Artisan Post #4 - Trusty Tools

Need an idea for a masculine card? Stampin' Up! has the perfect paper for you! 

I was given the opportunity as an #ArtisanDesignTeam member to put this tool themed paper and the matching Trusty Tools Bundle to use to create two projects for SU!. During Sale-A-Bration the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper is free when you shop (4 January–29 February). You can redeem free products with purchase, in fact, he more you spend, the more you earn! How fun!

Here is a closer look at each card. The first focuses on the die cuts and what you can build. The second is a mash up of stamping, die cutting, and die cutting DSP.

Enduring Beauty Masks

Have you seen the Enduring Beauty Bundle? It's awesome and the bundle includes a stamp set, coordinating dies, and a set of five masks. In the photo above you can see the stamps and masks in action in the top right and the bottom right gives you a look at just the masks.

For this card my colors include Boho Blue, Garden Green, and Basic Black. I kept it all clean and simple to allow the florals to shine.

Next up in our hop today is the adorable Julie Warnick.

Artisan Post #3 - Nature's Sweetness Suite Collection

This month my assignment for 2024 Artisan Design Team was to create two projects using the Nature's Sweetness Suite Collection! This Collection is jam packed with two bundles, DSP, cork rounds, and faux leather trim--it's GORGEOUS! There are five of us in our group and we each have our own style which means there aRE tons and tons of possibilities with these products. I created two cards that are both 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and I also made a bonus 3" x 3" notecard.

A Paper Flower Bouquet for Monday Montage

It'a Monday Montage Hop time! I thought I would share a paper flower bouquet timed just right for Valentines Day. 

I made these flowers with the Paper Florist Dies, floral wire, floral tape, and tiny amounts of hot glue. I wrapped the bouquet stems with Vellum and tied it with a Calypso Coral Braided Trim bow to give it a finished presentation.

Here's a closer look at the flowers. They totally look awesome and bring a smile to my face.

Creation Station is Sale-a-brating Friendship

There are two fabulous products from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure for making friendship cards--the Sunny Days Designer Series Paper and the Heartfelt Hellos Stamp Set. Both are happy and cheerful products you can get free with a purchase during Sale-a-Bration! 

I kept things simple for this first card by layering two piece of the Sunny Days DSP on a Pool Party card base. I stamped the greeting from Heartfelt Hellos with Shaded Spruce and Coastal Cabana Ink Pads. The tiny rainbow and clouds were die cut with the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder. I think it's a perfect match with the DSP.

For my second I played with layering circles and squares for a fancier background. I used Poppy Parade and Real Red Cardstocks along with a floral and strawberry print from the Sunny Days DSP pack. Accenting the greeting I used the Paper Florist Dies to cut some Shaded Spruce and Garden Green leaves.
