Sharing Sweet Thoughts: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hi-de-ho stampers! Glad to see you back for another Artisan blog hop!
 We are a group of 20 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe, handpicked by Stampin' Up! to bring you inspiration and projects with the latest and greatest supplies.

This time we are featuring the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set, which is this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set. For every one of these stamp sets that is sold, Stampin' Up! makes a $3 donation to Ronald McDonald House! To learn more about this wonderful organization, click here.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Sylwia Schreck's blog in Germany. Stunning work, every single time!

Sharing Sweet Thoughts from Stampin' Up! made some sweet gift card holders and watercolored butterflies! Those strawberries sure look delicious in Berry Burst too. Created by Tanya Boser for the Artisan Design Team blog hop.
I have three projects to share with you this time, and I must have been channeling Louise Sharpe, cuz pink plays a big roll in them 😂

How about some butterfly clouds! The butterflies were white heat embossed on watercolor paper taped to a board. Then I applied a wash of Powder Pink, Marina Mist, and Sweet Sugarplum. And added more layers of Sweet Sugarplum to highlight the butterflies. Embellished with Pretty Label punch, Eastern Medallion/Layering Circle die cut, and Burlap ribbon, sentiment Copper heat embossed on Vellum.

You can never have enough gift card holders, and here are two more! The doilies are so delicate and fun, don't you think?

Remember my trick to hold a gift card with the Coffee Cafe cup? Well, it works with the mason jars too! For the jar full of strawberries, I just stamped them on a scrap of watercolor paper, cut them out, then used an Aqua-painter to spread the color around.

This one I got a little fancy with. The hearts were stamped and colored on a scrap of watercolor paper, then the sentiment was Copper heat embossed on vellum. 

Here is the video I made of the gift card holder, same process is used for these.

That is all I have for you this time, and if you started with Allison, then I am the last stop. I hope you found lots of inspiration on the hop. And if you started somewhere in the middle, keep going! There is so much more to see! (Supplies used in theses projects are listed below.)

Spritzed Medallions

 Hello friends! I am actually posting by myself today, no blog hops. Weird, right?! I do so many hops because sometimes I need a deadline to motivate me. Or an assignment to send me in a direction, any direction!  😆
This time, I was self-directed. BUT, I have been hanging onto this post for months! Because the Pattern Party masks were on back-order. They really are that awesome. Of course, it could be partly due to the Embossing Paste, which is awesome too. But I did not use the paste on these projects 😁

So, the one on the right was made with Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, and Melon Mambo. And the one on the left is Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. Both are on watercolor paper, matted on Crumb Cake, and adhered to Thick Very Vanilla. I love that we have the Thick Vanilla and White now! Those are my go-to card stocks for card bases.

Here is a video of how I made these cards!

A little close up. Maybe you can see the shimmer from the Pearlized water here. 

I still LOVE this color combo. I used it on the Sponge and Spritz video with the Colorful Seasons blog hop recently. I had forgotten that I used it on this card too. 

This is just a quick Saturday morning post, so that is all I have for you, I hope you have a fabulous day!
