Sure Do Love You - Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Sure Do Love You Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so grab your favorite snack and beverage and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from Kim McGillis' Blog; her creativity is just breathtaking isn't it?! 

Today, I will be showcasing the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set and Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Painted with Love Suite of products. These gorgeous products are quite perfect for a love-themed scrapbook layout as you will see in my project below.

I wanted to create a background that mimicked one of the designs of the coordinating DSP. To achieve this look, I took a brush and painted on a few brushstrokes of white, using my Whisper White Ink and then a few strokes with my Berry Burst Ink Pad onto a piece of 12"x 12" Crumb Cake Cardstock. I set this aside to dry. I also wanted a few gold brushstrokes so after the painted  portion had dried I took the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and added some of the gold brushstroke stickers to my background. 

Next, I cut a 4"x 6" piece of the Painted with Love DSP and mounted it onto a 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" piece of Berry Burst Cardstock. I added a photo from my wedding pictures and added some Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim behind my photo before adding it to my background. I also took a few of the gold hearts from the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and added them to my layout. I added a few floral accents using the dies from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies

To finish off my layout I added a sprinkle of the Gold Glitter Flakes. You can see how they add just the right finishing touch. 

Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share. I’ve listed them, along with all products used below or you can just click the link below to hop to the very talented and inspiring Linda Van Wely-Zwolle
