More SU Concept Artists

Thought that I would share some more projects created by the Stampin' Up! Concept Artists.   They really are a talented group and inspire me!!

Now, can you guess what their favorite tool is?  [playing the Jeopardy song here]  It is the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig!!!  During class, every time they mentioned it, they played that song "getting jiggy with it" (sorry, I don't have a clue what the title of that song is but I bet you do).   They also use a pencil, eraser and ruler as their go-to tools!  So, make sure those tools are handy when you are creating!

Here we go with some projects - you'll notice a particular theme in these projects -- it's the chevron!  Apparently, it's a hot trend right now and there is one thing that I've learned about Stampin' Up! - they are right on top of the trends!!!

The background of the scrapbook page was created using stencils.  They cut a pattern out of one of our window sheets and then sprayed ink using the new Spritzers.

This chevron pattern is made from a new stamp set in the Holiday Mini (hopefully my customers should have them in their hot little hands by now!).

The top chevron pattern, also "rick rack" is made from one of the Big Shot dies.  Can you tell how the second chevron pattern is made?  Just punch out some squares, cut them in half diagonally and place them as they have above!

This pattern was really cute and it is created from a square that was punched out, cut in half diagonally, then they cut the inside out using the punch again!

Oh gosh, this one really amazed me!  The designer series paper is from the Holiday Mini, but can be easily created with any designer series paper that has a diagonal pattern.  They cut it in strips, then reversed every other strip, lining up the stripes to create the chevron pattern!  It is much easier than it sounds, that's for sure!

Sorry for the blurriness of this pic, but it's good enough where you can see the pattern.  This is from a stamp from the Holiday Mini and they stamped the first image, then turned the stamp going in the opposite direction and stamped it again!  

As you can see, the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig really comes in handy when lining things up!   Hope you enjoy!!!

Happy Stamping,
