artisan design team – april 2023 – marigold moments…

05.01.2023…..Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share my April 2023 projects, as a member of the Stampin’ Up! 2023 Artisan Design Team. I was assigned the gorgeous, Marigold Moments Bundle, from the current Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog…..which expires today! This wonderful bundle is jam-packed with wonderful phrases, patterns, elements, and tons of inspiration! It’s absolutely perfect for card-making, memory keeping,and so much more! I hope this projects inspire you to create some wonderful creations of your own, using these amazing products!

To view these projects, on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page, you can go to:

To create the base for each of the card, I used Pool Party Cardstock, along with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Pool Party Cardstock base. For the gift tag, I used one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies, along with Pool Party Cardstock, and embossed it with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

I also used the Vellum 12″ x 12″ Layering Designs (backed with Basic White Thick Cardstock), for an unexpected twist.

To create the colorful “watercolor look” background, I used Blending Brushes to add Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Tahitian Tide to some Basic White Thick Cardstock. I then used a Water Painter to “flick” water droplets on the cardstock, and dried it with a Heat Tool. To add some extra texture, I also tore the edges of the cardstock.

For each of the marigolds, I used Basic White Thick Cardstock, along with the marigold die from the Marigold Moments Bundle.

I also used Distressed Gold Shimmer Paper, along with the border die from the Marigold Moments Bundle, to add a subtle bit of shimmer to my projects.

The sentiments (from the Marigold Moments Bundle) were heat-embossed on Coastal Cabana Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I also cut them out with dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

To create the bows, I used Linen Thread and Tahitian Tide Baker’s Twine (with a few of the threads pulled out.) For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Opal Rounds and Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Wishing you creativity always,
