Stamp Review Crew – Crazy About You

SRC-Crazy-About-You-banner

Welcome to another edition of the Stamp Review Crew. In case you’re new here, we’re a group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators from all over the world who get together to do a blog hop on the first and third Monday of each month. We focus on a single stamp set so that you can see the variety of ways in which to use it.

Looks like I’m kicking off the hop today, but you can start from anywhere and hop forwards or back. Today we’re highlighting the Crazy About You stamp set. This versatile set has a variety of words and phrases that you can use alone or in conjunction with the coordinating Hello You framelits.

The card base started out as something entirely different that I set aside because it wasn’t working for me. The paper is from the Farmers Market designer series paper. I love how it looks like an old wooden fence. And when I looked at the larger flower in the stamp set, it reminded me of the purple clementine flowering vines that cover an old wooden fence in my neighborhood. So here is how my card came together:

It’s a little overcast here, so the picture is not as vibrant as the card is. I stamped the flowers with Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum and used 1-3 layers. The centers are candy dots (so fun). I love the look I see on a lot of cards lately of words that look like they were punched from a labeler, so I used white embossing powder on black paper. I think it ties in well with the black “hello” and the knotholes in the wooden fence.

I think it makes for a fun card to give to someone. What do you think?

Now you can hop on over to Holly’s blog to see what she has in store. If you get lost at anytime, just click the banner at the top of this page to see the entire list of blogs. I guarantee you’ll find some great ideas for this stamp set!

    Nancy, there are so many things I like about this creation, I don’t know where to start. Let’s just use your color palette! So beautifully calm and serene. Reminds me of a country garden.
