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:
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.
