Sealed with Love Topiary - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the first Artisan Design Team Blog Hop for 2017 and MY very first post as an Artisan Design Team Member - I'm stilling pinching myself! 

What is the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team? 
The Artisan Design Team is a group of creative and talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world selected by Stampin' Up! to blog about the projects they create.  

A little bit about me: I love the colour pink, a good cup of tea and all things pretty (and of course all things Stampin' Up! - that's a given!) I have the most amazing, supportive and patient husband and together we have two children; Emily (13) and James (11).

You may have just arrive here from Kimberly Van Diepen, isn't her work just stunning?! At the bottom of the page please hit the next button to move around and see all the beautiful projects we have in store using the January focus product, Sealed with Love.

Because paper plants are the only ones I keep alive, this was the best way I could send my friend a plant without killing it! lol 
I decided my card just had to be pink and used Rose Red cardstock for the base colour. I used a sponge dauber to stamp the heart and die cut it using the coordinating Love Note Framelits Dies. The square box was created using the small striped stamp and I lined them quite easily as the stamp set is photopolymer and the little heart leaves were cut with papersnipps after stamping using the small heart - cute huh!

Next on the hop is my new friend and talented papercrafter, Maike Ulbrich from Germany.


If you live in Australia I would love to be your Demonstrator.  You can press on the supply list below to purchase any of the items:

  2. Wow, your talent wit paper snips is amazing! There is no way I could have cut out those sweet little heart leaves, lol. I haven't used Rose Red in so long, this has inspired me to pull it out again soon :) Adorable topiary. Creating with you over the next year is going to be amazing!

  18. Yes it is so so cute! I like how you coordinated the crumb cake cs with the linen thread and the navy thrown in there is quite striking. This would be sweet on a note card too but not as pretty without all those additional layers but i might try something similar but smaller. You are brilliant as USUAL!
