It’s time for another round of inspiration from The Stamp Review Crew. If this is your very first visit, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first and third Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set. The result is you see the versatility of the set and the amazing things you can create with it. This week we are featuring Sheltering Tree. I am Stop #5 on the hop. You may have just left Stop #4: the talented Deb Currier. Her work is always fabulous. As for me…I designed two cards for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy today’s hop!
Card #1: Spring
- Beautiful blossoms! The Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla blossoms were created using the smallest flower die from the Flower Fair Framelits collection. The edges were snipped, after which a roller stylus was used to create the cup shape. Pearls were added to the center of each. The yellow pearls were colored with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.
- Fallen petals! A few blossoms were snipped apart and strewn across the grass. Wild Wasabi was the perfect soft green to use. The “Spring” sentiment is from the Project Life Day to Day stamp set.
- The Midas touch! How rich and regal is this! The image was embossed in gold onto Brushed Gold cardstock and then matted onto Gold Foil.
- Ice! Bits of icy sparkle were added to the limbs with Dazzling Details. The result is beautiful in real life.
Ack! As always, I had trouble photographing gold embossing and Brushed Gold cardstock. It is gorgeous in person. Although it is only March 1st, I may have found this year’s holiday card. It’s quick and easy…and oh, so pretty! I hope you enjoyed my two contributions to this hop. Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one. Of course, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Now hop along to Stop #6, Rochelle Blok. Her work never ceases to amaze me. And if you get lost along the way, you can find a list of all the hoppers at The Stamp Review Crew. Until next time…
