Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Hop - Coordination Product Release 2

Welcome to the Artisan Design Team's Coordination Product blog hop! I hope you're enjoying seeing what everyone's doing with the different products from the release. Each of us got a different product to showcase. I'm happy to say that I got the Nature's Thoughts dies. These coordinate with the Positive Thoughts stamp set from the January-June Mini Catalogue. In addition to putting an end to fussy cutting, these dies also bring extra life to the set in the form of  coordinating dies such as the fern fronds and the lacy border strip.

Here are two of the cards I made with this stamp and die set, using Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow.

This card shows off the extra die-cut fern fronds, which I've given a lick of Wink of Stella. It also show the lovely wavy stitched edged rectangle die. In addition to the die that matches the butterfly stamp, there's also a sweet lace-winged butterfly.

The second card not only shows off the tiny lace-wing butterfly and the wavy stitched edge die but also the lacy border strip that's under the sentiment. Super, isn't it? As well as a die that matches the flower stamp, there's an interesting die that gives you a 3D flower centre. I've accentuated it by using the chalk marker to add some white to the raised sections and adding a large rhinestone to the centre. That very pretty maidenhair fern die cut is shown again in this card - really, it's just too pretty not to use!

Last month, the Artisan Design Team did a hop using the various products from the Coordination Release when the items were available for demonstrator pre-order. If you missed that hop, or would like to refresh your memory, then here is the link to my post on that hop. In that hop, I used  the Pleased as Punch DSP with the Heart Punch. From my post, you can carry on around that hop too.

Make sure that you contact your demonstrator and order your Coordination Products today as they are only available until 31 March or while stocks last.

Next up on the current hop is Lauren Alarid, aka The Crafty Little Peach, whose projects are sure to delight you.

If you get lost along the way, here's a list of all the Artisan Team Blog links to help you back on track.
