Stamp Review Crew: Summer Silhouettes Edition
Welcome to this edition of the Stamp Review Crew! If this is your first time, then hey! We are so glad you found us! If you have been hopping with us for a while, so glad to see you back :) This dedicated group of demonstrators hosts a blog hop the first and third Mondays of every month and we all use the same stamp set to show you a variety of ways to use it. The blog hop is always set up in a loop, and the links will always take you straight to the link you are looking for. If you get lost, or would like to see the hops you have missed, you can find it all on the Stamp Review Crew blog. This time, we are featuring Summer Silhouettes. If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Cindy Beach's blog. Woo-hoo, that girl can stamp!
We are in full summer swing right now and it seemed like a good time to pull out a floral set :) There is a nice variety of floral images to work with in this set, and I bet that we will find a way to sneak some masculine stuff in even!

I went a little crazy creating my own DSP on this card, but I think it pulls together nicely. First I stamped the branch of leaves image all over the card base in Whisper White and added little gold berries with the Gold Stampin' Dazzle marker that is available again in the main catalog! I was regretting not buying it when it was in the Holiday Mini.  I stamped the lattice motif repeatedly on the Baked Brown Sugar,  die cut and embossed a circle of Crumb Cake, then added little gold flowers in the debossed spaces, and stamped flowers in Crumb Cake and Gold ink on a White circle. The frilly edged piece is vellum die cut with an Edgelit.

So pretty! Love the card base with the large leaves (white on kraft) - so pretty and in a calming, neutral way.
