Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Easter Lamb
February 03, 2016
Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! You're in for a treat because we have so much talent and so many different styles represented by these 20 women from around the globe. You might have just arrived from the lovely Krista Frattin in Canada! Either way, I'm glad to have you here. We're highlighting products from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions catalog this week.
This month I decided to use the Easter Lamb stamp and the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper from our box. I wanted to create one Easter project and one for some other occasion. Doesn't the lamb look cute with it's little birthday hat on? The hat and greeting is from the Hello stamp set, which is only available until February 15th, and is free with a $50 purchase. I stamped the lamb in Versamark ink onto Shimmer White cardstock, heat embossed it in white and then water-colored it.
I added some sequins, a white baker's twine bow and the hat and greeting with Stampin' Dimensionals. I also colored the little wood clothespin with a Blushing Bride marker.
I stamped the petite cafe bag with the birthday hat in Blushing Bride ink as well. It's subtle, but adds a little something to the plain bag. In addition to the patterned papers used, I also added Versamark ink to one side of the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, stamped it onto Shimmer White Cardstock, and heat embossed it in white. After that, I lightly sponged it with Blushing Bride ink.
This card is a larger size, measuring 5" wide by 7" inches tall. I used the embossing folder again as described above, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with sponging on the pink background piece of this card.
I really love this emboss resist watercoloring when the embossing is white. Isn't that little lamb image cute? The colors I used here are Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pool Party and Soft Suede to match the Birthday Bouquet paper. The lamb piece is also popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on both projects as well.
Well, that is all for today! Next, you'll want to move on to Michele Long in the USA and her fabulous project. Thanks for stopping by!
