Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop - Sparkle and MORE Shine

Welcome 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 is an "open to create" week but to stay within the parameters of goodies from our Artisan box. Plan to see a lot of different design styles with these selective products as you move thru the blog hop! I decided to use the Sparkle and Shine Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog along with the truly awesome Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper. The more I use this DSP, the more I love it! Be sure to pick up this gem before the Occasions Catalog ends!
I created two cards very similar in layout but using different paper patterns of the Shine On DSP and greetings from the Sparkle and Shine Stamp Set. I stamped the pattern images (the v's and raindrops) on a piece of cardstock and then punched out with my 2 1/2" Circle Punch for one of the layers. I am loving the Cucumber Crush together with the Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay as well as the pop of Basic Black and Whisper White. Then make sure to make some custom envelopes for these 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" cards with the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper. 
Last is a cute gift package made with the Gift Bag Punch Board and the Shine On DSP too! I am loving that Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon so much, I hope it stays in the new Annual Catalog coming in June! 
Thanks for stopping by here and if you leave a comment then thanks for truly making my day!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
