Artisan Wednesday WOW!

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Artisan Wednesday WOW! Today the 2013 Artisan Design Team will be posting projects we recently shared on Stampin' Up!s facebook page.

Have you checked out the recently released Circle Card Thinlit Die? It is the easiest way to make a fun and quick interactive card! (Be sure to visit Stampin' Up!s Circle Card Thinlit Die Pinterest Board for interactive card inspiration.) Did you know these fun dies are capable of so much more? After seeing a cute gift bag a friend and fellow demonstrator Candice Anderson created, I set out to see the multiple uses of this handy little die. . . mini-albums, gift card holders, table place cards, and various gift bags and boxes! Who knew so many projects could be created with just one die!



 After some positive responses to the FB post (thank you!), and even a couple of e-mail requests, I decided to go WAAAYYYY out of my comfort zone and put together a video tutorial, which I have to apologize in advance for. . . I don't do video tutorials very often, and am by no means a good presenter. I tend to get super nervous and clear my throat often (which is very annoying, but I keep doing it no matter how many times I re-record and try not to), I also tend to use odd words like "protrude" instead of normal words like "poke out", but my brain tends to get scrambled when I am uncomfortable and I have a difficult time thinking, speaking, etc. So, be forewarned. . . I am a dork! Here it goes. . .



Be sure to check out ALL 10 projects from the 2013 Artisan Design Team, they have some super fun projects to share! Next, let's go visit Cathy In the Cat Cave. . . 

 

 Supplies Used: Background Builders and Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set; VersaMark ink pad; Soft Sky and Basic Black cardstock, Sweater Weather DSP; Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit; White and Early Espresso Stampin' Emboss Powder; Heat Tool; Circle Card Thinlits; Big-Shot Die-Cutting Machine; Simply Scored Scoring Tool; Sticky Strip; other: magnets (or Velcro) for closure.
