It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Sale-A-Bration Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! This week we are featuring Sale-A-Bration stamp sets. Sale-A-Bration is one of Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sales of the year, where customers can earn free, exclusive products with every qualifying order. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Mickey Roberts. Her work is beautiful! After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the incomparable Nikki Spencer. She is always an inspiration. Enjoy this week’s hop!
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?
