Global Design Project 004 | Case the Designer

Today is the fourth challenge for the Global Design Project and this week we have a challenge that you may not have played before. It is called "Case the designer". The best part about this challenge is that you can take ANY element from this card and be inspired by it. So you might base your project around the colours only - or something that was used in the card. Maybe it could be the theme - the choice is completely yours on how you interpret your inspiration.



Here is my card Inspired by Louise Sharp - 




I was really inspired by the colours of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and the Gold Glitter. I also loved the use of Crystal effects on her card and the linen thread. I always love Louise's signature of having layers of the same colour on the next layer but just 2mm less. It is so elegant and adds so much class to a card. These are the elements that I pulled off her card and was inspired by.



I love the use of the And Many More Stamp set with the sentiment along with the bitty banner framelits. I have embossed this in gold. I also used the flowers from the Awesomely Artistic and stamped off to give a more subtle addition to the background.


I also used Crystal Effects on the dragon fly’s wings. It was also stamped once in the soft suede and then the crumb cake.


Here are the colours that I used along with the Gold emboss and glimmer paper. Such an elegant combination. Feel free to pin the picture for inspiration in the future.

    1. I have always found it a hard set to use and when I got the idea to use it for this I wanted to jump at it! I think they were meant to be together this layout, colours and stamp set. :-)

  10. Today, Nicole my friend came up to me and said "Have you seen the latest card Kylie posted?" and I replied "the GDP one?" Nicole "Yes...is it not completely gorgeous!"
    I have to agree..it is completely gorgeous. All the elements of gold and crumb cake, the twine and the glitter, all combined so beautifully. Love this!
