Stamp Review Crew: Petal Palette
Hello friends! Are you enjoying your February? Is it cold and blustery, or warm and sunny? Are you starting to see some garden bounty, or are you planning your future garden and dreaming of fresh tomatoes and beautiful flowers?

Well, the Stamp Review Crew is warming up our February with the lovely Petal Palette stamp set! I love this set, and the coordinating dies are going to be staples in my craft room for a long time to come.

For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Stesha Bloodhart's blog. Not only is her photography spot on, her creations are to die for!

I am currently in a but of a crafting I have not made as many projects as I usually do. I was supposed to go to a Going Away party for a co-worker who is moving away, but Mother Nature dumped about a foot of snow on us today and the party was cancelled.

Yes, we are Minnesotans, and we get to work and school through whatever we have to. However, we are smart enough to prioritize our risky travel, and some people would have had to drive 60 miles to get to the party. We are pretty spread out up here.

Why the lead-up story? Well, this is the card I created for my co-worker. I have actually worked with her off and on since 2004, I think. Nurses are rather mobile, changing positions fairly frequently. Val and I worked together in an Urgent Care before working together in this ER for the last 5+ years. I am going to miss her! And I am unlikely to move to South Dakota... so I probably won't work with her again.

This card has a lot die-cutting and watercolor, some of my go-to techniques when I am not feeling the mojo. But please don't blame the stamp set! I blame February.... we still have at least 2 months of winter left here...

Inside, I used sentiments from Wild About Flowers. I love that set, but I think I have used the sentiments more than the images!
I also made this scrapbook page/wall art yesterday for a different blog hop. I could not resist using this set here! Check out the beautiful story behind the photos here:

And now, Ann Schach! I can't wait to see what layering genius move she has come up with this time 😊

Sorry to hear you lost your mojo Tanya. But if this is what lost mojo looks like we are in for some real stunners when you find it! Your card is really elegant - love the soft watercolouring - and your scrapbook page is so rich and vibrant. While you are having snow we are having a heat wave with super high humidity in my part of Australia so I think we at completely opposite ends of the climate spectrum at present.

Tanya, I absolutely LOVE this card. The colors are soft and the gold is vibrant. The design can lend itself to so many occasions. Very elegant. Thanks for sharing it.

Ann Schach said...

The gold foil die cuts are so classy and elegant, Tanya! The card is to die for. I do believe your mojo is back!!! As always, you are such an inspiration...

WebDeb said...

When your mojo is at its lowest, you're still a fabulous paper crafter! Thanks for all the ideas ... love the congrats card.

What a sweet, BEAUTIFUL card for your coworker! Every time I look at your creations, my mouth hangs open and a whispered "Wow" comes out. Just thought you should know that. :)

Two beautiful projects. Love the combination of the die with the stamps on your card.
