Shine On Birthday Set- Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Shine On Birthday Set 2

Hello, friends, and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. I’m so glad you’re here!

This is our “open” week where we were free to chose anything from our Artisan box. While I was going through my goodies, (for the 100th giddy time) my eye was especially drawn to the beautiful Cucumber Crush leaf pattern from the Shine On Designer Series Paper pack.

I started out with a birthday card, mixing the bright leaf background with the gorgeous new Rose Garden Thinlits Die in Watermelon Wonder and one of my favorites ever, Typeset Designer Series Paper.

Another delight from our Artisan box was the new Watermelon Wonder 1″ Stitched Satin Ribbon- oh, this stuff is dreamy! As I played with ideas, I decided to “rough it up” with my trusty fringe scissors to give it a vintage feel.

For the Typeset paper, I wanted it to look like gathered ribbon, so I gently broke down the fibers by pulling on it with my bone folder and then glued the loops in place with my low temp hot glue gun. I didn’t want it perfect, so I made the loops uneven on purpose.

After I finished the card, I created a matching gift bag. The awesome thing? These little Petite Café Gift Bags are lined and food safe, making them perfect for giving a tasty treat to someone special.

  1. Michelle…I seriously can’t say enough about how awesome this project is! I truly love everything about it…and the way you’ve used pleated the ribbon and “pleated” the paper. And the colors you’ve used…WOW!
