It’s Monday again! That means it’s time for another Global Design Project Challenge. This week we’re creating projects with a theme: New Beginnings. These can be a new house, baby, wedding, pet or anything. Even with all these options in mind, I couldn’t help but use the Happy Celebrations stamp set from Stampin’ Up!
This card was pretty easy to make and you can do it too. First I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the large “Happy” outline stamp from the set. Once it’s completely dry, the formula of the Memento ink doesn’t smudge when you color it; even with alcohol markers like Stampin’ Blends.
I used the two tones of Pool Party Stampin’ Blends to give the words a gradient look.
“New Beginnings” is stamped in Berry Burst and I filled it in with the same color Stampin’ Write marker. You can’t even tell the difference in color which is unique to Stampin’ Up!’s perfect color coordination.
A little layering and embossing with the Simple Stripes Texuterd Impressions Embossing Folder adds dimension and a little more color to the card, but I thought it needed a little more fun.
A few dabs of Multipurpose Glue and a sprinkling of Gold Glitter Flakes adds a party to my card. A felt, In Color Itty Bitty Bow is the final touch.
I hope you enjoyed the card today. Head over Global Design Project and play along. We’d love to see what you come up with, plus you can get more inspiration from our outstanding Design Team.
