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 focusing on a single stamp set. This week we're featuring Paisleys & Posies. You have likely come from Tanya Boser on your way through this amazing hop.

This card was created many months ago when I was trying to determine a good combination of colors for the roses. My inspiration for the color palette was for a Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I throw NOTHING away, so when I found this trio of roses, it was the inspiration for today's SRC challenge. I hope you enjoy it!
Step by Step Tips:
- I decided I wanted to make this a gate fold card. So the Wild Wasabi base card of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" was scored on the long side at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"
- the hummingbird was stamped on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock using Wild Wasabi for layer #1, Emerald Ivy for level #2, and Calypso Coral for level #3. Then I measured 1 7/8" from the left edge and drew a light pencil line. I cut along the line to the hummingbird, and then fussy cut the head of the hummingbird.
- The three roses are created using Crajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Perfect Plum. In each case level #1 was stamped off twice, level #2 was stamped off once, and level #3 was full strength.
- The notched sentiment was created using a 1/2" hole punch. Simple!
