Picture Perfect Blossoms, Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Thursday, January 14, 2016


I was really drawn to this pretty hummingbird when I first saw the Picture Perfect stamp set in the new Occasions catalogue at Stampin' Up!'s Onstage event in November.  I'm so glad to feature it in this project today!

I began this design with the bird which I chose to layer in tones of garden green, island indigo, black and hello honey, with just a touch of rose red in the beak.  Then I've applied the beautiful 'Wink of Stella' in gold over the honey segments to add a pretty shimmer.  After fussy cutting it out, I adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals to a folded thick white cardstock base that I had sponged in lost lagoon and sky blue.  The roses (also from the Picture Perfect set) I stamped on another piece of white in tones of blushing bride and rose red before fussy cutting those out too and sticking them flat onto the bottom corner of the design.  I love flowers like these where you can get so much colour and detail just with stamps - no other colouring necessary.

The Love Blossoms designer series paper stack had the perfect rose red floral pattern to compliment the design.  The coordinating Love Blossoms embellishment kit supplied the finishing touches - blushing bride satin ribbon, the gorgeous paper clipped bow and shiny sequins.

The rest of the Artisan design team have been busy playing with these products, among others, and have some amazing creations to show you too! So click the button below to see more inspiring projects.
