The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team are hopping for the final time this year. It wasn’t until I started typing that it felt real and realised that year has gone by in the blink of an eye! I’ve had the BEST time with these fabulous and very creative gals. We may’ve even had more than a few laughs. Actually, truthfully we’ve had a ton of laughs……mostly at me when Jackie was involved…… For the bottom of my heart I want to thank them all for their friendship, support, love and fun times and also a big thank you to Stampin’ Up! for this amazing opportunity xxx
The projects I’ve created for our final hop have been made with the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle and the Tags Tags Tags Bundle.
Next year we have a wedding in the family. As the best aunt ever, I decided I would play around with wedding favour ideas just in case I’m asked to provide some. If not, then I’ll offload them throughout the year with a Ferrero Rocher inside them.
I’ve created two different types of favours cut with my Mini Curvy Keepsake Dies because I couldn’t decide which I liked best – Crumb Cake Cardstock or Vellum Cardstock.
For the Crumb Cake ones, I added a Whisper White Cardstock tag cut with my Trio of Tags Dies. I added a sentiment stamped from the Mini Keepsakes Stamp Set on Crumb Cake Cardstock and cut with my 1″ Circle Punch. I took a strip of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and wrapped it around the box and tied a bow on top. Because I couldn’t stop there with embellishments, I added some Braided Linen Trim, a vellum sprig and created some roses and leaves to pretty up my tags.
The vellum boxes have been created in the same way as the Crumb Cake ones. For these ones, I added a Crumb Cake Tag and the sentiment stamped on Whisper White Cardstock.
The roses have been made by punching a Blushing Bride Cardstock 1 1/2″ Circle. I then used my scissors to cut in a circular motion until I got to the centre of the cardstock. I scrunched up the circle in my hand to loosen the fibres and rolled it in to shape. Tombow Liquid Glue is the best thing to hold these roses together. The leaves have also been created with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch. Once the Mossy Meadow circle was punched, I then used the same punch to cut out three leaf shapes from each circle. All roses and leaves have been adhered to my tags with the holder of everything – Tombow Liquid Glue.
The next hop along the way is the very talented Rochelle Blok. She has created the sweetest projects that you will want to see.
