Global Design Project #120 Case The Designer Challenge

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Global Design Project #120 Case The Designer Challenge

Hello and welcome! Finally, I’ve found some time to have a play with this new & fun Bubble Over bundle from Spring Summer Catalogue. And as my inspiration, I have used beautiful card created by amazingly talented Canadian demonstrator, Krista Frattin.

CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit

And here’s my card:

Bubble Over card dimensions:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Sky Blue cardstock: 5-3/8″ x 3-5/8″ (13.7 cm x 9.2 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 5-2/8″ x 3-1/2″ (13.3 cm x 8.8 cm)
  • Whisper White for sentiment: 6/8″ x 3″
  • White Vellum and Soft Sky cardstock for die-cutting
  • Whisper White 1/4″ Organza & Gold 1/8″ Ribbon: approx. 7″ each

First, I sponged the bottom of Whisper White panel with Soft Sky ink. To add some more interest to the background I lightly sprinkled the panel with water using big, dry brush.

I die-cut two bottles from the vellum. First I thought about creating ‘labels’ for my bottles, but I end up stamping straight onto the die-cuts. For this I’ve used two circle stamps from Bubble Over Stamp Set, one with a star and and second with ‘yay’ in the middle. You can’t really see it as it’s hidden under the banner. I also die-cut two straws from Soft Sky cardstock.

I played a bit with the placing of my elements and once I was happy, I assembled the card.

For the final touch I’ve scattered some clear epoxy shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes, also new from Spring Summer Catalogue. You will get 176 elements in the pack: 1 sheet each (clear and with glitter).

Purchase this amazing Bubble Over Photopolymer Bundle, add Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon to your oreder and you will earn for FREE level 1 product from Sale-a-bration Brochure.  Like this cute Designer Series Paper Bubbles & Fizz, that coordinates with Bubble Over Bundle. 

Above is just an idea, but you can add any product you wish from the brochure.

Stair Step Card With Festival of Trees

Good evening everyone. It’s Saturday – only week away from us moving a home! Yes, finally 🙂 There was so many things coming out in over a month that I thought it will never happen for us to moving hahaha. But finally everything gets into place. The whole new bathroom suite is waiting to be fixed, floor is bought, new soil pipe is on it’s place and the plumbing work will be finished on Tuesday. Plasterboards are nearly done as well – yay! I will tell you more in a coming week 🙂

Today’s project is not today’s for the true. It’s been waiting to be posted for few days now but always something get me distracted. But because I’ve got free hour or so I thought I will post it tonight 🙂

accordian card 2


I don’t have to tell you I love Festival of Trees by Stampin’ Up! Do I?! 😀 I absolutely adore this stamp set, and I will tell you it’s not the last project I will make using it 🙂

This is simple Stair Step Card. For the base you need piece of card stock that measure 9 x 4 1/8 inches (22.8×10.5 cm). Then score it at 1, 2, 3 4/8, 5, 7 inches  (2.5, 5, 8.9 , 12.8 and 17.8 cm) making “hills and valleys” same as on the picture:

accordian card 1

For two first “stairs” I cut two pieces of card stock that measures as follows: smallest 4 x 1″ (10 x 2.5 cm) and medium piece 4 x 1.5″ (10 x 3.8 cm). I glued them to the base 1/16″ higher then each “stair” starts. In imperial it’s around 2 mm higher. For the last stair I’ve cut the piece of cardstock which measure 4 x 3 4/8″. One half of that piece I run through the Big Shot using the biggest Deco Label. Then I took a piece of Lost Lagoon cs slighty wider and run it through the Big Shot again using the same size Deco Label to make a frame for the sentiment.

I’ve stamped  six different trees using Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate and Pear Pizzazz. I used different tree designs from Festivals of Trees. Also, for the “chain” stamp, I’ve used Versamark pad making so called resistant stamping technique where you stamp the details with Versamark and then stamp solid image on the top. The image stamped as first will resist the ink from second stamping 🙂 Then I’ve cut all the trees with coordinating punch. At the end I used the trimmer ( you can use scissors too) to shorten all of the trees so each one have different lenght now. I’ve attached them to the card with Tombow glue: three on the smallest stair and three on the medium one.

I took the piece of Whisper White (which I’ve run through the Big Shot before) and using stamp-a-ma-jig and Smoky Slate I’ve stamped the sentiment from Bright & Beautiful stamp set.

accordian card 3

Then I’ve glued the frame and a piece of Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon. To add more interest I’ve tied a little bow. Now I could glue it all to the card. It really looked good. But something seemed to be missing. So I took a strip of Whisper White and I’ve stamped “ho-ho-ho” and “merry christmas” from Good Greetings. For this sentiment I’ve used Lost Lagoon. I glued that strip to the first stair just below trees.

accordian card 4

Et voila – the card is done 🙂 I really think this stamp set is awesome. And even though for this card you can use different colours, different designs of trees or even different sentiments, but it’s still pretty awesome card! Don’t you think?! 🙂 If you like it (or not 😉 ) please leave a comment below.
