Artisan Design Team Wednesday Wow

Thank you for joining me today for this weeks Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! Hopefully you have arrived from the talented Wendy Weixler's blog. If not, keep clicking on the button at the bottom of each blog post and hop to work your way back around.

This week's projects were all about the Swallowtail stamp for me. I love butterflies and was very excited to work with this huge Swallowtail stamp!

The first project I have to share with you is a scrapbook page of my husband Michael and I. I embossed the butterfly with Pool Party embossing powder and the flower is from the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit. I spritzed it with Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I love the way Whisper White cardstock looks like when it's spritzed with a color. I also included some washi tape as an accent on this page.

The second project I made this week is a journal cover. I don't keep a journal, but I do draw out A LOT of scrapbook sketches. This book has all my sketches from March 2013 until I run out of space. I used the new stamp from the This and That bundle to stamp the date at the bottom and once it's finished, I'll stamp the date below. I also used the washi tape from the new bundle - I really love that washi tape!
The Swallowtail is sponged with Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Calypso Coral and Pool Party, then stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock. I am very happy with my new sketch book!

Thanks for hopping along with us this week. I hope you have enjoyed this week's projects. Please continue on to Cindy's blog to see what amazing-ness she has in store for you this week!
