The Be Inspired Design Team are hopping today and our theme this month is the "Brights Collection". I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! P lease be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team.  The Brights Designer Series Paper makes a great background for today's card. I water-coloured a flower from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo to co-ordinate with the Designer Series Paper, and added a scalloped, stitched rectangle for added interest. The flower was embossed in white which created a no-line look to the image but also made water-colouring the flower so much easier. I have created a YouTube video for this card. Please click on the image below to view the video. Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Brenda in Canada , I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Brenda has to share with us.

Hello and welcome to my blog! This week's Global Design Project challenge is a Case the Designer Challenge and we are caseing Janneke's gorgeous card below. I took Janneke's colour palette and layout as inspiration for my card. I love a blended background, it adds a really pretty element to any card. For my background I've used Tahitian Tide. I love adding a few splashes of water to the blending. It takes the colour out and adds another interesting element to the background. For a step by step tutorial on how I created my card please click on the Tutorial button. All products are listed in the tutorial and below. I've also created a video tutorial, click on the link below to watch! Please remember to head on over to the  Global Design Project blog  and check out all the fabulous creations made by my fellow team members and we would love to see your creations using this week's sketch. See you next week! MINI CATALOGUE – JANUARY TO APRIL 2023 The New Stampin’ Up!
