Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop | Flower Shop11:00:00 AM
Thanks so much for stopping by today. This is my first post back on my blog after our AMAZING vacation. My wife and I just returned from the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip (we extended a bit).
Its my first day back at work today, so back to reality.....with a THUD!
Today, I'm having a part in the blog hop with the Stamp Review Crew. This is a group of stamping enthusiasts - each blog hop features ONE STAMP SET, thus showing how versatile that particular set it.
Today, the hop revolves around a stamp set called 'Flower Shop.' This is what the stamp looks like;
Im going to make a bold statement here - I think that Emerald Envy is my new favourite colour! It is one of the new 2016/2017 Stampin' Up! In-Colours and I think you are going to love it.
I'll be honest and say that I didn't really have a plan when starting this card. I started off using the Pansy Punch and punched a heap of them and tried laying them out. Didn't like that. Then I had the idea of cutting them into smaller pieces and making a pattern (like fish scales) and thats what I went with. I used this punch because it coordinates with the Flower Shop stamp set.
What do you think of this colour combination?
This stamp set doesn't have a sentiment, so I borrowed one from the Floral Phrases set (you are going to LOVE that). As I was about to mount the sentiment layer to the layer beneath (using dimensionals), I thought it could do with another texture, so I added some of the new ruched ribbon - I don't mind how it looks either.
I tried a few different versions of the flower, but I ended up going for the single stamp. I think there is enough business in the background that the sentiment can be simple. I finished it off using a small enamel dot in Emerald Envy.
Oh, one last shot - I had to show my new personalised stamp set - don't you love it? How cool!!!
