Ornate Garden Thank You Card for Global Design Project Color Challenge #GDP233

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am excited to be the guest designer for this month's Global Design Team's Color Challenge.  My card today not only feature's this month's Global Design Projects Color Challenge colors but I decided to use some new products that will be coming out on April 3, 2020.  I used products from a new suite of products from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at my card.




And here's this month's Colors for this month's Global Design Project Color Challenge.  

The lovely flowers in the Ornate Garden Suite Collection are a modern take on classic Victorian florals. The gold foil accented paper, gems, and shimmery ribbon will add sparkle and elegance to your projects. You’ll love what you can do with this versatile collection. Share your gratitude with the included sentiments or pair with any sentiments for all-occasion projects.  For my card I used both Stamp Sets in this suite, along with the matching Ornate Layers Dies and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  


The other key part to my card is the Ornate Styles Stamp Set.  I used it for the main focus of my card and colored it with the all three colors from the challenge.  As Well as using the colors from today all through my card.  I love the multicolored embossed and die cut focal image.

Ornate Garden Inside Out Card - The Spot #101

Hello and welcome to my blog; and the second challenge for The Spot Weekly Creative Challenge.  This week we have a fun sketch challenge for you to play along with.  I also have a little sneak peek of some new products from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Yes, I said new products!  These products are part of a Early Release Suite from the upcoming Annual Catalog and it's called Ornate Garden Suite and I just love the products in this suite.  Here's a look at my card.


Here's a look at the challenge image that inspired my card today.  You can click on the challenge image or here to go to the challenge blog and see what the design team came up with.

Tips & Tricks: 

Inside Out cards are actually easier to do than you may think it just takes a little planning.  And, when I got my little box of new goodies the other day it was perfect to try.  The Butterfly Gala stamp set is currently in the 2019 Annual Catalog along with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  But it was the perfect match to this fun vintage floral patterned paper.  The inside out card takes two card bases.  I started with the first one and cut a opening in the front once I had my designer series paper on it.  


Part of the inside out card's focal point can be seen from the outside of the card.  While other parts are on the outside.  I have some of the butterflies on the outer must part of the card while others are in the second panel of the card.  


This is a look at the second panel of the card.  This is the panel right under the front of the card, and you can see their is layer through this one as well.  


Once all three panels are open you reveal the inside sentiment.  And you can see how each layer builds on top of the other.  Pretty neat right!  Thanks for dropping by today, and I hope you will play along with us this week.  The Ornate Garden Early Release Suite is available for Demonstrators to order now, but will be orderable for everyone starting in April.  So if you want to get your hands on it now it's a great time to join my team of Kinsmon Crafters.
