Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Love & Affection

 Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping in to see this week's ADT Blog Hop!  Our feature product this week is the Love & Affection Suite from the brand new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  With 20 Artisans all around the world, please make yourself comfortable, find your "translate" button, and join us on our blog hop!

With all of those pretty little flowers in this stamp set, the first thing that popped into my mind was collage stamping.  I wanted to create a little floral garden - marking a line with a pencil where the gold strip would go, I grabbed my colours and got to work!

What do you think of this colour combo?  I love working the new In-Colours into the returning favourites.  Here, I've combined Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy with Rose Red and Soft Suede.  So pretty.

A touch of gold and an embossed envelope flap complete this card and make it something extra-special.  

Let's swing over to Germany now and see what Steffi has for us this week.  Her projects are always so gorgeous and totally ingenious - pure paper art! 

As always, thank you so much for stopping in and hopping with us!
