Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Sweet Conversations edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Kristie's blog, My Paper Life, welcome! There are only five of us today so the hop won't take too long, but you are sure to find some sweet inspiration!
Sweet Conversations is a really cute 17 piece photopolymer set that has a coordinating 16 piece die set called Sweet Hearts Dies. It's all about the candy conversation hearts we all loved when we were kids and is part of the Sweet Talk Suite Collection that starts on page 8 of the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.
I have two cards to share today, so I'll start with my favorite of the two. When I think of Valentine's day, I always think of red & white. But this card adds a rainbow of color in the background with the Sweet Talk DSP. It was die cut with a Scalloped Contours die as was the greeting panel.
I stamped and die cut the hearts and popped them up on dimensionals, then added a double bow (Playful Pets Combo Pack) and some red rhinestones. The background was embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder that is part of the suite.
Even though I could have die cut hearts from the Sweet Talk DSP, for the second card I stamped them instead and popped them up on a Hippo & Friends label embossed with the Gingham folder.
A strip of Ombre Specialty Paper added some more glitz and brings out the Iridescent Rhinestones.
