A romantic card - GDP190


Sometimes you just need a little romance! The little metal roses and laser cut tags in the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit just spoke of romance and inspired me to create a card from the heart.



I love having kits on hand. I find that they can fuel my creativity or help me make a card in a flash. This kit is on the current Stampin' Up!© last chance list ... meaning that it is only available until June 03, or while supplies last. To see the full last chance list, click here.


The layout of my card was inspired by this weeks

Broadway Birthday - The Crafty Carrot Co


Welcome to the May Crafty Carrot Co blog hop! We are showcasing the "Broadway Birthday Bundle" as a sneak peek into our tutorial program coming to you in June!




Cute, right?! I paired the bundle with the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. You may have heard about the Last Chance List from Stampin' Up!© during May. With a new catalogue coming in June, Stampin' Up! will be retiring products to make way for fresh, new items. Don't worry ... Broadway Birthday is not on that list, phew! The stamp set and dies are carrying over. Buuut, they will not be available at the bundle discount of 10% off. Stampin' Up! only offers the bundle and save offer when a product premiers in a publication. Once it has carried over to the next publication, they are available for regular price. All the more reason to buy them now!

What you will find on the Last Chance list is:

  • Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper   146277
  • Lemon Lime Twist - Cardstock, Classic Stampin' Pad, Classic Stampin' Ink Refill and all other items featuring this retiring color.




So what is the Crafty Carrot Co.? We are a group of 4 international designers that have collaborated together to offer you weekly project tutorials LIVE on Facebook. This exclusive group is available to you by:
    • Shopping with us

Color combo challenge time! - #GDP189

It is that time of year where I start to clean out my craft room and separate out all of the retired Stamps, Paper, Ink and tools that are on the Stampin' Up!© last chance list. It is always bitter sweet! 

For the Global Design Project Challenge this week, I wanted to showcase some items from the "Last Chance List". These items are available while supplies last, or until June 03, 2019.

Today I have used:


                                  Picture Perfect Birthday                          Pick a Pendent








Dolce Details:
  • I stamped the background images on Whisper White Cardstock. The "stars" and "+" stamps are from Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set, the "heart" is from Pick a Pendent Stamp Set.
  • The diamond texture is added by using Pattern Party Decorative Masks & Embossing Paste. When the paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds (glitter).
  • The doilies are from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper. I cut these circles from a larger doily cluster and then sponged them with Coastal Cabana ink.



My friends at the Global Design Project are amazing designers! Click here to see the gallery of projects that the rest of the design team have created this week. Feeling inspired? You are invited to play along! Learn more at the GDP.



Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!

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!



Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!
