2012 Artisan Award Blog Hop - Project 4

Smiley from millan.netI think I am enjoying this Blog Hop just about as much as anybody!! I have really loved seeing the projects of my fellow Artisans. When I read how they went through the creative process to come up with their brilliant creations I am even MORE amazed!! You should just have come to this blog from the blog of my friend, Sarah Sagert. I am loving EVERYthing she has been posting.

It is kind of hard to tell from the picture, but the focal image on this card (the pear) is recessed down into the card. AND it has my new favorite old thing, Crystal Effects. I am having so much fun adding it to things. In fact, I think it was THIS card that got me all jazzed about it again. And I haven't been doing a lot of coloring lately, so I figured it would be good to show Stampin' Up that I actually knew HOW ... on at least ONE of the things that I submitted!!

Stamps: Faith in Nature
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Watercolor, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Simply Scored, Antique Brads, 5/8" Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Crystal Effects, Blender Pen, Sewing Machine, Dimensionals

Once again, it's time to move on to Amy Bollman's blog. MORE brilliance from her as well!
