Shimmery Artisan Design Team Blog Hop...

Who is ready for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop?!?!  πŸ™‹ I know I AM!!!!  First of all...I have to ask...have you noticed the SHIMMER DETAILED LASER-CUT SPECIALTY PAPER (item # 149611) in the Annual Catalog yet?!  If the answer is no....well you are about to!  Because that is what this hop is all about!  Yay!!!!  I LOVE this paper.  One one side, it is all shimmery and more vanilla color.  On the other side...it is white.  So either look you need...this paper has it!!!  Angela shared some amazingly fun projects on her blog, if you are coming from there.  So now I want to share mine!  πŸ˜€


I love the fun details that these paper give!  These projects would be so boring without them!  Hee.  Although the watercolored pieces are pretty cool.  Here they both are before they were added to the cards:



But on to the finished projects in more detail!  Here is the standard sized card:



Colors: Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Whisper White
Inks: Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Gray Granite, Calypso Coral, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper
Stamps: Inspiring Iris
Tools: Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Timeless Label Punch, Take Your Pick Tool (sequins placement), Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder
Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Iridescent Sequin Assortment, Pineapple Punch 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon

I just cut that lattice piece out of the laser-cut sheets.  Adhered it over the watercolor piece, and then added a few elements. 

(Should we talk for a second about how much I love the Timeless Label Punch-item #149516?!  I LOVE the shape, size, just everything! about it!  πŸ˜€) 

I love how that shimmery lattice just pops with the watercoloring behind it. And those sequins!! 😍



And how can you NOT just love this little bird mini?!  This is a 3x3 card, and I just love it. 



Colors: Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gray Granite
Inks: Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gray Granite, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers: Gray Granite, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper
Stamps: Inspiring Iris
Tools: Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Take Your Pick Tool (sequins placement), Country Floral Embossing Folder
Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Iridescent Sequin Assortment, Nature's Twine

Once again...the watercolor background just makes that cute bird pop.  😍  I just love that little guy.  I also love the other fun touches.  That "crinkle" Baker's Twine (just pulled a few strands from the Grapefruit Grove color in the Nature's Twine pack - item #146342) is soooo cute.  And always love a white on black greeting.  πŸ˜€


And once again...those sequins!  😍

I so hope you enjoy these cards!  Let me just tell you that you are in for a TREAT (and a healthy one at that!  Haha) with this blog hop! The projects are so fabulous!!!  Next up is AurΓ©lie and you will love what she has to share with you today! Then check out a sneak peak of all the projects below!
