Global Design Project 140 | #GDP140 | Case the Designer

Hello there stamping friends! I do hope your having a fabulous week and have even managed to get some creating and crafting in. I've managed to get some 'Me' time in at my crafting desk to create to play along, this week, over at the Global Design Project 140 | #GDP140.

This week is a challenge is to CASE the designer - Brian King. Brian is fabulous at clean, layered creations and he has a fabulous eye for colour. When scrolling through Pinterest I can always spot a 'Brian' creation before I've looked properly to see who has made it just by his stunning sophisticated cards and his attention to detail.

If you're not sure what CASEing is, CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit. So use the creation as your starting point and then change it up to make it your own. I've used the layers and the florals as my starting point for my card today and then my creation grew from there.

I've used the stunning and beautiful hostess set, Very Vintage. It's an eclectic mix of vintage things like flowers, doilies, beautiful fonts and sentiments. It really is a gorgeous set.  I'm loving it lots! How gorgeous are those flowers? Super pretty right? Either hold a Stampin' Up! Party with me and have $250+ AUD in sales at your party or place a $250+AUD order with me and you can choose this set from the offerings of the Hostess only sets from the 2018 - 2019 Stampin' Up Annual Catalogue beginning June 1st.

I stamped the flowers in Jet Black Stazon ink and then used my Aqua Painter to colour the image, using the colours Old Olive, Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody and Cherry Cobbler. Blueberry Bushel is a new In Colour from the 2018 - 2020 In Colour Collection and Mango Melody is one of the new colours from the colour revamp. They really look fabulous together here. 

For a subtle look I heat embossed the doily image on the Shimmery White cardstock using White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Just a little bit something extra to add to the card while not detracting from the bight colours in the flowers. To keep with the clean look, (well clean for me, Ha!) I added some of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, some Linen Thread, heat embossed the sentiment on Basic Black cardstock and dotted some beautiful Basic Pearls for more of that white on white look. 

Thank so much for stopping by!
