2013 Artisan Finalists Blog Hop – Day 9


Welcome to Day 9 of the 2013 Artisan Design Team Finalists Blog Hop!  So sad that our hop is almost over!  All of the combined talent of these girls is just AH-mazing!  I am in awe of the work submitted by the Top 20 finalists!  You should have come from the fabulous Bree Renwick’s post to get here and from here you can click on “next” and get to Dani Dziama’s amazing work!  If you missed Bree either select the “back” button to get there or go all the way around the hop to get back to her.



This is my last card entry.  I actually had a couple more cards I sent in to Stampin’ Up but I’ll share those later.

This card features the Epic Day This and That DSP and Washi Tape.  I also used the large image from Layered Labels on its side as a background image.  I love how that looks!  I inked up one of the images from From My Heart with a marker only inking the border and leaving off the sentiment.  I stamped that on some Very Vanilla and used a framelit from the Labels Collection to cut it out.  I highlighted the image with the Gold Smooch Ink…love that too!  My favorite feature on the card is the tiny balloon from Collage Curios that I gold embossed on to  Vellum Cardstock.  After I punched it out, I added Gold Lame Smooch Pearlized Ink to the edges and attached it to one of the small Soda Pop Tops.  Loved those little guys, so very sad they have retired!  This time I painted my doily with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  As soon as we got the doilies, I have added them to 8 out of 10 projects.  Once I tried painting them with the shimmer paint, I couldn’t help but do it every time!  Yummmm-O!

I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed making it!  Happy Funday Sunday!  Hopefully your Sunday included some creativity too 🙂
