What Coordinates with the Artisan Embellishment Kit?

A lot of things!  Yesterday's class featured three products - Artisan Embellishment Kit, Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper and White Jute Ribbon.  While I had only planned to do four projects, I just had to add one more - and actually I wanted to keep creating because I was having too much fun.  I wanted to share the projects we made with you.







I really can't decide which one is my favorite.  Do you have a favorite?  

Below are some of the items used in making these projects:

Looking through the Windows

Have you ever looked at a window sheet and thought - now what can I do with that?   They really are pretty darned versatile - I was even surprised as I prepared for a class two weeks ago.  Thought I would share one of the projects we made  - its bright and springy and for those of you who are tired of the winter - this card just might give you hope that Spring is coming!



 
Cute, huh!!!   Notice the embossed window sheet?  What we did was mount the strip of designer series paper onto the Pistachio Pudding cardstock.  Then we placed the window sheet on top, put them all into the embossing folder and ran them through the Big Shot!  So cool!!

Here is a list of the products used on this card:

Smile!!

New stamp set - Petal Potpourri - arrives from UPS (I love them).  What to do?  Go to the 2015 Occasions Stampin' Up! catalog and look for samples.  Here is what I found:


I really loved the look of the Smile card in the lower right corner so I decided to make it.  Did I copy it exactly?  Nope!  In the sample, the Smile image was stitched and there was some embossing on the flower petals.  I wanted something that was a little quicker to make so here is what I created:




Totally thrilled with the end result!  Don't overlook the samples in the catalogs - you can copy them exactly or use them as inspiration.  They are there for you .. and me!!
