Global Design Project 100 Challenge

They're celebrating their 100th challenge over at The Global Design Project this week. I watch the GDP design team with great interest but never really have time to participate so you can tell things are going well if I've actually inked up some stamps just for fun! This week the deal is simply that you choose one of the design team projects and make it your own (CASE). They will send their card to the winner and the overall winner gets some goodies from the team. Such fun! Hope you participate too!

I went with Shawn de Oliveira's Christmas card...

And here's my take...

I may have gone overboard with the layers. I think I counted 12! Haha.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Thoughtful Banners, Oh Happy Day
Inks: Soft Sky, Emerald Envy, Smokey Slate
Papers: Smokey Slate, Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic Designer Papers, Night of Navy, Emerald Envy, Soft Sky
Accessories/Tools: Linen Thread, Silver Glimmer Paper, Mini Sequin Trim, Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon, 2" Circle Punch, Duet Banner Punch, Classic Label Punch, Star Punch (retired) - Wood Crate Framelits has similar, Stapler


Thanks GDP for picking me as one of your winners! You guys rock!


  1. Well that's a bit snazzy! Love it.

  2. Colorful, happy and fun! Thanks for the CASE. And you can't have too many layers if they are all just right. Thanks for playing with Global Design Project.

  3. I LOVE this! It's so fun and would make a great card for anyone! (I would say it is a great masculine card... but I'm a girl, and I'd totally love to get this card too!)

    1. Thanks Natalie. You'd be right there - I sent it to a man! :)

  4. Oh, you KNOW I just love this! So many layers and so much deliciousness!

  5. Such cool layers, Susan! I love that you used such bright and cheery colors - in complete contrast to the colors Shawn used. Thank you so much for helping us to celebrate the 100th challenge of the Global Design Project! I'm glad you played along.
