The Stamp Review Crew - Sale-a-Bration Bonus

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's BONUS 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 like today. If you landed here from Holly's blog, Rubber Redneck, welcome! There are ELEVEN of us today, so be prepared for lots of inspiration.

There are seven stamps sets (including the Host set) and four great Designer Series Papers in the brochure that you can earn for free with a qualifying purchase, so there should be a wonderful variety of projects on this hop. To see them all, click the image above.

For today's creations I chose images and greetings from Calming Camellia (the host set) and a greeting from Friendly Hello, along with DSP from Daffodil Afternoon. Kind of a mish-mash of products, but it works!

This card practically made itself. The daffodil pattern didn't need anything but a greeting, which came from Friendly Hello.

I heat embossed it on black and added a Crushed Curry banner behind to coordinate with the Crushed Curry in the daffodils.I couldn't figure out how to add bling, so I used a few loops of gold cord for extra shine.

The background images on the second card (Calming Camellia) were stamped with Pear Pizzazz and matted on Mossy Meadow. The embossed background is the splatter folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D embossing folder set.

Some Gold Shimmer Ribbon and Brushed Brass Butterflies added the subtle shine I wanted.

The last card also uses a pattern from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP pack. I brushed some Blackberry Bliss on it for a shadow background to the Blackberry Bliss stamped image. A bit of Pale Papaya was added to the blossoms to make them pop a little more, then it was fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals.

I adore the greetings and the fonts used in Calming Camellia, and the birthday greeting is sooo pretty with the blossoms!

That's my share for today, so click NEXT to see what Lou at With a Bow on Top has made!
