This weeks Global Design Project challenge is ” CASE the designer” Tanja Kolar. Since we have a pretty liberal requirement on this challenge, what I chose is her grouping of objects as a focal point. Tanja uses balloons. I am using flowers. And because I really love how Watermelon Wonder plays off Crumb Cake, I made that the color story for my “CASE” of Tanja’s card.
My card isn’t the only one CASEd from Tanja’s. Check out the others for this challenge at #GDP048 by clicking here! Or on the icon below.
This card design is for someone who doesn’t mind the challenge of stamping and cutting out a total of 10 die cuts! Intricate designs using dies cuts isn’t for everyone. But for me, I really love stamping & cutting out more pieces than I need and then “arranging” them much like a floral designer would in a vase. I have done quite a few cards using this technique and blogged about doing flowers like this before. I always say that your cheapest commodities in good stamping are paper, ink and patience! And don’t be afraid to use all 3 when designing a multi layer card.
Well, that is my take on this week’s challenge. An you should try it too! This is a fabulous challenge with stampers from all over the world.
