Sketch Challenge| Global Design Project 018


Sorry for my slightly late post for today, been trying to catch up on photographing my projects this morning, and time sort of ran away from me a little bit! I’ve actually been quite prolific this weekend, and have made a stack of cards – which makes me feel so much better as I was beginning to think that my crafting mojo had up and left! but a stressful weekend of work On Call has led me back to my crafty stress relief!

Anyway, I thought I would take a sketch challenge today, I’ve been following the Global Design Project for a little while, but actually jumping in and creating anything for one of the challenges has been somewhat of a challenge in itself! Well, this week I’m on holiday from my day job (thank goodness!) and so am taking time to craft and blog. So this morning I was having a little browse through Facebook and was reminded of this challenge by the lovely Michelle Last.

So here is my take on this weeks Global Design Project Sketch Challenge!

Global Design Project sketch challenge 018

I love a good sketch challenge! speaking of which the Simple Sketched Saturday Challenge Blog Hop is back this week! Yay! I have been sitting on my project for this weekend for a while, I can’t wait to share! anyway, getting back to THIS sketch challenge…..

Stampin' Up! UK Global Design Project Sketch Challenge

I’m still trying super hard to cut into my packs of Designer Series Paper. I am determined not to have heaps of the stuff left at the end of the this Annual catalogue (unlike last year!) and so am trying to use papers more on cards. Now, I know I have sinned here; layering two patterns one on top of the other without card stock between, but somehow I think it works. I love this paper in particular; its the English Garden Designer Series Paper from the annual catalogue, it is gorgeous! I’m a sucker for colour and at the moment I am totally in love with all things Rose Red.

Stampin' Up! UK Just Saying Hello

The ‘Hello’ is taken from the Hello Stamp Set (in this years Sale-a-bration offering) along with that cute smiley face. Hello is stamped in Rose Red and fussy cut with my paper snips. I am not a world expert at fussy cutting, but I give it my best, and I’m fairly pleased with this effort. The smiley face and ‘Just Sayin” (from Crazy About You) are both stamped in Marina Mist, as is the flower stamp in the background.

I loved creating this card, and will certainly be taking the Global Design Project challenge again!

  1. I am so happy you were brave and used some of your DSP on this delightful card. The colours are gorgeous together and I like how you left the white space on the bottom half of the card. It really makes those colours sing! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us this week.

  2. What a fun card, Hannah! I love the combination of the Just Sayin’ with Hello. I was looking at that set the other day and might have to give it another try. Love it! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge!

  3. Wonderful creation Hannah, first time to your blog and I am super impressed by your work. I love how you take taken the sketch from Global Design Project this week.

  4. Love that you are incorporating DSP onto your cards, it adds a real splash of colour! Thanks for joining us this week xx
