Cuttin and Stampin Design Team Blog Hop

I am so excited to be sharing some news with you today … I am a new member of the Cuttin and Stampin Design Team!!!!!
Blog Hop Blinkie
Cuttin and Stampin’s challenge blog is one year old!!  With that they decided to make a few changes including bringing you different types of projects, to do that they needed increase the number of members on the team. With all the new members they  also decided to split the team in to two, a Green Team and an Orange Team.  I am a member of the Green Team which is being introduced today!!  My role on the green team is MIXED MEDIA!!  You will find my projects on ‘Mixed Media Monday’ every other Monday.
Before I get to my project today, here is the line up for the Green Team hop:  (you are going to see some AMAZING work!)
Cuttin and Stampin (this is where you should have started)
Michele (that’s me)
Be sure to stop by each of their blogs and welcome them to the 2014 Design Team. There will be a drawing for each day of the hop. Just leave a comment at each stop along the way.  Winners will be announced on Friday at Cuttin and Stampin along with the regular weekly challenge winners.
OK, now for my project, we were asked to create a project that demonstrated our style…I am not exactly sure how I would describe my style but I created this tag to show you.
Tag
I used Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon for my tag base.  The awesome Um Wow Studios chipboard sunflower is painted with distress paint, gesso, distress stain, stickles and even has some seed beads for texture.  I used an UWS stencil with modeling paste to create some texture on the tag and stamped my FAVORITE VLVS! butterfly.  The fence it also UWS.
Sunflower close Stem close
All kinds of other little details…washi tape, thread, distressed edges, tiny attacher, splatters with mists and some Cosmo Cricket words.  The ribbon is seam binding stained with distress stain.
Rip close Your next stop is Jenni but before you leave make sure you leave a comment below (and along the way) because besides the awesome prizes from Cuttin and Stampin I am going to be drawing one winner from my comments to win a grab bag of scrappy goodness from me!  Just a little token of appreciation because I really do appreciate each and every comment you leave!!
Oh, and make sure you stop by Cuttin and Stampin  tomorrow too for the Orange Team introductory blog hop with more awesome projects and prizes!!
You can also shop for fun scrappy supplies at the Cuttin and Stampin facebook store!  You will find some super deals on great products!!

  3. Congratulations, Michele, on being a new DT member...you are going to be an AMAZING addition for Cuttin and Stampin because you never fail to inspire me and so many others with your work. :) I love your tag . . . and it fits your style perfectly. I would call your style "altery". When I see your work, it reminds me of DeeDee . . . and someday I will be able to say "I knew her when..." Again, Congrats . . . and GREAT job!!!

  12. I just love this tag. I love making tags. But I do not do it too much, I think I could easily get addicted to collecting them...I know for sure I would collect this one. Looking forward to having fun hopping along with you :)

  13. This is such a pretty and fun tag-especially considering the weather right now! Michele, I remember when you said over at CC that you wanted to do more mixed media projects like DeeDee. Well, you sure have evolved into a very talented and prolific mixed media artist! Congrats on making the DT :-)
