It's a Celebration, Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Today the 2015-2016 Artisan Design Team are sharing their final blog hop with you. What an amazing experience this has been! I am so thankful for the whole adventure and all the wonderful people I've met along the way.

I wanted to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  So I've made this 'It's a Celebration' card for you today. If you haven't noticed, I do love to heat emboss.  I love the professional, polished look it gives a project.  The gold and silver heat embossing powders were perfect for adding a metallic shine to this 'sparkler'.  I've stamped them directly onto Dapper Denim card stock, creating first the silver stick - then the gold sparkles.  I added sponging in Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugar Plum and White Craft Ink to lend a glowing, night time feel to the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  While this is the last Stampin' Up! Artisan hop for this year don't be sad!  Please find listed below the 2017 team.  Do be sure to pop over to their blogs, see their creations and look forward to seeing more Stampin' Up! inspiration in the New Year.

Next up on the hop is fellow Aussie Jess.
