Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Posted For You


Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Posted For You Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I CAN NOT BELIEVE that this is the 2020 team's FINAL hop! It's been such an amazing experience and I really am genuinely surprised how fast it flew by. I'll be leaving information on the incoming team at the end of this blog so be sure to check that out. They are an AMAZING and talented group of designers! For now, be sure you hop along with us as we feature the Posted For You Bundle. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using products from the  Posted For You Bundle. This set, I'll admit, was not one I was initially drawn to, but after playing with it, I'm convinced that it is a must have! The images are so detailed and fit perfectly with the coordinating postage stamp-shaped punch, and the font is beautiful, like elegant calligraphy. Here's a look at the set:
POSTED FOR YOU BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
I'm going to start with my favorite of the two projects that I made today. I started by using Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the first layer of my card. I used Whisper White Craft Ink to stamp the round stamp in the background and to add a little splatter to the background for a little extra texture. I also made a coordinating envelope that was stamped in Petal Pink.
Here's a close-up of the details for the first card (below). I like to create a little extra interest and texture to my projects by adding a few ink splatters. For a bold effect I use my Whisper White Ink Refill, along with my Water Painter to flick on some white splatters. You can even add a little White Emboss Powder on top for a quick way to seal the splatters to avoid smearing.
For my next card, I started with another gray base but instead used the Scripty Embossing Folder to add detail and texture to it. I colored the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron Blends. For a little elegancy I used the Forever Gold Specialty Paper. If you flip it over, it's just white so you can make it any color with your inks to customize it for any project.
I leave you with a few close-ups of the tags below:
As I said this gorgeous bundle was not initially at the top of my list but after playing with it, I just adore it! It has so many beautiful details and the possibilities are endless. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Snowflake Splendor

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Snowflake Splendor Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using products from the Snowflake Splendor Suite. The Snowflake Wishes Bundle from this suite is just packed with delicate snowflakes, flurries of sentiments, and gorgeous detailed dies. Here's a look at the set:
SNOWFLAKE WISHES BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
 My project today is a little gift box with 4 unique gift tags inside. The box itself was made using the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can make the dimensions smaller for a more compact box if you like but for my sample, I create a 5 7/8" x 4 1/2" x 1" (base) and 6" x 4 3/4" x 3/4" (lid). When you cut the paper, be sure to take into account the length of the sides of he base and lid before cutting.
Here's a close-up of the lid of the box (below). I used some Balmy Blue and Pool Party Cardstock to create the main label. I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue Ink. I also added some Blue Gems.
The tags inside use some of the same colors of cardstock, with the addition of Coastal Cabana. I also embossed one of them with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I used the coordinating dies to adorn them with dazzling snowflakes.
I leave you with a few close-ups of the tags below:
This gorgeous suite was as the top of my list from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and a great way to make fun, festive holiday projects for gifts, holiday cards, or parties. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Curvy Celebrations Part 2

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the second Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we will be showcasing projects from a promotion that feature two early-release products from the January—June 2021 Mini Catalogue, available from November 3rd-January 4th! You are going to love these fun products because this promotion offers customers an opportunity to purchase early, gives them a first glance at the look and feel of the new mini catalogue, and exclusive products perfect for Christmas crafting, so make sure you grab them while you can because they are only available for a limited time! You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!


Here's a look at the products:
For the previous hop I had the pleasure of using the Quite Curvy Stamp Set (154430) and the coordinating Curvy Dies (154319). By the way, if you buy the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (Item 158396) you get a 10% discount on each item included in the bundle! It's a great deal! They are just fab for crafters of every level. You can easily use the images to stamp a simple background and greeting for a simple look or take it to the next level and add layers of beautiful details with the fun curvy dies. Here is a look at the card I created in the previous hop using this bundle:
For my card today, I got to combine the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set (155364), the Curvy Dies (154319), and the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) (153489). You can save money and buy the whole Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (158396)! 

The design of this card was created with versatility in mind. I wanted it to be a sample that could easily be altered for a more simple version or, with a few more details/embellishments. more complex. I kept the color scheme monochromatic with a few touches of neutrals. I used some of the DSP for both my first panel layer and details on my card like the star, created with the Stitched Star Dies. I used the Memento Black Ink to stamp my curvy star border. Then I used my Mint Macaron Blends and my Soft Sea Foam Blends. I stamped a few sprigs with Just Jade Ink and die cut a few sprigs in Shaded Spruce Cardstock.
Here's a close up:
It was so much fun playing with these brand new products! This is a limited time early release for these amazing Curvy Celebrations products. Customers can purchase Curvy Celebrations products starting 3 November 2020, so be sure to grab them soon so that you can start creating some samples to share with them!

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - In the Pines

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the In the Pines Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using products from the In the Pines Bundle. I just love a stamp set with beautiful pine trees, or any trees in it for that matter. The natural images and theme offer possibilities that stretch beyond the holidays. The dies that compliment this set are so delicately detailed and look lovely in just about any color combo. Here's a look at the set:
IN THE PINES BUNDLE
 My first card has some really great texture added to the background. I used the Snow Time Dies to create some embossed snowflake images for a snow-filled sky look, onto Mint Macaron Cardstock. The trees were stamped in Mint Macaron Ink, full strength and then filled in with Mint in 2nd generation (stamped off first). I added a few die cut trees in Vellum for a little interest.
My next card was designed with to create a soft Northern lights watercolor effect using Just Jade and Soft Seafoam Inks and my Water Painter. I kept this one somewhat simple with white pines and a few small Snowflake Sequins to finish it off.
Here's a close-up:
My final project is a festive treat bag. To add a little boost of color, I incorporated a piece of the 'Tis the Season Designer Series Paper for the main part of my Mosaic Gusseted Bag's tag. I used similar elements used in the previous two projects to adorn my tag. The Flowers For Every Season Gems were the perfect final touch.
This gorgeous bundle was one of my number one bundles from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and a great way to make fun, festive holiday projects for gifts, holiday cards, or parties. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Corporate Blog Post - Nontraditional Christmas Scrapbook Page

Hello! My name is Lauren Alarid and I am from California, United States. I will be sharing a nontraditional Christmas Scrapbook Page with you, using the Tag Buffet Stamp Set (#153612) from the August–December 2020 Mini Catalog’s and Beautiful Boughs (#150661) from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

It’s great to mix in unexpected colors into your holiday projects. For this page I used Petal Pink (#147108), 2nd generation (stamp off once, then stamp onto your project) Flirty Flamingo (#147052), and Mint Macaron Inks (#147106), along with some Crumb Cake Cardstock (#120953) and some soft gray tones for my background using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) (#152483). (Picture above)

You can use the use a Stamping Sponge (#141337) to ink some Whisper White Ink (#147277) onto the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder (#152702) and press it into the Peony DSP to create some extra texture and interest on your projects.

The Flowers for Every Season Gems (#153645) can be easily customized to match your projects by using your Stampin’ Blends to add layers of color. This project uses the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (#154884)

Scrapbook pages can easily be translated to card projects as well. This card uses all the same products as the scrapbook page. I used the Flamingo blends and the Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (#154904) to color my stockings.

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Curvy Celebrations

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we will be showcasing projects from a promotion that feature two early-release products from the January—June 2021 Mini Catalogue, available to demonstartors from October 1st-November 2nd, plus two exclusive products available for a limited time only!

You can easily use the images to stamp a simple background and greeting for a simple look or take it to the next level and add layers of beautiful details with the fun curvy dies. Here is a look at my card I will be showcasing in my projects today:
I used a few of the floral imagery as my focal point and colored them with Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Mint Macaron Blends. I added some sprogs of greenery from the coordinating die set cut from both Mint Macaron and Just Jade Cardstock.The floral stamped image was more curved in design, but the thing I love about the photopolymer stamps is that you can manipulate them to change their shape a bit, so I straightened it out a bit for a less curved effect. Keep in mind that this image will no longer line up with the coordinating die as it has a new shape.
It was so much fun playing with these brand new products!  This is a limited time early release and as a demonstrator, you get early access to these amazing Curvy Celebrations products. During preorder, products are limited to one of each stamp set and dies (whether purchased separately or as part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle) and three of the Designer Series Paper. Customers can purchase Curvy Celebrations products starting 3 November 2020, so be sure to grab them soon so that you can start creating some samples to share with them!
