Global Design Project #GDP020 - CASE the Designer Challenge
Brace yourselves ... this one is fantastic! In this challenge CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit Everything. Isn't that great!? Connie Collins made the challenge card, the basis for our inspiration. I'll jump straight to it because I adore the design!
I love the black & white background, the sparkle, the little hearts. Super excited about this challenge, and seen as Valentine's Day is just around the corner I will play along with the love theme. So, I decided to use my Stampin' Up! Project Life Love Story accessory pack and Stacked With Love DSP (from last year's Occasions Catalogue) for my cards. I'm a huge fan of black, I don't think there are enough cards out there with black, it amazes me I didn't come up with these designs sooner. This is exactly why you should also jump on board with these challenges!! Anyhoo, inspired by Connie's awesome card, here are 3 of the cards I made yesterday. The first card is my entry for the online challenge.
As you can see, I've used the gorgeous black & white stripe + the black base from the challenge card, and perhaps the heart theme. Apart my a sentiment on the inside of the card there wasn't really any stamping involved. This is the sort of card you could prepare as a kit if you were travelling. P.S I had a major malfunction with my original photo of this card but I was too quick to pass it on to Jemma (I have a little pop-up stall at Jemma's salon where I sell my cards in-between markets) so, I sent Jemma a txt early this morning asking her to send me a new photo of my card. Hasn't she done well!! Thanks Jemma - you're the best!! Now on to the other 2 projects I made just for fun!
If you are interested, I'll post a link for the items you could use to recreate these cards. Some of the elements are from retired stock however I will try to find great alternatives for you. Stampin' Up! ALWAYS have awesome products available, even when it feel like your favourites have vanished, they are really just replaced by new favourites. Plus, there is a high chance you'll see them again in the clearance rack at some stage so be sure to always keep an eye out for that.
