Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team is starting to bring you projects from our December box this week! We are in full holiday mode and having so much fun! If you have come over from 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’m sure you have seen by now that I really love the Season of Style suite of products! The colors are so fantastic! Well, I pulled out yet another of the coordinating items this week – the Season of Style This and That Journal. And I did what I never thought I would. I tore pages out. Yep…right out of the journal. The grid piece on the bag is the page I tore out.
I started by spritzing the page with Cherry Cobbler ink, then stamped on some stars from Simply Stars using Versamark Ink. I added Heat & Stick Powder and then the amazing Gold Stampin’ Glitter. Once the base layer was done I simply started adding stuff on. I used the Cherry Cobbler print from Season of Style DSP to create the star. The chevron arrow is a sticker from the Season of Style This and That Stickers. So is the Crumb Cake layer where part of the sentiment is stamped. The tag comes from the Stamp a Tag Kit and I attached a layer of White Vellum underneath to add a little more dimension. Season of Style Washi Tape combined with the new (Occasions Catalog – available Jan 3rd) Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape hold the layers together. I added some more Versamark and Heat & Stick Powder to the edge of the little clothespin (from Tag a Bag Accessories) and put on a little more Gold Glitter. It is all attached to a Tag a Bag Gift Bag.
I am using the bag as an envelope for this fun card (it will be sealed on the back with more Washi Tape). Again, I went a little nuts with the stickers from the This and That Stickers set. The words are from the coordinating Rotary Stamp. Again, the lined paper is a page taken from the journal and I love how it works here. A little arrow clip from Hung Up Cute Clips seemed like the perfect addition.
Now I know this combines a lot of products lines so it might not be for the beginning stamper. But I wanted to show you how beautifully so many of the Stampin’ Up products work together to create this trendy, eclectic style. Don’t be afraid to use projects in a way not originally intended. It is fun and a great way to use up stuff that is sitting on your craft table.
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. Every week she has another project I want to CASE! She is so fabulous! Make sure hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
