Global Design Project - 'CASE the Designer' #gdp088


Hi there, and welcome to my blog.
This week the Global Design Project #gdp088 Challenge is 'CASE the Designer'. 
Shawn De Oliveira is the Design Team Member we are CASEing, and Shawn's creations are always amazing.
*CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit

My creation has a little bit of this & that of Shawn's card. See for yourself...

 I used the smaller rose from the 'Rose Garden Thinlits Dies', and added the die cut leaves from the larger rose.
My sentiment, embossed in gold, is from the 'Birthday Blooms' stamp set.
The colours of the rose & leaves are from the NEW '2017-2019 In Color' collection; Powder Pink & Tranquil Tide. This gorgeous In Colour collection will be available Thursday 1st June, 2017. Only 1 week away!

Details: The rose is sitting on a vellum die-cut oval from 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies'. Beneath the rose & leaves are tiny pieces of 'Stampin' Dimensionals' lifting the rose from the oval.
I have added a touch of 'Powder Pink' cardstock between the 'Crumb Cake' card base and mat of 'Very Vanilla' cardstock.
And the gold embossed sentiment. Sweet & simple.

Thankyou for visiting and I hope you get the chance to join in with this fun Challenge. Until next time. D x

Colour INKspiration Blog Hop #CI10

Hi there. It's time for the Colour INKspiration #CI10 Blog Hop,  and an opportunity for you to join in with this fortnights Colour Challenge. 
You may be starting here, or have hopped from Tanya's blog - either way; 'WELCOME!'


Regals & a Neutral. 
Not my usual colour choice. However, it is a Challenge after all.

Autumn leaves and the 'Foxy Friends' Bundle were in order for this colour challenge and great colours for a Baby Boy!
My very dapper 'Cajun Craze' fox and his dinky little 'Island Indigo' bow tie, sitting among the 'Delightful Dijon' and 'Crumb Cake' Autumn leaves.

How to create the Autumn leaves:
I die-cut the leaves using the 'Leaflets Framelits Dies'. With a 'Sponge Dauber', I daubed the edges of each leaf, then crumbled them and added a touch of daubing to the creases.

*The background is 'A Little Foxy' DSP - unfortunately, this has Sold Out on the Retiring Products List
You could make your own background using 'Smoky Slate' cardstock and stamping the 'Hardwood' Background stamp and embossing with 'White Stampin' Emboss Powder' or by using the 'Woodland' TIEF.

Thankyou for visiting and I hope you have enjoyed my 'Autumn Foxy Friends' creation? 
Keep on hopping... you will be visiting my fabulous friend Kelly Kent, and you don't want to miss out on seeing Kelly's project!

Global Design Project - 'Theme Challenge' #gdp087

This weeks Theme Challenge for the Global Design Project #gdp087 
is Cooking, Baking & Making.


I am definitely a maker, and I decided the 'Cook & Bake' part could be a cupcake!
A calorie free, gluten free, dairy free and egg free creation using the 'Sweet Cupcake' Bundle.

My friend Katie, made me a cupcake sample similar to this - and I CASEd Katie's design using a 'Pool Party' patty case and 'Melon Mambo' Frosting/Icing with 'Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter'. I also used 'Flirty Flamingo' as the base for the 2-step stamping.


My cupcake has sprinkles made using the 'Frozen Treats' Framelits Die. You can see the glitter in the frosting/icing which is fun to add in.

Here is the Frosting/icing recipe from Sara Douglas:
Approximately 1/4 cup Corn Starch
1 tablespoon white acrylic paint
1 tablespoon white glue (multipurpose or school glue)
10+ drops of reinker of your choice (for color)
Add water for desired consistency.


Unfortunately, the 'Pool Party' ribbon I have used has already sold out with the Retiring Products. The Square 'Stitched Shapes Framelit Die' makes for a lovely layer to my cupcake.

Thankyou so much for visiting and I hope you can join in with this weeks Challenge. It's such a fun theme! D x

International Project Highlights - 'Masculine'

Today, I am taking part in an International Project Highlights using Stampin' Up! products, organised by the very lovely Kylie Bertucci.


The theme for this months Blog Highlight is 'Masculine'. 
Hands up who has trouble designing/creating/making a card for a man? 
I know I do, but I think I have found a great idea to create something for the man in your life. Well, the sports loving kinda man.

I am totally loving the 'Happy Birthday Thinlits Die' - available 1st June, 2017 in the NEW Annual Catlogue. That's 15 more sleeps, peeps.

And for those who have no idea what my creation is... 
*it's the Tri-Colours and emblem of an Australian Rugby League Team; the Sydney City Roosters. The only Foundation Club remaining in the National Rugby League (NRL) established in 1908 and still going strong!
(*Very important information from my Rooster's tragic supporter husband)

As I finished stamping my Rooster, from the NEW 'Wood Words' stampset and about to die cut that little guy with the coordinating 'Wood Crate Framelits Die', my almost 9 year old (in 9 more sleeps!) came by and said that he has to have it for his Birthday card. Another Rooster's tragic supporter in my home!

I created another NRL project a couple of weeks ago - see my 'Rabbitohs' Birthday card here.

Thankyou for visiting, and I hope to have inspired you with my footy card creation? Imagine the team colours you can create with! 
Oh, before you go, I would love for you to vote for me. 
Pretty please. D x
