Sharing Sweet Thoughts | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hi all,

This month's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop focuses on the Ronald McDonald House 2017-18 stamp set, Sharing Sweet Thoughts. This set is truly near and dear to my heart as I have been lucky enough to be involved with the Ronald McDonald House here in St. John's, Newfoundland. With every stamp set purchased, proceeds are donated to the Ronald McDonald House local charities.

It's such a special charity and trily makes a difference in the lives of families every day.  I am very proud of the association with Stampin' Up! and RMH.

For today's projects, I heat embossed the images with silver embossing powder onto water colour paper.  Using my aqua painter and my Stampin' Write markers I coloured both images creating a tag and card.

Of course, I have been obsessing about using multiple trims on my projects - you can see on the card, I layered several underneath the sentiment.  On the tag, I attached a couple using the silver mini sequin trim, white baker's twine and powder pink shimmer ribbon.

These projects were difficult to capture on camera but the silver really makes this project magical. Be sure to try using the silver embossing powder on your next project!

Thanks for dropping but don't stop here! Keep hopping to see inspiration from all twenty global Stampin' Up! Artisans. My friend, Dani from the United States is up next!
