Stampin' Up ADT Blog Hop: Clean + Simple Cards with Shine On!

Hello friends, and welcome back for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  I'm so glad you're joining us - our team of 20 designers spans the world, so please be sure to use the "Translate" button in your browser to follow along.  You're likely coming from Rachel in France, you're visiting me (Shannon) in Canada, and you'll be off to see Steffi in Germany next!

I've been totally head-over-heels with our Shine On Specialty DSP since the Occasions 2016 Catalog was launched - I've been working it into everything, and I wanted to use this blog hop to share a set of cards made with this fabulous paper!

It is so bright, bold, and fun that it takes the stage all on its own - it's perfect for rocking the clean and simple style.

I made a set of six cards in total, featuring three with metallic prints...

And three with the bold brights.

Even after they were done, I *still* couldn't decide which side I liked better!

The bold brights, featuring Cucumber Crush...

Bermuda Bay...

and Watermelon Wonder?

Or the gorgeous, shiny metallics in skinny stripes...

bold Vs...

and perfect polka dots?

In the end, it doesn't matter - the package comes with all of this and then some, so you'll never have to choose!

I know you'll want to go check out what Steffi has for us this week, so click the button to move over to Germany and on to her blog!  

Thanks so much for stopping by - happy crafting!  



  1. These are awesome. Don't laugh at me... my fav is the Miss You. I never thought in a million years I would be saying that about a Cucumber Crush card, but I AM. Love them all, but that one makes my eyeballs have sparklers in them. Love your work and how you can create such beautiful projects with bright colors.

  2. This is a truly fabulous set of cards, Shannon. Very nicely done!

  3. Love this set of bright and beautiful cards Shannon. They are each gorgeous in their own right but look so wow all together!!

  4. Picking a favourite of these is nearly impossible, they all rock. You killed it friend.

  5. These are amazing Shannon! I LOVE this DSP and like you, I'm torn between the sparkly and the vibrant. I'm with KVD on the Miss You card though - WOW! x

  6. Boy don't these look great together! I love them ALL

  7. Love, love, love these cards!! I would have a very hard time choosing my favourite one. Thank you for inspiring me, I really need to get out my specialty DSP now!
