to see you in April during our live tutorials!

Hello friends! This past weekend I created a birthday card for my hubs. He is a huge fisherman so the Best Catch Stamp Set and Framelit Bundle was a must have for me. This was the first time that I used this bundle and I created three cards on Saturday afternoon with it. I had so much fun using it and I found myself in the creative zone.

The layout of this birthday card was inspired by the CASE THE DESIGNER challenge #GDP180 from the Global Design Project.

Each Monday my friends and I issue a weekly challenge to all of you! Craft along each week and share what you are creating with us - we love it when you do.
