Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Beautiful You


Hello and Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! This week's featured stamp set is: Beautiful You!

If you're already hopping, then you've just come from the Talented Nikki Spencer's Blog. If you're just joining, No Problem! Start here and follow the buttons below!

So... thank goodness for the Stamp Review Crew blog hops. If it wasn't for these hops, I may never remember to go back and create with stamp sets that I actually have! I'm been so focused on the amazing holiday catalogue, that I'm like: "Annual catalogue? What annual catalogue?" "Beautiful You? What holiday set is that!?!" LOL

But seriously... I absolutely love this set and was really happy to see it carry over into the annual catalogue. It has beautiful, carefree images and wonderful sayings. Definitely a must have for anyones collection.

My layout today is pretty clean and simple, however I did add some intricate details with my embellishments.

Since I used the lady with the umbrella image, I decided to create the look of rain with the Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestone Basic Jewels and let hang down over my card. What do you think? Does it work?

My colour combo is Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Pool Party and Very Vanilla. My DSP is from the holiday DSP pack: "Around the World".

The lady is stamped in versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Thanks for hopping in. Next up is the Talented Yapha Mason's Blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
