Hello and welcome to the Artisan Design Teams Blog Hop in July. This month was super exciting as we have a mix of projects using two different bundles that are available from the Annual Catalogue. The bundle that I am featuring today is the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle. If you are addicted to your coffee, chocolates & cocktails like I am, you’ll love this bundle.
I’m going to start off by going walking you through my thought process on these project. Sometimes I just get something in my head and can’t step away from it. As soon as I saw the images I was getting this 70’s/80’s American Diner vibe, you might agree. With this in mind I wanted to recreate that style in the cards I created. Easier said than done.
There was so much inspiration out there from old magazine adverts to looking at retro signs, just nothing fit with the look I wanted. In the end inspiration hit in the form of a retro clock. It has all the shapes that you would expect just in funky contemporary colours. These almost have a The Jetsons feel to it due to the colour combo.
The Nothing’s Better Than Bundle is perfect for repetitive imagery on your project. I stamped the small star image over the Pacific Point card to create a unique background. To mix it up a little for the coffee card I included the coffee cup with the heat waves with the stars. I love how this matches with the Dainty Diamond 3D Embossing Folder.
Right now I’m busy getting ready to send out the August-December Mini Catalogue, you can request one here.
I really hope you enjoyed the projects created with the Nothing Better Than Bundle. If you are following the hop then you would have arrived here from the amazing Martha Groeger. Next up is my wonderful friend Narelle Farrugia, make sure you go give her some love for her projects.
