Its Artisan Wednesday Wow time! The Stampin’ Up Artisan Design Team is back with more creative inspiration. I’m finding that I just can’t wait to see what the team has made each week (we don’t share until the hop goes up)!! I hope you are enjoying the projects from the new team. For those of you coming over from Jeanna, I’m sure you agree that her work is fantastic.
For my last August project for you (really, already??!!) I chose to focus on the Modern Medley DSP. I love the pop you get from the Basic Black and Very Vanilla, and all the designs in this paper are so wonderful! I paired it with the Gingham Garden Washi Tape. Aren’t these patterns great together?! I ran a strip of the tape down some Very Vanilla card stock and cut the polka dot panel to match the remaining measurements. Then I took some of the Creped Filter Paper and cut these flowers using my Big Shot and the Fun Flowers Bigz Die. After brayering on Daffodil Delight ink, I scrunched them up a bit and sewed on a little black button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons using black thread. I wrapped a bit more of the thread around the polka dot panel to add a little detail. Now for the sentiment. I put tape on a Very Vanilla strip the same width as this pattern, then cut the flag end. I stamped with Basic Black Ink using my Stampin’ Write Marker to capture only this sentiment from Label Love. When you stamp like this on the Washi Tape, it does not dry the same as on paper so you can emboss it. That’s what I did with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool. The whole polka dot layer is popped up on Dimensionals.
I hope you like my Polka Dots and Plaid card today. Now you get to go see what Mercedes made this week. You know it will be great!
