Welcome to the last blog hop from the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team 2012! I want to say a HUGE thanks to Stampin' Up! for this tremendous opportunity. It has been an amazing year and such fun to be part of an awesome team of stampers. I hope that you've found inspiration here on my blog as I've worked to bring new and exciting projects each week.
This week we're sharing our Facebook Projects with you from the Stampin' Up! page. Amy's blog is before mine, make sure you don't miss her project. I love the gorgeous pages she creates!
I am in love with butterflies! They inspire me so I made a framed keepsake with the Swallowtail Stamp for my craft room that sums up this year's experience on the team.
I stamped the butterfly on Coaster Board - I love this new product! I inked the stamp with Versamark, then Basic Black ink, and heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder. I wanted detail without TOO much black. The coloring was done with Stampin' Write markers in shades of Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry. The colors are a bit muted so I gave it a good spritzIng with Smooch in Vanilla Shimmer. The lustre it added blends perfectly with the color hues.
How about some fussy cutting? Yes, I did cut that butterfly out!
The background includes embossing with the Honeycomb folder, Off the Grid stamped in Encore Gold, Candy Dots and a Vintage Faceted Designer Button. The message to SOAR seemed perfect for the Silver Glimmer Paper we received in our box,with the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. Thanks to all at Stampin' Up! for the generous gifts you sent every month!
I hope as you continue the hop that you'll be sure to let us on the DT know that you appreciate our work this year. I'd love it if you'll continue coming to my blog as I have begun posting daily again. I hope you’ve been inspired by my work.
May your creativity soar!
Next on the hop is Erica Cerwin. Waving to you, Erica, it's been fun and an honor to be on the team with you.
