Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop | Posted for You Bundle

 Hello Stamping Friends! Welcome to our very last 2020 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop for December and for the year. I can't believe we are at our last post already! Just feels like yesterday when the 2020 Artisan Team was announced. Queue all the tears and all the feels!

 It feels just like yesterday when this amazing journey began. While this year has been completely crazy and downright unbelievable and unprecedented, I have truly loved every minute of it and still can't believe that I was givne this opportunity of a lifetime to represent Stampin' Up! on the ADT for a third time. I am so very grateful for everything that this team has brought. Also a big thank you to all of you who have supported me along the way! 

Today we have projects for you using the Posted for You Bundle, found in the Stampin' Up! 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalogue. This bundle includes the Posted for You Cling Stamp Set and the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Create postcards and greeting cards for almost any occasion with the delicate line-art and the postage stamp-sized images in the Posted for You Stamp Set. The Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch creates fun postage stamp shapes and the some of the images from the Posted for You Stamp Set fit in this fantastic postage stamp-sized shape.

I have two projects for you today using the Posted for You Bundle. I've gone for a tone on tone look with the Square Vellum Doilies over Shimmery White Cardstock and then a little bit of colour with colouring the floral images with Rococo Rose Ink.

I stamped the floral images with Jet Black Stazon Ink on the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I stamped the flowers on the paper with my Stamparatus just so that I could repeat stamp the image incase there was a problem the first time stamping. Sometime when stamping on the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper you don't always get a crisp, clear image, due to the texture of the paper, so the Stamparatus makes it super easy to stamp again without having to line everything up again.

The flowers were coloured with Rococo Rose Ink using a Water Painter and then I coloured the leaves with Just Jade Ink. Once the images were dry I fussy cut them out using my Paper Snips and then layered them in a cluster to the left and right of the Happy Birthday sentiment.

My second card uses all the same elements, but layered differently on the front of the card and in the Landscape direction as opposed to my first card in the Portrait direction.  I do tend to make most of my cards in  the Portrait orientation so it's nice to change it up a bit for a different look. 

I used the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch as one of the elements in my layering as opposed to stamping one of the images from the Posted for You Stamp Set and then punching that out. I punched out the Rectangular Postage Stamp in Shimmery White Cardstock and then layered a piece of the Shimmery White over the punched out piece for that extra finesse and layering. That little bit of layering on the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch combined with the all the other layering and elements really adds that refinement to the proejcts.

 To finish off both cards I layered the 'postmark' that I embossed with Gold Stampin Emboss Powder on Vellum and then layered the Happy Birthday over top. I also used Linen Thread. Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon and Pearl Basic Jewels to bring that whole refined look together.

This really is such a versatile bundle and from all the projects from the rest of the team shows that this bundle can be used for nearly every occasion.
 Now on to the Artisan Design Team for 2021. This is such an amazing team from all over the world that, I have not doubt, will inspire you with their projects.  Make sure you visit their Blogs/Instagram/Facebook/Pinterest and follow them! You won’t want to miss their amazing creations! A whole lot of talent right there that's for sure!

  1. sigh... perfection again. :-)
    The way you layer elements is truly wonderful. The tiny scallop edge of ribbon, the vellum doily, the postage stamp itself - it's a masterclass. Great to work with you, Rochelle. :-)
