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!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Hot Air Balloons

Welcome!
This week we are taking you up up & away with the new Lift Me Up product bundle!
Take a look at my card...


I always adore all those watercolor wash cards so I decided to go that route by using a piece of Shimmer white cardstock & 3 ink pads. Then I played with the idea of adding some balloons directly on top of the water coloring. It looked cute but a bit flat so the Big Shot & framelits came to the rescue & I think it came out pretty good!

~Alrighty well lets hop on over to see what Mindy has created for us~
