Global Design Project 121 is a color challenge this week using Bermuda Bay, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  I’ve seen some beautiful two-color cards with Heartfelt Blooms (Sale-a-Bration catalog), and really wanted to use the stamp set, so I thought this challenge would be wonderful for the set.

Here’s my card:


There is a trick to using this gorgeous stamp, though, and I’m so pleased I saw some comments from other SU demos who shared the trick:  less ink is better.  You do need to cover the stamp with color, but don’t overload it.  Definitely play around on scrap paper a few times before trying it on your cardstock (you should see the current sheet of grid paper on my desk).

Bermuda Bay and Peekaboo Peach were easily covered with the bloom stamp, and I used peach for the sentiment, Bermuda Bay for the bottom base layer and the ribbon.  I have Sweet Sugarplum just peeking out as a second layer and I cropped a Stitched Shapes circle to go behind the Pretty Label punch-out.  I really wasn’t sure how the Sugarplum was going to work with the other 2 colors, but I am pleased with the contrast.  Maybe I need to try the same card again with another main color combo…….something to think about.

Make sure you check out the cards from the design team, and especially from the guest designer, Julie DeGuia, for her adorable card!!

Have a Peachy day!
