A Country Crate of Blooms

Stampin Up Jar of Love Bundle Wood Crate Framelits Inspire Crete Challenge #022 GDP#147 Anytime card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

This photo really does not do this card justice. The color and dimension is so much fun. My card was inspired by two challenges this week that provided the color palette and the other the theme.

Country is really not my style but I think this bushel of flowers is sweet.

I did a light watercolor wash of Coastal Cabana for the background. I used Shimmery White card stock for the background and all the floral elements. I love the subtle shimmer.

A Broadway Bound Birthday

Stampin Up Broadway Bound DSP Birthday card idea Picture Perfect Birthday Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

The Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper (DSP) is scrumptious with Black, Gold, Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist and Gray Granite. The black and gold patterns provide a lot of glam while the other patterns are bright and festive. The photos don’t do this card justice. The bright sun mutes the bright colors. It is bold and bright in person.

A strip of black card stock anchors the DSP focal point that was adorned with Lemon Lime Twist fringe. Can you see the small Silver Metallic Pearls on the Lovely Lipstick bursts along the top of the DSP?

The inside sentiment and fun detail on the envelope are from Picture Perfect Birthday. I love the fonts and sentiments in this stamp set.

This is for my sister-in-law who loves celebrating her birthday … all month long.

Thanks for stopping by!

En Route Suite for #GDP146

Stampin Up GSP145 EnRoute Suite Memories and More Congratulations card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

I love the Sketch Challenge over at Global Design Project #146 this week. Check it out.

GDP146

With every new Stampin’ Up! catalog I get excited about the new products, invest in them and sometimes never use them. This really makes me made at myself. So this year I was more discreet in my investment AND have focused on creating several projects using one stamp set at a time. Right now I am focused on the En Route Suite.

Being the mom of two twenty-something sons who live in large cities hours from us, I love to find products I can use to create cards to send to them. This suite is perfect.

Stampin Up EnRoute Memories and More Congratulations card ideas GDP146 Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

This suite includes a stamp set, Designer Series Paper (DSP), a Textured Embossing Folder, Washi tape and a Memories and More card set. (This is what Stampin’ Up! excels at; total coordination of colors and products making creating so much more fun.) The Memories and More card set is filled with great designs. I especially love the stickers which I used on my card and the sentiment cards. All the elements can be used on cards and are fantastic for scrapbooking vacations and other travel adventures.

The details of my project:

  • A2 card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″)
  • Mango Melody layer 31/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • Whisper White layer 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • En Route DSP squares are 1 3/8″ using the Layering Squares Framelits
  • Sentiments are from En Route stamp set
  • Transportation icons and flag are from the En Route Memories and More cards
  • Gray Granite ribbon

Color Challenge #GDP145

Stampin Up GDP145 Color Challenge Birthday Card Idea Stiched Framelits Detailed with Love Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

Today’s card has a clean design and was very quick to create. You can see there is very little stamping, my Big Shot did all the work. The color palette is the focus of the card and was inspired by the Global Design Project Color Challenge this week.

Typically I would layer purple and green together as I usually love that combination. However as I was creating my card Grapefruit Grove seemed to pop against the Fresh Fig more and I thought it would allow me to use leaves and stems to bring in the Mint Macaron.

I used the two middle square Stiched Framelits to create the focal point. The Fresh Fig frame was created using the larger of the two framelits and then adding a square from the Layering Squares Framelits. These framelits are an investment but you will use them over and over again.

The sentiment is from Detailed with Love. I adore the fonts in this set. The sprigs are from Bouquet Bunch Framelits and i added the sprig in Vellum as well as Mint Macron to keep an airy feel to the card.

I am awaiting the arrival of my SU order with my Share What You Love Artisan Pearls so I improvised and colored Basic Pearls using my Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends marker to add my finishing touch.

Wish me luck with the challenge and thanks for stopping by.
