I am so excited to be a part of this amazing group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators! If you haven’t heard of “The Crew” yet, you are going to be so thrilled with this. We are here to show you the versatility of one stamp set every time we hop (the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month). We have a whole team of people and different stampers participate each time. Like you, we look to find ways to maximize our investments and the single focus on one set allows you to see all the possibilities! This week, our featured stamp is Awesomely Artistic. This stamp set was near the top of my wish list in the new catalog and I just love the art style!
I am first on the list this month but if you are making the loop around the hop and came over from my dear friend Wendy Weixler, I’m so glad you are here! If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to The Stamp Review Crew blog.
I wanted to focus on this gorgeous flower! It is strong pretty enough to carry a whole card with very little else needed, so I wanted to show that off a bit. I cut a card base from Thick Whisper White and stamped the flower in Momento Black Ink. I colored straight onto the image using my Stampin’ Write Markers in Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight. Choose light colors if you want to do this so you can still see the pretty images. I went back over the places I wanted darker to add a little color variation. Super fast and oh so pretty, don’t you think? I created this oval frame with my Ovals Framelits and popped it up on Dimensionals (actually pieces of Dimensionals). The sentiment from the set was stamped to give balance and then I added on a few Basic Pearls. I think card would be pretty if created as a set!!!
I hope you like this one. Like you, I can’t wait to see all that the others have for inspiration! Hop on over to Bronwyn Eastley to continue on your way around. I can promise you’ll be inspired! So glad you dropped in today. See you again soon!
