Choose Happiness - Stampin UP Artisan Blog Hop


Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are working on to our first box from Stampin' UP with products from the Annual catalog. Every Thursday of each week for one full year, all 16 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my project this week.... 
 This stamp set was totally made for the shabby chic look! I am not quite the shabby chic or vintage stamper like some of my fellow Artisan team members but I was up for the challenge with this set. This is one card that anyone could make and do that shabby chic/vintage look!

Couple of things that I did on this card:
I used Naturals White Cardstock for my card base. Love this cardstock for a crisp white yet vintage look!
I stamped the flower in Calypso Coral and then used a Blender Pen to color it in more with the same ink color.
I used the Crushed Curry base tag and Coastal Cabana mini binder clip from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit.
I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set with Crushed Curry ink to get the splatter on the card. This is a must have stamp set!
I also made a custom envelope with the Envelope Punch Board and the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Coastal Cabana strip comes from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit. It is self-adhesive and wraps around the whole envelope. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspire you today to give this shabby chic a try!
