Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Colorful Season

Welcome to another ADT Blog Hop! 
I am sure you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations you will find on each stop around the world so with out further delay here is a peek at my creative contribution to this weeks hop...

I wanted to shine the spotlight on the awesome cards & embellishments that come in the Memories & More Card Pack. I'm a big fan of "bits & pieces" so I had fun layering some fun embellishments on my card! This was also the first time I got to play with our new embossing paste & it was kind of cool!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Christmas in July

Woo Hoo we are super excited to give you a sneak peek at the fabulous Carols of Christmas bundle!

This awesome product bundle is available to pre order by Demonstrator this month & will be available for customers to pre order on August 1st!
I must admit my family was a little perplexed as to why I was creating "Christmas" cards in the middle of summer & it took a minute to get a holiday groove goin' but I love how these cards came out!
I wanted to do something that was festive & fun yet simple so you could make a bunch if you wanted to...
That Color Theory paper stack is pretty much the coolest paper ever & really set the stage for these beauties. If you wanted to create a similar look you could always use the sponge brayer & white cardstock or even colored cardstock would yield a cool effect.
I used that awesome edge die to create the perfect size rectangle for my embossed greeting. Here is a quick video showing how to do that & finish the card-

Hope you enjoyed my creations!
Lets head on over to see what Holiday Magic Mindy has created for us~

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop- Simply Perfect!

Welcome to this weeks ADT blog Hop! 
It's always fun when we get to choose what products we want to play with & when we are talking about choosing from stuff out of the Brand Spankin New Catalog it's hard to contain the excitement!

I had the pleasure of designing a wedding card to teach my Stampers & I couldn't resist doing something in black & white... 

This color combo feels so timeless & versatile. Plus the Eastern Medallions thinlits just scream beauty & elegance to me. I added a couple of the flowers from the Seasonal Layers thinlits & the silver Glimmer Paper "Congrats" to make it pop!

Ok, let's hop on over to see what Mindy has been up to!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Eastern Palace!

Yippee! It's finally time to order your Eastern Palace Bundle!
And if for some reason you were on the fence...I'm pretty sure after you see all the crafty goodness the Artisan Team has in store today you will be ready to take the plunge!
Getting ready for Mother's Day & a beautiful box for a special gift was on the agenda so I busted out those fancy schmancy gold stickers to decorate my hexagon box.
As I started decorating the lid & realized I need something a bit more over the top so I die cut some of those amazing shapes out of Very Vanilla & used the Layering Circle dies to cut them out. I was super happy with how it all came together, take a closer look...

Ok, lets go see what Mindy is up to!
