Welcome to our next edition of the May Artisan Wednesday Wow hop. Boy do we have some fun for you this month!! Last week the whole team showcased the new Project Life® by Stampin’ Up® line of products. This week, we are showing off even more fun from the new catalog. If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
I know Mother’s Day has already passed but I could not resist showing you this card. The stamp sets are Peaceful Petals from the Occasions Catalog and Papillon Potpourri that continues into the new catalog. They are perfect together!! I stamped the flowers with the new Memento Black Ink and then stamped the leaves with a mask to protect the flowers. Those vibrant colors are courtesy of the new Blendabilities Alcohol Markers and wow are they fun! The depth of color is so extraordinary!! I used the Cherry Cobbler set on the flowers, Old Olive on the leaves and then a combination of Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana on the butterfly. And about those gems. They are not new to the catalog. They are the ever so fabulous staple Basic Rhinestones, except colored with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities (medium color). Makes all the difference, doesn’t it?! Oh, and you can color the Vintage Faceted Buttons too (I colored the back side only with the same marker as the rhinestones). The ink stays put and you can coordinate with your image. Swoon!! I’m officially in love! I used the Hardwood stamp to create the background. Early Espresso stamped on Crumb Cake Card Stock to start. Then I cut the image apart and sponged each piece. They are attached back to a Crumb Cake base and they look almost real….even next to my real wood background. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and you could sub out almost any little sentiment in its place. This card was for my mom and for once she actually saw it before it went on my blog. Hope your day was great mom!!
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
