Picture Perfect - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop


 Welcome BACK to the 2015-2016 Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
I am so blessed that I get to create and inspire with these amazing Stampin' UP products and share with you all here for another wonderful year! Remember that every other Thursday, all 20 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. Please keep hoppin' thru them all....you do not want to miss anyone of these amazing ladies!

This week we are showcasing our Artisan projects for the Stampin' UP Facebook Page this month. For this project, the team was to focus on the Love Blossoms DSP Stack #140548, either the First Sight Stamp Set #140685 or Picture Perfect Stamp Set #140520 with a few extra accessories from the Love Blossoms Suite. Plan to see a lot of different design styles with these selective products as you move thru the blog hop! 
I choose to work with the Picture Perfect Stamp Set which is a 18 photopolymer stamp set perfect for multi-step layering of the same image. To be honest, using the set was a little trial and error to begin with but once I got use to the placement, I found myself liking the set more and more. Tip start from the catalog: First turn them in the same direction, then stamp in numerical order (which is key tip).  
You can play around with several color combinations for all of the images. My roses were a blend of the Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette while the starfish was So Saffron and Delightful Dijon. I also wanted to share the softer patterns of the Love Blossoms DSP Stack and they became my background layer that you can stamp right of them. The greetings in this stamp set are excellant for all occassions too! 

Thanks for stopping by here and if you leave a comment

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Cindy, you have such an eye for texture and color. I love the subtle details you incorporate to make each project a work of art.

Cindy, you always have the most unique and unexpected ideas that work so beautifully. The ribbons you've chosen here are such a perfect example of that - they bring such a pop of colour and change the whole look of the card from romantic to bright and cheery. Just awesome!

Everything you touch turns to creative gold my friend. These cards are crazy beautiful, and so are you!

Hello Cindy, really unique and extraordinary cards, I love them :)

I really love the starfish (and I'd been resisting getting that set...things might be changing!) and it looks so beautiful perching on the ribbon. I like the way that the ribbon is folded, really effective.
