Basket of Sunflowers - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends, and welcome back for another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!  We are hopping around the world tonight - our second last one of the year, sadly - which means you're probably coming from Rachel in France.  Thanks for visiting me (Shannon in Canada) today!

This week's post is an "open" hop, which means we can choose whatever we'd like from the last box of Artisan supplies.  Much to my surprise, I still had three stamp sets that were entirely unused!  I needed to remedy that, so I cracked open Basket of Wishes.  And I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous sunflower!

The colours in the All Year Long Project Life collection would coordinate perfectly with the images in this stamp set, so I pulled those too - Very Vanilla, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso, Delightful Dijon, and Crumb Cake.  So beautiful together, and great to accompany a basket of sunflowers.  I love the delicate printed vellum and the bold woodgrain.  So lovely!  

I'm a sucker for a good sentiment, but sometimes, a blank card is exactly what you need.  A delicate image stamped on the envelope adds a nice touch, too!

Let's visit Steffi next and see what she has up her sleeve...

Have a great day - happy stamping!
