Thank You Blooms - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are half way thru our January 2015 box from Stampin' UP. This box was full of brand NEW products from the Stampin' UP Occasions Catalog! I feel it is AMAZING Occasions Catalog as well as the Sale-a-bration this year is the BEST EVER! You are going to want it ALL! We have 5 Thursdays this month so each week you will see all NEW items with a variety of inspiring creations from the Artisan Design Team! 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 3rd week...
First, I must say that I love each and every pattern in this BEAUTIFUL Designer Series Paper called Painted Blooms. I especially was drawn to this tulip pattern the most. I also went to the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies to create a gift card holder. I thought that a little $10.00 gift card would make a perfect thank you treat for someone special. My favorite part of this project was the stamped flowers! I did an oldie but a goodie technique called "rock and roll". I stamped first in Daffodil Delight ink then rock-n-rolled the edges of the stamp in Rose Red ink. I did add a new step - I spritzed it with water just a bit to soften the colors. It was so fun to play with this classic technique!  I also forgot how much I love the color Wild Wasabi! Great green color for spring! Ah, spring....get here soon!
I hope this inspires you will get out that designer series paper you love, buy that Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and make a little gift to say thank you to someone special in your life!
Thanks for stopping by!
