free feels good - #GDP127

We are just over half way through Stampin' Up!'s© Sale-a-bration promotion so today the Global Design Project design team wanted to inspire you by using some amazing free products from this promotion.

 Dolce Details

1. Stamp your image with VersaMark ink on Glossy White cardstock.

2. No need to heat dry or add embossing powder, it is good just as it is.

3. Ink a Sponge Brayer with Classic Ink, I used Pool Party.

4. Roll the Sponge Brayer over the Glossy White cardstock until you have the desired color.

5. Watch as the image comes to life through the ink!

6. You can buff the image with a tissue to remove the ink and make it pop even more.

That is it - simple and sweet!

I used two free items for this project ... the Amazing You Stamp Set (level one) and the coordinating Celebrate you Thinlits (level two).

How can you earn these for free?? For each $60 CAD you purchase in Stampin' Up!© merchandise, you can choose one Level One item for FREE! New this year, there are Level Two items that you can select for FREE when you purchase $120 CAD in merchandise. These items are even better and bigger than the level one items!

My monthly stamp clubs created this card this month. I also have scrapbook and Memories and More© stamp clubs and they created a coordinating project. Take a peek:

This pocketed page can fit 2 photos at 4x6 and 4 photos at 3x4.
The task now is to get my photos from February into this layout! 

This pocketed page can fit one 4x6 photo and one 4x4 photo.

Confession ... it will probably take me a year or two to get photos into this layout! Do you do that? Comment below and let me know! Create a layout in a class of event and then take forever to get images into them?! It is such a shame, really, I put all that love and work into these and they really deserve photos. Maybe this needs to be on my resolution list!

The GDP invites you to take the challenge this week. Get crafty, take a photo of your project and share it with us!

Thank-you for visiting. Have a creative day!

Beautiful Peacock - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

I am so happy to be back on the Fancy Friday blog hop! January was a whirlwind month for our family and I missed participating in the hop. Thankfully the stars aligned and I did not have to miss this months color challenge! 

This color combo had me at Pool Party but when I saw it paired with Night of Navy and Emerald Envy, I instantly was inspired to use the new Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set! 

This photopolymer stamp set is exclusively available to customers who purchase $60 CAD in Stampin' Up!© merchandise (before shipping & tax). 

The peacock was created by inking the stamp with Emerald Envy Ink. But before you stamp it onto Whisper White Cardstock, dab the stamp with a Sponge Dauber that has been inked with Night of Navy Ink. One last step before you stamp it ... huff on the stamp, like you would on your glasses if you were cleaning them, this will re-moisten the ink that may have dried - now you can stamp! Fussy cut the body out with Snips.

I stamped the bird a second time with Emerald Envy Ink and fussy cut out the wing to add more layers to the bird. Use Stampin' Dimensionals between the two.

Using a 1/8" Handheld Punch, punch a hole in the bottom corner of your cardstock. Hint: I did this after I layered all of my cardstock together. Thread Pool Party Baker's Twine through a Petal Passion Embellishment and the cardstock, tie in a knot behind. Leave the knot far enough up the twine so you can see it peeking out behind the scalloped Silver Foil Sheet.

The Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set has 12 stamps in the set, 10 of these stamps are flowers, branches/ swirls and greetings! Way more than just a peacock stamp set, right?!

Fruit filled mason jars - #GDP126

The Jar of Love stamp set and framelits have been a long time love of mine. The mason jar trend is still strong, and still adorable. When it comes to paper crafting, they can be used for almost any kind of project. The new Tutti-Frutti designer paper is a perfect match. These fruit filled mason jars remind me of fruit flavor infused water. The colors and graphics are just so delicious! 

This card layout was inspired by the Global Design Project challenge sketch #GDP126.

Each Monday, the GDP design team shares projects inspired by the weekly challenge. Click over to our website to see what we've created! You are invited to take the challenge too ... create this week, take a photo and share it! (learn full details here).

Have a creative day!
