Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is our favorite new Sale-A-Bration stamp set. This was a no-brainer for me....I LOVE the Beautifully Happy stamp set! You can stamp and then use the filler stamp to quickly add color, or color the image with Stampin' Blends, Watercolor Pencils, Blending Brushes, or Sponge Daubers.
I used a combination of Light Mossy Meadow and Dark Shaded Spruce to get a Garden Green-like shade for the large leaves to match the mat and card base. I think it turned out fairly well, since we don't have Garden Green Blends. (WHY don't we, Stampin' Up!?)
I was going to use some gorgeous SAB Designer Paper for the background, but since so much of it would be covered by the double-matted image, I decided to just stamp my own with the bee and single floral stamp using Fresh Freesia stamped off. That way I'm not wasting the pretty papers!
That's all I have to share today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
