Hello, Love! Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop

Hello friends, and welcome to my blog!  You are probably coming from the incomparable Rochelle Blok in Australia (not going to lie - pretty intimidated to be next in line; Rochelle is a tough act to follow!) and you're visiting me, Shannon Lane, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  I'm so glad you're here! 


I'm so, so excited to welcome you to the first official blog hop of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team.  We are the official design team for Stampin' Up!, and I'm so pleased to be back for a second year with a brand new group of ladies (and a few of my returning friends!)  

We are kicking off the month with a themed blog hop - and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, our assignment this week was the Sealed With Love bundle - you'll find this in your beautiful Occasions 2017 catalogue, which is loaded with amazing goodies.

I am one of the first to admit that traditional isn't my jam.  It never has been.  Valentine's Day can be more than just red and white, so don't let the patterns and colours in the Designer Series Paper make you disregard this collection entirely!  Grab those stamps and dies and get to work creating something fabulous, funky, and YOU.


This girl LOVES colour - the brighter, the better - so I ignored the classic red and pale blue and dove directly to my Brights.  These three colours make one of my all-time favourite colour combinations; Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo.  Paired with the stark contrast of crisp Whisper White and bold Basic Black, this card is modern and fun - perfect for your new-school valentine!


Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope this is your first of many visits this year!  Let's go see Sylwia in Germany and see what she's created for us!   


Cheers and happy stamping! 
Shannon
