I finally received my Oh So Succulent Bundle in the mail yesterday, I literally couldn’t open the package fast enough! The amount of projects and cards that I’ve seen, combined with one of my upcoming classes (Succulent Garden Party), I really couldn’t get this set in my hand fast enough. I have been DYING to play with it…ok, well not dying, but as a fellow crafter you know how antsy we get when we’re waiting for a package to arrive!
I didn’t have anything else planned, so I basically dove right in to create this card for the Global Design Project GDP #074. This is the first time I’ve entered a design into any challenge, so I am excited to do so, and to also see what other designs other stampers have come up with. The only stipulation is that we need to create a design based on their sketch, which is what you see below. Though it is important to note that the sketch is just a guideline and we can make the project our own, which is where the fun and creativity come in.
For this card in particular, I decided to stick with some bright and cheery colours such as Sweet Sugarplum, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay; and of course I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and framelits dies. The sentiment is from the new Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. You can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more!
For this card I also used our new Watercolour Pencils. Let me tell you – these are a game changer when it comes to stamping! They can be used alone or you can use them with the Aqua Painter like I did to create a really beautiful watercolour effect. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pencils and will be using them for the larger stamps that I’ve typically left aside because I didn’t know how I should colour them in.
I am very happy with the results of this card. In fact, I made two of them so I can send them to my twin baby cousins for their 1st birthday!
Jump on over to the Global Design Project gallery and check out all the different interpretations of the sketch…and why not take the challenge and enter your own card!
