Artisan Award Contest Projects

I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday ALREADY!! Well I finally got the chance to go in and search for my Stampin’ Up! Artisan Contest projects… and sadly I only found a few.  I can’t even remember how many of each category I was required to send in but here is what I found.  I made this 3-D project showcasing the Brights Buttons and LOTS of the MDS (My Digital Studio) images and sentiments.  This was a FUN project to create!
 You have no idea how many buttons I used on this thing!!
 This was the second 3-D project I made… I was going for a wall hanger somthin’ or nother… :-) I wanted to give this threading technique a try.  I saw some earnings in a store where I get outfits for my daughter and they had all these threads spun around this spring to create a similar effect as whats on the heart… It was as close as I could get and I was pretty happy with it. :)
 Here is a card I made using the gingham technique with the STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER.  I created the butterfly with the Doily Die (I just cut out it’s body from the different scallops…) I made the other body parts and trail from rhinestones.  I made the larger wings with the Blossom punch and a cool technique to get scallops behind that large 2-1/2″ circle punch at the bottom… I will share that with you on MONDAY!!
 I popped up some of the words in the sentiment and layered additional card stock behind and then finished off with TINTED DAZZLING DETAILS– homemade of course!!
 I made a VersaShadow technique card using this floral set (I am SO SORRY, it is SERIOUSLY late and I can’t remember. I will come back in today and edit to add links and all the proper names)
 Here is one of the scrap pages I made… I think this is ONE of the many reasons I was disqualified, I used DSP that wasn’t available in the catalog at the time of entry for this project.  I found this cool technique (don’t have a name for it) on pintrest where they took layers of cloth and sliced them open and they became worn and showed the layers… I tried to recreate this effect on paper- it was MUCH harder than I anticipated and MAN this page took me forever!! But look at those ADORABLE babies!!
 Maybe this is a better view?
Ok, so I will come back in and list all the deets this afternoon/evening and thanks SO much for being SO patient.  I wanted to tell you that I have a surprise for ALL my MAILING LIST MEMBERS– it has to do with my FACEBOOK PAGE and WINNING PRIZES, you will get more details in a few more days…  BUT ONLY my MAILING LIST MEMBERS will be eligible to win!  Want to join NOW?
