Bithday Bash Set - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hi everyone! How have you all been? I just got back from a great trip to New York City with my mom. We had an amazing time, and I can't wait to go through my pictures to share some with you! In the mean time though, I have something awesome for you - another round of the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!


So I went a little crazy with the Balloon Bash Stamp Set and made a bunch of cards. This a super fun set, and it is even better when you pair it with the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper. The colors are really great and unique in this paper. My favorite part is the touches of gold foil, so it was easy to pull out my Gold Encore Ink Pad when making these cards.


All of the extra accessories make these cards fabulous! From Gold Fringe to the Calypso Coral Pompom and Bermuda Bay Sequin Trims, these card have tons of fun little details.


Of course with a set of cards, I needed to make a little box to hold them in. So I just made a basic box out of Kraft Card Stock and decorated with some of the features from the cards.

Build a Bouquet - Leadership Artisan Samples 2015

Hi all! I have some more Leadership samples to share with you today. I had planned on sharing a different set this week, but one of my pictures is missing. So, be sure to come back next week to see those awesome projects. The set of samples I have to share with you today features the Build a Bouquet stamp set.


This first picture is a scrapbook page featuring my adorable parents. This sentiment that is included in the stamp set just calls to paired with a wedding picture. There isn't anything too crazy on this page. The soft colors and flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack come together for a really pretty page.

I was really happy with how this card turned out! The flower and leafs come from the Bouquet Bigz Die - this is a must have! I stamped the Soft Sky card stock with the organic lines image in White Craft Ink. This turned out to be really soft and subtle, which really lets the flower shine!

This last project is probably my favorite out of all the samples that I made! I just couldn't resist making flowers with the Bouquet Bigz Die to make a wreath. I just picked up the twig wreath form and hot glued my flowers to it. Each flower has lots of layers with some stamping, but there is nothing challenging about making them as the die does most of the work. This was a lot of fun to make and is perfect for spring!

From the Garden Basket Full of Cards - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We have another fabulous round of spring themed projects for you. I wasn't crazy about some of these projects, but I love how this project turned out. I think you will love it too and have to have the products!



The great trick on this project is the double Berry Basket. I cut three of the basket pieces out of Silver Foil Sheets - two for the sides and one for the ends. The one for the ends I cut in half and added another piece of paper in the middle to make it longer. The edge on this basket is the beautiful floral trim from the Artisan Embellishment Kit. I just stapled around the outside of the basket for an easy but beautiful look. To finish the basket off, I made another one out of white card stock to line it. The basket ended up being the perfect size for some cards and envelopes!


For the cards to fill the basket, I decided to use the From the Garden stamp set and coordinating Handpicked Framelits. I wanted to keep a really soft and pretty look and to use some more of the pieces from the Artisan Embellishment Kit. On this card in particular, I embossed the flower in white on white card stock to give a really nice subtle effect.


There are these amazing laser cut pieces in the Artisan Embellishment Kit that I was struggling to figure out how to use. After a lot of trial, I decided to use the back side of them with a little bit of Pink Pirouette water coloring behind them. Again, this created a super soft and pretty look that I instantly fell in love with!


On this last card I just stamped that vine image multiple times, added a touch of ribbon, and a quick sentiment. It was super quick but it is still really fun and interesting. For the envelopes included in the basket, I stamped the flaps with the flower image in Pink Pirouette, like the lining of the basket. This was just enough to but the whole project over the top. This little basket of cards would make a great gift!

Buy Your Own Present! - Monday Montage

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop! I always look forward to these hops and can't wait to see what everyone made! Today, I have a birthday card to share with you that would be perfect for anyone.



When the Occasions Catalog came out, the B.Y.O.P. stamp set instantly caught my eye. I am a fan of giving gift cards, and this stamp set covers every occasion. On this card, I used the large B.Y.O.P.* stamp to create a fun background. I highlighted the asterisks with a White Gel Pen to make the connection stronger to the "*buy your own present" phrase. I'm really crazy about all the texture on this card with the Hello Honey Quilted Ribbon, Silver Glimmer Paper, and White Baker's Twine.


The inside of the card really completes it. The sentiments on the front don't really make that much sense until you read the inside. You could even attach the gift card to the open space with a little bit of Fast Fuse. This would be a great card to make multiples of to have on hand when a birthday sneaks up on you. Just pick up a gift card, grab one of these cards you already have done, and you are golden!

Painted Petals - Leadership Artisan Samples 2015

Hooray! It is Friday! I have some more Leadership samples to share with you today. This group of projects features the Painted Petals stamp set and Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper. If you haven't already, be sure to check out last weeks samples of the Best Day Ever stamp set. Also, be sure to see what the other North American Artisans made by using the blog roll at the end of the post.


This first card is such a pretty and summery card. I love the look of the Designer Series Paper. All you have to do is randomly fold it back and forth. Just remember to cut your paper longer than you want! The touches of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and doilies keep the card soft and pretty.

I love this sweet little banner! The banner pieces are cut from the Party Pennants Die in the Painted Blooms DSP and some Watercolor Paper. I just some simple layers on each of the banners with a little bit of stamping. To give the stamps a watercolor look, just spritz them lightly with water before stamping. The best part of the banner is the little pom poms made with the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine. I just wrapped the twine around my fingers several times to make the little poms; they were super easy!

This card is one of my favorites that I made for Leadership! The first thing I thought of when I seen the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine was to make a fun fringe edge. So I cut a bunch of little piece and adhered them to the back of my card stock with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also masked some of the polka dots when I was stamping to frame the "Thank You." The pretty vellum butterfly and shimmer from some Vanilla Smooch Spritz really took this card to the next level.
