Falling Flowers GDP#093

Hello Crafty Friends

Our team had a gathering recently which included a shoe box swap. I totally love these fun events, I always walk away inspired and with a handful of cards. I got to play with a bundle I totally missed in last year's catalogue - but alas, thank the stamp fairies, the Falling Flowers bundle has been carried over into this year Annual Catalogue! 

My BBB (Big Brown Box) arrived this week with lots of exciting goodies from the new Annual Catalogue. (insert happy dance) Two sets that got inked up first were the Falling Flowers and Good Vibes stamp sets.

I adore the colour combination that is this weeks Global Design Project challenge #093. Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist look amazing together, such a striking contrast. Check out all the amazing creations using these colours here 
With loads of offcuts left over from making a few cards using the Naturally Eclectic card stock pack, I thought this GDP challenge was the perfect opportunity to use these scraps up, just having to swap out the Soft Sky for Pool Party. Cut strips of varying thicknesses and adhere randomly to make a colourful band.

The images from the Falling Flowers stamp set were inked in Archival Black and coloured using Stampin'Up! water colour pencils. The Flowers were die cut using the coordinating Framelits and adhered to Whisper Whisper card. The Pool Party, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist band was adhered to the lower half of a thick Whisper White card base, then the stamped Floral image layer was attached using dimensionals. The sentiment from Birthday Delivery stamp set was heat embossed in white on black card stock.

The second card has a Berry Burst card base, then a large card from the Perfect Days Memories & More card pack.  The Good Vibes stamp was inked in Archival Black and coloured using water colour pencils with an aqua painter. To finish it off, two die cut leaves using the Framelit from the Naturally Eclectic Die set were cut in Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist card and placed behind the stamped image.

We have the first of Perth's winter weather today, so its the perfect day to stay indoors and craft. With loads of birthdays in July, I have a busy day ahead. Until next time, stay crafty x
