Artisan August 2019 Blog Hop _ Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper_Bride & Wedding Gift Set

Welcome to the August 2019 Artisan Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!  This blog hop will feature creations using the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from the  2019-2020 Annual Catalog. 

My trio of bridal/wedding creations were inspired by a birthday invitation that I received in the mail the day that I sat down to create!  It was gorgeously done in blues, grays, and roses…I just had to give it a shot.

The wedding card above was created as follows:

1) Cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 7 1/8 x 7 1/8.  Score and fold at 3 5/8.

2) Smooch a 7 x 3 1/2 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Smoky Slate Classic Ink. (You can see my instructions regarding the smooching technique here).  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

3) Use Paper Snips to cut the sections of the FULL 12 x 12 Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper into individual sections.  Use the following Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the VANILLA side (not the shimmer):  Light & Dark Smoky Slate, Light & Dark Night of Navy, Dark Balmy Blue.  Adhere to the card with snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

4) Stamp the sentiment (twice) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy (removes static). Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Snip one full sentiment to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Use Paper Snips to closely trim the “congratulations” of the 2nd stamped sentiment, then adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

5) Use a Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend to color several multi-sized Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  Adhere to the card and flowers as shown.

The Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Pack comes as 6 sheets; 3 with a full 12 x 12 design and 3 with distinct patterns that can be cut to size and used as card fronts.  My three creations only utilize pieces from the full 12 x 12 design.  Several of the Artisan’s in the hop will also showcase designs from the distinct patterns, so be sure to have a peek.
