Hello and welcome back! It's time for the next Artisan Design Team blog post, and we're focusing on autumn seasonal products including Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set, Basket of Wishes, and All Year Long Project Life. 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. And on top of their talent, they are fun and fabulous as well. Please keep hopping through all 20 so you don't miss a thing! Be sure to use something like Google Translate for those blogs not in your native language. Also, you can find all of our projects for the year in one easy place, on our Pinterest board, and this group of projects will also be featured on the Stampin' Up! Corporate Facebook page this Friday. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin, and I know you loved her amazing project as much as I did.
I chose to focus on the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set and coordinating dies, the Paisley Framelits Dies.
I thought it would be fun to cut off part of the front of each card base using the edges of the dies, and then insert stamps into the openings. I love how they turned out!
I trimmed off the bottom edge of the Mint Macaron card front, and then die cut the edge of the sunburst style circle twice and the scalloped circle once. Next, I stamped the scalloped circle in Cajun Craze, the sunburst circle in Rich Razzleberry and the smaller scalloped circle in Night of Navy onto Very Vanilla Cardstock. I die cut each of them using the coordinating dies, and then stacked and adhered the flowers together. I die cut the flower centers from Copper Foil Sheets, and adhered to the flowers with mini glue dots. I adhered a strip of the Mint Macaron patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper, which looks just like flower stalks! The flowers were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I tied a strip of the Rich Razzleberry ribbon to the top of the card front from the Ribbon 3/8" (1 Cm) Trio Pack. The greeting is stamped, cut into strips and adhered to the inside of the card.
For my second card, I used a similar concept, but with the paisley shaped dies instead of the flowers. First, I adhered the copper foil print paper from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card base. Next, I lined up the dies on the front of the card, adhered them with some washi tape and ran them through my big shot. I also cut the same 3 paisley shapes from Copper Foil Sheets, and then adhered them to the card base along the edge of the card front. I added a strip of the Rich Razzleberry printed paper to the card front, and wrapped it twice with the Night Of Navy Solid Baker's Twine.
I cut the same edges into a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, and adhered that to the inside of the card base for writing an additional message. The greeting is stamped on the inside of the card in Versamark and heat embossed in copper. I love that it can be seen from the front of the card as well.
Well, that is all for me today. Next, you'll arrive at the site of the lovely Michelle Long, who is sure to wow you with her project. Thanks for stopping by today!
