Global Design Project - Colour Challenge #gdp125

 
 It's a Bright Colour Challenge for this weeks Global Design Project #gdp125, and I think I have made it in by the skin of my teeth!
 
http://www.global-design-project.com/2018/02/global-design-project-colour-challenge.html
 
Seeing as it's Chinese New Year and celebrations are happening around the world, I decided to create something using the 'Color Me Happy' stamp set.
 
Holly Stene inspired me greatly for this creation. Ever since Holly created her lantern themed cards, I have wanted to create something similar.
For this Challenge I have used the 'Color Me Happy' stamp set + 'Aqua Painters'.
Holly used the 'Color Me Happy' stampset + 'Stampin' Blends'.
 (You can see Holly's creations here)
 

Stamping onto 'Shimmery White' cardstock, I coloured my lanterns using an 'Aqua Painter' and the 3 Challenge colours.
Starting with the 'Daffodil Delight' in the middle, then adding the 'Dapper Denim' & 'Melon Mambo' from light to dark.
 
I stamped onto 'Whisper White' cardstock for the string and the 3 lanterns. Each coloured lantern was fussy-cut and a 'Stampin' Dimensional' added to the back, then adhered to the card.
I added the sentiment using 'Labeler Alphabet' stamp set.
 
Thankyou for visiting. I'll see you next time. D x

Hi there and welcome to my blog.

The stamp set 'Blossoming Basket' and the 'Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder' are a Level 2 Sale-a-Bration item; earn these for FREE when you spend $180AUD.

I have coloured my image using 'Stampin' Blends'; 
'Calypso Coral' & 'Old Olive' for the blooms and leaves, and 'Crumb Cake' for the basket. I touched a bit of the background with 'Light Pool Party'.
I swiped the 'Crumb Cake' ink pad over the embossing side of the Embossing Folder prior to going throught the 'Big Shot', to give some depth to the weave.

'You are Loved'
My creation needed some 'Linen Thread' and a bow. And the most darling little tag attached to the basket!

Here is a Stampin' Up! YouTube video showing you the 'Blossoming Basket Bundle', and also some tips on using the 'Stampin' Blends' and 'Aqua Painters' to colour the 'Blossoming Basket' image.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Colouring

It has been a while since I have hopped with the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. I'm Denita from Australia, and this month it's all about 'Colouring'; one of my favourite things to do is colouring!
I am in love with the NEW 'Stampin' Blends' which was my go-to for this Blog Hop.
Thanks to the gorgeous Jessie Holton for organising the SDBH every month.


I made notecard sized cards measuring 3 1/2" x 5" for my 'Colouring' creations. Anyone for tea?

With my 'Stampin' Blends', I coloured the teapots & teacups from the 'Just Add Color Specialty DSP'. And I did a little fussy cutting. The teapots are adhered onto the card front, and I added 'Stampin' Dimensionals' to the teacups.

'Come, let us sit together and drink tea' is the perfect sentiment to add to my little tea-themed notecards. The sentiment is from the 'Balloon Celebration' stamp set. 
'Stampin' Blends' used; 'Crumb Cake Combo Pack', 'Daffodil Delight Combo Pack' & 'Pool Party Combo Pack'.

I stamped the background using 'Crumb Cake' ink with the wheel like stamp & the dotty circle stamp also found in the 'Balloon Celebration' stamp set.
'Stampin' Blends' used; 'Daffodil Delight Dark' & 'Smoky Slate Light' Markers with 'Calypso Coral Combo Pack', 'Crumb Cake Combo Pack' & 'Old Olive Combo Pack'.

'Stampin' Blends' used; 'Cherry Cobbler Combo Pack', 'Crumb Cake Combo Pack', 'Daffodil Delight Combo Pack', 'Pumpkin Pie Combo Pack', 'Old Olive Combo Pack' & 'Stampin' Blends Colour Lifter'.

Thankyou for visiting my blog, and I hope you have enjoyed my 'Colouring' creations? 
The list of all 20 participants is below, and you can click on Joanne Hodge - after me, and hop around to see what everyone has created. I can't wait to see the 'Colouring' splendour from some amazing & talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. D x

'Be You'
I couldn't go past the Unicorn from the 'Magical Day Bundle' for my creation. I saw the colours for this Challenge, and I just needed to make me a Unicorn.
The 'YOU' is from the 'Celebrate You Thinlit Dies' in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure

I added 'Shimmery White Embossing Paste' to the clouds and they look gorgeous.

I had to make a matchy-matchy gift box too.

The lid of the box is made from the 'Myths & Magic DSP', and 'Pool Party' cardstock for the box. 
All wrapped up with the pretty 'Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon'.
