Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Blessings of Home 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 Betty's blog, Kitty Stamp, welcome! There are eight of us today, and I can't wait to see what everyone created!
Blessings of Home is a seven piece cling stamp set with a matching eleven piece die set called Flowers of Home Dies. This is one of my favorite sets in the mini because the line art is great for coloring! That being said, my first card has no real noticeable coloring, LOL!
I heat embossed the large flower image on Misty Moonlight and used a dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blend to barely shade the flowers. The smaller flower image was stamped in Misty Moonlight and not colored.
The silver stitched rectangle is from the Blue Foil Specialty Paper that will be available to order March 1st. I think blue and silver is such a great combination!
I always forget to show the inside of the card, but this time I remembered to snap a picture showing a peek of the inside.
The second card did involve coloring. I sponged some Basic Gray on the Heart & Home DSP to make a shadow behind the image. The floral image was stamped in Basic Gray and colored with Smoky Slate, Pale Papaya, and Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends.
Just the THANK YOU part of that greeting stamp was inked. I could have masked off the part I didn't want, but I was able to carefully tap the pad on just the part I did want. (That doesn't always work, LOL.)
That's all I have for today, so click NEXT to see what Deb at Heartfelt Inkspiration has made!
Oooh! I always learn something about coloring from you, so thank you for the spring flowers! (Although I adore Misty Moonlight and your positive/negative take!)ReplyDelete
