Every year, Stampin’ Up! holds an Artisan Award contest where demonstrators from across the US and Canada can send in their best work in the hopes to be select to win free product and a chance to be on the Stampin’ Up! design team for the next year. I sooo wanted to apply this year but having a baby that doesn’t go to bed until midnight and a toddler who is up by 8 didn’t give me as much time as I hoped to get the 5 cards, 3 scrapbook pages, and 2 3D projects done. So, I missed the deadline this year but that just means I can show you some of the projects I was experimenting with when I thought I might still enter. 🙂
This was one of the first cards where I started playing with a bunch of my new goodies! I had the new Besty’s Blossom stamp set and the new Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon highlighted in the card (get your sample of this ribbon in my ribbon share!).
But then I took the big flower image and got a bit fancy with it! I covered it with glitter but then decided I needed to accent the center, so I used my Boho Blossom punch to punch out a flower shape out of the center of a second stamped image of the flower. I glued that to the center of the glittery flower and then added one of the new faceted buttons as the center point.
It was hard to try to get a pic of the faceted button. 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with more cards to share!
Get in on the excitement of the new catalog!
