Stampin' UP! Artisan Blog Hop - Paisleys and Posies Birthday

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! 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 Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set, Basket of Wishes, or All Year Long PL Card Collection. I choose to challenge myself to create with the Paisleys and Posies Stamp set but use it in a non-fall or non-autumn way as sold in the Holiday Catalog. My intentions were to show the versatility of the stamp set past the holidays.
 I stamped in Pool Party Classic Ink on Thick White Cardstock with the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set in a random pattern. I even stamped across the back of the card as shown in a cascading effect. It adds a nice finished look on the back. 
To create the ombre' look on the Stylized Birthday Stamp, add Delightful Dijon ink with a sponge dauber on top word, then Tangerine Tango ink with sponge dauber in the middle section and finally Cajun Craze ink on the bottom word. Huff with your breath to add moisture and stamp. I used the Layered Circles Framelits Dies to cut out the image and add a Cajun Craze scalloped circle behind it. 
I finished the card off with the 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack (Delightful Dijon) and pieces of Tangerine Tango cardstock cut with the Paisley Framelits Dies.
I added a piece of the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper to the flap of a white envelope. To complete, add some stamp images in Pool Party on there too.

Thanks for stopping by here and if you leave a comment then thanks for truly making my day! Just a special thank to YOU for following our Stampin' UP! Artisan Blog Hop this year!
