Global Design Project #GDP109

Hello and welcome! Global Design Project #GDP109 is a lovely colour challenge of Gold, Basic Black and Olive.

When I saw the colours I decided that this week instead of making a card I would start my Christmas gift wrapping early and showcase some of Stampin' Up!'s beautiful Designer Series Papers, ribbons and pretty embellishments. When it comes to gift giving I always like to add some extra decorative touches to the wrapping so I have decorated some small boxes with ribbons and belly bands ready for Christmas. They are empty at the moment but when I get around to doing my Christmas shopping all I need to do is slip the belly bands off, fill the boxes and pop the belly bands back on ready for giving.

To decorate my little gift boxes I pulled out just about everything in my craft stash that was gold, black or old olive. I then sat down and just played around with all the pieces I had found. 

Of course I had to use our  beautiful Merry Little Christmas DSP and Merry Music Specialty DSP just made for this challenge.
Gold embellishments combine beautifully with these papers. The metallic Foil Snowflakes, the Year of Cheer Embellishments, the Green Sprigs and the cute little Boxwood Wreaths are just a few goodies from our embellishment range to add finishing touches to my gifts. A little hint as well. You will notice that the Mini Ornaments on page 12 of the Holiday catalogue come in silver but notice that mine are gold. Did you know that you can often emboss elements to change their colour as I have done? Just do exactly as you would do when heat embossing your stamping:- roll the embellishment in your versa mark pad, dip it in the desired colour embossing powder and heat set it with your heat tool.
I have also added some die cuts and have made a mini shaker frame embellishment. I could have kept going but at 1o'clock in the morning I thought it was time to pack up. 😫

While I still had everything out yes I had to make a card. What the heck.

I have kept the gold, black colour theme and added a tiny Old Olive Enamel Shape and Old Olive Bakers Twine to meet the Global Design Project's colour challenge.

You will find all the supplies I used to make these projects in my Online Stampin' Up! store

Also you need to know the designer series paper is on sale for the month of October! For every 3 packets of the selected designer series paper you purchase you receive another pack for FREE!
