Global Design Project #198 Meets Paper Players 450
When I first saw the colors for the PP450, I thought that it would be difficult to put all these together on a card. However, I was absolutely wrong! LOVE the color combination of Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. WOW! I already knew I wanted to play along with GDP#198’s sketch challenge, so I combined the two. Above the Clouds photopolymer stamp set and coordinating punch seemed to just jump off the shelf for this card. I must say, I am pretty darn pleased with the result.
Here are the challenge banners:
Here’s my card:
While the colors are all current, the Blueberry Bushel In Color DSP comes from the 2018-2019 catalog. I stamped the striped DSP in Basic Black then colored in the top and bottom scallops. In order to get the separation showing between the balloon and basket, I realized I had to stamp it on white and then fussy cut the balloon.
Even though I knew from the beginning that the background needed to be Balmy Blue, however I really felt it needed some dimension. Therefore, I stamped some of the clouds from the Above the Clouds stamp set in StazOn Opaque Cotton White. Some of the clouds stamped very subtly, others came out somewhat darker. However, I think it works.
I chose the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. I’ve loved the fonts and sentiments from the sets release, and I think it will be one of my “keepers”.
The Granny Apple Green textured weave ribbon fulfilled the horizontal element from GDP. I really think it finishes off the card. Well, the ribbon and a bunch of dimensionals. Dimensionals provide depth and interest for the Balmy Blue layer, the sentiment, and all 4 balloons.
I already know to whom I am going to send this fun card and I can’t wait to get it out in the mail!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I greatly appreciate the fact that you took time out of your busy schedule to check out my card.
Have a Peachy day!
