Stamp Review Crew – Wetlands


Welcome back to another edition of the Stamp Review Crew blog hop.  This time around, we’re featuring the Wetlands stamp set. I love this set and I’ve seen some awesome cards made with it. Sometimes, however, when you’ve seen everyone else’s ideas, it’s hard to come up with something new. So I showed the set to my husband and asked him what it made him think of. He thought it would look great if the goose was highlighted against a setting sun.

I don’t usually use such a large image for my cards, so I was a little stumped as to how to best show it off. I found a card sketch at a blog called Card Positioning Systems from 2011 that I thought would work well. I also used the Blackberry Bliss paper from the new in colors. It may be my favorite new in color.

When I showed the card to my husband, I think it made him happy that I took his idea. Maybe I need to listen to him more. 😉
