Thankful for Paisleys — Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  There are 20 of us from around the globe who will be sharing our projects with you twice each month.  All you need to do to follow along is click on the link at the bottom of each post.

For this post we were challenged to use one of three different product suites, and I decided to use the Petals & Paisleys suite.  I am a sucker for all things Fall, so I decided to use one of my favorite Fall-themed color combinations — Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, and Soft Suede.


I started by making a card with this sentiment that I just love.  These three words sum up how I feel about this whole experience as an Artisan and getting to work with this team.  Truly Blessed and Grateful!

grateful-for-paisleys-cardThe Paisleys & Posies stamp set and coordinating dies, the Paisley Framelits Dies, can be purchased as a bundle, allowing you to save ten percent.  Love that!  I used them both for this card, as well as the Petals & Paisleys Specialty dsp.

grateful-for-paisleys-card-close-upI created a little gift sack as well using the Glassine Gift Bags.  It will be perfect to hold a pumpkin-chocolate chip bar when we make those a little later in the season.

grateful-for-paisleys-bagThe paisley images in this stamp set remind me of the popular adult coloring books.  I colored a bunch of these images with my Stampin’ Write Markers, and had so much fun doing it.  I love how these markers have a fine tip on one end and a brush tip on the other — makes it so easy to color big and small areas.
