Simply Stitched All Around For #GDP168

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP168.  This week, we are CASEing a gorgeous card by the talented team member Sarah Berry from the U.K.  CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit.  Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the theme, the images - whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.  Here is the project this week that you can CASE:
I decide to CASE the layout of the challenge card. I used the stitched all around stamp set to make this clean and simple birthday card. The colors are Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White with a few frosted enamel dots. I added a small background frame of the lovely lipstick card stock for added pop on my card.  Below is a slight different variation of the card without the added enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project:

Stampin' Pretty Pals December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with “All That Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine.  Maybe even a little of both.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this card I chose the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating framelits.  I heat embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder and my heat tool.  Nothing says sparkle and shine to me quite like stars...I have always found it to be so peaceful in looking at the twinkling stars on a clear night.
I used silver foil for the additional stars and the center of the large star.  I love how the silver thread gives it that extra bling!  For a snowy background look I added some white craft ink to the swirls and curls embossed night of navy piece.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s hoppers. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.  Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 9, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share projects “From the Heart”. Don’t miss the fun.

    Making Christmas Bright for WWYS198

    Today I played along with the weekly challenge called What Will You Stamp - WWYS198.  Each week they choose a stamp set that you can use to play along with their challenge.  Have fun and play along this week.
    For this card I used some pretty snowman ribbon for the focal point and then punched the sentiment using my classic label punch.  I ran the silver foil sheet through a snowflake embossing folder for that added twinkle in the background.
