Global Design Project #024

This week's challenge is to Case the Designer - which means to copy and selectively edit!

I love Michelle's choice of colours and how she has done the butterfly! What a great card to inspire us!

My choice of card this week is a baby card for a boy.  I had fun making my own speciality cardstock for the top layer using Sea Street for a nautical theme. The octopus I inked in Marina Mist and then used Night of Navy on a dauber to darken around the edges (maybe was a little heavy handed), but I like the overall effect! Add a touch of red for impact and it was done!

I would love to hear your comments!

Cardstock: Soft Sky for base, Whisper White for first layer and on tag, Marina Mist for top layer, Real Red for back of tag and Night of Navy for star

DSP: Night of Navy

Stamp Sets:  Sea Street and A Dozen Thoughts

Inks:  Marina Mist and Night of Navy

Punches:  2 1/2" Circle Punch, Star from Itty Bitty Accents and Modern Label (retired - I just can't quite give it up!)

Extras:  Dimensionals

Till next time



  1. Love this nautical look. Stampin the octopus in two tones is such a great way to add so much interest. Thanks for joining us at Global Design Project.

  2. So fun! I love the bold stripes in the background - very nautical. All pulled together perfectly with the lighter blue and red. I would have never thought to use the octopus for a baby card, but this one is perfect. Thanks you so much for playing along with this week's CASE the Designer Challenge at Global Design Project - I'm glad you did.

  3. Awesome nautical theme Deb - I just love the colours and stripes on this card. Thanks so much for joining in with this week's Global Design Project!

  4. Great coloring technique with that octopus! Thank-you for playing along with the Global Design Project!
