A new week which means a new Global Design Project challenge! Believe it or not I actually managed to complete this on Tuesday but after a busy week I am only just getting around to posting my entry!
This week was focussed on a sketch. I've done a few of these in the past and I always find sketches really useful if you're stuck for a design starting point. They're great for any occasion and it doesn't matter what produts you're using and everyone interprets them differently!
And here is what I came up with...
I have used a selection of different products for this card and the colour theme I have used is Copper, Pear Pizazz and Very Vanilla.
These are the details...
Very Vanilla cardstock for the card base (11, 1/2" x 4", folded in half).
Pear Pizazz cardstock for the embossed layer. The emobossing folder I used is called Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This layer measures 2,3/4" x 3, 3/4".
Very Vanilla cardstock stamped with the leaf stamp from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in Pear Pizazz at random. This strip measures 1,1/4" x 4".
I have used a strip of the copper dot washi tape from the Affectionately Yours washi tape bundle along the edge of the embossed layer.
"Thinking of You" comes from the Crazy About You stamp set. I have stamped the sentiment once and cut them out individually. They are attached using Dimensionals foam pads.
"You" has been die cut using Copper Foil and the Hello You thinlits.
The Butterfly has been die cut using Very Vanilla cardstock and the detailled butterfly from "Bold Butterfly Framelits.

Have a great weekend
How nice is it to finally feel some warm sunshine this week??? Okay so it's a tad too warm for my pregnant body and hormones but it's so nice to not have rain!
It's that time of year again in our world, end of the school year which means...thank you gifts are needed for Florences amazing Nursery teachers! They do a fabulous job and she is always so excited to talk about what she's been up so and is really fond of her teachers. It's always nice to say thank you and there's no better reason than to say thank you to people for taking such good care of my precious little girl!
Thanks to Pinterest, I found a lovely little picture of some apples using the Curvy Keepsake Die and fell in love...as did Flossie!
The Curvy Keepsake Die has been around for a short while now and I must admit I don't use it enough!
Whenever I make anything for Nursery, I always like to make sure that Florence can help in some way and in recent months she has started to show a keen interest in my crafting (which I love!). She loves to stamp and stick and has mastered turning the handle of the Big Shot too!
I enjoyed making these little gifts, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Florence especially loved counting and putting the chocolates in the boxes, and sampling a few after (me too!) - she's now a fan of Mars apparently!
I'm looking forward to seeing her hand out her little thank you gifts this week, complete with matching card of course!
Here's a list of all the products that I used to make these gifts...
- Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die
- Festive Flower Builder Punch
- Reason for the Season Stamp Set
- Crazy for You Stamp Set
- Linen Thread
- Cardstock (Real Red, Garden Green, Early Espresso & Whisper White)
I hope you all have a great week and manage to stay cool in the heatwave! I've got my final 2 days at work this week before the summer holidays, hooray!
