Love What You Do!

Hello and welcome! Today I have a card for you which was created for the Global Design Project Challenge #206. This week is sketch challenge. You can find out more about these challenges and see inspiration from the Design Team here.

I have a feeling that this offering might divide opinion! In fact, when I first decided on the colour scheme I wasn’t sure myself! But now I love it!

I’ve stuck very closely to the sketch as I thought I’d already gone pretty out-there with the colour combination.

Let’s make it…

The card base is Basic Black cardstock and I have adhered another layer of Basic Black cardstock on top of that. There is then a strip of Basic Grey DSP adhered to this layer, followed by a length of Copper Trim which is held in place using Tear and Tape on the back of the Basic Black layer.

I have stamped three of the small hearts from the Meant to Be stamp set in the NEW Delicata Celestial Copper ink (which is fabulous). This ink can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Autumn / Winter catalogue and is available in Celestial Copper, Golden Glitz and Silvery Shimmer. Don’t they all sound amazing?! Well, from what I’ve seen, they are! Note: Refills will also be available, hooray – you’re going to need them.

The sentiment piece is created from a 2″ circle cut from Basic Black cardstock using the 2″ Circle Punch, layered onto a 2.25″ circle cut from Basic Grey DSP cut using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. Again I have used the small heart stamp from Meant to Be and the Celestial Copper ink. The sentiment itself is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set. The sentiment piece is adhered using dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by another heart from Meant to Be, stamped in Celestial Copper ink and die cut using the Stitched Be Mine die set.

Until next time…
