Whimsy & Wonder DSP

Tuesday 9 November 2021

It's been a while since I have taken part in the Global Design Project challenges so I was really pleased when I saw this weeks theme pop up as a card I created at the weekend fits perfectly - happy days!

The #GDP317 challenge this week is a colour challenge using Stampin' Up! colours Blushing Bride, Misty Moonlight and Mint Macaron.

All three of these colours are featured in the Whimsy & Wonder suite, which has been one of my favourite Christmas suites this year due to the non traditional colours and soft patterns.

I have challenged myself to create a card using each of the main patterns from a pack of DSP - so this time I decided to focus on the bauble pattern from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP. I started by adding a layer of this patterned paper as a background before fussy cutting some of my favourite baubles out of the paper (there is one bauble with a creepy deer on the font - I totally left that one out as I am really not keen!)

My OCD self really struggled with the random placement of the baubles however I did the best I could. I made sure some of the baubles went over the edge of the die cut Stitched Rectangles.

I found a silver pen in my craft stash and using a ruler I drew lines running upwards from the bauble hook to simulate string. I found it better to do this after all the baubles were placed.

The DSP does feature other colours but the main colours fit the brief of this challenge. You'll also find pops of Polished Pink and Mossy Meadow within the patterns too.

The patterned paper also has silver foiling on one side of the two sided patterns, you can really see it this in this photo. This is one of my favourite features -anything silver and I am hooked! 

I felt the card needed one more feature so I used one of the ribbons from the Flowers for Every Season combo pack. The Misty Moonlight twine, twisted with Basic White twine and also silver thread perfectly matched many of the elements in this card.

I thought about adding some gems but I felt the card was done. This card is more "busy" then my usual style so I decided enough was enough.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today!
