Global Design Project #084

I had made a promise to myself to participate in more design challenges. And even though this week has thrown me more than a few curve balls, I still managed to participate with the talented people over at the Global Design Project….just in time mind you, as a new challenge arrives tomorrow! EEEk!!

This week was "Case the Designer"
And we were very lucky to have the talented Michelle Last as our inspiration.

And here is her beautiful card, which we could use to inspire our own creation.

And here is my card. It is a bit of a step out of my comfort zone with this one…but I also promised myself to stretch my approach to card design too.

Hope you like it….it's a bright one!!!

Global Design Project #083

Happy belated Easter to you all…and this is why this post is SO late arriving this week. We have just arrived back from a week away down the South Coast, and upon arriving back, I realised that I have a few days left to enter into this weeks design challenge over at the Global Design Project

This weeks theme is Sparkles / Bling

And here is my contribution.

Thanks for stopping by!

Global Design Project #082

This is going to be a super quick post today, as we are away for Easter & I didn't pack my laptop...therefore I am posting this from my phone, which is not ideal. 

This is my entry to the Global Design Project for this week

This week was a sketch challenge 
And here is my entry

Kylie's International Blog Highlight April 2017

You may have already noticed…at the moment I am challenging myself to take part in more design challenges.

This challenge is run by the lovely Kylie Bertucci (who happens to be the No.1 Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia, and 8th in the world!! Impressive hey)

It is a monthly challenge and this is the first time I will be playing along. The theme for this month was "Wedding", and as I don't make too many wedding cards usually, this really was a challenge for me.

I decided to stick with using Very Vanilla, with a touch of gold and a splash of Blushing Bride…which  I thought was fitting ;)

I made both a card and an opening gift tag, as I figured the card usually goes into an envelope, so all the prettiness is hidden! So this way, there is a little something pretty on the outside of the gift too.

To vote for me please go to this link 
And by voting for me, it will up my chances of being able to participate in a fabulous international blog hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci.

Thanks for your support and thanks for stopping by!

Global Design Project #081

Another week…another entry for the Global Design Project. This week they are up to #081, and this week it was a colour challenge. 

This one I found quite tricky…but I have vowed to keep going with these challenges so I can stretch my creativity. And I must admit, I look forward to the upcoming challenge each week.

As you can see, we had to use Night of Navy, Whisper White and one other colour.
So the one other colour I chose was Wild Wasabi.
I am a very big fan of green, so I am very lucky that Stampin' Up! has such a great range of greens to choose from at the moment.

Once again, a bit thank-you to the organisers and designers over at the Global Design Project for allowing us to participate each week. You guys rock!

Thanks for stopping by!
