Global Design Projest #086

The cards I have made for today's post have been inspired by Global Design Project #GDP086 a sketch challenge by Julie De Guia.

The diagonal stripes in the sketch immediately reminded me of the stripes in the soon to be released 'Color Theory' Designer Series Paper Stack. The work of deciding how to blend the different tones has been done by Stampin' Up! so all I needed to do is to cut and glue. I die cut the very cute little wooden chair from 'Seasonal Layers' Thinlits as a background to the sentiment.
I can think of a husband and wife team considering retirement at the moment and joining the grey nomads so I think these cards will be set aside for them.

If you are wondering why you can't find the products I have used in the current catalogue it is because they will be released on the 1st of June in our new catalogue.
One of the great perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is you get a whole month before catalogue release to purchase and play with some of the new products first. Just another great reason to join my team.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. For more fun ideas to get your creative juices flowing pop on over to the Global Design Project website for some great inspiration. 

Bye for now. Happy Stamping!
