Love Blossoms — 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 blog hop, we were asked to focus our projects on the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I decided to make a little treat bag and coordinating card using this paper and the Picture Perfect stamp set.

Love Blossoms Focus -- GroupI used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die to cut out the bag.  I love how the paper is double sided, so you can see little peeks of the other pattern on the inside of the bag.

I cut out some banners and layered those together.  Then I stamped the flowers and cut them out by hand layering them on the banners.  These flowers are three-step stamping and were created using Blushing Bride and Rose Red inks for the flowers and Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.

I also used the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit for some of the fun accessories on this bag.  See the little string of pearls, the sequins and bows — all from the kit.  I also added some gold spatters using the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I wanted to make a card to go with this little gift.  Because there are so many coordinating papers in this designer series paper stack, it was easy to make a card that coordinates without exactly matching.

Love Blossoms CardI started by adhering the dsp to the card base and then layering a piece of vellum card stock on stop of it.  The flowers were made the same way as those on the gift bag.  I just added some Gold Metallic Thread under the flowers on the card.
