Global Design Project #GDP108

Welcome! Global Design Project #GDP108 is CASE one of America's top Stampin' Up! Demonstrators the very talented Mr. Brian King.

I am finding the eclipse card design very popular with stampers at the moment and I really wanted to give it a try. So for the Global Design Project this week I have contributed my version of the eclipse design. I have incorporated the 4 layers from Brian's design on my card front to accentuate the sentiment and the hearts from the stamp set he has used Ribbon Of Courage. I have also taken Brian's original layout but turned it to a landscape orientation. 

This card has been made for a stamping friend of mine who has recently lost her only child. I can not even begin to image the grief she must be experiencing so I wanted to make her a special card. To step the card up I have copper embossed the images to give the card an elegant look.

Still playing with the eclipse design I have made a Christmas card using the same wreath from the Hello Friend stamp set. This stamp set also has a coordinating Hello Friend Embossing Project kit available for purchase separately. The kit gives you an opportunity to step up your card-making by trying different heat embossing techniques as I have used in these cards.

The Trim Tour Stocking Thinlits Dies arrived in the post while I had all my supplies out on my craft table so I couldn't wait to have a play. The little stocking took me 20mins. in total to cut and put together. Measuring 13cm in length the stocking is mounted on a pillow-box perfect for holding a small treat or gift card. I can see all my family members receiving one of their own this Christmas. The little stockings would also be perfect for an advent calendar. Watch this space for more of these little cuties. I'm in love.
