Welcome BACK!! This is the Stampin’ UP’s 25th Anniversary “Best of ” Blog Tour. This month, we are featuring the ‘Best of LOVE’ stamp set. Though it is aimed at being a valentine stamp set, I think there are many other ways you can use it. It’s got perfect images for weddings and other just ‘thinking’ of you kind of cards… so… here we go!!
“OLIVE YOU!! Get it??? (snort, snort…) I paired this olive stamp the from the Best of Love stamp with the Martini glass from Happy Hour stamp set. I love the pewter embossing powder. It melts SO smoothly.
Here is a little closer picture…
This is Lucky Limeade paper and ribbon… I’ve used the Melon Mambo prints paper pack for that polka-dot paper. And, of course, basic black…
The next sample is a little more elegant… Perfect for a wedding, bridal shower… or just a heart-felt thinking of you card.
I’m using the basic gray paper and I used the paper doilies from the Spring Occasions catalog… I cut the lattice die out of gray paper too and layered over. The silver glimmer and rich razzleberry flags give a little bit of color punch over the layers. And of course, I stamped and embossed the big heart image with clear embossing powder just to give it the tone-on-tone elegant look.
The vintage faceted button with a tidge of white baker’s twine tied in the holes finishes off the card. I left it plain, but a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes could be stamped on a white flag and added to the ensemble…
FUN STAMP SET!! Even though February is OVER, these will still be available until March 2014. Go ahead and get yours!! And, you’ll get a little decal and collector’s card. If you collect 6 decals between now and March 2014, you can trade it in for a free stamp set valued at $14.95 or less…
