Monochrome - #GDP185



A monochrome challenge from the Global Design Project this week! The challenge says that it can be any color, just monochrome. I love me some black and white so I went classic monochrome ..



dolce details

  • Cut the flower branch out with Basic Black cardstock and the Flourish Dies
  • Save the "negative" cardstock when you cut and use this as a stencil or mask
  • Use Basic Grey Ink and a Stampin' Sponge to add the subtle background on Whisper White Cardstock
  • Cut your card front 3/4" from the open side
  • Add a 1" strip of Design Series Paper to the right edge of the inside of the card so that it peeks out when the card is closed.


Take the monochrome challenge with the GDP today! Learn more!

I have two stamp clubs that run each month. With each group we participate in a card swap. This means that everyone brings a card for each person in the group (all the same), we trade cards and you go home with a stack of different cards and ideas! I stepped down this card to create my club swap card for April (I need to make 18 so stepping down is more doable!).






Next on the Crafty Carrot Co. blog hop is my friend Susan Wong.

Thank-you for visiting the Crafty Carrot! Have a creative day!

Lilacs and Friendship - #GDP184

Friendship is a beautiful thing. Think of all the friends you have made over your lifetime. Each person that has become your friend, has played an important part of your story. Sometimes friends come in and out of our live. Sometimes they stay. But all of those people have impacted your life. 

When my Gramma Rita passed in November, my bestie brought me flowers to work. They had the most beautiful lilacs in the arrangement. The smell of lilacs in February (the dead of winter) was amazing. Friendship and lilacs inspired my card for this weeks Global Design Project.





My stamp clubs created this card in March. I offer my stamp clubs the option of creating cards or a scrapbook layout. Here is the scrapbook that included techniques and elements from the card above. I went to print off photos to add to the layout by my phone needed an update, then I had to download the photos to the computer. Arg. What a painful process. Usually I am on top of transferring my photos. When you do it weekly or bi-weekly it is quick, but when you have a couple months worth, it bogs down and takes forever! Long story short ... I am sharing the scrapbook layout, sans photo. 


The Global Design Project this week is CASE Allison Okamitsu's card shown below!

Zoo day! - GDP183


Today I am crafting for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP183 - "A day at the park" theme. I exercised creative freedom to come up my version of a day at the park ... or a day at the zoo! Believe it or not, I do not own every stamp set from Stampin' Up!©, so I had to make do with what I had in my collection.





While I was coloring away with my Blends and the Animal Outing Stamp Set, I accidentally colored my first rhino's horn grey. In the end, I could not bring myself to throw him away so I just created a quick card with him. Who will notice, right?! 


CLICK HERE to see what the rest of the design team has created for this challenge this week!
If you are crafting, we would love to see what you are creating! Share here!



Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day my friends!
