A Good Day

Hello and welcome. I'm so pleased you called by for a visit. It's time for the Global Design Project Challenge again. WOW! it comes around fast, the weeks just fly by. Global Design Project Challenge #GDP129 is a colour challenge.  

For this week's challenge I used the stamp set A Good Day which I find very cute and has been sitting on the shelf begging to be inked up. My thoughts were to keep my colours subtle by water colouring the tiny images.

I was a bit disappointed as I was wanting to make up a set of Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes found in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue but I had used them all for classes and other projects. All was not lost however. I cut my Calypso Coral cardstock to the same dimensions as the notecards in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and found a great site to calculate the exact size I needed to make my envelopes with my Envelope Punchboard. The site is called Envelope Generator and yes 'there is an app. for that'. Time to order some more note cards I think.

The Mini Embroidery Hoops are perfect for framing these little images. For a Calypso Coral bow accent I ran my Light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend along the length of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine to get the coloured twine I needed.

I have also added 3 more cards made with this set. Even though I love the foil side I flipped the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper to it's back side to give me a natural look cardstock for the front panel.
The banners were stamped with the Thoughtful Banners Stamp set and punched out with the Duet Banner Punch. I drew a line between the top and bottom of the banner to highlight the sentiment a little better.

   For the Lemon lime Twist Accents I punched out some cardstock circles in varying sizes and adhered them to my card front, then applied dots of glue with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen allowing them to dry without touching them.

You may notice that for all my projects today to achieve the result I was planning I have altered the purpose of the products for which you would usually use them for. This shows how versatile Stampin' Up! products can be.
