I made today’s card for this week’s Global Design Project color challenge. I used the beautiful Floral Statements stamp set to make a colorful thank you card. I stamped the large image in Coastal Cabana ink, then colored in the rest in Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green, using a Blender Pen and the Stampin’ Write Markers in each color to (try to) create depth. Coloring isn’t my strong suit, but I feel pretty good about how this one turned out. What do you think?
Here’s the GDP177 color challenge:

Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to4-1/4″ x 11″ , then scored in half at 5-1/2″
Stamped with the Floral Statements stamp set:
- main image in Coastal Cabana ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS
Die cut using the Rectangles Stitched Framelits:
- the stamped image
- a piece of Melon Mambo CS
- a piece of Granny Apple Green Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Colored using Blender Pens and Stampin’ Write Markers:
- flowers in Melon Mambo ink, first with the Blender Pen, then darker bits with the marker.
- leaves and stems in Granny Apple Green ink, the same way as the flowers
Assembled the card:
- burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
- DSP glued onto the front of the card base
- Melon Mambo CS adhered onto the DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals (I save the long strips around the edges of the Dimensionals for large areas like this.)
- stamped image glued onto the Melon Mambo CS layer
