Welcome to my blog and the last 2020 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop for the year.
I’m excited to share these projects with you but at the same time, I’m sad as this is my final hop as part of this amazing, fun and very talented team. The projects we have created are all made with the Posted For You Bundle.
This bundle consists of a fabulous stamp set – called Postage Due Stamp Set – with images and sentiments that fit the coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.
The first card I created has an embossed background with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and an ink splattered background – created with my Dark Smoky Slate Blend. I took some Cardstock and Sahara Sand Cardstock and punched out four rectangles with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. I played around with layering until I came up with the following layout. I then punched a Whisper White rectangle so the flower images popped with a white background. The flower images were stamped with Black Memento Ink and coloured with a combination of Magenta Madness and Smoky Slate Blends. I fussy cut these out and raised them up with Dimensionals. I took the circular postage stamp image and hand cut around the image. The sentiment I’ve added to my card is from the Postage Due Stamp Set – I’ve used the happy birthday sentiment on this card – as you can never have too many birthday cards in your stash. To finish off this card I added three Metallic Pearls in a triangle pattern.
The second card I created has a daubed Magenta Madness background that has been matted with a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock. I took my Dark Smoky Slate Blend and flicked some ink by taking the nib of the blend and flicking it against the lid. I then punched three pieces of cardstock with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and layered them with a circle punch of Vellum Cardstock. I stamped the round postage stamp image and cut this image out by hand. I added a strip of Basic Gray Cardstock and layered it under a sentiment from the Postage Due Stamp Set. Three Metallic Pearls finished of this card similarly to the first card. To add some texture, I ran my finger around the Whisper White Cardstock and roughed up the edges.
Take a look below at all of the pretty projects the team have created for you.
