Stampin' Up! Aritsan Blog Hop - Carry Over Event

Hello everyone and welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. This month we have a little something different for you. Each of us have chosen a Stampin’ Up! stamp set or tool that is being carried over to the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalogue and we have designed a project/projects that could be demonstrated in an event or class setting.
I chose to design a class that showcases the Darling Label Punch Box.

This gorgeous Night of Navy and Gold tin comes filled with a 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, the Darling Label punch, a clear stamp block and two Classic Stampin’ Spots in Night of Navy and Grapefruit Grove. I've chose to focus on using the stamp set and punch to create these projects a half day class setting.

When creating this box and set of cards I chose to use Whisper White Note Cards as a card base and have used a colour combo of Night of Navy, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Smoky Slate with touches of Gold. I also used some other carry over products, including the Flourish Thinlits and the Beauty Abounds stamp set, however if you wanted to recreate these products in a class with less products, each of the designs can easily be stepped down.

The first card I created for this set was inspired by the imagery on the Darling Label Punch Box tin. One of the stamps in the set has the same flower image as the tin and I just couldn’t resist heat embossing it in Gold on Night of Navy cardstock.

I kept this next card simple by stamping a few bokeh spots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Smoky Slate on some Smoky Slate cardstock before adding texture with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I finished it off with a simple sentiment banner, a flower and some leaves and a little Gold Metallic Thread

One of the things I love about using Note card sized card bases is that they are the perfect size for smaller images like this “Thinking of You” sentiment. In the stepped up version I’ve used the Stamparatus and some masking to stamp the image in two different colours and added a second leaf image underneath the sentiment.

For the fourth card in the set I couldn’t decide whether to stick with a clean white or a sponged Blackberry Bliss background so I did both. I’m still not sure which one is my favourite. Which do you prefer?

Finally, I created a matchbox style box to hold the four cards, however the design could easily work as a card front.

Well that’s all from me today. I hope you have been inspired by my projects and the projects created my fellow Artisans. If you want to use my projects in a class or just want to re-create your own set of contact me (here) to get a copy of the tutorials.

Next up in the hop is the fabulous Angela Meiritz-Reid, I'm sure you are going to love what she has created.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy stamping
