Happy Together for #GDP049

“Be strong… and believe in miracles because anything…anything can happen.”

~Marlo Javidando

These summery colors are the stars over at http://global-design-project.com this week!  The “to the lovelely pair” pears are stamped with Silhouettes & Script, the “congratulations” is from “Something to Say” and is heat embossed with gold embossing powder, the background “splatters” are stamped with Gorgeous Grunge, along with the lines that the pears are sitting on.  The gold “ties” are cut out with the Sunshine Wishes Dies, and the little heart is from the new In Color Enamel Shapes.  The sentiment on the inside of the card is heat embossed in gold and says “happy together”, which is from “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set.  Thank you for the weekly inspiration Global Design Project!  Happy Stamping, Dawn  P.S.  Stamping Peacers…our next classes will be on August 29th and 30th.  Looking forward to seeing you.  xoxo

Celebrating for #GDP048

“Every day is a good day.  There is something to learn, care and celebrate.”

~A. Ray

Good day, stampers!  Hope you are having a fabulous summer.  Busy here…made this card on Monday and just getting on the computer to post it!  The challenge this week over at http://global-design-project.com is a “case the designer.”  I went looking for balloons and came up with these.  It’s so funny where challenges lead us, I had never used this stamp before, but for some reason it just popped out at me.  I love how challenges inspire and stretch us.

The balloon image is from the 2013 Ronald McDonald “Tag It” stamp set, the background dots are from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and the happy birthday sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  Cardstock and ink colors are Blackberry Bliss and Garden Green.  Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer, Dawn.

Anchors Away for #GDP047

“The one good thing about not seeing you is that I can write you letters.”

~Svetlana Alliyeva

It’s a nautical theme over at http://global-design-project.com this week and I was inspired by my neighbor Whitney who came over to use the Acorny Thank You stamp set for a military parachuting card she had made.  That gave me the idea to use the same sentiment, but with the anchor from The Open Sea stamp set.  The anchor rope is made with the Party Pants stamp set and the water is made with the Timeless Textures stamp set (Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay Inks).  Hope you are enjoying some water days this summer!  Cheers, Dawn.
