Spring Sparkle for the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Artisan Blog Hop March 30th 2

Hello friends, and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. Just before me on your hop around the world was Marisa Gunn and next will be Rachel Grandin-Torchet. Be sure to hop through all 20 blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

Spring is in full swing here in the Pacific Northwest, and everywhere you look the world sparkles with fresh new life, so for my “open” project this week I selected the Circle of Spring stamp set and the gold glimmer paper from my artisan box.

The wreath is embossed in white on watercolor paper and then I used my aqua painter and ink refill to watercolor the background.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the vellum, which does not show up in the photos.  Here is my (first ever) video, so you could see just how sparkly the card is in real life:


Thanks for joining us today. Sharing ideas with you is so much fun. I hope you will leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Now it’s time to hop on over and see what Rachel has been up to. I’m always inspired by her beautiful creations!
