Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Coordination Campaign

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the 2nd installment of the Coordination Campaign Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be sharing even MORE projects using some stunning new products that are designed to pair perfectly with the brand new Mini and Sale-A-Bration CatalogsFor a limited time, starting today (until supplies last), you can get your hands on these exclusive products. These complimentary products take all of the guesswork out of crafting, and you can say goodbye to fussy cutting because these products make cutting out those detailed images a breeze! Be sure to grab yours now before they're gone! Each of us was given a different product to work with so be sure to hop all the way through so that you don't miss ANY of the amazing inspiration! You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. I just LOVE what she has created
Coordination Product Release (pre-orders are limited to one per demonstrator):
For the first hop I was lucky enough to get to work with the STUNNING Nature's Thoughts Dies (153586). You can click here to see more details about these projects. Here were my projects from that hop, using the Nature's Thoughts Dies:
For my projects for today, I got to play with the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set and the coordinating Birthday Dies (153590).
I have made a gift tag and matching card. When I design my cards and projects I like to have a few generic options on hand so that I can easily grab one for last minute occasions when necessary. So my idea was to create a card that could that could be used for either birthdays or weddings, so I chose the sentiment "celebrate". I love the gorgeous flowers in the stamp set and I love that the coordinating dies includes a die designed to cut the flowers out separately-genius!
I stamped my cake twice (once for my main cake image and then once more so that I could cut the flowers separately) in Versamark Ink and then embossed them in gold for a delicate, elegant look. Then, I used the leafy dies to die cut a bunch of leaves from Whisper White, Balmy Blue, and Coastal Cabana Cardstock. My plan was to use these leaves to create dimensional flowers for my cake.
As mentioned previously, one of the great things about all of these coordinating products is that the dies eliminate the need for fussy cutting, and therefore, freeing up more time to create projects. With this die set, I was able to easily die cut multiple leaves for my flowers.
To create my dimensional flowers, I first put down a Mini Glue Dot. Then I cut the leaves from the stems and began layering them together. I staggered the layers so that each leaf layer would sit in between the spaces of the previous layer. You will likely need to add more glue dots between layers as you go.Once you have the desired amount of layering, you can finish the flowers off with a Pearl center or rhinestone if you wish. The matching card was created in much the same manner. Here's a look at the card version of my project:
These coordinating products are so versatile and fun, and have everything you need to let you celebrate your creativity! I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs (full list of supplies below). Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages.
