Almost Artisan 1

As many of you already know, Stampin' Up! holds a contest each year for its demonstrators called the Artisan Award. The competition is very tough and hundreds of people enter each year. This year I entered and I did not win :( But, intead of feeling sorry for myself, I will be showcasing all 10 entries on my blog over the next few weeks. And I stole the title of my post from another group of Demonstrators who created a blog hop to showcase their 'Almost Artisan' entries.

This card was made by first punching out the butterflies with the Big Shot. Then I used the tiniest bit of masking tape to secure the butterflies on the card where I wanted them. Then I used the Colour Spritzer Tool and Stampin' Write markers to spray ink on the card.

Stamps: Oval All
Ink: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Pretty In Pink
Punches: Large Oval and Scallop Oval
Accessories: Whisper White 5/8” Satin Ribbon, Pretties Kit, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Color Spritzer Tool
Adhesives: SNAIL, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals
