Happy October! We are back to review another stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. This set just came out this spring, and there are so many ways to use it!
If you are following along from the beginning, I am the first stop this time! If you started somewhere in the middle and are following around the loop, then you just arrived from Nancy Smith's blog. I can't wait to see what she made! If you get lost, you can always find your way back on track on the official Stamp Review Crew blog post for this hop, where the links always take you exactly where you want to go :)
I have 3 cards for you today, and I think I used this set differently than you have seen it used a lot.
The hearts are stamped on Pool Party cardstock with Versamark and then Pearl Perfect Pearls was brushed on.
I colored the rhinestones with Blendabilities markers. I love that I can color my embellishments to match this way!
Thank You Lines, Fruitwood Birthday, Sponged Fruit Hello, and Dappled Fruit.
For this card, I just stamped over the DSP with several colors and the long streak image. I must have a thing for that image, I sure used it a lot! I then stamped the "thank" and "you" images from the Work of Art set in 2 colors and then punched it out with the 1-3/8" Circle punch. The other 2 circles are from the Circles framelits. More coloring with Blendabilities on rhinestones to add just the perfect touch. I know they look like pearls on the photo but they really are rhinestones. It must be a trick of the lighting.
I cut out a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock with the large label from Apothecary Accents framelits, then used Generational stamping with the long streak stamp (again!) in Strawberry Slush ink, and filled in between with the retired Illuminate ink (I love it so much, I bought 2 ink refills for this ink pad). Then I pierced around the label with the coordinating Paper Piercing Pack, and outlined with the white gel pen.
I punched out a few Whisper White hearts and stamped them with the chevron, the circle, and the smaller paint swoosh images in Strawberry Slush and Crumb Cake-again with the generational stamping. I outlined the hearts with a Basic Black marker to make them pop a bit more. I stamped "Happy Together" from And Many More in black ink on the center heart.
Then I decided I needed a couple of little burlap hears, so I took a 3" piece of Burlap ribbon and covered the back with Sticky Strip, then die-cut 2 of the smallest hearts from the Hearts framelits.
This time I colored some pearls with the Blendas, so pretty!
The Crumb Cake panel is embossed with the Arrows embossing folder, and the card base and the Crumb Cake panel have the corners rounded. All of the elements are popped up on dimensionals.
That's it for me! It's time to go check out what Ann Schach has created. She is a genius!!
