Flourishing Phrases for Global Design Project

Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project #138 sketch.  I needed some sympathy cards and this sketch gave me a starting point.

Global Design Project #138Click HERE to link see all the design team cards. Great inspiration for this sketch.

I went with monochrome colors for a soft and sweet sympathy card. I like Whisper White or Very Vanilla for sympathy cards. Every once and awhile I may use a light pink or blue. Soft and simple are my usual go to. It is always hard to make sympathy cards, so I do like to have a few in reserve. Do you keep them in your stash or do you like to create for each occasion?

Here is my Sympathy card:

All Very Vanilla with a tiny bit of Crumb Cake for an accent. I am glad this set, Flourishing Phrases will be in the new catalog. It is perfect for weddings, sympathy, and birthdays. Love a set that is multipurpose.

Did you watch the Royal Wedding today? It was lovely. I so enjoyed seeing all the pretty colors, flowers and the wedding couple seemed so happy. I wish them all the best. I might have to take a nap after getting up so early though!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Saturday!

Eastern Beauty for GDP#132 and Center Stage & OnStage Recap

What a busy weekend! I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Local OnStage Event here in Atlanta.

The Friday night event was CenterStage where a delicious meal was served. We were spoiled with lots of free goodies (new stamps, ribbon, etc.) and some awesome training. We also got to see the NEW Annual Catalog. You will not be disappointed-that is all I can share! 

Saturday was spent swapping cards, hugging new and old friends, watching demonstrations, playing with new products, and having tons of fun. One last team dinner Saturday night capped off a wonderful but tiring weekend. I had to take a nap after church (smile).

Several of my team members attended OnStage. Here is a group shot of some amazing ladies.

 Global Design Project  Challenge

Today I am joining the Global Design Project #132 CASE the Designer. The designer to CASE is Stesha Bloodhart. She always makes such lovely cards!

GDP CASE the designer

I decided to case her color palette; soft blues, yellows, green, and crisp white.

I have been obsessed with one-layer cards lately. I like when the card base is one layer and the top section/layers are the “card” part. Does this make sense??? Maybe the photo will make it clear.

Love & Hugs for #GDP120

This sure seems like it has been a long week. I think it had something to do with the UGA/Alabama Football game Monday night. It took until Wednesday before I recovered my lost sleep! It was a good game even though Alabama won.

 I am playing along with Global Design Project #GDP120 today. This is a case the designer challenge. This card by Krista Frattin is so soft and pretty. I love all her little elements and color palette.

My card is not soft colors! I chose to make a Valentine’s Day card using her card sketch as my starting point.

Take time to check out all the other cards in this challenge. I always enjoy seeing how others create a card …. They are all so different. That’s what makes us unique, we see different elements to use on our cards and projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.

 Happy Stamping!

Ginny
