I made this card with all of you in mind.
Today is Wednesday and this is the day I post my contribution to the Global Design Project’s weekly challenge. The challenge this week #GDP051 is to make a Food Themed card. So, I looked into my stamp sets and discovered that I do not have many “whimsical” type of stamps, and none at all that feature food items (except a birthday cake). I do, however, have a stamp set that has a little tiny apple. Thoughtful Branches has nice sized apple and also, Sprinkles of Life has a smaller apple with a nice etched design. I decided it would have to be the apple after all.
I can’t say that I planned out this card to look the way that it looks now, it just kind of came together this way. I grabbed a Crumb Cake card base, a layer of Serene Scenery and a layer of Blushing Bride. The images are stamped and painted onto Bristol paper (love this paper!) to allow me to let the color flow nicely. I added a background of clear heat embossed apples and painted in and around them for interest. For a bit of twinkle, I used some ivory sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards that work very well on a variety of card designs.
Here is a listing of supplies I used to make my card:
I like to think fondly of sharing my card ideas with you all, as this little hedgehog is sharing with his friend as well. I do want to mention that today is the last day to redeem your Bonus Days Coupons, so please don’t forget to use them before they expire. Also, Thoughtful Branches will no longer be promoted and only be sold while supplies last. If you like that set, get yours while they are still around.
I have some new events coming up in the next few months and another coloring video for you this Friday! Stay tuned to this website for daily inspiration and updates.
Thank you all for making it together, from my heart to yours!
