Can you believe we made it through 31 straight days of Artiste awesomeness?!! Well, I did take 2 days off…. I have learned so much by participating in this Blog Hop and I am so thankful that I managed to overcome my fear of how much work it would be. I would have missed out on so much if I’d followed my first inclination and said “Post a project everyday for a month….are you crazy?” I want to thank Gloria Rogers for coming up with this challenge and organizing the hop.
Speaking of hop, you should have hopped here from Adeline’s blog. Just continue from link to link until you come full circle.
Today it’s “artist choice” again and I decided to make a card for my niece’s birthday later in September.
I love the way this card front interlocks and opens. I used the retired Lucy paper pack and blush cardstock. The card is on page 44 of the handbook and the cupcake is on page 69. The card is cut at 5.5” and the cupcake at 2.5. If I had cut the cupcake a bit smaller, it would have worked with the matching stamp, but I wanted it this size. The larger zig zag circle is from page 35 and is stamped in Sweet Leaf ink with the coordinating stamp from the Artiste collection. I even used a shape from Art Philosophy on this one! Flower 5 on page 48 of the A.P. handbook is stamped with the “life is tweet” sentiment from June’s Stamp Of The Month. The border inside the card is also from this set. The inside sentiment is from the birthday stamp set that is part of the Artiste collection.
I hope that you have been inspired this month by all of the Artiste artwork on this Blog Hop and that you will continue to check in and comment from time to time. I’d love it if you would become a regular follower!
Now, go on over to Paisley’s Playhouse to see Amy’s final Artiste in August creation.
