A color combo for little boys - GDP037


Happy Holiday Monday my Canadian friends! I hope that you have had a great May long weekend! The Global Design Project challenge this week is this beautiful color combo ... 
When I saw the combo I instantly thought that it was perfect for a baby boy. The Artisan Design Team received the MADE WITH LOVE Stamp Set recently and it was perfect! 




I don't think that I know anyone that has had a baby boy recently so I will have to stash this one for later. The Global Design Project would love it if you played along. It is easy to do ... visit the GDP, create and share on social media using #GDP037 (visit the GDP for full details).

Have a creative day!

Beep beep! - GDP036


The Global Design Project is CASEing the tallented Paula Dobison. I love how Paula always colors and sponges on her cards and that is what inspired my card today.


Now, I know that this looks nothing like the inspiration sketch for the challenge, but like I said, I was trying to capture some of her style ... coloring, sponging and bright colors. I sponged the background with the HAPPY PATTERNS DECORATIVE MASKS and a SPONGE DAUBER. The car is stamped on a piece of  WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK, colored and fussy cut out. (No Big Shot die for this one!).

If you are coloring, you NEED Whisper White Cardstock from Stampin' Up!©. It is a beautiful bright white and is smooth and perfect for coloring. You will feel the difference from other white cardstock! Trust me! 


I created a few cards with this design. On this one I added the luggage on the roof. Super cute, right?! This set has 21 stamps in it and has many little accessories for this car. You will only be able to puchase this stamp set until May 31, 2106. Get yours today at my Canadian Online Store before they are gone (while supplies last).

Project Life Birthday Card - GDP035


Happy Monday everyone! Today the Global Design Project team is creating projects with the Project Life theme. I am thinking that a few members or our design team will be sharing a Project Life layout so I wanted to create a card for you today.


Creating a card with a Project Life card collection can be quick and effortless. Each card collections is designed with coordinating colors, based on that package theme. Pick two or three from the set and you know they will match.

You can stamp on the Project Life cards! I added "Birthday" and turned this into a quick birthday card. Add a few RHINESTONES and this card comes to life. I took it one step further and added the balloon but you could have stop there. Tell me that is not the quickest card to create?



I am very excited to see what the rest of the Global Design Project Team is creating today for us with the Project Life theme. Click over to the Global Design Project to see!

Don't forget that you are always welcome to play along with us!

Have a wonderful & creative week!
