The Stamp Review Crew - Sale-A-Bration!
Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Sale-A-Bration 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 Linda Callahan's blog, Stampin' Seasons, welcome! There are eleven of us today, and I can't wait to see what everyone chose to highlight!
My choice is something coming in a couple weeks - the Sale-A-Bration Second Release! I really like the Tags in Bloom photopolymer stamp set, and positively adore the new specialty DSP, so that's my share today. This is the stamp set...
And here is the first card made with it. The floral tag was stamped in black, with Lovely Lipstick as the filler stamp for the blooms and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.
Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum is the background, with Pear Pizzazz DSP as the mat behind the image. I did fussy cut the floral tag and single blossom, but the stitched tag was punched with the Label Me Lovely punch. Another bit of Sale-A-Bration product is the So Saffron metallic baker's twine, part of the first SAB offering.
The next card uses a greeting from Tags in Bloom, and both specialty DSPs! The Pool Party vellum is the background on this card, and I must say, this vellum is fabulous - you can't see the adhesive! No more trying to hide glue dots behind embellishments, LOL!
I used sponge daubers to add Bermuda Bay and Mossy Meadow to the Flowering Foils DSP, then fussy cut and popped the blossoms up on dimensionals. The greeting was cut with a Stitched So Sweetly die, and some sequins from the Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins were added to complete the card.
Up next is Kelly Kent at My Papercraft Journey. I can't wait to see what she made!
