It's the third Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators focused on sharing a ton of ideas featuring a single stamp set. This week it's a set called Petite Petals. You have likely come from Rochelle Blok's blog on your way through this amazing hop. If you get lost, simply click on the banner for a list of participants and get back on track.
As you all know, I'm inspired by - well - inspiration! On May 16th my partner Rick and I started an amazing 22 day adventure visiting, among other cities, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, St John's NF, Belfast, Dublin, and London! We boarded a cruise ship in Montreal after a few days in Toronto and a train ride north. The photo above was a piece of blown glass artwork in one of the stairways on our ship. This was just the beginning of the inspiration on this trip. And it's the perfect inspiration for Petite Petals.
Step by Step Tips:
- I wanted something other than just the Petite Petals mounted on the Very Vanilla card stock, but I wanted to also stay true to the stamp set challenge. I try to only use the featured stamp set. So I relied on the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for texture and Hello You Thinlits for the sentiment. Tear and Tap is the perfect product - new to Stampin' UP! - to adhere textured card stock to a flat surface. When it sticks, it's stuck! It's great for all your 3D projects too!
- Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, Pacific Point, and Blackberry Bliss provided the perfect color match stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and punched out using the Petite Petal Punch. Why fussy cut when you can punch?
- I opted to create an asymmetrical look by placing the matted image towards the top of the card. This allowed me to attach the “Thanks” sentiment below.
- I used Basic Black card stock for the matting and the sentiment to create a balance. I hope you like it!
