The Stamp Review Crew: Sale-A-Bration Edition
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
Today’s card is a feminine – and versatile – one for sure! By changing out the sentiment, (I used the “Thank You” sentiment from another Sale-A-Bration set, Heartfelt Blooms), this card could be used for a birthday card, wedding card, anniversary card, thinking of you, and more.
Although it has a clean and simple layout, this card sports extra-special details which give it a “WOW” factor, including pearls and a bow created from Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon.
The Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates yummy texture.
Of course, the focal point of this card is the beautiful bouquet of lavender. The image was stamped three times, and water colored using Blender Pens and the following inks: Old Olive, Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum. They were fussy cut with paper snips and arranged onto an oval created from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Won’t you let me know in your comment?

You do incredible work. I simply love the Lots of Lavender card you created. And the time and effort you put into it has paid off. It is truly a beautiful card. I plan on CASEing this one and will be sure to give you the credit (if mine looks good). Thanks for sharing.
Gorgeous and elegant! Love it!
Like the use of the embossing folder…nice card and I like the picture of Jack! Diane Gil
Elegance at it’s best Ann! This beautifully clean, yet textured and detailed card is stunning! You always inspire Ann! xx
Adding the 3D layers and the pretty pop of pearls makes this card so pretty. Love all the textures that make it so interesting.
Wow!!! I love the gorgeous simplicity of this card – just stunning! The pearls & ribbon are perfect! Kelly x
Oh Ann that is stunning. Love all of the fussy cut detail. Divine!
Simply stunning! I love the embossing folder with this stamp set and all the white space really lets that lavender bouquet shine!
Oh, Ann, this is so elegant….I’m just speechless! Every little detail is perfection. *sigh*
This is the perfect stamp set for you, I think! Complete with lovely organza ribbon and pearls. Very beautiful!
Oh my, Jackie is another gorgeous specimen! Your card is lovely too.
Love all the texture and detail on this card!
Love the dimension and texture. Such a pretty card. Of course there are your signature pearls to make it extra sweet and feminine.
Jackie is a very handsome young man.
This is beautiful! I like that you used the stamp 3 times to create your full bouquet.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I look forward to seeing all the special details you include with each of your projects.
Oh so pretty of a card. Your an expert at fussy cutting. Me, not so much! I wish every stamp set came with matching dies!
Eye catchingly beautiful!!!
Wow, a real stunner, your card is gorgeous and three layers of lavender – fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
I see the pearls have come back out to play 🙂 I love everything about this card. The white on white texture, the amazing fussy cut layers, the stitched oval, and those delightful pearl accents!
Gorgeous card, Ann! Of course you added pearls 🙂 I love the ribbon around the stems. It’s the perfect touch.
Gorgeous! Love how you fussy cut it out and then those signature pearls from that luscious bow on there are the frosting on the cake. Plus that embossing folder and a few random pearls just added so much fun texture. Beautiful. I was at a retreat and we used the lavender stamp on a card but we used Elegant Eggplant and it was really pretty too and stamped off one time for the second stamping. I wasn’t sure I would like the stamp set but I am glad I have it now!
There is that handsome Jackie complete with another ribbon. Stunning boy!
Your bouquet of lavender is fabulous! You do know your way around those paper snips! The embossed background is the perfect backdrop!
Oh, Ann! This is such a beautiful card!!
So much awesome texture! ❤️❤️❤️
