Artisan Award Winning Projects...

Good Morning!
I'm off enjoying the beach this week but thought I'd prepost my Artisan Award projects for those of you who weren't able to see them at convention. All of the Artisan Award winners will be posting projects this week as well- gotta love a blog hop!

So, when I was putting these projects together, I automatically went to one of my favorite stamp sets first. Can you guess which set I used?? Hee! Season of Friendship, of course! Here is my card:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Season of Friendship, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive
Paper: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay cardstock; The Write Stuff DSP; Thoroughly Modern DSP
Accessories: Scallop Edge punch, Soft Suede polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 1 3/8" Circle punch, paper piercer, dimensionals

This was one of the first projects I did for the Artisan Awards and it is also one of my favorites... I did this one before the mad rush to the end and I think I put a little more thought into it. I added lots of little details to this card to make it extra special... Dazzling Diamonds to the centers of all the hand cut flowers... DSP peaking out from underneath the focal point... cutting out the tree leaves so it looks like they're hanging over.

I don't have very good pictures of my projects. I wasn't able to take pictures of my projects before I sent them in and I haven't been on my own computer to use the editing tools I'm used to. So, you get snapshots from convention- sorry!

Now that you've seen one of my projects, go and check out the rest of the Artisan Award winners:

Heather Van Duker
Elizabeth Price

Becky Cowley

Sarah Sergent is the only one among us who doesn't have a blog. Bummer, right? Her work is really great so hopefully she'll be able to upload them somewhere for everyone to see!

Thanks for stopping by today!
