Global Design Project #GDP001

Welcome to my blog, and to get things started I have entered a Challenge.

Today is the day! A new blog for me and a Stampin' Up! creation entered into the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP001.

The Global Design Project is a brand new blog, as of September 7th, and the Design Team along with their creations are not only amazing, but so inspiring too. You must check out this blog and meet the talented Design Team and see their beyond amazing creations.

Every week will be a new Challenge, and this week is a Colour Challenge:
and here is my creation using one of my favourite stampsets 'You're Sublime'...

I am gathering some bits and pieces for a Housewarming Gift, and I thought a little packet of seeds for the garden is a great start. I created a little pocket from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and I made an envelope, using the Envelope Punch Board, containing some seeds. I have managed to use the three colours for the challenge, and at the beginning I was challenged!
 

A close up of some of the details - a tiny bow using Smoky Slate Thick Baker's Twine and a touch of Dazzling Details to the centre of the flower. Unfortunately, the bling of the glitter didn't come to life in my photographs.
 
All the flowers, centres, leaves and parts of the wheel barrow were fussy cut separately, and adhered to a stamped image. The front three flowers are lifted using Stampin' Dimensionals and the Dazzling Details added to the centre of the flowers for a lovely, glittery effect.
 

I am a bit nervous and excited all at once. I have finally started a blog and I hope to keep you inspired with my creations and keep you up to date with the latest products, Catalogues and ideas for your own papercrafting fun.

  5. Denita, this is so pretty. I love the embossed vellum gift bagged and all the little details you added. Thanks for the closeup of the tiny bow you tied with Thick Baker's Twine. It is amazing that you unwound that and were still able to tie a bow. Patience is a virtue! Thanks for playing along with Global Design Project.
