Global Design Project 112 – Colour Me Happy

StampinByHannah Global Design Project 112 – Colour Me Happy


So, I had planned for this blog post to go live this morning, but for many many reasons yesterday was a total write off, and so this evening appears to be the time.

This week’s Global Design Project Challenge is a CASE the designer. CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything… or Copy and Selectively Edit, depending on your point of view. I LOVE the card that the GDP have chosen for this weeks inspiration, and just HAD to have a go this week!

Global Design Project Watecolour Colour Me Happy Card using Stampin' Up! products

This card looks really complicated, but really it only took a few minutes to put together… even with the watercolour!

The flowers are stamped in Archival Basic Black ink onto Watercolour Paper. I am loving this stamp set, its called Colour Me Happy, and its a limited edition set released to celebrate the launch of Stampin’ Blends. It coordinates with a lovely card kit, although I think I have used it more on its own than with the kit! Here the flowers are watercoloured in Island Indigo ink, with Tangerine Tango centres. The background is coloured with Crumb Cake ink.


Card Base – Crumb Cake – 29.7 x 10.5 cm, scored at 14.85 cm

Basic Black card stock layer – 9 x 13.3 cm

Watercolour paper  – 8.5 x 12.8 cm

So Happy for You Card using Colour Me Happy from Stampin' Up!

The thing that really stood out about Connie’s card was the accents… I have recently been taking the backing paper off of White Perfect Accents for a hint of something on some of my cards. Today though, I thought I would try and taking the backing off some of the Glitter Enamel Dots…. and you know, it works! Peel away the coloured paper backing, and you reveal clear, glitter dots, Perfect for an accent!

The sentiment is also taken from the Colour Me Happy Stamp set, it is heat embossed in White onto a piece of Basic Black card stock, and the end finished with the Triple Banner Punch.
