Welcome back to the final 2015-16 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. It has been a great year and I have been honored to work with such an amazing group of talented demonstrators from all around the world. For my last ADT blog hop I had hoped to go out with a bang, but instead, it turned out to be more like a soft and gentle whisper. I made this lovely card with the Frosted Medallions stamp set. This set sneaks up on you and before you know it you are in love! Be sure to check back tomorrow. I will have another beautiful project using this amazing stamp set on our December Fancy Friday Blog Hop.
This card started with a 3.75"x5.5" Crumb Cake cardstock panel. I stamped the large snowflake medallion with VersaMark ink and splattered the background with VersaMark refill using a stiff brush. Then I covered everything with white embossing powder and used a heat tool to set it. Next, I created a thread nest with some silver metallic thread and added a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper punched with the Flower Medallion punch. I stamped and fussy cut a second medallion and layered that on top as well. Finally, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and added it to the top. I mounted the panel on a top-folding Basic Black card base and added a few sequins.
This was my third time as an Artisan Award Winner/Artisan Design Team member and it has been such an blessing. However, I did not apply for the upcoming team. Being on the Artisan Design Team requires an extraordinary amount of time and dedication and I needed a break to focus on family. There are so many talented demonstrators and I thought that it was only fair to give other stars a chance to shine. I have several friends on the new 2017 Artisan Design Team and I am excited to see what they have to share over the next year. You will probably recognize some of the team members, but there are also a lot of fresh, new faces. Be sure to show your support by leaving lots of uplifting comments on their blog hops beginning in January. In the mean time, I don't plan on going anywhere, so don't forget to stop by and say "hi" every once in a while! Thank you so much for your love and support!

I hope you have been inspired by today's project and maybe even give it a try. If you are already going through the hop, you should have just arrived here from visiting our Artisan Team Leader and my super good friend, Cindy Schuster. When you leave here you will travel on to visit the amazing Inge Groot. Our team this year is super talented and I am going to miss them greatly! XOXO
I WOULD LOVE TO BE YOUR DEMONSTRATOR!
