2013 Artisan Entry #1

Hello and welcome to the 2013 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are spending the next 10 days showing you the projects we slaved over to submit to Stampin' Up! these are our babies and we are SO PROUD to show them off!

First up for me is  one of my five cards. This also served as the basic inspiration for my Artisan swap card. 
My favorite part of this card is the double embossing. I inked both sides of  the Honeycomb embossing Folder with Tempting Turquoise ink. Each side gives you a different look. 

It took several tries to get it perfect. I recommend you use a brayer to ink the embossing folder. 

I used my favorite My Paper Pumpkin stamp  for the sentiment. Lots of layers here as well. 
Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you hop all the way along, you won't want to miss all of the amazing ladies on this team. 

Up next is my friend and the UBER talented Jane Lee. Hop on over to check out her AMAZING-ness!
