Stamp Review Crew: Wetlands Edition
Oh my gosh, I am so excited about this round of the Stamp Review Crew! This is one of my absolute favorite sets that came out in the last catalog. It can take you from the forest and lakes right to the beach!! Love it!!

If you started at the beginning of the hop, you just arrived from Lisa Young's blog. Such natural beauty, right?! If I am your first stop, thanks for letting me be your first ;) If you get lost along the way at any time, you can refer back to the Stamp Review Crew post for this hop. You can check out any of our past hops there too. The links always go right to the correct post for the specific hop :)

My first project is a Very Vanilla card with a watercolor paper banner. I stamped the birds image and the Thank You sentiment after I watercolored with Calypso Coral and So Saffron and let that dry! I love how this card turned out!
  • Stamps: Wetlands, Another Thank You, Positively Chevrons
  • Ink: So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Gold Encore
  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Watercolor
  • Other: Big Shot with Banners framelit, Gold Sequin trim, Burlap ribbon, dimensionals, sewing machine and thread
 There are a few more little birds on the inside, in Gold ink again :)

I decided to play with my new Blendabilities markers and one of the new In-Colors for this card. I am already obsessed with these alcohol markers! The embossed layer is on dimesionals and I paper pierced on and around the oval for added detail. The Blackberry Bliss and the Wisteria Wonder go together surprisingly well here!
  • Stamps: Wetlands
  • Ink: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry , Momento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Blackberry Bliss, Wisteria Wonder Core'dinations, Naturals White
  • Other: Big Shot with Ovals framelits and Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Sanding Block, Signo white gel pen, Occasions Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat, Dimensionals
 And, of course, I repeated the image on the inside.

 This card grew from the white banner and senitment piece that were just laying on my desk :) The ribbon behind them is the 7/8" Natural cotton ribbon stamped with a dotty image in Gold Encore ink. Slick, I tell you!
  • Stamps: Wetlands, Perfect Pennants, Happy Watercolor
  • Ink:Whisper White, Gold Encore
  • Paper: Whisper WHite, Blushing Bride
  • Other: Big Shop with Banners and Chalk Talk framelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat, Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, Signo white gel pen, Gold Sequin Trim, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 7/8" Natural Cotton ribbon, Dimensionals
 Then inside, I did a set of generational stamping in Gold Encore ink. I love how shimmery and lovely this ink is, don't you?!

Well, that's all I have for you this hop. Now fly away to Rita Wright's blog and see what delights she has for us!

Outstanding cards, Tanya! I am especially impressed with the purple card - you made it so feminine with the background and those purple flowers. One more reason I love this stamp set!

I am so inspired and amazed at your beautiful work, Tanya! Love the way each card highlights the set in a different style. I think each one is my favorite until I study the next one.

Three great cards Tanya. The pink and gold are so unexpected but so pretty. The first card is my favorite. Feels like I'm at the beach at sunset.
