Welcome a bonus edition of the Stamp Review Crew's blog hop! 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. This week the Crew is featuring Love What You Do, a thirteen piece photopolymer stamp set that is part of the beautiful Share What You Love Suite on page 177 of the annual catalog.
I have two cards to share with you today The first one uses the Love What You Do DSP (love that stuff!) and the Pearlized Doilies and Artisan Pearls.
After stamping the background with Crumb Cake, the flower sprig was stamped with Memento ink, and then stamped again on a scrap of Whisper White so I could fussy cut the flowers and pop them up on dimensionals for more depth.
The image panel and greeting were die cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits that will be available next week. And of course I had to use some DSP to dress up the envelope flap!
The second card is simply black and white to really let the embossed Lovely Floral image shine. And speaking of shine, the Black Foil Sheets used for the mat are carrying over, woohoo!
The checkered background is from the Sale-a-Bration Botanical Butterfly DSP. It's lovely, with one side of each design in color and the back side in a black and white pattern. So many possibilities!
I did dress up the envelope flap with the checkered pattern, but totally forgot to take a picture. Oops. You can see in this angled shot the subtle shine of the doily and the black foil. It's really gorgeous in real life.
That's all I have for today; thank you for stopping by! Up next is Sue Plote at This Pink Rooster. I can't wait to see what she did with this suite. Or you can click the Previous button to go back to Linda Calahan's blog, Stampin' Seasons.
