Global Design Project #GDP012 and Online Extravaganza Starts Today!

I am honored to be the Guest Design Team Member for the Global Design Project Challenge this week. Global Design Project is a team of demonstrators from around the globe who offer weekly challenges based on different themes. This week, Brian King from the United States is hosting the challenge and the theme is "CASE the Designer". I was instructed to be inspired by either the theme, layout, the colors or particular stamp sets. Here is his card:

I ended up being inspired by the layout. All products are Stampin' Up!

Are you wondering how I adhered the vellum without adhesive showing? I adhered the bottom of the vellum under the Whisper White cardstock layer. On the top portion of the vellum, using a toothpick, I simply put a teeny tiny bit of Tombo Multipurpose liquid glue under a few of the gold splatters. Worked like a charm.

Artfully Yours,



  1. Kim - Your project is breathtakingly beautiful. So soft and yet so bold. I love the gold, layered snowflakes with this soft Pool Party backdrop. I'm so happy you were able to be a guest on our challenge this week and so honored that you were able to create something so beautiful based on my silly penguins. Thank you for playing along!

  2. What a great tip about using a toothpick for spot application of Tombow under vellum, Kim! While you have used the same layout as Brian's card, your card has a completely different feel to it. I love the soft colours in the blue, gold and white, which gives the card an almost regal look about it. It's wonderful to have you join us at Global Design Project this week as guest designer Kim!

  3. It was delightful having you join us this week at Global Design Project. Your card is stunning, with the rich gold paired with soft blue.

  4. OMG this card is stunning. Love what you have done here!! HUgs from Scotland.

  5. I do not think I have done blue and gold before like that! I love it!

  6. Kim, this card is just beautiful. The gold is stunning against the blue and I haven't seen these snowflakes used in this way before. Inspiring.

  7. Welcome Kim, thanks for joining us and for amazing us with your beautiful card. I hope you enjoyed taking part this week, we loved having you craft alongside us x

  8. So incredibly honoured you could join us this week over at the Global Design Project Kim. Apologies my comment is a bit late.
    I LOVE the colour combination and the choosing the layout and theme was genius - it is a great layout! A stunning card, thank you so much for sharing it with us this week. xo
