Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Vintage Flowers

Welcome to this week ADT blog hop.
We have the pleasure of showcasing the Oh So Succulent bundle!

Take a look at my creation...

I actually wanted to see if I could get a bit of a vintage feel from this suite & I think it worked by adding age to the flowers & DSP with Soft Suede ink.

The sentiment from this set "Because of you I am me" reminded me so much of my grandmother that I created this card for her on the 2 year anniversary of her passing. I know I will never be able to deliver this card to her but it helped me get through a very difficult day. 

Ok well lets go see what fun things Mindy has for us!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Its The Bee's Knees!

Welcome to our Artisan Design Team blog hop!
This week we are featuring the Dragonfly Dreams & the Basket Bunch bundles... 

I got Basket Bunch. Lol!
No obviously I got Dragonfly Dreams. I wanted to highlight the cute little bee so I went with its signature colors of black & yellow. The Pop of Pink & the Inside the Lines DSP played so nicely together. I have to say my favorite things about this stamp set are the beautiful sentiments! 
Did you know that you could perform surgery on your stamps? Yep its true, I cut my stamps apart sometimes...gasp. Well it takes a steady hand, keen sight, & a nice sharp blade or scissors but it can be done!
I love how photopolymer gives me the ability to fit sentiments exactly how I want them- I actually lay the stamps out on my project & them press my clear block over them so they stay arranged just right when it's time to stamp!
Ok lets go hop on over to see what Mindy has created for us!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Sweet Succulents

Welcome to this weeks Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
This week is a fun one since we all have a chance to create projects with anything that we received in our latest box of goodies!
Well I have to admit that I was both excited & a little over whelmed with all the choices, Lol.
Take a look at what I decided to go with...
Yep the amazing Succulent dies! I actually am not really a fan of these type of plants but make them out of paper & I seem to have changed my tune because now I want to create a whole garden full of them!
Actually I had my crafty 11 year old die cut & sponge this beauty for me. I paired it with the beautiful Window Box Thinlits. Decide to give it even more pop by hot gluing on some old Spanish moss I had lying around-this is why I don't throw anything away. #hoarder
But you just never know when your gonna need something, right? Bwhahaha!
Ok lets go visit Mindy!
