Stamp Review Crew Bonus Hop - Sale-A-Bration!

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Sale-A-Bration edition! The "Crew" is 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 Kim's blog, welcome! There are ten of us today - I guess everyone loves the SAB offerings! And there is a lot to love!!! I used four of the six stamp sets available, as well as some SAB ribbon and gems.

First up is a simple card made with the Softly Sophisticated stamp set. This set is bundled with an embossing folder (which I used on the next card). The Granny Apple Green stems and Pool Party flowers were stamped repeatedly along the bottom of the white panel, and that gorgeous Pool Party Crinkle Ribbon was added below.

After adhering the stamped panel to the Pool Party card base, the greeting was stamped and cut with a Stylish Shapes die, and layered over a Pool Party Stylish Shapes die cut. Then Pool Party Opaque Faceted Gems completed the card.

The second card was made for a friend who is expecting her first baby (a boy!) this Spring. I chose a kind of neutral color scheme with Soft Sea Foam and Pecan Pie. The images were stamped with Pecan Pie and colored with Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends.

The image panel was cut with the Countryside Corners dies, and I shortened it by running it through the SCEM with the die moved over a bit.

A strip of Soft Sea Foam was embossed with the folder from the bundle mentioned above, and those darling elephants were stamped with VersaMark on the Pecan Pie card base. More Opaque Faceted Gems and a Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding bow finished it off.

And finally, my favorite of the bunch...the Detailed Dogwood card. I love it when the dogwoods are in bloom here, so I was thrilled to see this stamp set! I stamped the Granny Apple Green dots on the white background, alternating fully inked and stamped off for a subtle gradation in color.

The dogwood blossoms and buds were stamped in Smoky Slate and colored with Bubble Bath and Granny Apple Green Blends, then fussy cut. (Man, I sure could have used some dies for this set!) I then stamped the greeting from Heartfelt Hellos and cut it with a Tailor Made Tags die.

After adhering the blossoms to the tag, everything was popped up on dimensionals, with a Bubble Bath Bow and some Berry Burst sequins (Adhesive-backed Sequins Trio) added.
