Welcome to the first Monday of the month... and another Stamp Review Crew hop! Can you believe it's MAY already??? 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. Today we are featuring Incredible Like You, which is another one of the stamp sets that is retiring the end of this month. It is a 15 piece photopolymer set with fun images and fabulous sentiments!
You may have come from Stesha's blog, Stampin' Hoot. Weren't her projects delightful? She is fourth on the list, and there are ten of us today like last week. Just follow the links to see everything!
I have two cards to share today. The first one focuses more on the images, with a little "something old, something new" thrown in. On this I used the stem, leaf, blossom, and dots.
The flower panel was stamped randomly with the dots in Soft Sea Foam, then the stem was stamped twice in Mossy Meadow, stacking one on top of the other (which was easy-peasy since they are photopolymer and I can see where I'm stamping).
Old Olive leaves were added and the blossom was stamped in Poppy Parade and fussy cut. The "something old" is the stamp set (obviously) and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.The "something new" is the beautiful Garden Lane DSP, and the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.
For my next card, I wanted to use just a sentiment and DSP. The birds in the Bird Ballad DSP are positively charming, and I thought they would pair perfectly with the sentiment! I fussy cut the trio of birds, and then used the reverse side of the bird pattern as a background. I'm always in a quandary when I love BOTH sides of the DSP!
For this card, I added a bit of texture to the DSP with the Subtle embossing folder.
The "something old" is the stamp set, and the retiring Love What You Do Artisan Pearls, and the "something New" is the Bird Ballad DSP, and the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon.
That's all for from me today - up next is Lauren over at a Crafty Little Peach. I'm sure she's rocking this set, too!
