Hello and welcome to January's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop and my very first as an Artisan Design Team member! I am so excited to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world and look forward to sharing our creations with you.
This month we are featuring the Forever Lovely and Meant to Be Bundles along with the All My Love Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Combo Pack. I've chosen to showcase the Meant to Be Stamp Set and co-ordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies together with the All My Love Designer Series Paper.
To create the background of my card I started with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. This cardstock is perfect for water colouring and performs perfectly! I used Flirty Flamingo ink to co-ordinate with the All My Love Designer Series Paper. The hearts are also in Flirty Flamingo and are from the co-ordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.

This gold heart frame is my favourite, I just think it's so cute!
And what's Valentine's Day without a cupcake? Under the little topper I've tied a bow in the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack - my lovely daughter made the icing to co-ordinate too!

And these are my wonderfully talented team members that I'm thrilled to be spending this year with.

Enjoy the rest of the hop, it's full of lots of fabulous projects and inspiration! 

Next up on the hop is my new friend and talented fellow team member Ashley Van Camp.

Yay what a great way to start the year - being a Guest Designer on the Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop! This team is full of amazingly creative Stampin' Up!® demonstrators and I'm thrilled to be asked to hop along.

The theme for this hop is Bendi Cards! I had never made one before and was excited to try something new. It was lots of fun and way easier than I thought. If you'd like to learn how to make a bendi card Jenny Hall has a great video tutorial here.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set which comes with a co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

"Celebrate Your Day!" is from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set also FREE during Sale-A-Bration - I love the fonts! The butterflies have been inked up in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana, I love how fresh and clean these colours look!

The accessories I've used for my card are the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Rhinestones and Silver Metallic Thread.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop for lots of bendi card inspiration. My gorgeous and talented friend Lou Kitzelman from Austrailia is up next.
