Welcome to the first Stamp Review Crew of 2015. If you’re hopping in order, you just came from Rochelle’s blog. She has such a fun, fresh style. But you can join in at any point. If you get lost, click the banner at the top to go the Stamp Review Crew blog.
This week we are featuring the Perfect Pennants stamp set. They were designed to work with the Banners framelits set. While they work great together, today I’m only using the stamps and not the framelits.
I am doubling up this week. I have so many new things to try out that I’m falling behind. I used the Make A Wish sentiment stamp with December’s Paper Pumpkin kit. The card stock in the kit was Basic Gray, so I embossed the image in white. Then I completed the card by punching out the stars and putting them with the colored sequins behind the “Polaroid” filmstrip. I stamped the envelope, too, with the stamp that matches the font of the happy birthday sticker. The colors in the kit are Pistachio Pudding, Rose Red, and Island Indigo. They are much prettier in person.
For my next card, I paired one of the sentiments with Sheltering Tree, a new set in the Occasions catalog. I’m having a lot of fun with this set. I used Pistachio Pudding and Rose Red again because I thought it looked so good on the cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit. What do you think?
Again, the Pistachio Pudding is much prettier IRL
One more card – this is one I made awhile back, but never posted. We made several of these for Operation Write Home. It’s based off a design someone else did, but when I looked for the information to give credit, I couldn’t find where it came from. I modified the flowers we used, but much of the design came from the unknown designer. If you know where the original card came from, please let me know and I’ll give the appropriate credit.
Finally, a blast from the not too distant past. I used one of the sentiments from this stamp set for the cover of my Thanksgiving mini album.
Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. I think that’s such an appropriate sentiment. I probably use that stamp more than any other in this set. Something to keep in mind for 2015. 🙂
