Happy Birthday, Gorgeous - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Welcome to Calgary, Alberta, Canada for this week's Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop.  You've likely come from the lovely and incredibly talented Rochelle Blok in Australia; thanks for stopping by!  I won't keep you long, and you'll be off to Germany to visit Sylwia.  Please get comfortable and make your way around the world with us - we're happy to have you!

Today we are featuring a stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue that I didn't even notice at first glance; it slipped under the radar for me, and I'm so glad it was brought to my attention with this blog hop, because I absolutely love it!  I've used it several times already and each time, I fall deeper in love.  It's gorgeous.

My friends, this is Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  She's a beauty!

Et pour mes ami Francophone, c'est aussi disponible en Francais!  

The images in this stamp set are both simple and few, but less is more when they work beautifully together to create a big impact. 

A pretty birthday card with just a few sweet stamps is perfectly accompanied by a matching gift box.

The flowers and leaves layer beautifully, and the colour combinations are endless.  I've used Flirty Flamingo Bermuda Bay, and Emerald Envy for my stamped images with a touch of Lemon Lime Twist and Silver to accent.

Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper adds a fun pop of glitz to a card, and also creates a beautiful coordinating bow - just the right size to top a Clear Tiny Treat Box, and perfectly filled with some fun pink jelly beans.  How perfect is that for a gift or a party favour?  Yum!

Let's go see what magnificently lovely project Sylwia has for us today - I'm so excited to see all of the possibilities with this gorgeous stamp set! 

All of the supplies used are from Stampin' Up!, and are available 24/7 in my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! store.  Don't forget the June ordering bonus - use host code VKJU2FK6 at checkout and receive a yard of brand-new Stampin' Up! ribbon for free with every $30 ordered (excludes shipping and tax.)
