I have never had the opportunity to visit Stampin' Up!'s Head Office in Utah.  It IS on my bucket list of places to go, however! It looks like an amazing place where wonderful, magical things happen.  Well, you only have to look at Stampin' Up!'s product range to know that is true!

Not only do they have a Display Area full of SU goodness, there is also a place called the Legacy Room.  This is where SU share their story from humble beginnings to today, where they share their philosophy and their creativity too.  A few months ago, the Artisan Design Team were approached to contribute to Sara's Legacy Room.  THE Sara Douglas, our lovely CEO.  What an honour!  I was so excited to know that one of my projects would be featured there and I am here today to share that project.

I have featured the You're Priceless stamp set on my card.  I thought it rather appropriate, as that is how many Demo's around the world feel about Sara.  We have also featured some of her favourite colours: Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Pool Party and Black.  Very striking.

I heat embossed all my gem stones in white embossing powder on watercolour paper, before using an Aqua painter to colour them in using those rich colours.  I really loved the stark contrast of those bright colours against a Basic Black base card.  It really made them pop even more!

The beautiful Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, in Berry Burst, added a touch of luscious elegance and the Iridescent Sequins, the sparkle this card deserved.  This was truly an honor to make!

Without further ado, it is time to head over to my good friend and fellow artisan, Jennifer Smith Sootkoos, to see her beautiful contribution to Sara's Legacy Room.
