Touches of Flowers and Texture — 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.

Tonight is one of our “open” hops, which means we can use any of the products in our most current box.  I was so excited to see the Touches of Texture stamp set in our box.  It was right at the top of my wish list when I first saw the new catalog.

Textured Tag Close Up

I started by running one of the new Glassine Gift Bags through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I love the size of these bags, and I love that they are made from glassine paper.  They’re perfect for packaging up a big cookie (that’s what I put in this bag) or other treat for someone special.

I made a pretty tag using a piece of the new Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  These sheets have a gold pattern on one side and silver on the other side.  They add a little touch of glam to your projects!  Over that, I layered a piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love how this sheet music pattern can be used year-round!

To make the top layer, I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the floral branch image with Basic Black ink.  I then stamped the splatter image with Mint Macaron and colored the flowers with Peekaboo Peach ink using a Blender Pen.  I stamped the image again on another piece of cardstock and cut out three of the little flowers to add just a little bit of dimension and texture.

The sentiment was stamped using the super fun Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  I LOVE this set!  An In Color Doily and a little strip of Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape were added as fun embellishments.  I attached the tag with one of the cute and super functional Gold Binder Clips, and added a piece of Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon.

While I had all of the supplies out, I made a card using the same supplies.

This set is so fun to play with!  This is the same stamp set, just some different stamps from it.

Labels and Texture — Monday Montage #71

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

One of the challenges of a new catalog is figuring out which products to ink up first.  Fun problem, huh!  Two of my favorite sets that I couldn’t wait to get are Touches of Texture and Labeler Alphabet.  So I decided to use them both on this card.

Hello Touches of TextureI started by stamping the background images with Dapper Denim ink.  The focal image was stamped with Basic Black ink and colored with a blender pen using Dapper Denim and Old Olive inks.  I added a little Soft Sky ink on that background with the blender pen too.

The sentiment was made using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  I love this set!  It’s so easy to make customized sentiments.  And you don’t have to worry about getting everything lined up exactly straight and evenly spaced because the imperfect looks adds to its charm.
