Welcome to my blog and the latest Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. Our hop feature products from the Coordination Product Release. This release is available for everyone (demonstrators and customers) to order now. These products will only be available until 31st March, so you might want to put in an order soon.
The cards I created on our last product release hop featured the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. Those dies paired with the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. To see my previous post using these products, click here. I fell in love with the font in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set ,so it was the one I reached for last week to add to cards for out latest hop. I felt this sentiment worked really well for my get well cards.
The cards I’ve created for this hop feature the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper from the product release. This pack of DSP has gorgeous colours, patterns and images on the reverse side that coordinate with various punches. Can’t tell you how happy I was to find that the Umbrella Builder Punch coordinates with the umbrella images on the DSP! The punch also cuts the handle of the umbrella on the DSP. So that means no fussy cutting which saves time and allows you more time to keep creating!
The first card I created is a square card that features the pretty gingham DSP in the background. I then added four squares of Whisper White Cardstock and punched three different coloured umbrellas. The sentiment and a Basic Rhinestone finished off this card.
The second card also features the Blushing Bride gingham DSP. I punched one umbrella and handle for this card. Behind the umbrella I daubed the Whisper White Cardstock with Balmy Blue Ink and dropped some water directly to the cardstock to create an interesting background. You may notice the handle is longer on this second card. To extend the length of the handle, I cut it through the centre, moved it apart and layered the sentiment over the top to hide the join. Three Basic Rhinestones finished off this card.
The next hop along the way is the fabulously talented Nina Waldschmidt. Click here to take you to her blog or click on the button below. Make sure you check out the whole hop to see what samples everyone has created with all the products available.
