SHARING WHAT I LOVE!

It has been a loooong time since I played at Global Design Project.  This fabulous challenge site will always have a place in my heart, after serving as one of it's designers for over a year, and I am still friends with many of it's members today!  I am playing along this week with GDP134.


I love the sketch the team has put up for us to play with this week, little realising that it would come to my rescue when I had to make an unexpected sympathy card.  I also had lots of new product to play with too, so here is a little sneak peek for y'all.



So I have used new stamp sets, new Designer Paper, new embellishments and I may have also used some returning colours to the Stampin' Up! range.  Can you guess what they are?  Actually, you don't need to guess because I have listed them below for you and you can get your hands on everything in June! Unless you want them in May?  Consider joining my team if you want them early!

All products used in these projects are listed below.  Click on the pictures below to shop 24/7!
If you live New Zealand, I would love to be your Demonstrator!

MYTHS & MAGIC - STAMP TO SHARE BLOG HOP


The Stamp to Share team are hopping this month with an awesome bundle of products - Magical Day!  I mean, what's not to love?  Magic, mystical creatures, Wizards and sparkles!!  The entire suite is magical really!

I chose to focus on the Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper.  Yep, you heard that right!  I know I don't normally feature DSP in my projects, but this is sparkly and fun, perfect for a His and Hers set of cards!

First up - His! What little boy wouldn't love a card with Wizards all over it?  To make this card even more magical, I made the inner a pop up, featuring another Wizard to wish the recipient a Happy Birthday.



I pretty much did the exact same thing for my "Hers" card, only I swapped the Wizards out for Unicorns instead.  I can't decide which is my favourite!  Which one do YOU like the best?

LIKE A PIG IN MUCK! - CREATING KINDNESS BLOG HOP


Each month the International Design Team of Creating Kindness come together to share a little inspiration around a theme.  This month is all about colour.  Colour is my thing!  I love all colours, but I especially love colouring in and creating scenes.  I am also into "cute". 

These little piggies are waaaay cute and perfect for colouring.  I broke out my Stampin Blends to colour the entire card front and inner, creating the sky and ground as I worked.  Alcohol markers blend so beautifully to create even coverage and can make anyone feel like an artist!



I didn't have anyone in particular in mind when I created this card, but I do like to have a stash of cards on hand ready to pop in the post whenever they are needed.  As a cardmaker, I tend to never have one when needed!  Typical.  2018 is the year I add to my stash!


Please stop by all the designers in this hop and leave a little comment love.  We really do appreciate it!  Next up is the wonderful Danielle Bennenk!
