Happy New Year to you my crafty friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed a wonderful and restful Christmas break. This week the Global Design Project is CASEing me! Such a fun way to kick off the year!
You can take any sort of inspiration from my card above and create your own project. It might be the layout, colour palette (Night of Navy, Pool Party + Watermelon Wonder or similar), balloon/party/birthday theme.
I decided to focus on the layout as I had some shiny new products to use from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue (starts 4 Jan). I began with some Watercolor Paper and dampened it a little where I planned to stamp. I then took my flower stamps and used the rock and roll technique to ink them up. Before I stamped, I spritzed each with a little water to make the colours run together on the rubber. Once I was happy with the amount of blending, I stamped them onto my wet paper where they ran even further. Once the flowers were stamped, I stamped some leaves as well and tapped my paintbrush to give some splatter.
Once dry, I added some die cuts over the top of my ink. I love that the die cuts give the flowers a defined edge but there’s still that element of artsy, mess underneath.
I mounted the card on a piece of Pool Party (seriously this colour goes with EVERYTHING) which I had stamped with the stripes from the Ready to Pop stamp set (a much underrated set). To finish, I added a bow, a tiny little tag and some Sprinkles, which are quite possible my new favourite product!
Note: SALE-A-BRATION starts in just 2 sleeps! Grab this stamp set + framelit bundle in wood-mount (my favourite) and automatically qualify for a free product! I’ve seen all the freebies available and I haven’t been this excited about SAB in years! You’re gonna love it! Check back on 4 Jan for all the details!
