Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Forever Lovely

Welcome to my very first post as a member of the 2019 Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team! I am so honoured to be part of this team of amazingly talented stampers from around the world and am excited for our first blog hop today. 

Today we are showcasing the beautiful products in the All My Love Suite in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, in particular the Forever Lovely Stamp Set. 

I love the gorgeous floral images and script fonts in this set and while it is perfect for Valentines projects, it is also perfect for weddings, engagements, even a pretty feminine birthday card.

When creating this card I took my colour cues from the All My Love Designer Series Paper and  chose to embellish the card with some flowers die cut with the coordinating Lovely Flower Edgelits and a little Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.

Now, when I am giving someone a handmade card as an accompaniment to a gift I can't help but coordinate the gift wrapping with the card. My base was the same floral print from the All My Love Designer Series Paper as a belly band wrapped around and Kraft Pillow Box, however, with this project I chose to add some die cut hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits and the sentiment came from the Meant To Be Stamp Set. 

Next on the hop is my lovely friend Angela Meiritz-Reid from New Zealand. Click on the link below to check out Angela's amazing project and be sure to continue along the hop to see what my fellow teammates have created.
